In response to claims by Gerald Kaufman that ‘Jewish money’ has influenced the Conservative Party and his claim that Israel ‘fabricates stabbings’ in order to ‘execute Palestinians’, the President of the Board of Deputies Jonathan Arkush has made this statement:

“We condemn Sir Gerald’s outrageous comments. We challenge him to travel to Israel immediately to ride around with the emergency services and to see for himself whether it is possible to fabricate knife attacks when victims are lying on the ground with blood pouring from their wounds. We also invite the Labour Party to initiate disciplinary proceedings to investigate his disgraceful words.”
