Ken Livingstone is no Neville Chamberlain

Some people compare London Mayor Ken Livingstone with former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, because the former practices the same appeasement with respect to Islamist as the latter practiced with respect to Nazi Germany.

However I beg to differ: with all ills Mr. Chamberlain caused, he had a decency to stop this policy after Hitler' invasion in Poland and to resign later while Mr. Livinstone continues his bizarre behavior. Looks more like Lord Haw-Haw for me. Will the end be the same?

After an innocent person was killed by London police officers who mistakenly took him for a terrorist, Mr. Livingstone justified their actions. However, Israelis managed to apprehend many real suicide bombers without killing them, thus saving lives of these misguided and may be undeserving to be saved people. So, may be Mr. Livingstone should send some bobbies to Israel to learn from Israel police/IDF? Or is it too much ask from Mr. Livingstone and he prefers top have more innocents to be killed?

And Scumnesty International which screams when IDF kills the terrorist, keeps mum about the murder of an innocent. Is it because their headquarters are in London?
