Suspended for telling the truth!

S.H.Moulana - Riyadh

British MP, David Ward was suspended from his party Liberal Democrat for comparing Jewish treatment of Palestinians to Nazis.

Ward a British lawmaker earlier referred to Israel to an apartheid state. Following a meeting with the party leader Nick Clegg, prime-minister Cameron’s deputy in the coalition government, Ward was suspended until September 13, according to reports.

The suspended MP wanted to know; ‘Am I right or wrong?’ ‘He said at long last Zionists are losing the battle – how long can the apartheid State of Israel last?’

However, the president of the president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, in Britain, is not happy saying that the suspension is a short one and a token and frankly an empty gesture.

Is it a taboo for any politician from that part of the world to speak the truth and especially when that is related to the Zionist state?

We need all the right thinking people, especially the Arabs, to support people like David Ward and George Galloway, who also was suspended from the Labour Party for opposing the British participation in the US’s Iraqi war.

He is a strong supporter of the oppressed Palestinians, and always stood by them for their just cause, defying all obstacles. Galloway once said; ‘I think that both men, Bush and Blair, will be damned in history. Both men have made their respective countries the two most hated countries in the world.’

It is time for Arabs to identify their true friends and ‘so called’ friends!
