This week, the Minister released a strong statement through a video message about the Israeli government’s decision to demolish the Palestinian Bedouin village Khan al-Ahmar east of Jerusalem, after the Israeli Supreme Court rejected the final appeal against the government’s decision.
He said that the UK is very concerned about the impact of the demolition, warning that any forced relocation could constitute forcible transfer of people as far as the United Nations is concerned.
As supporters of Israel, who believe that the only way Israel can preserve its future as a safe and secure, Jewish and democratic state is to create the foundations for a durable resolution with the Palestinian people, we warmly welcome the Minister’s statement.
Now is our opportunity to thank the Minister for his continued support and attention he is paying to the impending demolition of Khan Al-Ahmar. We want to let him know he has the support of members of the Jewish community who care about Israel.
