    "Moreover Israel needs to break ALL military and diplomatic ties with the UK" Whoopty-do. Like they would care. Israel is an insignificant little country, most notable for its history, war crimes and barbarity. It's international purchases are small in the larger scheme of things and it produces nothing that cannot be produced elsewhere. The UK hardly needs Israel's help militarily. It fights heavily armed militants, not largely demilitarized civilians, women and children, so IDF tactics like using human shields are irrelevant. Israel should boycott the world. It would be insignificant. But when the world finally gets its act together and sanctions Israel, it will finally realize how small and weak it really is. Then it will realize that it should not have thumbed its nose at the world for so long. By all means, boycott all who criticize you. No one will care.
