Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has condemned the anti-Israel demonstration which took place before a talk at King’s college London by former Israeli minister Dan Meridor.

Jonathan said: “While the Board of Deputies supports the right to demonstrate peacefully, we were appalled at the scenes last night at King’s College London where those attending a talk by Dan Meridor were barracked and intimidated in a completely unacceptable way. Clearly, there are deficiencies in King’s College’s event management which allowed these scenes to take place. We will be contacting  the Principal to discuss last night’s events and to gain assurances that there will be no repeat.”
