Vote that “Zio” is a racist insult

Camden Council are to debate a motion that “Zio” is a racist, antisemitic insult. The local paper, the Ham&High, has an article and a vote on whether “Zio” is indeed racist. Please go to the site and vote ‘Yes’. Link here.

Also, if you’re a Camden voter, please write to your Councillor to urge him or her to support the motion. Let’s expose the bigotry of the Israel-haters for what it is.

Good news from the latest BICOM poll

israel-demo

The new BICOM survey of UK opinion on Israel and the Middle East is published today. Headline points:

  • 24% of the British public feel ‘warm’ towards Israelis compared with 20% who feel warm towards the Palestinians.
  • 57 % felt that Israel was Britain’s ally, the highest percentage for any Middle Eastern country. This is a 5 % increase on two years ago.
  • 48 % felt that “hating Israel and questioning its right to exist” was “anti-Semitic,” with 45 % of Muslim respondents agreeing with that statement, while only 20 % thought otherwise.

We are making a difference!
