Board of Deputies Vice President  Marie van der Zyl said: “Crispin Blunt MP’s defence of his decision to chair an event alongside Ismail Patel is itself indefensible. Patel has endorsed Hamas, which fires missiles on innocent civilians and enshrines antisemitism in its charter. We call on Mr Blunt to apologise and commit not to share a platform with people with such questionable views.”
