Manchester community questions MPs and ministers

February 4, 2010

A panel including Foreign Office Minister Ivan Lewis, Liverpool MP Louise Ellman and deputy Israeli ambassador Talya Lador-Fresher attracted a 200 crowd to South Manchester Synagogue in Bowdon on Sunday.

Topics covered included Operation Cast Lead and the Goldstone Report. Mr Lewis said the Goldstone Report, accusing Israel of war crimes, was flawed but defended the British decision not to vote against it at the UN.
