It is impossible to accurately assess how much damage the latest episodes of racism caused Labour, but at least in two constituencies which include Jewish communities, the party suffered losses.15:39 06.05.16 | 0 comments
More propaganda from a talkbacker. I travel extensively south of Jerusalem and there has been almost no settlement expansion there for several years. No land is being "eaten up". And the roads are all open to Palestinian traffic (except withing the Jewish towns, of course, where you do see Palestinian license plates of businessmen doing business). I challenge anybody who doubts this to come drive on Hwy 60 and any of the side roads - all open to Palestinians who move freely. Then go stand at a bus stop on Derekh Hebron road in Jerusalem and see the dozens of Palestinian buses every hour going to and from Bethlehem and other west bank towns south of Jerusalem. The anti-Israel movement tries to shove a lot of propaganda at you - don't swallow it all or you'll choke when you see the truth.
