With many nations in the world with large Muslim/Arab communities anything in the Middle East that involves the murder of women and children and Israel will immediately light a fuse of revulsion and protest.
In London the mainstream media have been warned to avoid the subject in phone-in’s to avoid escalating tensions, but that is unrealistic. What Israel has done again, is look at its own security concerns and forget that of other nations like ours.
4000 known active Islamic terrorists operate in the UK, what more of an excuse do they need now to carry out a heinous act on people who are not from Israel?
Our Government condemned the violence but has done nothing to censure Israel. The Americans have stayed quiet, whilst only France and the UN have worded strong objections to the perceived over-reaction of the IDF.
Israeli leaders need to stop thinking about elections and consider that the security threat posed by Islamic groups was high, with the tension in the Middle East escalating we are in a new zone now.
Let’s all be vigilant and be responsible.
