Many Israelis dislike the Muslims in the UK who are spearheading the anti-Israel campaign but they are responding by helping anti-Muslim groups who stoke up hatred of Islam and incite violent attacks. Israel used to be thought of as an embattled socialist state. Many people in the Labour party looked upon on it as a model socialist state. Last year when the leader of the Labour party (Jewish himself) condemned Israel's attack on the Turkish flotilla he got one of the biggest applauses. When the attack on the flotilla was debated in the commons, Labour party leadership candidates competed with each other to be more critical of the Israelis and supportive of the Palestinians. Israel's best friends are now found in the UK Conservative party but they won't be in power forever.
