Board of Deputies of British Jews Senior Vice President Sheila Gewolb has condemned a decision by Gwynedd Council to describe Israeli policy in the West Bank as constituting “a war crime”.
Sheila said: “Motions like this do little to advance the cause of peace between Israelis and Palestinians, but often irresponsibly stir up tensions here in the UK. The Board of Deputies appreciates the Government’s recognition that responsible local government should have nothing to do with such grandstanding.”
