Too many Labour councillors still think Corbyn is in charge
For those who think the UK Labour Party has turned the corner on its proclivity for antisemitism I have bad news for you, it hasn’t. Not only are the party’s latest published statistics awful and the ratio of expulsions pathetic, but there is also a...

It’s well past time to expose the calumny that Israel is an apartheid state
It is sometimes difficult to write about an ongoing wrong when there is a live obscenity dominating the headlines. So, let me say straight up, I stand with the Ukrainian people against Putin’s war. And while this war has seriously exposed the deficiencies of the...

Hamas pressed the start button on every war. Fully proscribing it is right
The Israel Britain Alliance, its partners and supporters in every part of the United Kingdom campaigned hard for the full proscription of the Iranian backed terror group Hamas, and our efforts have been rewarded with the announcement by Home Secretary, Priti Patel, that Hamas will...

After congratulating the Taliban, Hamas must be banned by Britain

A riot is no place for a child or baby and our MPs must speak out
There is a tradition in the United Kingdom of supporting internationalism. The belief that the people of the world should unite to advance common interests, and that long-term interests are more important than short-term disputes. The League of Nations, founded in 1920, was given the responsibility...

The uncomfortable reality Auntie BBC has to face
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is as close to being a secular religious institution as you will find. This oxymoron is deliberate. The corporation has come a long way since Arthur Burrows crackled over the airwaves in 1922. It is a £5 billion a year...

Time to end an absolute wrong on Hezbollah
A common complaint is that all politicians are in it for themselves. I disagree. Most politicians, regardless of party, are committed to public service. Only every once and a while is there a day with an absolute right and an absolute wrong. On all other...

We’re not attacking free speech, but hate speech
It’s a vehicle using malice aforethought designed to isolate the state of Israel from humankind by comparing it to one of the worst regimes that the world has had the misfortune to endure. The three words, Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW), are designed to evoke pictures...

Time for politicians to express their horror of Hezbollah
In May 2013 I led a debate in the House of Commons calling on the Government to proscribe Hezbollah. I listed the full Hezbollah charge sheet; that it regards itself as a single, indivisible entity, its illegitimacy as a political party; allegations of involvement in...
