David Ward Uses Holocaust Memorial Day To Bash Israel. Again

You may recall that two years ago, David Ward MP of the Liberal Democrats said the following to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day:

‘Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.’

Today, he continued his fine tradition of marginalizing the Holocaust by again using the occasion to bash Israel.

David Ward MP helps mark Holocaust Memorial Day in Bradford

January 27, 2015 7:11 PM

Bradford MP, David Ward, marked today’s Holocaust Memorial Day, by attending a service of remembrance at Bradford’s City Hall.

Tuesday 27th January marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.

The service in Bradford was a very inclusive event involving members of all faith groups with community representatives from the Gypsy Roma and LGBT communities.

Seventy candles will be lit across the UK to mark the occasion and this year’s theme is “Keep the memory alive”.

Commenting David Ward MP said:

“On Holocaust Memorial Day it’s imperative that we share the memory of the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Palestine, Bosnia and Darfur in order to challenge hatred and persecution wherever it resides today.

“The commemoration provides an opportunity for everyone to pause and take a moment to really think about lessons from the Holocaust, and subsequent genocides in order to ensure, where possible that such atrocities cannot happen again and help create a safer, better future for us all.

“Having twice visited Auschwitz, once with the family and once with a group of Bradford school children, the inhumanity of what occurred there is just immeasurable. This is why Holocaust Memorial Day is an important focal point in the year, it’s vital that we remember and reflect upon the horrors of the past, and honour those who survived.”

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Ward is deliberately taunting Jews.
