Too many Jews???

Oh my God and one member of the UK panel is.....a Zionist!
A British diplomat has criticized the appointment of two leading Jewish academics to the UK's Iraq Inquiry panel, stating it may upset the balance of the inquiry.

Sir Oliver Miles, a former British ambassador to Libya, told The Independent newspaper this week that the appointment of Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned Holocaust historian and Winston Churchill biographer, and Sir Lawrence Freedman, professor of war studies and vice-principal of King's College London, would be seen as "ammunition" that could be used to call the inquiry a "whitewash."

Miles said the two academics were Jewish and that Gilbert was an active Zionist. He also said they were both strong supporters of former prime minister Tony Blair and the Iraq war.

"Such facts are not usually mentioned in the mainstream British and American media, but the Jewish Chronicle and the Israeli media have no such inhibitions, and the Arabic media both in London and in the region are usually not far behind," he told the newspaper.

"It is a pity that, if and when the inquiry is accused of a whitewash, such handy ammunition will be available," he added. "Membership should not only be balanced; it should be seen to be balanced."

That's crazy, it's like saying no Jew can be fair or balanced because he's a Jew! What's the connection? It seems like Sir Oliver Miles doesn't want a BRITISH Jew doing an inquiry into Iraq because the Jew haters in the Arab media will be able to blame Jews if Tony Blair isn't sent to prison!

We shouldn't be pandering to the hate mongers who hate Jews at every corner for god's sake!

Britain is a SHAMBLES.
