The Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council have responded to an Amnesty International report which  demands tourist websites should remove listings from the West Bank and parts of Jerusalem

A statement from the two organisations said: “Amnesty International has a long record of double standards on Israel. We will not forget how Amnesty recently left Jews out of its work on racism and refused to allow the Jewish Leadership Council to host an event at its offices. No surprise then, that they now see Jewish access to Judaism’s holiest site, the Western Wall as a reason to criticise Israel.”
