The Israeli ambassador, Ron Prosor, has urged British Jews to speak out for Israel in the media.
Addressing a large audience on the penultimate day of the Limmud
education conference in Warwick University, he said: “It is important for you to stand up, especially today, when the state of Israel is unified on this issue of Gaza and make your opinion known — to the broadsheets, to television, to radio.”
Britain was an international media centre, he observed, and the public in West European countries were generally less sympathetic to Israel than their governments.
