We carry below a statement we were sent via our colleagues in Jewish Voice for a Just Peace – Ireland, regarding comments made my Northern Ireland First Minister Arlene Foster and Gary Middleton MLA concerning the historic decision by Derry City and Strabane District Council to support the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement aimed at pressuring Israel into ending its occupation of Palestine and fulfilling its obligations under international law. We agree with JVJPI that seeking to essentialise Jewish thought, experience and action into something that is inherently not just associated with, but homogeneously supportive of, the state … Continue reading

There was a large group of Palestinians who came to the Derry marathon last year and it was a massive success so we find it inexplicable that the immigration service … Continue reading
