Gerald Kaufman's defining speech



A Nazi soldier shot [my grandmother] in bed

My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza.

The current Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploit the continuing guilt among gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians.

On Sky News a few days ago, the spokeswoman for the Israeli army, Major Leibovich, was asked about the Israeli killing of, at that time, 800 Palestinians. The total is now 1,000.

She replied instantly that '500 of them were militants'. That was the reply of a Nazi. I suppose the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw ghetto could have been dismissed as militants.

Strong stuff from a British MP who called Golda Meir his friend.
