    I think she said “Israel is not going to be there forever, in it’s present form. The BBC and all other pro zionist media are not giving the complete phrase. I am sure many would agree with Baroness Tonge that The State of Israel is on the path to self destruction.

      the words “israel and going” do appear in her statement. I can only conclude this is artistic license

    Robert Halfon MP – leading light of Conservative Friends of Israel gets onto radio4 and unsurprisingly supports the apartheid state.

    His quip about the extremist pro palestine lobby group was laughable, coming from the cross party friends of Israel group who applaud the murder of Palestinian civilians daily.

    On a sidenote, BICOM head Fitzsimmons was sacked yesterday. Though the JC are spinning it as a leaving by mutual consent.
