Views

On Britain and Israel

British Jews should have strategized a whole program to promote Israel and reconcile Israel's national-security interests with those of Britain, the way American Jews do. But this is something British Jewry has never done. It has never thought in terms of national security. Instead, it does some poor hasbara [public relations] for Israel. But it shouldn't be engaging in hasbara for Israel per se. It should be conveying that Israel is the bulwark against radical Islamism for Europe at large, and that if Israel's security is undermined, so is that of Europe. If Britain moves away from America's sphere of influence and towards that of the EU, there's no guarantee that it will be pro-Israel. [6]
