British MP Asks Liberal Democrat Leader to Condemn His Party’s Anti-Semitism (VIDEO)
In the wake of British Liberal Democrat MP David Ward’s recent infamous Holocaust Remembrance Day remarks, MP Robert Halfon asked Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and the leader of the LibDem party, during a parliament session Tuesday to condemn anti-Semitism in his party.
“Will my Honorable friend take action against those MPs who use the conflict in Israel to make inflammatory statements about Jews, and does he not realize that his party is getting a reputation, sadly, amongst some of its senior members for being hostile to Jewish people?” Halfon asked.
“I am unambiguous in my condemnation of anyone, from whatever party, including my own, who uses insensitive, intemperate, provocative and offensive language, to describe a long running conflict, about which people have very strong feelings on one side or the other, but where I think everybody is duty bound to choose their words carefully and tread carefully when entering into this very heated debate,” Clegg responded.
