The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

A pro-Is­rael ac­tivist had planned to sabotage a fringe meet­ing on Palestine at the Labour Party con­fer­ence in Brighton this week — book­ing 150 tick­ets online with the aim of leav­ing the seats empty on the night. But he had to think twice about the spoiler plan when po­lice called him to say that the pro-Pales­tinian camp had ex­pressed con­cern about the book­ings. As the po­lice feared the event could be­come a flash­point, he re­as­sured them that “we had no in­ten­tion of at­tend­ing” and in­stead re­leased the tick­ets.
