UK BARONESS TONGE QUITS OVER ISRAEL REMARK.
DAY 3925: THURSDAY MARCH 1ST 2012.
DAY 45 WITHOUT SHELTER.
There has been much mud slinging over the comments made by Baroness Tongue about the Israeli state that have led to her departure from the House of Lords.
At the heart of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, which is a very serious issue, is the fact that Palestinians do not enjoy the same rights as Israelis.
So while our dear leaders have rushed to condemn Baroness Tonge, what remains is that our dear leaders still lack any rational explanation as to why Palestinians should not and do not enjoy the same rights as Israelis.
Yet their own Balfour Declaration claimed that the rights of Palestinians would be upheld.
And it was only very recently that Khader Adnan finished his courageous non-violent 66 day hunger strike which helped to shine a light on the illegal nature of the administrative detention of Palestinians who are held indefinately without charge or trial.
Hana Shalabi who was released in the prisoner swap, only to be arrested and detained without charge again, is now into Day 14 of a hunger strike.
