Israel - Yoel Hasson of Tzipi Livni’s “Hatnua” party blasted Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday for comparing European diplomacy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the Holocaust.

“Liberman’s scandalous comparison of the Holocaust to Europe’s diplomatic relationship with Israel today is a dangerous political step,” Hasson said, adding that it would endanger one of Israel’s best and most important relationships.

The Israeli public, he continued should know that “Israel’s friends in Europe have not lost faith in the state of Israel, but in the government of Israel.”

In an interview with Israel Radio earlier in the day, Liberman said, “I’m not pleased with Europe’s position that again, again in history, ignores calls to annihilate the nation of Israel.” Hamas, he said, missed no opportunity to clearly state their objective of annihilating the state of Israel, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, he insisted, supported that position.

“We already went through this Europe at the end of the 30s, in the 40s. They are sacrificing all their values in favor of their interests. Even then, in the 40s they knew what was going on with the concentration camps, to the Jews, and they didn’t exactly act,” Liberman said.

Avigdor Liberman says many things that are either facts or common sense. But it's not what he says, it's who says it. Avigdor Liberman is right wing and a "hardliner" (and the fact that he is Russian doesn't help). In other words, a lightning rod for sniveling leftists like Yoel Hasson or Tzipi Livni. (You think they are any better than our own Democretes? Maybe, but not much.) And there is an election going on there, in which the snivelers have not a slightest chance, but they desperately need to attract attention. ANY attention.

He is right and those that say that we should not always cry wolf; well those that hate us always will, no matter what we do or say.
