Board of Deputies response to Naz Shah MP’s remarks
The Board of Deputies has responded to news reports of Naz Shah MP’s comments on Israel prior to becoming a Member of Parliament.
Senior Vice President Richard Verber said: “Naz Shah’s comments about relocating Israelis to the United States are simply appalling. She has since apologised and stepped down as John McDonnell’s Parliamentary Private Secretary. The Board of Deputies of British Jews has sought an urgent meeting for clarification of her views on Israel and the UK Jewish community.”
