British Jews cancel Abbas meeting

Ma’an – 23/01/2012

TEL AVIV – Jewish community leaders in Britain canceled a meeting with President Mahmoud Abbas during his visit to London last week, an Israeli newspaper reported Monday.

The meeting was supposed to be one of several Abbas has held with Jewish leaders around the world in an effort to increase pressure on Israel to move forward with peace talks, Haaretz reported.

However, the meeting in Britain was called off following a request from representatives of the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office and the Israeli Embassy in London, according to the report.

The British government sought to convince the Jewish leaders to hold the meeting, Haaretz said.

The report says the Palestinian envoy in London sought to arrange the meeting several weeks ago. Manuel Hassassian and British Foreign Office officials asked leaders of the Jewish community to attend.

  2. “Jewish community leaders in Britain”

    “with Jewish leaders”

    “The British government sought to convince the Jewish leaders”

    “asked leaders of the Jewish community to attend.”

    JEWISH LEADERS! WTF – aren’t these people simply British citizens who choose Israel over the country of their birth? Why are these ‘leaders’ never named? Why do they take orders from Israel and then scream Antisemitism when you suggest they are supporters of war-crimes, apartheid and crimes against humanity?

    When will British Jews stand up against Israel and it’s “Jewish Leaders”?

    • Correct! Memo to Abbas: Israel does want peace. Israel wants land…all of it. “Greater Israel” is defined(geographically, not politically) as being “from the Euphrates to the Nile”. The political Israeli borders have no boundaries.
