Conflict of interest is not an issue here

    Most British Jews feel no conflict between their ties to Israel and their British citizenship.

    Two thirds, 66 per cent, said they had experienced no conflict of loyalty, while 28 per cent did (though only seven per cent felt this strongly).

    However, 63 per cent felt that they were held responsible for Israel's actions by non-Jews.

    Those living in densely-populated Jewish areas in London felt more comfortable than those living in other parts of the country, including the north of England and Scotland.

    The survey, which was carried out before the UK General Election, also sheds light for the first time on Jewish voting. Six per cent said that Israel was the central issue for them in elections; 31 per cent gave it a high priority; 34 per cent say they considered it but only after more important issues; and 26 per cent said it never affected their vote.

    Israel is a feature in UK elections

    According to the report, those who "lean to the Conservative Party are the most likely to consider Israel a high or central priority when they vote" (45 per cent), compared with only 19 per cent of Liberal Democrat supporters. But two out of five who were undecided which political party to support said they would be influenced by Israel matters.
