Board of Deputies Vice President Amanda Bowman has condemned an event which took place at Leeds University featuring Palestinian terrorist Leila Khaled.

Amanda said: “That a student event took place at Leeds with Leila Khaled is simply unacceptable. Jewish students and academics should have access to academic spaces free of hate, without platforms being shared with someone who advocates for ‘armed struggle’. It is right that the University is investigating this matter further. The event raises questions about regulation of online gatherings.”
