Cameron’s Government Almost Gets It Right – Updated

For once the UK, in the shape of Prime Minister David Cameron, issued a good statement with a zero “calls for restraint” count. It was dutifully shared by the UK’s embassy in Israel.

Unfortunately, their duplicitous Arab speaking counterpart in Jerusalem shared the statement by The Council of the European Union which was written two days ago and doesn’t even mention the triple murders! (with one call for “maximum restraint”)

Perfidious Albion strikes again.

Prime Minister David Cameron’s statement:

“I am deeply saddened by the news that the bodies of the three Israeli boys kidnapped on 12 June have been found this evening.

“This was an appalling and inexcusable act of terror perpetrated against young teenagers. Britain will stand with Israel as it seeks to bring to justice those responsible.

“Tonight my thoughts and prayers are with the families of Gilad, Naftali and Eyal. No parent should have ever to suffer such heartache or grief.”

Update 22:14: Almost a day after he made the statement in English, and a few hours after my post, the UK in Jerusalem has posted the statement of Cameron in Arabic. And the fans have gone wild: this is not popular with their crowd, most of whom are bleating on about Palestinian children accidentally harmed during Israeli security operations.

    No mention Hamas is a terrorist group and no vows of sanctions against the PA for officially embracing it.

    But from the EU’s perspective, Israel’s outrage over the brutal murder of its children must be snuffed out to pretend peace still has a chance.

    I have had enough.

      The British Government’s level of support for Israel is inversely proportional to the size of a certain rapidly-growing religious community within the same country. Politics.

    The EU statement was dated two days before the bodies were found. So far, there has been no further pronouncements. If the EU honchos can’t bring themselves to say something comparable to Cameron’s statement, they should be excluded from any and all diplomacy involving Israel.
