THE FOR­EIGN Sec­re­tary, David Miliband, is­sued an un­usu­ally worded mes­sage for the High Holy-Days this week in which he ap­peared to iden­tify closely with the Jewish peo­ple as “us”.

Mr Miliband be­gan: “Th­ese days be­tween Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kip­pur are the most sa­cred in the Jewish cal­en­dar.”

And he con­cluded: “It is right that at the dawn of the New Year, we also re-ded­i­cate our­selves to the search for se­cu­rity and peace in the Mid­dle East. All will share my hope that this year is the one that brings close the peace and se­cu­rity its peo­ples de­serve.

“To the peo­ple of Is­rael, the Jewish com­mu­nity of Bri­tain, and all the Jewish peo­ple, I wish us all [ sic] Shana Tova U’Me­tuka.”
