What we have seen in recent years particularly during Netanyahu's coalition is that Israeli politicians have been shielding themselves from legitimate criticism by comparing criticism of Israel's ruling elite with anti semitism.

The good thing for Israel is that Nick Clegg will never be in a position to change the United Kingdom's policy towards Israel.
