Report by Jeremy Havardi
On 13 September, Tony Swabe represented B’nai B’rith UK’s Bureau of International Affairs in the Quarterly Roundtable of the Jewish community at the Foreign Office with the Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt MP who has recently returned from a visit to Israel. The group raised the issue of incitement in Jerusalem with reference to the ongoing violence and terror against Israelis and discussed views about Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah. The Minister is well disposed towards Israel and the London Bureau hopes to be continuing its contacts with him.
