Red Ken says "I would not have created an Israel"

Reader comment on item: My Debate with London Mayor Ken Livingstone

Submitted by Allan Levine (United Kingdom), Jan 25, 2007 at 08:37

According to Carol Gould, who was an observer at the debate, this is what Livingstone said. http://www.currentviewpoint.com/cgibin/news.cgi?id=11&command=shownews&newsid=910

Although he feels moral enough to comment on racist remarks made by Jade Goody on Big Brother (one of equal [lack of] intelligence), and the BBC were not slow to run his chastising on the same day as the debate. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/6282005.stm

No word though on the debate in the MSM. I called the Evening Standard editor, who one would think, after Ken had likened one of their Jewish reporters to a concentration camp guard, would have jumped at the opportunity to show Ken up for what he really is, but the editor's reply was that he didn't think "it was of public interest".

The mayor of London expresses his opinion at a public debate that Israel should not have been created, and it's not of public interest. He expresses his opinion on an ignorant young woman renowned for her stupidity, and this is.
