Prominent British Jews Demand Israel Halts Violence

By Ben Cohen

Proof that Judaism and Israel are not synonymous. From the Guardian:

A group of Britain’s most prominent Jews has called on Israel to cease its military operations in Gaza

immediately, warning that its actions, far from improving the country’s

security, will “strengthen extremism, destabilise the region, and

exacerbate tensions inside Israel”.

Describing themselves, as

“profound and passionate supporters” of Israel – and supporting its

right to defend itself against the “war crime” of Hamas rocket attacks

– they added that the current tactics threatened to undermine

international support for Israel.
