Israel hating British MPs demand we show kindness to Iran while Iran demands destruction of Israel
Former UK Foreign Minister Jack Straw recently claimed that "Unlimited Jewish funds control US policy, and block Mideast peace". His fellow MP Jeremy Corbyn, has long demanded the destruction of the Jewish State and is always proud to speak alongside terrorists who vow to make that happen (see more on him here and here). Conservative MP and former Finance Minister Norman Lamont is a long-term friend and apologist for the Iranian regime. So it is fitting that these three MPs formed the first British Parliamentary delegation sent to Iran since diplomatic ties were restored. How surprising then that, on his return from Iran, Straw called for the world powers "not to push the Iranians too hard".
At exactly the same time this British parliamentary love-in was taking place in Iran the Iranians were hosting a memorial service for Hezbollah commander Hassan Lakkis, recently assassinated in Beirut. As this report on the service from Elder of Ziyon shows the Iranians are now making it absolutely clear to anybody who is prepared to listen that they intend to provide their proxy army Hezbollah with the weapons to destroy Israel. Of course Straw and the rest of the Western politicians will not be prepared to listen. Or, judging by Straw's comments and his choice or delegates, maybe this is exactly what he he really wants to hear.
More on the delegation to Iran here. And it seems not all Iranians are happy with the visit either.
