Knesset Speaker MK Yuli Edelstein wrote a letter of protest Sunday to his British counterpart, MP John Bercow, after a hidden camera video showed a British MP making an offensive anti-Semitic remark regarding a female IDF soldier he encountered on a visit to Israel. The MP resigned last week.
"I was shocked to hear about the crude antisemitic words used by a Member of Parliament, Patrick Mercer, regarding an event during his recent trip to Israel, wrote Edelstein. This was a totally unacceptable comment, certainly as made by a public figure.
"This comment is merely one of a number of similarly unacceptable comments made by Members of the British Parliament regarding Jews and regarding Israel, comments that include sick, perverted and racist positions regarding the State of Israel, he added.

I don’t the Brits need to worry much - soon the entire government will be talking anti-semetic, and anti-Christian.
Gun stuck up his nose by an 18 year old female IDF guard guarding a high security establishment? My guess is Mr. Mercer ignored a command to stop. Even if it was uttered in Hebrew the tone of voice should have been a clue. And it certainly beats being hit by a car and then dismembered.
“Bloody Jew” ping. Thanks Nachum.
There will always be an (anti-Semitic) England.
If the British had not been anti-Semitic during the 1930s, they would have been sufficiently alarmed and disgusted by Hitler’s treatment of Germany’s Jews to recognize Hitler’s evil, early enough to arm themselves and prevent World War II.
Today, the heirs to Hitler’s murderous anti-Semitism are Middle Eastern Muslims including many Israel-hating radicals, whom Britain has been opening its arms to for decades.
Britain might have survived the Blitz, but can it survive the continuing immigration of Muslim terrorist bombers and bloody murderers beheading people in the streets, not to mention overwhelming British social services to the point of causing economic hardship for the country?
Hating Jews and embracing their enemies is not good public policy, but can the British help themselves?
‘There will always be an (anti-Semitic) England.

Utter nonsense. The British people, then as now, rejected Oswald Mosley and his British Fascists and their naked anti-semitic. 1930’s UK antisemitism was confined to the upper classes (’the Cliveden Set’). And it was the British who took in tens of thousands of Jewish refugees from Hitler’s Germany.
And Americans would do well to remember that there was more public antisemitism there than in the UK: the American Nazi Party filling huge halls, Father Coughlin being listened to by millions.
