As David Cameron reveals Jewish ancestry he pledges 'unbreakable' support for Israel...
David Cameron has pledged his "unbreakable" support for Israel and condemned Iran for its "despicable" attempts to smuggle missiles to terrorists.
On Mr Cameron's first visit as Prime Minister to the country, he revealed he has Jewish ancestry and pledged to his "rock solid" support to the Israeli people.
BOYCOTT ISRAEL GETS ANOTHER BLOW AS MORE AND MORE TURN THEIR SUPPORT TOWARDS ISRAEL.
David Cameron vowed to keep hate preachers and anti-semites out of Britain, citing the refusal to grant entry to Britain to Dieudonne, the French comedian known for his "abhorent" inverted Nazi salute which was copied by the West Bromwich footballer Nicolas Anelka.
In comments that will delight Prime Minister Netenyahu, Mr Cameron condemned the British boycott movement, including trade unionists and academics, of being "amateur politicians".
AND THE BEST NEWS OF ALL....
Crucially, he also declared Israel to be the Jews' historic "homeland" – a status the Israelis have insisted the Palestinians recognise before any Palestinian state can be granted, but one the Foreign Office has shied away from.
We love David Cameron and thank the almighty he was reelected.
SPAIN JOINS OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AND AMERICA AND CANADA IN THEIR SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL
"You can count on us in the Security Council and the European Union,” Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo told President Reuven Rivlin when he called on him on Wednesday.
Garcia-Margallo is on a tour of the Middle East to strengthen Spain’s relations with countries in the region and to discuss the latest United Nations resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He was in Gaza the previous day and is the third foreign minister of an EU member country to visit Gaza since Operation Protective Edge. He has previously visited Jerusalem at least 20 times.
In addition to meeting with Rivlin, Garcia-Margallo met separately with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman.
Rivlin told his guest that Israel is “not only ready but anxious for the Palestinians to rebuild Gaza,” but is worried that this may be hampered by the conflicts that the Palestinians have among themselves.
Israel is also concerned, he said, that building supplies that are sent to Gaza from Israel will be used by Hamas build more tunnels to be used against Israel.
Rivlin lamented that some 30,000 Hamas members control more than a million citizens of Gaza.
