Suicide bombers inconvenienced by wall


The preposterous Jenny Tonge, who never saw an argument she didn't totally misunderstand, has been at it again, this time in a letter to the Indy:


Sir:

It should come as no surprise to anyone that suicide bombers in Iraq are Palestinians ("Iraq: the face of the enemy", 7 June). Israel's security wall is forcing them to export themselves to another arena to fight in this ridiculous "war" against terrorism being waged by the donkeys who lead us in the West.

The injustices to Palestinians, following the creation of the state of Israel and the subsequent brutal occupation by that country lies at the very roots of the causes of terrorism and the ideology of Osama bin Laden. In desperate attempts not to be accused of anti-Semitism, our leaders refuse to accept this and carry on supporting the USA and its military base in the Middle East called Israel.

If someone in power does not do something to restore Palestine, even if only to acknowledge that Israel must withdraw to the pre 1967 borders, and allow the Palestinians to form a viable country, we shall have no peace.

BARONESS JENNY TONGE
HOUSE OF LORDS

Oh dear oh dear.

I knew Palestinians objected to the disruption that the security fence causes in their everyday lives, but I had no idea it was this bad... not only does the wall make it difficult to get to work every day, but the suicide bombers have to schlep all the way across to Iraq... Fucking Israelis, eh?

Just goes to show that the utterly crass Baroness Tonge cares passionately about all people. Even suicide bombers. The election ad for the Lib Dems writes itself, doesn't it. "Suicide Bombers have feelings to."

As a founder-member of the Liberal Democrats the fact that she was ennobled rather than being thrown out of the party for her sympathies for suicide bombing innocent people just reinforces why I'm glad that I walked away from them.

Not "Liberal".

Not "Democratic".

I do not believe that you believe what you write.

You are not worth a decent Fisk you stupid woman.
