Hague condemns 'settlement building'

British Foreign Secretary Hague has condemned Israel's decision to build some 900 housing units in the Jerusalem suburb of Gilo, calling that decision and earlier decisions to build in five Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria 'illegal under international law.'
I condemn Israel’s decision to approve more than 900 settlement units in the East Jerusalem suburb of Gilo and the retrospective approval which has been given for construction in five West Bank settlements. This is not disputed territory. It is occupied Palestinian territory and ongoing settlement expansion is illegal under international law, an obstacle to peace and a threat to a two state solution. We call on the Israeli authorities to reconsider this decision, which undermines the prospects for peace. All those who support a secure future for Israel and a future Palestinian state should be working urgently to restart peace negotiations, not taking steps which make this more difficult.
Now condemn sounds like an awfully strong word. I decided to run a Google search and see what else Mr. Hague has condemned recently. Here's what I found (in reverse chronological order).

April 2, 2011 - Hague condemns mob killings at UN compound in Afghanistan.

March 24, 2011 - Hague condemns bus bombing in Jerusalem.

February 19, 2011 - Hague condemns violence in Libya (in more than 100 were killed).

November 23, 2010 - Hague says UK condemns unprovoked North Korean attack on South Korea.

October 6, 2010 - Hague condemns a rocket attack on a car carrying the Deputy British Ambassador to Yemen.

Do you notice a pattern here? In only one instance does Hague condemn (or say that the UK condemns) something that doesn't constitute a murder or an attempt to murder someone: Israeli construction of housing units. Hague equates Israeli construction of housing units to murder.

The guy seriously needs his head examined.

Yeah, but V.P. Biden also condemned the new construction, too. Are you "seriously" suggesting that V.P. Biden "seriously needs his head examined", too? If so, then you or someone else must first find V.P. Biden's head. Good luck with that.

this should be every Jews retort to British anti-semitism:

Yes, I am a Jew, and when the ancestors of the right honorable gentleman were brutal savages in an unknown island, mine were priests in the temple of Solomon

The repulsive dhimmi Hague was discovered, recently, to have spent a night with his male researcher while at a conference.(He is married) No one pays him any attention or treats him seriously. He is a busted flush, a mouthpiece.
