Why the Board Should Vote "No" To Oxfam

By Jonathan Hoffman, January 21, 2013

This is an edited version of the original, sent to Deputies - full links were appended. The motion to partner with Oxfam was carried 113 - 65, 15 abstentions

1. Why are you bringing this motion?

(a) Because the Oxfam project was initiated undemocratically


Oxfam links: Why we shouldn’t

By Jonathan Hoffman, January 3, 2013

In November we learned from the JC that the Board had agreed to an Oxfam tie-up. Quite apart from annoyance at a fait accompli by the executive of a supposedly democratic body, we judged that many deputies would oppose this tie-up, however worthy the cause.

It’s the season for retrospectives of the year about to end, so here goes:


East Jerusalem: The Truth

By Jonathan Hoffman, December 30, 2012

The facts on the ground put the lie to so many of the BDS claims - such as 'ethnic cleansing'

A surprising process of 'Israelisation' is taking place among Palestinians in East Jerusalem


Lord Phillips: Jews On Suicide Path

By Jonathan Hoffman, December 15, 2012

"Jihad" Jenny Tonge has at last been expelled from the LibDems but Andrew Phillips has lost no time in replacing her as the nastiest LibDem in the House of Lords.

This is the very same ignoble Lord who has opined that "America is in the grip of the well-organised Jewish Lobby" and that "non-Jewish critics of Israel are silent for fear of being labelled ‘antisemitic’".

William Hague - You Cannot Be Serious!!

By Jonathan Hoffman, December 4, 2012

Yesterday the UK Foreign Office called in the Israeli Ambassador for a dressing-down after Foreign Secretary Hague condemned the Israeli announcement of plans for 3,000 more homes in the Disputed Territories and the intention to approve planning and zoning for the area of E1 (an area between Jerusalem and Ma'ale Adumim).

By Jonathan Hoffman, November 22, 2012

Last night I first went to Hackney Town Hall. The Council was due to consider a request from a Labour Member to invite in a Deputation to speak against Veolia, in order to lobby the Council and two of its members on the North London Waste Authority, with regards to the contracts they are considering.


Vile Israel Question on BBC "Any Questions"

By Jonathan Hoffman, November 21, 2012

Last Friday’s “Any Questions” on BBC Radio 4 had a vile question on Israel from “Steve Bedford”:

Despite all the foreign aid and support, Israel has spectacularly failed to get on with its neighbours. Does Israel deserve a future?

Unbelievably some (no doubt Guardian-reading) BBC Researcher on the programme thought this a suitable question to pick.

Deprogramming students from the Palestine Solidarity Cult

By Jonathan Hoffman, November 13, 2012

A new term and thousands of brand new students to brainwash so it was down to the University of London Students’ Union last night where the Palestine Solidarity Cult held a meeting to discuss boycotting of Israeli culture and academia. Predictably the ingénues were subjected to a farrago of lies.
