    UJS Campaigns Director Dan Sheldon has apologised for linking Zionist Federation co-vice-chair Jonathan Hoffman with the English Defence League.

    Mr Sheldon clashed with Mr Hoffman during a heated debate hosted by Leeds JSoc two weeks ago, over UJS’s “Liberation” campaign.

    Mr Sheldon claimed Mr Hoffman was "happy to demonstrate side-by-side with members of the EDL Jewish Division" during counter-protests at the Ahava store in Covent Garden.

    The full text of Mr Sheldon’s speech has been removed from the UJS website, and Mr Sheldon has posted an apology which says: "In a speech in Leeds, I stated that Jonathan Hoffman was "happy to demonstrate, side by side, with members of the EDL's Jewish Division". Jonathan has since voiced his clear opposition to the EDL. Therefore, I would like to offer a full apology to Jonathan for any hurt caused by my remarks."

    More than 120 people signed a petition calling for Mr Sheldon to resign.
