E-mails and research papers uncovered by The Commentator in the UK, reveal that personnel inside the Foreign and Commonwealth Office – which is equivalent to the U.S. State Department – believe Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu uses Palestinian incitement as a reason to postpone peace talks.

“Netanyahu has a history of using the incitement issue as a delaying tactic in peace talks,” reads part of a paper entitled Research Paper FINAL.

“The history of this issue suggests that Netanyahu administrations have a tendency to charge the PA/PLO with incitement as a delaying tactic in peace talks,” reads part of the research.

These statements were supposed to be redacted by the British government, however employees responding to freedom of information requests disseminated the content in question.

“The views of a junior official should not be conflated with the clear positions that the Foreign Secretary has set out repeatedly in Parliament,” a British government official told The Commentator.

However, Phillip Hollobone, a Member of Parliament in Britain, raised concern over a growing trend inside the country’s government to overlook the issue of Palestinian incitement through educational textbooks and other means.

“There is a growing body of well documented evidence that official Palestinian organisations – some funded by the UK, the EU and the UN – are promoting terrorism and martyrdom in an attempt to aid the Palestinian cause, and yet the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and DfID appear surprisingly slow to explore this evidence and condemn its perpetrators,” he said.  “Now we know why.”

    That little man, has a real chip on his shoulder,

    Maybe he should read a bit of history, and see how the British Mandate government treated Jews. Also, how the British Mandate Government “handled” Arab trouble makers.
    How many Arab houses they destroyed.

    How they murdered Jews and hanged young Jews who had a weapon. But the Brits supplied the Arabs with weapons to kill Jews.

    Britain go to hell, but make sure that William Zaig and others lead the way

    The Brits arrested any Jew who blew the Shofar, rams horn at the Kotel (Western Wall) because the Arabs complained. But they allowed the Muslims to “call to prayer” at all hours, no matter that people complained that the call disturbed the peace.

    The British government are no better than the Nazis.Under Bevin and Attlee, they tried to stop Jews from entering the Promised land, as this “upset” the Muslims.
