Why I'm Not Surprised by Baroness Ashton's Sick Comparison of the Toulouse Murders to "What is Happening in Gaza"

Baroness Ashton’s sick comparison of the racially motivated murders at a Jewish school in Toulouse to “what is happening in Gaza" should not be met with too much surprise. Sadly, her comments are a reflection of the deep-rooted, institutional hatred of Israel that subsists in the EU.

Just yesterday, Press Officer for Friends of Israel in UKIP, Jacob Campbell wrote for The Commentator to expose a new EU Report which belittles the fate of victims of Palestinian atrocities last year, including the Fogel Family.

Perhaps blinded by the need to appeal to the growing Muslim population of Europe, or the chance to get more favourable oil contracts from other Middle Eastern countries, the EU is incapable of playing a fair and neutral role in the Middle East. 

Any political party aiming to seriously represent British values would recognise that Britain does not want to be represented in these matters by the likes of Baroness Ashton. A British PM of real integrity would at the very least stand with Israel and call on Baroness Ashton to resign.
But David Cameron long ago abandoned any real support for the State of Israel and her security interests.  He refers to Gaza as a prison camp and critises Israel for the actions taken by the Israeli Defence Forces during the Flotilla Raid.

By contrast, in light of Baroness Ashton’s remarks, Nigel Farage MEP appears prophetic in having told the Jewish chronicle back in 2009, “There is within the European institutions a very strong anti-Israel bias…I would almost say — and I am bit nervous of saying this — there’s almost a new trendy form of antisemitism creeping in…”

Friends of Israel in UKIP will continue to fight to expose the severe threat to the State of Israel, and consequently Western interests, posed by the European Union.
