Now we now the cause of world unrest...

Claire Short, a former Minister in the Blair government reveals the cause of world unrest.
Britain's former International Development Secretary Clare Shirt has blamed American support for Israel as being responsible for global conflict.

"US backing for Israeli policies of expansion of the Israeli state and oppression of the Palestinian people is the major cause of bitter division and violence in the world," Short said.

The former minister, who resigned from her cabinet post in protest over the Iraq war, was issuing a statement in support of next week's World Premier of a musical tribute to American peace activist Rachel Corrie, who was killed by the Israelis in March.

"There has been the usual campaign to silence even a cantata to commemorate a young woman who gave her life in order to stand for justice," Short said about Corrie, who was killed when attempting to stop an Israeli bulldozer destroying a Palestinian house in Gaza.
My God, how on earth did she become a cabinet member?
