David Ward MP, has criticised Israel on the day he has signed a Book of Commitment in the House of Commons.

In doing so he pledged his commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day and honouring those who died during the Holocaust and in subsequent genocides.

Sunday January 27th will mark the 68th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and extermination camp which is the site of the largest mass murder in history.

In the weeks running up to the day, the Holocaust Educational Trust placed a Book of Commitment in the House of Commons, giving MPs the chance to honour those who were persecuted and killed during the Holocaust and encouraging constituents to work together to combat prejudice and racism today.

The Bradford East MP said: “Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”

Omar Mukhtar the Libyan freedom fighter and his men captured Italian soldiers. When one of his men said, lets do what they did to us, & Omar Mukhtar said "NO, for they are not our teachers"....I wouldv thought the Jews would have learnt a lesson from the evil atrocities which were committed against them and not do the same to any other nation....But simply they took the Nazis as their teachers, very sad indeed....
