Change? British PM calls Gaza a 'prison camp'

Anyone who thought Britain's Conservative party was pro-Israel needs to think again. Or perhaps it's just Nick Clegg's or Catherine Ashton's influence.

British Prime Minister and Conservative party leader David Cameron was in Turkey on Tuesday where, among other things, he referred to Gaza (pictured) as a 'prison camp' and called Israel's raid on a Turkish flotilla trying to run Israel's legal blockade of Gaza 'completely unacceptable.'
Israel's May 31 interception of a Gaza-bound aid flotilla was "completely unacceptable," British Prime Minister David Cameron said Tuesday during an address to Turkish businessmen.

In a reference to Israel's blockade of the Strip, he said: "Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp."

He also commented that the world needs Turkey's help in pushing Iran to address international concerns about its suspected nuclear weapons program.

Cameron went on to declare that Britain was a staunch backer of Turkey's troubled bid to join the European Union. His visit early in his term was a measure of Britain's acknowledgment of Turkey as a critical ally in a conflict-prone region, much as US President Barack Obama traveled to Turkey, NATO's only Muslim member, in 2009 to boost a partnership despite differences on key issues.
And you thought it was just Gordon Brown and Labour....

The British Conservatives are not the heirs to Churchill.

They're good dhimmis - pun intended.

Just ask David Cameron!

What could go wrong indeed
