I want to thank International Development minister Douglas Alexander for visiting the Gaza Strip, and pledging aid. Because it typifies our cowardly subservience to the all-powerful pro-Israel lobby in America.
We looked away as Israel bombed the crap out of Gaza. When the 1,314 dead Palestinians temporarily sated Tel Aviv’s bloodlust, we sent a third-rate politician to pledge millions to replace all the buildings flattened by Israel’s military machine.
Thus putting up more targets for them to destroy the next time they feel the need to convince their people they are hard-liners who won’t be threatened by Arab infidels. At which point we’ll look away again. How proud our foreign policy makes me.
