UK pro-Palestinians and PA shoot themselves in the foot (again)

Another Christmas story developing just now. This time it's British pro-Palestinians (joined by the Palestinian Authority) making themselves look a little bit silly, even managing to alienate the very choir leader who actually champions their political stance. To the outsider I suggest it all looks, frankly, like it is nothing at all to do with truth or justice but rather ideology, even anti-Israeli prejudice. If the story has been reported accurately it would appear the group's leader quoted in the report is woefully ill-equipped when it comes to PR issues (or else possibly employed by the Israelis with the express task of making her group look like bumbling clowns! If so she'll be getting a bonus this week ;) Anyway, read the story here.
