UK Jewish MP : Israel acting like Nazis in Gaza

Labour MP Sir Gerald Kaufman, friend to both David Ben-Gurion and Yasser Arafat, speaking in the British House of Commons :

"My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town of Staszów. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed. Madam Deputy Speaker, my grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza.
The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploit the continuing guilt among Gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians. The implication is that Jewish lives are precious, but the lives of Palestinians do not count.

I suppose the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw Ghetto could have been dismissed as militants."

An extraordinary contrast to the mealy-mouthings of Harper and Iggy.

What has your MP said? Write to 'em with a link to Kaufman's speech.
