A very happy Yom Ha’atzmaut to all. Israel – 68 years young!
We are a non-partisan organisation, so we have expressed no view about the London Mayoral election or any other of the recent elections. We are of course concerned that whoever represents London will have a positive orientation towards Israel and the Jewish community. We were delighted that both leading candidates for Mayor expressed their support for next year’s proposed Tel Aviv Festival in London. We are also encouraged by this report that Sadiq Khan will consider visiting Tel Aviv. http://www.timesofisrael.com/londons-new-muslim-mayor-foresees-tel-aviv-trip/ We will need to maintain the pressure to ensure that both of these commitments are met.
