In a statement released Tuesday, council Chairman Jack Rosen said the British leader never mentioned that "Gaza's million-and-a-half Palestinians live under the control of Hamas, a terrorist organization, or that the activists aboard the Mavo Marmara vessel were committed in word and deed to lynching the Israeli officers who boarded their ship." "Feeding the myth that Israel is entirely to blame for the current situation is a risky and unfair strategy. Israel has never acted in the kind of vacuum implied by the Prime Minister," the statement continued. "We urge him to recommit to a consistent and balanced approach that holds all sides accountable, regardless of which audience is being addressed."
