Tories� extreme stand a bid for Jewish vote

"The names were read quickly and without any information establishing the veracity of the charges against the individuals named. . . .
 a list of names from the Liberal campaign -- volunteers, paid staff workers and candidates alike -- who had been identified by the Tories as "enemies" of Israel.
.         .     .
This was not an impetuous act; it was part of a carefully scripted strategy to use Israel as a wedge issue to capture majority support from Canadian Jews."

As a continuing observer of foreign affaire I wonder whether should a wider list be made would it include  as "enemies of Israel"

all believing the level of attacks on Gaza were unjustified and the continual taking of more and more land for settlements unjust?

Brought to mind by composing this list is the politics of Rome as Shakespeare wrote it
"Look, with a spot I damn him."
Julius Caesar  Act 4, Scene 1
