LibDem Peer Says Israel “Will Not Be There Forever”

A LibDem Peer who was sacked as their health spokesman for anti-Israeli comments in 2010, has struck again. Video has emerged online of Jenny Tonge telling a meeting at Middlesex University last week:

“Beware Israel. Israel is not going to be there forever

It will not go on forever, it will not go on forever. Israel will lose it’s support will lose its support and then they will reap what they have sown.”

She also remained silent and did not protest when a fellow panellist, Ken O’Keefe, compared Jews to Nazis. Given Tonge has previous in this area, that includes accusing an IDF aid team of harvesting organs and spinning for Palestinian suicide bombers, Guido had to check whether Tonge still actually had the LibDem whip. She has, but is Nick Clegg really prepared to let her spew this sort of bile while serving under his party banner?

UPDATE: The Commentator has a full witness account of Jihad Jenny’s outburst.

    JayKay says:

    Fuck off you jew hating bastard So it’s ok for palestinians to rain rockets down on Israel and it’s children and attack a genuine democratic state is it?? A State where all its citizens can vote, a state that has Israeli arabs in Parliament and as part of its judiciary. A state to which moslems run to in order to be free. Try finding a Jew with rights in Iran, Iraq or indeed any benighted mohammedan country. You’ll be searching a long time. palestinians were offered full citizenship of Israel in 1948. Instead they decided to attack and thought that all their oil money would win the war. They lost and their ‘muslim’ brothers have kept them down ever since.

    Before accusing Israel look to the moslem world for the worst atrocities.

    I work in Israel so know that human rights are unequal; something that a western secular state would be justly criticised for if it was part of their constitution and society.

    Personally I think Israel is here to stay but not in its current form. Where there is gross inequality there will continue to radicalism, demonstration and alas, violence too. If peace is to be realised, such fundamental issues have to be addressed.

    I cannot stand Tonge and think her views on Israel abhorrent, but to be slightly fair to her you have decontextualised her comments. She said that American support for Israel would not go on forever, rather than that Israel wouldn’t go on forever.

    I’m sure that she would wish for the destruction of Israel, but that isn’t what she said in the clip, albeit her comment about Israel reaping what it has sown was obviously sinister in the extreme.

    Given that the two biggest parliamental groups are the Conservatie Friends of Israel and the Labour Friends of Israel (check it out) does anyone think we will get anything other than an Israeli slant on things?
    The things Israel does in the name of self defence would get them villified if anyone else did it. Kidnapping and murdering people in other people’s countries, ignoring far more UN resolutions than Saddam Hussein ever did and illegally occupying territory are not justified by self defence.They antagonise their neighbours instead of working out how to live with them.
    The woman may well be right. The Israelis have got to hit targets over a wide area if they take on Iran. The Iranians only need to get in a couple of good hits to destroy Israel. Everything is much more concentrated. If the Israelis had behaved themselves they might have had some allies in the region. Without American vetoes they would have been brought to heel years ago.
    They have a right to exist, but not to arrogantly throw their weight around under the shelter of the influence of their fellows behind America.

She is simply pointing out that one day the yanks will tire of supporting Israel (although from that perspective 9/11 was a bit of an own-goal from the religion of p*eace). And that without the support of the yanks the Israelis will be under a lot more pressure than they’re used to.

  95. 95

    There are a number of comments on this thread that seem to have swallowed the left wing line of “Israel = Bad, Palestinians + good – can do no wrong” wholeheartedly.

    I wish these ignorant knee-jerk ranters who spout their bullshit every time they hear the word “Israel” would learn some Middle East history at some time in their lives.

    Even before the advent of the 20th Century there was always enmity between Jews and Arabs in this part of the world. So called “Palestinians” (though there has NEVER been a state of Palestine) regularly murdered Jewish families in land grabs. These people now calling themselves “Palestinians are really of Jordanian origin. Once they’ve destroyed Israel, the current Palestinian leadership have acknowledged their next goal would be to conquer Jordan!

    Where does the term “illegal occupation” come from. The lands referred to were captured in 1967 and 1973 by Israel after THEY were attacked on both occasions by their Arab neighbours. Certainly the 1973 war was planned by Arab countries such as Syria and Egypt to coincide with the Jewish religious holiday, their thinking being that Israel would be unprepared and an easy target. They would have succeeded had it not been for the resilience of the Israeli military.

    I see the same lefties who criticise Israel for “illegal occupation” never did the same with Russia who occupied all of Eastern Europe, and ruled with an iron fist, after WW2, breaking their word on allowing the countries they “liberated” from the Nazis full independence and sovereignty.

    Let’s face it, judging by the examples of their Arab neighbours, Israel is a beacon of democracy in this region of the world. It’s the Arabs who seem to revel in killing others, even each other, when no other “enemy” is close to hand.

    Yes, the Israeli government have been responsible for things that I have considered wrong, but the continuous whitewashing of the Arabs, especially the murderous Palestinians who even teach their kids to hate and kill Jews, by the Left is becoming intolerable, even ridiculous in the face of all the evidence.

    Before 1947 they lived alongside one another amicably, as they had there for hundreds of years. The activities of the murderous Stern Gang and Irgun changed all of that. The hatred they had known in Europe was unknown in Palestine. Additionally, there were Jewish communities in Damascus, Cairo, Alexandria and Baghdad, where they prospered, until Israel’s behaviour made it too uncomfortable to remain. The Israelis have done their co-religionists living in the surrounding countries no favours.

    Much is made of Israel being a democracy. Unfortunately,their adoption of PR means that the most extremist elements often hold the balance of power.

    They have brought the hatred of their neighbours upon themselves.
