And as usual the clerical incumbent of Virginia Water in Surrey has undermining the Zionist Entity very much on his mind.
I understand from my bemused informant that, among the numerous Israel-bashing messages and links that the reverend gentleman posts on social media is this exhortation today to his followers:
"Please sign the petition: Britain should make amends to the Palestinian people now."That petition is none other than this dodgy online screed:
As Britain prepared to leave Palestine in 1948, its army stood by while Zionist forces terrorised hundreds of thousands of Palestinians into fleeing their homeland. In that way Palestine was transformed into Israel.
More than half of all Palestinians are still refugees today, most in dire straits. Israel denies them their right of return to their ancestral homes in what had been Palestine, and from the day of their flight has prevented them by force from returning.
Britain should make amends to the Palestinian people now."
