Economic sanctions should be considered against Israel if it refuses to hand over soldiers accused of murdering two Britons, Sir Gerald Kaufman said yesterday.Being a little naive aren't we Gerald?
The Labour MP said the Israeli government should be forced to deal with that element of its armed forces "which goes around killing people wantonly".
Sir Gerald was speaking about Tom Hurndall, 22, shot dead by an Israeli sniper in April 2003, and James Miller, 34, a documentary maker killed by a single shot to the neck a month later.
An inquest jury found on Monday that Mr Hurndall had been unlawfully and intentionally killed. Last week, an inquest jury considering Mr Miller's death returned a verdict of unlawful killing.
"Israeli troops have murdered two British subjects and they must not be allowed to believe they can away with it," Sir Gerald said.
