The Persecution of an Atrocity

UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party shares power with his coalition partners the Liberal Democrats.  One of the LibDem MPs is David Ward who issued the following statement to mark Holocaust Memorial Day:

“Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”

Here is my email to Mr Ward:

My grandparents, uncles and aunts were so 'persecuted' at Auschwitz they never came back.
My father barely survived at 19 years old and died at 42 due to the experience.

So Mr Ward, what's an 'atrocity' in your book?
Is it 'forcing' Palestinians to vote in the free Jewish state? (1 million of them did last week, when they couldn't in most other Muslim countries.)
Or perhaps 'forcing' education on Palestinian youngsters, who make up 20% of Israel's university roll? 
Is it 'forcing' their womenfolk to drive cars, when they are banned from driving in Arab countries?

Ahh ... I know.
It must be that separation wall as you folks like to call it.
That's the atrocity!
Preventing Arab terrorists from killing more Jews.

Now I get it.

Today Rupert Murdoch was decent enough to apologize for a blood-libellous cartoon which was published in his Sunday Times newspaper on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day.  Even the cartoonist regretted the timing, albeit not the content. 

Mr Ward however is unrepentant. 
Hardly surprising when you consider some of his background ..HERE.
