The Zionist Federation has announced that it will be organising a counter demonstration outside the Royal Albert Hall in support of the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance as part of the BBC Proms.
While other groups will be protesting outside the Hall and calling for boycotts and chanting words of hatred, Israel will be represented inside the Hall by music and culture. We believe it is vital that stand up for the only democracy in the Middle East and are calling on everyone to support the IPO.
The Zionist Federation will be demonstrating between 6pm and 8pm on Thursday 1st September and are proud that Israel is represented at the Proms by such a wonderful orchestra.

18th August 2011

The Zionist Federation is shocked and saddened at the news of the terror attacks that have been carried out in Southern Israel today, including on an Egged bus near Eilat. As we wait to learn the full extent of the casualties we can only hope and pray that it is as low as possible.

We call on the Palestinian Authority to condemn this terrorist attack on innocent civilians in the strongest possible terms.

Zionist Federation Chairman, Harvey Rose, stated, “This cowardly attack once again shows the constant threat of terrorism that Israel faces. My thoughts are with the family and friends of those hurt and killed.”

The events of this morning have highlighted, once again, the need to find a long term and secure solution that will bring peace to both Israel and the Palestinians. A negotiated solution must be found and unilateral acts by the Palestinian Authority only hinder the possibility of finding a mutually acceptable agreement that must include the acceptance of Israel as a Jewish State.

The Zionist Federation have spokespeople available for comment and analysis.
