You can’t claim to be passionate about fighting antisemitism and at the same time turn a blind eye to the reasons why Israel had to take over the West Bank and Gaza in a defensive war. And what will happen if the Palestinians get their state — what is to stop the antisemites of Hamas taking over and lobbing missiles at Ben Gurion airport. Mouthing trendy platitudes about the brutality of the Israeli occupation may earn you dinner party invitations in Islington, but your opinions are worthless if you do not know the history and context of the issue.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
