MID-EAST MELEE IN EDINBURGH

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment & Analysis -

DANIEL Cainer got more than he bar­gained for at the Edinburgh Fes­ti­val. Af­ter a per­for­mance of his mu­si­cal act More Jewish Chron­i­cles, a cou­ple con­fronted him and be­gan to be­rate him for lack of sup­port for Is­rael.

He was "quite sur­prised. I’ve worked for the UJIA, WIZO and know the new Is­raeli am­bas­sador to the UK.” While feel­ing con­flicted over some things there, he was cer­tainly not anti-Is­raeli, he said.

A pro-Pales­tinian then joined in the con­tretemps, leav­ing Mr Cainer qui­etly to slip away as the ar­gu­ments con­tin­ued.
