UK Jews and Unity at Any Cost

The list of 50 Most Influential Jews published by The Jerusalem Post included Marie van der Zyl, the recently elected president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews. Van der Zyl is a feisty, committed Zionist and has followed in the path of her predecessor Jonathan Arkush in publicly confronting and condemning the antisemitism and vile behavior of Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

But having said that, she seems to have lost her bearings earlier this year in the wake of the provocative demonstration in Parliament Square by about 50 young protestors who, having the chutzpah to describe themselves as “Zionists,” recited kaddish for Palestinians killed as they sought to break into Israel with murderous intent, many of whom were proudly identified as terrorists.

This demonstration received massive media coverage. Not surprisingly, most British Jews were outraged and ashamed, and many expressed angry sentiments, including some vulgar outbursts.

To her credit, van der Zyl immediately condemned the demonstrators’ behavior. In fact, she has consistently defended Israel’s defensive measures against Hamas and other terrorists.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
