    I have seen the picture in question (it is in the link) and wonder what is the fuss about.
    I think the Councillor made a valid and measured criticism of Israeli policy.

    It is disgraceful that any British elected official should be brow beaten and forced to step down for not being a pro Israeli sycophant.

    I will go further, if to criticise the image is to be anti semitic, the only logical conclusion to reach is that this image is considered as a respectable image of semitisem. If that is the case I would hope all decent and civilised people will identify as antisemitic as I see nothing to be pro about it.

    I also think that those in Parliament who declare themselves Friends of Israel, should stand down, as the conflict of interest is clearly prejudicing the interests of the British electors, that voted them into office.
