'I accept that the comments that Ken Livingstone has made make it more difficult for Londoners of Jewish faith to feel that the Labour Party is a place for them,' says mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.03:33 02.05.16 | 0 comments
This is a provocation by Hizbollah and Netanyahu will be eager to take up the bait. Remember the events in Gaza last year. The Israeli opinion polls were favoring the left. Hamas attacked a convoy Netanyahu took up the bait and the situation escalated. The last thing Hamas wants is a left/centrist Israeli government serious about negotiating with the P.A. As a result. Netanyahu strengthened in the polls but not sufficiently to overcome the centrist vote. Now that Israel is about to negotiate a coalition there is a Hizbollah provocation. Hizbollah also has no interest in a left/centrist government in Israel negotiating with the P.A. Don't be surprised if this strengthens Netanyahu's hand in forming the most right wing government possible. There is a long standing pattern of provocation by Muslim, and Jewish fundamentalists , not to mention our good ant-semitic Christian fundamentalist friends in the USA, whenever there is glimmer of hope for a settlement - a glimmer which continues to fade.
