UK Governed by Moonbats
The British Parliament is now in the hands of the worst kind of terror-appeasing moonbats: Boycott of Hamas is counterproductive: British MPs.
We’re about to witness what happens when a country is governed by the “progressive” Kos mentality. And it’s going to be ugly.
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s and the international community’s refusal to speak to the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas is doing more harm than good, a British parliamentary committee said on Monday.
Pursuing a “West Bank first” policy — where Britain and others deal with the West Bank, which is run by the more secular Fatah group, and isolate the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip — will further jeopardize peace, the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee said in a report on the Middle East.
“The government should urgently consider ways of engaging politically with moderate elements within Hamas,” the all-party group of lawmakers said.
It said former prime minister Tony Blair should personally engage with Hamas to help reconciliation in his new role as envoy for the Quartet of Middle East mediators — the United States, the European Union, the United Nations and Russia.
The committee also criticized Britain’s response to last year’s war between Israel and Lebanon’s Islamist Hezbollah movement. It said Blair’s refusal as prime minister to call for an immediate ceasefire had done “significant damage to the UK’s reputation.”
