Jenny Tonge invites Kay Wilson to the House of Lords for a cup of tea (UPDATE)


Yesterday was one of the more sickening scenes at the House of Lords:

When Sussex Friends of Israel posted this on Facebook, they wrote:
WATCH-Member of audience at last nights event in Parliament (hosted by Jenny Tonge) which called for Britain to apologize for the Balfour Declaration, says that ‘if anyone is anti-Semitic it is the Israelis themselves!’ Greeted with much applause by Tonge and her fellow panelists and all done in the House of Lords!

There was then this exchange between the great Kay Wilson and Jenny Tonge among others

Kay Wilson Jenny Tonge Jenny Tonge, Baroness Tonge is a revolting woman, unworthy of the position with which she has been entrusted.

Geoffrey Bernstein Jenny Tonge Tonge, what a smug, self-satisfied and sarcastic reply. Kay Wilson was almost murdered by Palestinians, and her companion was murdered at the same time. They were simply walking in the countryside. Check it out for yourself.

Kay Wilson
Kay Wilson I am actually. Despite being hacked at with a machete 13 times by Palestinian terrorists and watching my Christian friend murdered in front of my eyes, I have gone on to do all I can for peace. I have hidden a Muslim teenager in my house at the risk oSee More

Kay Wilson This is on record. Jenny Tonge has extended an invite to the House of Lords. As a survivor a Palestinian terrorism, I feel that “dialogue” could be important. I eagerly await confirmation of her invite

Sussex Friends Of Israel Love to come Jenny but first I would ask you to to categorically distance yourself from the ‘if anyone is anti-Semitic it is the Israelis themselves’ comment as in the video above

Jonathan Hoffman Jenny Tonge Do you still defend your suggestion that Israel should set up an inquiry to disprove allegations that its medical teams in Haiti “harvested” organs of earthquake victims for use in transplants?

David Collier Jenny Tonge My problem, as someone who was there last night, is why you seem to fail to recognise antisemitism even when it smacks the Jews across the face in front of you. If you don’t see it, I mean really don’t see it, isn’t it just possible that the problem is with you, rather than me?

Tonge also defended her call for an independent inquiry into whether Israel was stealing organs from earthquake victims in Haiti:

Jenny Tonge My exact words were via our press office and were
‘I congratulate the IDF on their swift response after the earthquake. If they are concerned about these allegations they should have an independent inquiry .’ What is wrong with that? I was.a doctor for many years in the NHS.

The idea that Kay can break through the hate that Jenny Tonge has is more than fanciful. But it is amazing that she keeps trying.

UPDATE: When I wrote this article, it was before this happened:

Jenny Tonge, a former Liberal Democat peer, has quit the party after she was suspended over alleged antisemitic comments.
She said she had resigned from the party “about the same time” as she was suspended as a party member by its leader on Thursday.
Earlier, a spokesman for the Liberal Democrats said: “She has been suspended. She was not a member of our group in the House of Lords; she was an independent peer, she has had her membership suspended.
“We take her comments very seriously and have acted accordingly.”
Tonge was Lib Dem MP for Richmond Park from 1997 to 2005, but has sat as an independent in the Lords since she was suspended in 2012, also for allegedly antisemitic comments.
Thursday’s move came after Tonge hosted a meeting at the House of Lords this week at which Israel was reportedly compared to terror group Islamic State and Jews were blamed for the Holocaust. The remarks were made by a speaker at the meeting, which was organised by the Palestinian Return Centre, which live-streamed the event on its Facebook page.
The Israeli embassy in London said the meeting was a “shameful event which gave voice to racist tropes against Jews and Israelis alike”.

Not sure that this tea party will ever occur.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
