    Theresa May highlights Balfour Declaration centennial, vows to fight BDS and says ‘Britain would not be Britain without its Jews’

    In her first address to the British Jewish community as prime minister, to mark the upcoming Jewish New Year festival, Theresa May praised the relationship between the UK and Israel and reaffirmed the British Government’s long-held position of support for Israel’s right to self-defense.

    Writing in the latest edition of the magazine for the Conservative Friends of Israel, a pro-Israel group in her ruling Conservative party, May said that the UK’s relationship with Israel was “as strong as ever.” She heralded the close ties between the two countries, in particular in bilateral trade, scientific research, security cooperation and shared values.

    May highlighted the fact that the UK and Israel will soon mark the 100-year anniversary of affirmation by then Conservative foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour of the “UK’s support for the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people” — in a document now known as the Balfour Declaration.

    In a reflection on her first visit to Israel during her stint as home secretary in 2014, May wrote that she was “reminded of the deadly threats the people of Israel face every day, with the terrible news that the bodies of three missing Israeli teenagers had been found.”

    Singling out the Hamas and Hezbollah terror groups, May said the “dangers that confront Israel remain considerable,” and pledged that the UK “must do everything we can to ensure [Israel’s] citizens feel safe and secure in their own country.”

    Addressing Britain’s Jewish community, May said she was determined to “stamp out injustices,” including anti-Semitism in the UK and boycotts of Israeli goods and events. She also expressed her pride in working with British Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and the cross-party UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation to “deliver our commitment” to a new National Holocaust Memorial and an associated learning center.

    “Britain would not be Britain without its Jews,” May wrote, wishing the community “Shanah Tovah” (Happy New Year) and a “happy, healthy and peaceful year ahead.”

    Apart from the fact that they are by far the most advanced country in the middle East by far and a world innovation powerhouse. Many of my colleagues who have been there told me the Chics there are quite hot as well, trust me. ;)

    Hmmm very pretty, if you look at the pictures the problem of israel becomes very apparent

    None of those chicks are Middle Eastern, they have just set up a colonial enterprise to usurp the land and oppress the local population

    Its why their will be continued chaos especially as the arab population grows

    Tired of hearing you saying the same thing over and over again. Tiring mate.:sick:........it's about time you urge your Muslim brothers ( you should also leave Britain and join them in the fight instead being a keyboard warrior.lol )from Iran to Hezbollah, to the Arabs to launch an invasion and destroy Israel once and for all.......getting boring hearing time and time again how there will be chaos in Israel and how the Arabs/muslims are going to destroy them bla bla bla.
    We need action not empty talks. Until then......:sleep:

    Its tough when they have superpower support

    Sometimes you need to bide your time, support BDS and keep supporting the Palestinians and keep the arab/muslim population growing in and around israel

    Pass on the resistance to israel to the children

    lol, alot of mizrahi jews are in key positions in current goverment and in the military, even netanyahu has sephardi origins, and alot of military chiefs are middle eastern jews.
    claiming that those who "rule" the country are ashkenazi jews is none sense.
    so before posting no sense, read the links I posted instead of throwing baseless accusations
