I urge those invited to Gordon Brown's Chanuka Candle Lighting ceremony on Wednesday to stay away.
This is the government that has said Israel's action was "wrong and counterproductive";
Whose foreign secretary agreed that Israel's action was "disproportionate";
Which gave £35,000 to Breaking the Silence - a group of dissident IDF veterans;
Which began a partial arms embargo on Israel, on the grounds that the Israeli ships for which the parts were destined were supposedly engaged in acts of "internal repression";
That has a Cabinet Minister Ben Bradshaw who said (Any Questions? (January 23)): "I am afraid the BBC has to stand up to the Israeli authorities occasionally... Israel has a long reputation of bullying the BBC..." ;
Whose leader Gordon Brown personally initiated the March 31 meeting to ask supermarkets to label goods from West Bank settlements, now enshrined in DEFRA's statement on Friday;
Which supported the original Swedish EU Resolution to divide Jerusalem.
This is the most anti-Israel UK government for many years.
If you are invited please stay away, tell the Prime Minister why - and go public here.
