Jewish group slams British MP's Holocaust remark
Already Hamas has continued to fire mortors and rockets into Israel in spite of the recent unilateral ceasefire.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemned British Parliamentarian Gerald Kaufman last week for telling his fellow lawmakers in the House of Commons that Israel is exploiting the guilt that non-Jews feel about the Holocaust in order to justify defensive operations in Gaza.

Jewish lawmaker says gentiles' guilt providing Israeli government with excuse to murder Palestinians Full story
"The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt from Gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians," Kaufman, a governing Labour Party legislator, said Thursday during a House of Commons debate on Gaza.
“Mr. Kaufman manages in one disgraceful screed to insult all victims of the Nazi Holocaust and the people of Israel, whose are guilty of finally protecting themselves from a terrorist group whose self-proclaimed goal is to fulfill Hitler's vision of a 'Judenrein' Holy Land,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Wiesenthal Center.
