Here, family and friends attend the funeral of 28-year old Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, after she was shot dead by a Palestinian terrorist at the Barkan Industrial Park. A 33-year-old man was also murdered by a cowardly man, who ran away.
But you wouldn't know it
Here's the pro-Israel, bias @BBCNews 's coverage of the incident on the front page of their Middle East section...

Had a chance to reflect on the whole waving of Palestinian flags thing, [and indeed the whole debate itself - chosen over other issues like Yemen..], and the only conclusion I have, is that Labour is verging on the obsessive, when it comes to Palestine. It's a fetish.
Palestine 188 000 votes.
Yemen 790 votes
I'm all for discussing Palestine. I do it all the time. But why does Labour insist on discussing ONLY Palestine?
Do people see why some 'Zionists' claim Labour have double standards re Israel and Labour's relentless inconsistent focus?

Disgraceful from @JVoiceLabour , taking picture of Jewish delegates at the conference and announcing they're absolutely fine.
Could you imagine if this had been any other group on another issue!? Their presence isn't proof of being content.. #Lab18
There is no such thing as a 'right' or 'wrong' kind of Jew. All Jewish voices should be heard.
This is however trying to pigeon-hole certain Jews without even letting them speak. Without even showing their faces!

A mini thread on Ken Livingstone, the reaction to him on Sky News, why he shouldn't be allowed to talk about anti-Semitism on behalf of Labour, and why he *really* keeps bringing up Hitler all the time.
1 A number of people have told me today that Ken Livingstone did not say that 'Hitler had supported Zionism'
Here is what he said: "When Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism.”
