Writing letters to local newspapers is an important part of our activity. In particular, when they publish letters or articles that are offensive or hostile to Israel, we need to be prepared to respond to get our views in the public domain.
The Camden New Journal is a local paper in the Camden area which is frequently anti-Israel. Recently they published a couple of letters defending Jeremy Corbyn and dismissing the furore over antisemitism in the Labour Party as a plot by Corbyn’s enemies – and incidentally making vile allegations about Israel.
Here is a letter we were able to get published in response, demonstrating that we can make an impact even in unsympathetic media.
