Whoops! Pardon me. The roll I really have in mind is this one, which also belongs in the latrine:
'We are Jews in Britain who support UN Security Council Resolution 2334. This confirms that the establishment of settlements “has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law”. The resolution demands that “Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory”.
As President Trump takes over at the White House, it becomes ever more important for Jews around the world to stand up publicly on the side of international law, common sense and justice and to welcome this UN Resolution. We know that the great majority of American Jews supported former President Obama. His refusal to veto Resolution 2334 ensured that it would pass, with the unanimous supporting vote of the other fourteen Security Council members, including Britain. And we know that the great majority of American Jews oppose Donald Trump for his racism, sexism, promotion of hatred towards Muslims, and association with white supremacists and blatant antisemites. They will also be alarmed that Trump has appointed David Friedman, a strong supporter of the settlement movement, as the next US ambassador to Israel.
Here in Britain we also know – from meticulous City University research, overseen by eminent Jewish academics – that the great majority of British Jews are opposed to the settlement project. When leaders of the Board of Deputies declared their opposition to Resolution 2334, they did not speak in our name.
Fifty years of Occupation represents a tragic failure: Israel’s denial of human and civil rights to millions of people; thousands of lives lost, most though not all Palestinian; many hundreds of thousands more, in both Palestinian and Israeli Jewish communities, traumatised by war, hatred and loss of hope. We ask our fellow Jews in Britain to make our majority voice heard. We must welcome the opening of a door towards a better future for all Israelis and Palestinians by declaring:
No to continuing Occupation…….. No to settlements……… No to settlement expansion…….. No to buying settlement products……… Yes to a just peace.'
Yes, the names on the roll call are pretty well impossible to read on here, even with a magnifying glass. Trust me: they are those of Jewish and Jew-ish academics and fellow-travellers who can always be relied upon to malign Israel whenever the clarion call is sounded. Some have a history of extreme activism against the little Jewish State including support for Ilan Pappe's appalling "One State Declaration".
The three groups represented: Jews for Justice for Palestinians (consisting of wet well-meaning dupes along with Jews for injustice for Israel), Independent Jewish Voices, and Jewish Socialists.
A member of the last-mentioned group, a London educator, tells of the ad's reception by the Jewish News, the giveaway paper in London that published my Stephen Sizer 9/11 screenshot, thus leaving the Jewish Chronicle, which had told me it was not interested, with egg on its face after that screenshot image went viral. Seems that the Jewish Chronicle is all over the place these days:
