Israel Must Return to the Pre-67 lines: Obama is Right!

By Jonathan Hoffman, May 20, 2011

Dear Editor

I heartily agree that Israel should immediately return to the pre 67 lines.

Because in 67 CE, Jerusalem was host to the Holy Temple prior to both the Christian and Moslem conquerors occupying the Land given to the People of Israel by the Almighty.

Yours sincerely,

No To Some "Red Nose Day" Charities Tomorrow

By Jonathan Hoffman, March 17, 2011

"No" to those of the Red Nose charities which demonise Israel, eg War On Want...

I will post here a list of the charities RND supports so that you can give to the ones that do not demonise Israel. Do not donate to RND as some of your money will go to the demonisers.

"Is it OK to be Jewish and criticise Israel?"

By Jonathan Hoffman, March 4, 2011

Excellent well-chaired and well attended ZF/EDRS meeting at Edgware Reform last night. What a contrast with the average PSC or MEMRI meeting.

All four panellists were well-informed and passionate - but measured.

Zalmi Unsdorfer's opening salvo was especially good.

Goodbye Porter, Hello Hard Left?

By Jonathan Hoffman, February 22, 2011

Aaron Porter has turned his back on the National Union of Students.

With the level of student opposition to government policies very high, the door is wide open for a far Left successor to step in. It goes without saying that s/he will be an Israel hater.
