Anti-Israel UK lawmaker blames Jews for rising anti-Semitism

THIS IS THE JEWISH GROUP!

LONDON — Reacting on a record high of anti-Semitic incidents in Britain in 2016, a well-known British lawmaker accused pro-Israel Jews of creating the situation by not criticizing the Jewish state.

The remark Thursday came from Jenny Tonge, who had represented the Liberal Democrat party in the upper house of the British Parliament before her suspension from the party in October for her penchant for anti-Israel rhetoric. Some of her critics allege that her rhetoric sometimes veers into anti-Semitism. Tonge has consistently denied these accusations.

On Thursday, Tonge sent an email to the Community Security Trust in reply to their report, sent to all lawmakers, that recorded a record 1,309 anti-Semitic incidents last year in the United Kingdom, constituting a 36-percent rise over 2015, the Jewish News reported.

“Do you NEVER consider that the actions of the Israeli government are contributing towards this rise?” Tonge wrote. “If the Board of Deputies and the CST spoke up against the abuse if (sic) human rights, flagrant disregard of international law and the Geneva Conventions they would do much to improve the situation here.”

2. So, like so many

 

she has trouble differentiating between Jews and Israel and like all those other, she's an imbecile. Blaming the victims - a time honored trait among disgusting bigots.
