EM­BASSY PROTEST

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment -

I was at the Is­raeli Em­bassy on March 30 and it is true we were heav­ily out­num­bered ( In London, more needed to face down the bul­lies, April 6) — not least, per­haps, be­cause it was close to Shab­bat, which is when the PSC choose to hold their de­mos, although that did not de­ter Ne­turei Karta). But the ZF were not all in Hun­gary. Some of those who can claim to be “the usual stal­warts” were there.

How­ever, I am not sure the lack of a mega­phone mer­its crit­i­cism. I have yet to see that any use­ful pur­pose is served by the two sides bel­low­ing mean­ing­less in­sults at each other. I and those near me handed out nu­mer­ous pro-is­rael leaflets and I like to think that even if only a tiny frac­tion were read, it may have done some good, par­tic­u­larly those ex­plain­ing how Save a Child’s Heart helps Pales­tinian ba­bies with­out dis­crim­i­na­tion.
