How Annexation Is Threatening Jewish Support for Israel in the UK And US
Date and time: Wednesday, September 16, 2020, 6:30 noon to 7:30 pm British Summer Time (UTC+1)
In this webinar, Robert Cohen, a long-standing Jewish writer on Israel/Palestine, will chart for us the last few months of Jewish dissent.
The prospect of Israeli annexation of parts of the West Bank has galvanized Jewish criticism of Israel.
While some opponents fear for Israel’s ability to remain Jewish and Democratic, and the end of the two-state solution, others are voicing more fundamental criticism of what Zionism has turned out to mean in practice.
While still a minority, Jewish critics of Israel are growing in confidence and influence in the United States and the UK. Robert Cohen will discuss Jewish dissent including that from Peter Beinart in the US, Progressive rabbis in the UK and the criticism the Board of Deputies has received for its “vow of silence” on annexation.
