Brit stars attack Israel under false pretenses

Oh, okay. The British entertainment industry are speaking out against Israel. It's all Israel's fault that civilians are being killed, is that it?

Singer Annie Lennox and former model Bianca Jagger joined human rights campaigners to call on American president elect Barack Obama to speak up against the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

Former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone and the comedian Alexei Sayle also added their support to the campaign to end the violence.

I guess they weren't paying attention when Hamas was killing Israeli civilians. Aside from the obvious hue and cry that they raise and their attempt to sway public opinion towards compassion and humanity and blah, blah, blah, what's the common background of these concerned stars?

British comedian Alexei Sayle is apparently Jewish and ashamed of Israel. I didn't realize he was Jewish, but I was aware of the fact that he was an avowed socialist. Apparently Annie Lennox has some socialism in her family background, and although she claims to avoid party affiliation, she does work with Amnesty International and Greenpeace. Bianca Jagger was a big supporter of Daniel Ortega, the former Nicaraguan dictator and socialist. And Ken Livingstone, former London mayor, is definitely a socialist.

There seems to be a bit of a common thread. It's all a little clearer. Anti-Americanism, anti-Israeli, but for reasons other than what is professed in public. In 2006 Arabs and communists rallied at the U.N. with chants of death to Israel. Nice. It's a common enemy thing. Just thought I should bring these facts to the table when the conversations come up.
