An evidence-based view of the Arab-Israeli conflict

Isra-Prof is the pen name of a distinguished retired medical professor, Academic Director of Stand With Us UK, and valued member of North London Friends of Israel. This is a series of articles on his blog with important and in many cases little-known information about Israel and the conflict.

He is especially expert on public health issues relating to the Palestinian Territories, and the positive impact that Israel has made in this area (contrary to the usual misinformation).

NLFI report on the abuse of children as soldiers

One of the ugliest features of the Israel-Palestine conflict is the cynical manipulation of young children by the Palestinian leaderships and armed militias, which is generally not highlighted in the Western media.

We feel it is of the utmost importance that as many people as possible are aware of the realities of what is actually happening on the ground.

Children are being killed or mutilated due to a campaign of indoctrination to commit acts of violence, are being used as human shields and are abused in building terror tunnels.

We urge you to read the attached document, which explains in detail the many situations in which children are subject to horrific practices and are deprived of their right to childhood, enshrined in international human rights law.

Child soldiers in the Middle East – report

This document has been sent to a number of prominent opinion-formers, and we are hoping to circulate it as widely as possible.

 

We stand against the Israel haters

The counter-demo against Al Quds Day took place on Sunday. While some gathered in Whitehall to hear speeches and promote their support for Israel, others disrupted the haters’ march, significantly delaying it and leading it along its route with Israeli flags and songs!

Speakers included representatives of the Zionist Federation, the Board of Deputies, North London Friends of Israel and Sussex Friends of Israel. We were delighted to welcome Matthew Offord MP (Hendon) who pledged his support.
