Lib Dem MP David Ward declines to apologise for Gaza tweet

A Lib Dem MP has declined to apologise for widely criticised comments on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

David Ward tweeted on Tuesday: "The big question is - if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? - probably yes."

Mr Ward was suspended from the Lib Dem parliamentary party in July 2013 and had the whip withdrawn for three months over comments he made about Israel.

A Lib Dem spokesman said it "utterly condemned" the MP's latest remarks, which could prompt disciplinary action.

Mr Ward, the MP for Bradford East, was asked on BBC Radio 5 live if he stood by the tweet or would apologise for it.

He said he condemned violence on both sides of the conflict, but had been seeking to understand the motives of those firing rockets at Israel.

"The question is why would they want to fire missiles when they know that the missiles will result in further Palestinian deaths, to a disproportionate level? Why are they doing it?" he said.

"They are doing it because they are absolutely desperate and politicians in the West are failing them."

'Appalling'

He added: "The people in Gaza cannot escape, they are hemmed in by land, sea and air. I understand the plight of the people firing the rockets."

Mr Ward's comments came as the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged Israel and the Palestinians to "stop fighting" and "start talking" to end the conflict in Gaza.

More than 600 Palestinians and 30 Israelis have been killed in the past 14 days of fighting, officials say.

The MP for Bradford East commented on the crisis in a series of tweets on Wednesday. In a follow-up message, he wrote: "Ich bin ein #palestinian - the West must make up its mind - which side is it on?"

A Labour spokesman said: "At a time when all sides should be working for a ceasefire and a peaceful settlement, it defies belief that a Liberal Democrat MP should tweet something so vile and irresponsible."

Conservative Party chairman Grant Shapps urged Mr Ward to withdraw the "appalling" comments.

He said: "No MP should tweet what's essentially incitement to violence. Completely irresponsible."

'Period of calm'

A Lib Dem spokesman said: "Nick Clegg has been at the forefront of calling for peace in Israel and Gaza.

"We utterly condemn David Ward's comments, they are not representative of the Liberal Democrats.

"The party takes this matter very seriously and will treat it as a disciplinary issue."

Mr Ward has had a long-running dispute with the party's leadership over his use of language with regard to Israel. He posted a tweet last year calling the country an "apartheid state" and saying that "Zionists" were "losing the battle".

He also spoke to BBC Radio Leeds about the latest conflict, saying: "There will be a ceasefire, then there will be a period of calm.

"But during that period of calm when hopefully people are not being murdered, there will still be Palestinians who are being shot by the Israeli forces, they will still be beaten up, there will still be child detentions - that to the Israelis is peace.

"When someone is not firing a rocket at Israel, that is peace."

Prime Minister David Cameron has urged Israel to "exercise restraint" in its military operations and to avoid targeting civilians.

But he has also defended its right to self-defence and said the "fastest way" to bring about a ceasefire would be for Hamas militants in Gaza to stop firing rockets into Israel.

More than 50 former Israeli soldiers have refused to serve in the nation’s reserve force, citing regret over their part in a military they said plays a central role in oppressing Palestinians, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

“We found that troops who operate in the occupied territories aren’t the only ones enforcing the mechanisms of control over Palestinian lives. In truth, the entire military is implicated. For that reason, we now refuse to participate in our reserve duties, and we support all those who resist being called to service,” the soldiers wrote in a petition posted online and first reported by the newspaper.

While some Israelis have refused to serve in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank, the military’s structure is such that serving in any capacity forces one to play a role in the conflict, said the soldiers, most of whom are women who would have been exempted from combat.

“Many of us served in logistical and bureaucratic support roles; there, we found that the entire military helps implement the oppression of the Palestinians,” they said.

Their comments come as the conflict in Gaza continues to escalate, displacing thousands more Palestinians in the battered territory even as the United States presses both sides for an immediate ceasefire and longer-term peace plan.

Earlier this month, Israel said it was mobilizing more reservists in anticipation of increased fighting.

In the petition, the soldiers pointed to the army’s structure and fundamental role in Israeli society as reasons for being unable to decouple any form of service from the fighting.

“The military plays a central role in every action plan and proposal discussed in the national conversation, which explains the absence of any real argument about non-military solutions to the conflicts Israel has been locked in with its neighbors,” the soldiers wrote.

“To us, the current military operation and the way militarization affects Israeli society are inseparable.”

They said they opposed the Israeli Army and conscription law because of how women are limited to low-ranking secretarial positions and because of a screening system that discriminates against Jews whose families originate from Arab nations.

Most 18-year-olds must serve up to three years in the Israeli Defense Forces.

Some groups, such as ultra-Orthodox Jewish seminary students, had been exempted from service, but legislators this year moved to lift that exemption on such students starting in 2017.

Arab-Israelis are exempt from compulsory service.

India with Palestine..

India's dithering stand on foreign relation once again came to the fore on Tuesday when it voted in favour of United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution to launch a probe into Israel's offensive attack on Gaza. This flip-flop of stand gets its credence from recent events. Only a day before this tough stand, Indian Government had blocked resolution against Israel in Parliament amid high uproar. Earlier this month, India along with BRICS partners had voted for censuring Israel on this conflicting issue.
This new found assertion has taken place in the backdrop of bloodbath in the Gaza Strip where because of Israel and Palestine's ‘not relenting' attitude, over 680 Palestinians and 31 Israelis have died during the 16-day conflict. Including India, Russia, China and South Africa, 24 other countries have also voted in support of the resolution, while 17 nations abstained from it in the 46-member council. Only country who voted against the resolution is United States while all European countries abstained it.
Earlier, Government had given clear indication that India believes in maintaining equidistant relation from both the country in question.
"We remain hopeful that a sustainable ceasefire will be reached between the two sides, linked to the resumption of the peace process, for a comprehensive resolution of the Palestinian issue," said Asoke Mukerji, who is India's Permanent Representative to the UN.
India supported Palestine in past
In past, India had supported Palestine and its cause wholeheartedly. India voted against partition of Palestine in United Nations General Assembly in 1947. Similarly, in 1974, India was the only one, apart from Arab countries who recognised Palestine liberation organization (PLO). India also gave its positive gesture when Palestine was declared independent in 1988.
What happened in Parliament?
On Monday, the Government took a neutral approach and in a veiled tone maintained that peace in the region is needed and both (Israel-Palestine) should accept Egypt's offer of peace talks.
"There is absolutely no change in India's policy towards Palestine, which is that we fully support the Palestinian cause while maintaining good relations with Israel," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said, while replying question in Parliament.
After giving in for Opposition's demand for discussion, the government blocked a resolution against Israel in Parliament and maintained that India will not take side of any of the country.
Government should be pragmatic in its approach
The only question is why Government is giving the impression that India is in a fix on the issue. The Gaza conflict and followed impact of it is influencing geo-politics of whole of the West and South Asia.
West Asia is the economic lifeline for India and country can't afford to displease them as the economy is in flagging state. Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia are the biggest oil and gas suppliers for our country. Though India don't want to angry its long-time ally Israel with which it has close military ties and trade relations. One more reason is major European countries along with US have been backing Israel on the conflicting Gaza crisis.
Rather than being indecisive on the issue, India must be more pragmatic in its approach. World should get the message that India has nerve to speak on the matter of truth and Modi Government has already proved it in the recent past. On the matter of BRICS development Bank, bringing back nurses from strife-torn Iraq are some of the examples where Modi Government proved its diplomatic knack. So, India should always stand by what is in the larger interest of the country.

Outrage as French politician compares dead Palestinian child to Halal meat

Jacques Renaud warned there will be 'grave consequences' over remark
His comment came as thousands prepared to protest in Paris.

An outspoken pro-Israel politician caused outrage across France today by comparing the mutilated corpse of a Palestinian child to ‘Halal meat’.

Jacques Renaud, the right wing deputy mayor affiliated to the UMP opposition, portrayed the killing of an infant in the Gaza Strip as being similar to animals being slaughtered according to Islamic ritual.

Mr Renaud's comment came as thousands prepared to take to the streets of Paris in a pro-Palestine demonstration which many fear will lead to violence.

Mr Renaud's response to the tweet, which has been deleted from his account, but has been re-tweeted by several Twitter users

Jewish groups have accused anti-Semites of hijacking the rallies, while thousands of Muslims taking part say they are being unfairly labelled as extremists.

Mr Renaud, 66, who is also a successful businessman, wrote on Twitter: ‘Great support to all the attacked Jews of France, we are in the 21st Century, a bit of humanity and civility would be welcome.’

A critic responded by tweeting a picture of a decapitated child, referring to the Israeli army having killed more than 200 children during its assault on Gaza.

In response to the image Mr Renaud replied: ‘It’s Halal meat, I suppose.’

Halal is Arabic for permissible, and refers to food which adheres to Islamic law, as defined in the Koran.

Halal meat is a big issue in France, where the five million plus Muslim community regularly complains about government attempts to outlaw it.

Mr Renaud is a firm supporter of Israel and regularly takes to Twitter to attack Hamas, the ruling authority in Gaza.

Stephane Piednoir, the UMP mayor of Montreuil-Juigne was on holiday so not able to respond to his assistant’s words, but a spokesman said there would be ‘grave consequences’ if the comments turned out to be true. Mr Renaud was not available for comment.

Pro-Palestinian protesters hold a giant Palestinian flag during protests in Paris today against violence in the Gaza Strip; officials fear the protest could lead to further violence

A banned pro-Palestine march ended in violence on Saturday, and on Sunday a synagogue in a northern suburb of Paris was threatened by a mob of rioters.

Despite the street violence, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said tonight’s protests could go ahead, with security stepped up across the capital.

Mr Cazeneuve said: ‘I have given specific orders to security forces so they can quickly intervene if any anti-Semitic acts are committed.’

Anti-Semitic chants are banned under French criminal law and " to date " there has been no evidence of any being used on the marchers.
