Israel’s defence minister was in London this week, urging British Jews to take a lead role in the “battle of public opinion” on Israel and the Middle East.

Speaking in front of a 100-strong audience at the Pillar Hotel on Thursday night, Avigdor Lieberman urged the UK community to argue for Israel.
Being interviewed by Alan Mendoza of think tank, the Henry Jackson Society during an event hosted by JNF UK, Lieberman said : “One of the major battles is about public opinion. We need the support of the Jewish communities in this field, especially in the UK. In my hotel, I opened my TV, and I saw that there were more Arabic channels than English channels. I was shocked.” He said “Your support is very very crucial.”
