British Prime Minister David Cameron has said that the UK will remain a “staunch friend” of the Israeli regime, publicly announcing his commitment to Israel’s interests, this time at the London Olympics.
After the International Olympic Committee refused to politicize the Olympic Games by including a moment of silence in the London Olympic opening ceremony for the Israelis killed at the 1972 Munich Olympics, Cameron, his cabinet ministers, and Israeli embassy officials in London attended a memorial service at London’s Guildhall.
At the ceremony, Cameron once again announced his commitment to the Israeli regime’s interests saying “Britain will always be a staunch friend of Israel”.
When Cameron became the leader of the Conservative Party, he declared: “You need to know that if I become prime minister, Israel has a friend who will never turn his back on Israel”.
Furthermore, when he became Britain's Prime Minister, Cameron proclaimed: “In me, you have a prime minister whose belief in Israel is indestructible... I want to be clear, we will always support Israel...”
Cameron’s latest remarks during the London Olympics are another example of politicizing the Olympic Games while the British capital is supposed to be hosting an international peaceful event and build a “better world through sport and the Olympic ideal”.
