While reading The Guardian today in a rather upmarket 'greasy spoon' in the leafy Liverpool surburb of Mossley Hill, Lord Roby came upon this rather disturbing story of Arab-Israeli disharmony.Sabbar Kushor an Israeli of Arab descent introduced himself as a Jewish batchelor seeking a serious relationship with a Jewish woman.The Jewish woman who,he had consensual sex with shortly after, in downtown east Jerusalem, subsequently found out the truth about his Arab upbringing and filed criminal charges of rape.Sabbar Kushor was sentenced to 18 months in prison on Monday.The judge declaring 'the court is obliged to protect the public interest from sophisticated smooth tongued criminals, who can deceive innocent victims at an unbearable price,the sanctity of their bodies and souls' Is this literally a case of where 'Yes' means 'No'? My overriding concern in all this;is that when I met Lady Roby(a staunch Liverpool fan) in The Sausage Factory all them years ago,I'm pretty sure I told her I was an Evertonian BEFORE the relationship was consummated !!! Didn't I ?
And so it begins.
