Tower Hamlets council backs Israel boycott

By Simon Rocker, February 10, 2011

The East London council of Tower Hamlets has voted to "do everything in its power" to support a boycott of "the pariah state" of Israel.

Councillors also called for a review of the borough's £15 million contract with multinational Veolia for waste collection because of the company's work in Israel.

But a council spokesman said that any decision to cut ties with Veolia would rest with Mayor Lutfur Rahman or his cabinet.

The original motion, proposed by Respect councillors Harun Miah and Fozol Miah, had urged the council to "terminate" all contracts with Veolia.

The haimishe challah baked in Banglatown

By John Nathan, January 21, 2011

It is Friday morning and it is peak challah-buying time at Rinkoff's. Peter, who works in the legal profession, has been buying challah here for four years. He is partial to the strudel too. Next in the queue is Michelle who lives round the corner, and works as a volunteer for the area's ageing and dwindling Jewish community.

The area was once the cradle of Britain's Jewish community, with more than 150,000 Jewish immigrants. Now there are now only 2,000 or so in the East End where Rinkoff's opened 100 years ago this year. So who is buying the challah in Whitechapel these days?

On this day: Oswald Mosley dies

By Jennifer Lipman, December 3, 2010

After the death of Britain’s wartime fascist leader at the age of 84, the JC wrote that the demise far right leader stirred “bitter memories of the 1930s and the immediate post-war period, when the Jewish community was subjected to a vicious campaign of vilification, often accompanied by physical violence.”

Educated at Winchester, trained at Sandhurst, the young politician was elected in 1918 to represent Harrow, north-west London, for the Conservatives. At just 22, he was the youngest MP in the house.
