It's an interesting situation really. Britain always gets accused on these sites of being full of anti-semites, and I'll probably now get accused of anti-semitism for even daring to raise the fact that Milliband is Jewish. But, it's true and it raises issues, just as it would if we had a Muslim foreign minister or one from an Iranian family. I don't think I believe the Daily Mail story because the Daily Mail is a desperate right-wing rag and this story looks suspiciously like Israel trying to confuse the situation and take the edge off any comeback. However, it does raise intersting questions for Milliband. So far he's let Israel off remarkably lightly on this. So does that mean he knew and approved? Does it mean his natural sympathies with Israel are affecting his jusdgement? Does it mean he's just carrying out government policy? Interesting.
