Lauren Booth once asked a very poor mother in Gaza why she had so many children? “We need at least seven children to each family here,” the mother responded. “Why? Because at least two will be killed by Israeli soldiers. Two more, will be imprisoned by Israelis for a long time or crippled by Israeli rockets. Two may be lucky to receive education, leave Palestine and never return. Which leaves only one child to look after us in our old age“.

The debate which was scheduled to be held at University of Westminster Campus - but was cancelled due to threats of disturbance, from UK based Zionist militants.
