    I am a Jew. I am critical of zionist Israel's injustice to Palestinians and non Jewish citizens. I do not wish to leave my homeland in the UK and occupy anothers land and rename it and claim it as retribution and reparations for a 1000 years of Christian European antisemitism. I criticise the USA, the UK and EC for funding Israel for their own political and strategic interests for a foothold in the Mid East. These governments and their arab allies have the final responsibility for the decades of war and tragedy they perpetuate on all the peoples in the region. I defend my and others right to speak my opinions whether they are for or at odds with the ruling powers. This attempt to silence Samira Ibrahim tells us what we need to know about who really DOES work for democracy and who works against it.
