Prominent Jewish critic of Israel comes to Frome this month
Frome Friends of Palestine in UK are delighted to announce that Diana Neslen, a member of the Executive of Jews for Justice for Palestinians, has agreed to come and talk in Frome on January 19.
Her theme is “Dissonance: Jewish challenges to Israel’s Policies” – a look at the growing Jewish criticism of Israel from all around the world, and how accusations of anti-Semitism are used to silence criticism of Israel.
“I grew up in apartheid South Africa and was a committed member of a Zionist youth group”, says Diana. “I remained attached to Israel until the war of 1967, when I finally realised that I could not support what Israel was doing.” She has been active in Jews for Justice for Palestinians since its inception in 2002.
Thursday January 19, 7.30. Admission £4, at the United Reformed Church, Whittox Lane, Frome. Free parking in the Cork Street car park (postcode BA11 3JB), just three minutes’ walk away.
