Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has condemned the Palestine Expo scheduled to take place in London this weekend.
He said: “The so-called Palestine Expo features a line-up of speakers characterised by their hatred towards one country – Israel. Some have shown a notable degree of solidarity with terrorist organisations like Hamas. The event shows every sign of being a hatefest which is hostile to British values and totally inconsistent with the government’s efforts to counter extremists. It should not have been allowed to go ahead, especially in a publicly owned building.”
