Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks appealed in Trafalgar Square for Palestinians to live side by side in peace with Israel.
“Today, because of Israel, there is at least a chance of peace,” he said. “Yet every time Israel proposes peace, it is greeted with terror and suicide bombings, Katyushas and Kassams. Israel will continue to seek peace — we will continue to support it doing so. We pay tribute to the UK government for its support for Israel and for peace.
