Jewish MP pelted with eggs at war memorial

Oona King, who probably does not own a vote factory, was pelted with eggs at war memorial:
"Ibn Alkhattab, 21, said: 'It will be all about the war. There is enormous anger. No one will vote for her.'

His friend added: 'She represented these people and then voted for the war. We all hate her. She comes here with her Jewish friends who are killing our people and then they come to our back yards.

'It is out of order. What do they expect?'"
She should have voted against the war if that was what would have best represented the wishes of her constiuents, that is what she is paid to do after all. But the anti-semitic blame-everything-on-Isreal attitude that this guy shows and is being picked up by dictator appologist George Galloway is pretty disheartening as well as utterly counter productive. Don't they realise that Isreal is the only real democracy in the Middle East? The only place where torture is not routine? The only place where equality and human rights are practiced (however imperfectly)? The occupation is a problem, but as far as the poor conditions endured within the Muslim states it is nothing. Instead of blaming everything on Isreal it would be better if they tried to emulate it. But of course they practice Sharia which being from the Koran must, by definition, be perfect so all the obvious imperfections have to be from some external entity.
