    Towards those who've called you so, yeah.
    Do you want to give fuller details of what they said and whether they were asked to mind their language as one member of our Parliament was yesterday when speaking about Israel but being far less rude?
    They are members of the Parliament, not the government.
    It should also be noted that their party's support from the public is way smaller than that of the BNP.

    They were pushed into this, they had to state that they see this as a severe situation, since the public has demanded that.
    The point I am making is that they clearly have information that it is your officials who are stealing people's identity. How you can go from that to imagining that the UK government does not care about UK sovereignty is beyond me.

    They have supplied Israel with no such incriminating evidence.

    and you still have not dealt with the fact that you have done this before and given before your assurance this will never happen.

    You seem to have no respect for International Protocol that you are so surprised that a country is angry at this and with respect to the UK you very definitely know we do take take this sort of action lightly.

    Miliband said that he had handed his counterpart, Avigdor Lieberman, a letter seeking assurances that Israel would never again "misuse" British passports. Israel gave similar assurances following an incident in 1986.

    There are many possible reasons for this, including burning possible confidential sources. I can think of a lot of reasons why the British government might not want to provide the direct evidence to Israel, given the current situation.

    Re: UK expels Israeli Diplomat

    Here's your evidence:

    British law enforcement interviewed the victims of identity theft, and found that there were common elements in their stories:

    British sources said there was evidence that the 12 British victims of stolen identity had had their passports temporarily taken away either by Israeli immigration officers or other officials. Clones of those passports were subsequently used by some of the large team sent to kill Mabhouh.

    "They found no link to any other country," Miliband said. Without mentioning the Mossad by name, he added that "the government judges it is highly likely that the forgeries were made by a state intelligence service".

    He said British investigators had interviewed all the passport holders affected, who hold dual British-Israeli citizenship, and "found no evidence to suggest any of those individuals were anything other than innocent victims of identify theft".
    I see no reason, based upon this story, to believe Apoca's allegations that this was a politically motivated act. It looks clear that Israeli officials overstepped the bounds of propriety when handling British citizen's identification.

    Is Netanyahu's brother also a member of this fringe party? He called Obama an anti-semite last week.

    He is not even a politician, and this is off-topic.

    Asked for the third time, since Catz continues to dodge this.
