UK MP David Ward Calls for Arab ‘Right of Return’ to be Included in Holocaust Memorial Day (VIDEO)
British MP David Ward, known for his continued slurs against Israel, which in the past led to a suspension from the Liberal Democrats Party, was at it again on Wednesday, according to the Trending Central blog.
“So little wonder that today, Ward took a stand once again, in great offence to the memory of those millions killed during the Holocaust, to somehow juxtapose the political point of the Palestinian right of return, with Holocaust Memorial Day, officially observed in Britain on Monday 27th January this year,” Trending Central wrote.
Ward said, “On Monday, many of us will be attending Holocaust Memorial Day events where the theme will be journeys, including journeys of return. Does the Secretary of State agree with me that our thoughts should include, amongst many others, the millions of displaced Palestinians, still denied their right, to return to their homes.”
Trending Central said it was ” interesting to note that even during the United Nation’s year for Palestinian Solidarity, people like David Ward cannot even afford the Holocaust, the worst genocide in recent history, one single, solitary day of mourning without trying to hijack it for political purposes. And moreover, where was Ward’s reference to the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians either killed or displaced in the Syria conflict? Not a peep.”
