The Board of Deputies of British Jews is giving succour to the most powerful creator of anti-Jewish feeling worldwide
20 February, 2020
• I WOULD like as a Jew to echo Dr O’Brien’s criticism of Sir Keir Starmer’s signing up to the pledges of the British Board of Deputies of British Jews, (Some of the ‘pledge’ demands by the board of deputies are deeply concerning, February 13).
In supporting the present colonial and annexationist Israeli government, which is bringing disgust and shame upon many diaspora Jews and upon some in Israel itself, the BoD is giving succour to the most powerful creator of anti-Jewish feeling worldwide.
One should not say “anti-Semitic” because many Palestinians are also Semitic – our brothers and sisters with whom one day a unified secular state will be created in Israel/ Palestine.
A prize-winning competition could be held for naming this new state, which many of us have looked forward to for so long.
