British Home Secretary: Israel's existence vital for all civilisation
After writing a few pieces about some parts of British society's anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, it is refreshing to learn that the government does not share these views.
British Home Secretary Charles Clarke this week told a major Jewish communal gathering in London that the existence of Israel is critical to the whole of civilisation. Clarke said: "When you talk about communal security, critically important for all of us to assert the right of the State of Israel to exist, the importance for the whole of our civilisation that the State of Israel should exist against all threats from wherever they may come."
