This is a great quote from David Latner in the UK Guardian.
It was amusing to read about the Palestinian groups seeking a warrant for alleged war crimes. British soldiers have said that Israel does no more than Britain and its allies are doing in Iraq and Afghanistan – and certainly no worse than the British against the IRA. And, of course, when the Germans bombed Britain in the second world war, killing thousands, the British responded by killing tens of thousands of German civilians. Gosh, why would anyone think Israel is being hypocritically singled out, and that the Palestinian groups are politicising the British court system?Yes, there is a lot of hypocrisy against Israel going around. Israel has done nothing that the UK itself hasn't done. Where are the indictments against UK politicians? Why are only Israeis being singled out? Could it be anti-Semitism? It makes one wonder.
