UKIP backs israel

February 12, 2009

Members of the United Kingdom Independence Party are making a fresh attempt to relaunch a Friends of Israel group. Michael Zuckerman, secretary, said: “There is tremendous support for Israel within UKIP.” The planned group had the backing of party leader Nigel Farage and others among their nine MEPs, he said. Mr Zuckerman, a solicitor, said that although attempts to set up a Friends group started a couple of years ago, it had been stillborn.
