Regarding Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh's Funeral
1. *The Israel Police coordinated with Abu Akleh's family, made preparation & acted throughout the day in order to allow the funeral procession to proceed without disruption. The procession is a complicated, loaded event
2. *The police acted against a group of rioters attempting to disrupt the funeral procession, against the wishes of the family.*

THREAD (Please share)
20 years ago one of the most shameful moments in UN history occurred. The Durban Conference was held in South Africa under UN auspices and was meant to help defeat global racism.
In reality, it achieved the exact opposite!
The antisemitism of the original Durban Conf. gave birth to a whole new level of Jew hate not seen since the Nazis of WWII. A draft document that equated 'Zionism with racism' was only the start

Some important information has just been brought to my attention regarding the proposed march in Luton tomorrow and the warning given for Jews to consider venturing into Luton
The 'march' is now no longer a march. Under the advice of Bedfordshire police, the event will now be static with NO convoy of cars expected.
This event had nothing to do with Luton Council of Mosques but has been organised by a local group with no affiliations to the LCM

This is a great headline @SkyNews, shame it’s not entirely true.
When he was asked directly if Israel has a right to exist he said “No...why, why”
Yes he says ‘ceasefire will hold for now’ but I’ve watched it twice and I can’t see where he says what headline suggests.
He clearly refuses any possibility of a 2SS.
He is asked ‘if he would share the land with Israeli Jews?”
Mumbles some non-answer
His peace doesn’t involve ‘justice for Palestinians’ as per your headline
Simply put, his ‘peace’ means the destruction of Israel.

Just getting back from today’s #SolidarityWithIsrael rally. Such a wonderful atmosphere with all the speakers talking of peace.
The total opposite of yesterday’s ‘hate fest’.
Yes, we might be smaller in numbers but when it comes to message, there’s no comparison
Huge thanks to Dalia, Steve, Paul at @ZionistFed for a remarkable effort. To all the speakers including @TzipiHotovely, @jonnysgoldstein, @BoDPres thank you. Your messages of peace and tolerance where heard loud and clear.

Oh my. @bbcnews have just sunk to a new all time low with their report on Bethlehem. Why is it @bbclysedoucet that Christians are fleeing the area? You seem to have forgotten to mention that Christians are being persecuted by the PA, I can’t imagine why you omitted that?
As for the ‘Israelis call it a security barrier’ @bbclysedoucet, IT IS a security barrier! It has saved countless lives. Without it you’d be reporting on dead children blown up by suicide bombers.

A very personal thread but just feels like the time to say it
8 years ago when I first got heavily involved in pro-Israel advocacy following the antisemitic attacks on a local Israeli owned shop, I was often asked a single question
“Why don’t you you just go and live in Israel?”
My answer was always that I would go when I choose to not because I feel like I’ve been forced to.

The people of Peterborough (with considerable help from a larger number of MPs, many of whom we considered friends!) have just elected a highly divisive antisemite to represent them in Parliament. They didn’t do it without being fully aware of Forbes ramblings.
They must have been fully aware that Ms Forbes ‘liked’ a post claiming that Theresa May had a ‘Zionist Slave Master agenda’.
Enough people voted for Ms Forbes in the full understanding that she had ‘enjoyed’ reading a thread which claimed ISIS was created by the CIA and Mossad

This Sunday, we stand with Germany:
The response to rising Antisemitism should never be to hide our religious identity.
To hide is to lose.
In Germany, a warning has been issued advising against the wearing of kippot, the Jewish skull cap, in public.
This is simply unacceptable.
In response to this alarming development, German Antisemitism Commissioner Felix Klein has called on ALL Germans to don a kippot ahead of the annual anti-Israel hate fest, the ‘Al Quds Day’ rally, on Saturday.

As a member of #Brighton/#Hove's small Jewish community I can tell you that there is something fundamentally wrong with our great city at present. Our community deserves more.
Time and time again these incidents happen here - in our home - and they do not happen without our community shaking their heads in disbelief.
"If you prick us do we not bleed?"

Yesterday we saw a horrendous attack on a Synagogue in San Diego in which Lori Kaye (BDE) was senselessly murdered by a gunman and 3 others wounded. This is not the first nor sadly will it be the last attack on one of our places of worship.
Shortly before y'days attack in San Diego @NudderingNudnik wrote a thread about a credible risk to his own shul here in the UK that was considered of such seriousness that the police felt the need for a high profile presence during the Shabbat service.
Wow! Just when you thought the ‘kids’ of @brightonbds had reached a pinnacle of stupidity, ignorance and ridiculousness they come along and prove that their journey into farce hasn’t yet concluded. Allow me to explain:
The kids have been quiet this week and a quick glance showed us they’ve spent the last week focusing on matters other than Palestine/Israel/Jews & on how they were saving the planet. We are truly grateful. We hope they spend far more of their time on this worthwhile project

The @Guardian op-ed this morning is simply abhorrent! A work of such unbridled hate and loathing for the Jewish state that antisemites around the globe will be joyously hugging each other simply at the sight of it! @HonestReporting have done a wonderful job in deconstructing this worthless piece of fiction that the authors of the 'Protocols' would be proud of! You can find that here: theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

Last night some friends went to the Blockheads gig in Islington.
They went confident in the knowledge that antisemite Gilad Atzmon would not be appearing as advised by @IslingtonBC.
Sadly that was not the case!
Atzmon dressed as Santa is still Atzmon!
They are seriously considering their options today.
Had they known that Atzmon was playing they simply would not have attended.

Just back from a few days away so sadly missed this. As usual, the hate mongers of @BrightonBDS and @BrightonPSC have taken to lying when the truth doesn't fit their narrative of events.
No intimidation, surrounding nor blocking. It was simply a group of pro-Israel supporters sick to death of the hate, bigotry and lies that the BDS and PSC have been disseminating on the streets of our city for well over a decade. It was Jew (and non-Jew) saying #EnoughIsEnough!

Today was Foreign Office Questions in Parliament. As usual, Israel/Palestine featured heavily (somewhat surprisingly only the THREE questions today!) Some excellent contributions from both sides of the house and one or two interesting answers from the F.O
Firstly we had MP and @CFoI Parliamentary Chairman @SCrabbPembs speaking of the wonderful work by @SaveChildsHeart in saving the lives of both Palestinian and Israeli children and the importance of projects such as SACH that bring together both Palestinians and Israelis.

WATCH-Some very strong words from Labour peer Lord Triesman directed at the leader of his own party during a debate on 'religious intolerance in the U.K' taking place this evening in the House of Lords
More wise and welcome words from tonight's debate. This from Conservative peer Lord Gadhia serves to underline the strong relationship between the U.K's Jewish and Indian communities. Praises @BoardofDeputies and @JLC_uk among others

On Sunday Jewish families will sit down together across the U.K. to celebrate #RoshHashana.
A few things the haters need to know:
We have done so, in the same way, for hundreds of years. We have sat in our British homes, in our British streets, in our British towns and cities celebrating a Jewish holiday without ever fearing for our future

Hey @LBC, you've just posted the heart breaking clip of 'Mandy from Edgware' in tears on the @MaajidNawaz. She clearly feared for her future as a proud Jew & Zionist here in the U.K.
These are some of the comments from under the post!
Here's the latest ones! They all seem to be on a similiar theme!

Last night approx. 90 people, mainly from the Jewish com. went to see a film - ‘An Israeli Love Story’ @dukesatkomedia in Brighton. What happened both outside the venue & inside left the mainly elderly audience asking if it was safe to leave once the film was finished. 1/
This was #Brighton/#Hove, a City of Sanctuary, liberal, tolerant, diverse. But not for all it’s residents! Over the last number of years we have increasingly been intimidated & bullied by those hiding behind their ‘pro-Palestinian’ agenda.
