Lib Dems Question Israel's Right to Exist

I mentioned before that at the Liberal Democrat Conference it was suggested to stop all arms exports to Israel because they “pose risks to regional stability".

Today Sir Menzies Campbell gave his keynote speech. In it he says the following:

"As long as this [Israel's "humiliation" of Palestinians] continues, Israel's legal and moral right to live in peace behind secure and recognized borders will be undermined."

So, not only have the Lib Dems proposed to strangle Israel's ability to defend herself, they are also calling into question whether it has the right to exist. Is this the kind of party we want in Britain?
