The cracks are showing between members of the Conservative Party and David Cameron as former defence minister, Peter Luff, is the latest Conservative to call for the government to take tougher action over Gaza.
Mr Luff, a Conservative MP who was a defence minister between 2010 and 2012, said the Israeli government had an “absolute right” to protect its people from rocket attacks from Hamas militants.
And while he said it was impossible to avoid civilian casualties in such a densely populated area, he said the reported death toll of more than 1,500 Gaza residents – including hundreds of children – was unacceptable.
“I am clear that Israel, in particular, needs to be much more careful about how it reacts to Hamas’ extreme provocation,” he told BBC Radio 4’s World at One.
“We have seen very intense military bombardments of residential areas of Gaza, using non-precision munitions.
“I am convinced that Israel’s very sophisticated intelligence-gathering machinery and its high-tech defence industries could do much better in terms of pinpointing and targeting the attacks it is making on the Hamas war machine.”
Other Conservative MPs have raised concerns over the government’s stance, including former foreign office minister Alastair Burt and Margot James.
Of course, the Conservative MPs are hardly likely to directly criticise the Conservative led government, but considering that they are making statements at all indicates that the divide between the Conservative membership and Cameron is widening – and not just on the subject of Gaza.
Cameron seems to be concentrating his energies on provoking conflict with Russia. As we have reported before, Cameron seems to be determined to have some kind of war while he is leading the government. His attempts at intervening in Syria were well and truly quashed by public opinion, members of parliament voting against his motions, and the Russians at the G8.
Cameron’s actions against Russia seem more of a personal vendetta for blocking his Syrian intervention that any attempt to bring peace to the Ukraine.
In the meantime he is ignoring the situation in Gaza, which will cost him dearly.
