Brits Turn Their Backs on Israel Boycotts – Justin Cohen (Jewish News-UK)
A Populus opinion poll commissioned by BICOM shows that 51% of respondents “do not boycott Israeli goods,” an 8% rise compared to a poll in October 2015.
Similarly, 56% thought Israel boycotts “hurt both Palestinians and Israelis” – 9% more than in 2015.
“The British sense of fair play is a clear theme in the poll as time and again respondents reject singling out Israel, given everything else going on in the world,” said BICOM chief executive James Sorene.
43% said they agreed with Britain’s then-foreign secretary Lord Balfour, who wrote in support of a Jewish homeland in historic Palestine in 1917, up from 40% last year.
57% felt that Israel was Britain’s ally, the highest percentage for any Middle Eastern country and 5% more than in 2015.
