Jonathan Turner is a barrister and member of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

He has been described as 'head of the Zionist Federation's legal group' in the Jewish Chronicle and is also a founder of UK Lawyers for Israel.[1][2]

Turner was - along with CAMERA - the source of a complaint about BBC Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen's allegedly anti-Israel bias which eventually brought about a ruling that the reporter had breached impartiality.[3]
