British Politician Calls for Sanctions Against Israel

Sir Gerald Kaufman, a leading British Member of Parliment has called for sanctions against Israel, and accused elements in the IDF as being ‘out of control.’ He was speaking on the influential BBC Radio 4 ‘Today’ program.

Kaufman has made similar charges before, and has been labelled ‘a self-hating Jew’ by the Board of Deputies of British Jews. None the less, the inevitable backlash is bound to occur, so please write or e-mail your support to:

two British peace activists, an MP has said.

Sir Gerald Kaufman, Labour MP for Manchester Gorton, claimed there was an
element in the Israeli military which was “out of control.”
