Protests? Protests?

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT & ANALYSIS -

Our Prime Min­is­ter has shown him­self to be a true and trusted friend of Is­rael. So it is all the more bizarre that the Mid­dle East Min­is­ter, To­bias Ellwood, should have made such a crass and stupid state­ment about the vi­o­lence in Is­rael, at­tack­ing “the use of force by Is­raeli se­cu­rity per­son­nel in re­sponse to protests and se­cu­rity in­ci­dents” Protests? How can stab­bings and other vi­o­lent at­tacks, which kill in­no­cent Is­raelis, be clas­si­fied by the min­is­ter as “protests”? This is also the first time that a min­is­ter of the crown has pub­licly crit­i­cised Is­raeli op­er­a­tional counter-terror mea­sures. Mr Ellwood needs to get a grip — or he will have earned the en­mity not just of Is­rael but of ev­ery­one who sup­ports free­dom over terror.
