UK minister SUPPORTS Israel (shock, horror)

Get this from JPost:

Israel’s response to the recent Kassam rocket attacks on Sderot has been measured and appropriate, Kim Howells, Britain’s Minister of State for the Middle East, told The Jerusalem Post, disregarding Palestinian appeals for the world to rein in the IDF.

Howells, on a three-day visit to the region, hinted in an interview Wednesday night that financial aid to the Palestinian Authority might be withheld if the PA did not seriously begin tackling the terrorism in its midst.

“The Palestinians are receiving more aid per capita than any other people on the face of the earth, and we want to see some proper response,” Howells said, hinting at a decrease of economic aid if the Palestinians don’t fight terror.

Wow, I haven't heard this anywhere else. But then, my TV at campus only has the Beeb. Still, this makes so much sense than you can expect the moaning to start shortly. Hopefully Kim Howells can keep her job.
