Conservative MP Michael Fabricant Blasts “Breathtaking Ignorance” of “Childish” Palestine Action Group
Michael Fabricant, the Conservative MP for Lichfield, has blasted Israel haters of Palestinian Action Group, who picketed a drone factory claiming they make drones for the IDF.
Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant has criticised protesters who targeted a drone factory in Shenstone yesterday.
The Palestinian Action Group picketed UAV Engines claiming they make drone engines for the Israeli Army.
However, Mr Fabricant claimed protesters have got their facts wrong.
He said: “The ignorance of the so called Palestine Action group who have once again intimidated local workers at the UAV Engines site at Shenstone is breathtaking.
“They claim to have ‘taken aim’ at Elbit’s Shenstone factory, because ‘UAV Engines Ltd manufacture engines for Israeli drones.’ They do not! The Israeli company have their own factories in Israel which manufacture engines for the Israel Air Force and Army.”
He added: “The Shenstone factory provide equipment for the British Armed Forces for the defence of our islands and for the operation of British forces overseas. The childish actions of the Palestine Action Group endangers the lives of British servicemen and is a nuisance to local people in the area.”
Mr Fabricant added: “Both Chris Pincher, who represents Shenstone, and I have been in contact with the local police commander in Lichfield saying they should take tough measures against this small group of demonstrators to deter them from future action. I am not convinced the police action is as robust as I would like.”
Mr Fabricant is a staunch supporter of Israel who has taken aim at these nincompoops before.
And nincompoops they are.
