    he claims he is ok with jews but against Israeli gov't policy, yet he says israelis can defend themselves as any other nation would. does this include russia vs. chechnya? how about sri lanka? he claims he was not in favour of cast lead where he says disproportionate force was used...but the statistics clearly show, a)israel was getting hammered disproportionately for 8 yrs by rockets and suicide bombers, and the stats further show that 300 civilians died and 800 hamas fighters died...that is a far cry from russian defense against chechny and sri lankan defense against the rebels where thousands upon thousands died...... I would like to ask him: just what is permissable as a response? when hamas places gazans in the line of fire, on roofs, in mosques, in UN schools, and places weapons in these places with children in the way, who is to blame for these deaths? Clegg is another jew baiter who loves to cling to; "some of my best friends are jews"...and his support for the law whereby anyone can issue a warrant for other heads of state is ridiculous; but, if they want to play it that way, ok, arrest obama, arrest chiraq, arrest sarkozy, arrest putin, etc...etc...etc....come on....his pandering to jews for his electoral success is eerily similar to someone else who promised seismic change. ANYONE?
