    Dear Jane, I don't mean to imply that this is what all Jewish Brits think or feel, but certainly the Sunday Times cartoon caused a far bigger reaction (as I outline in the above article) than we had seen in recent years. I appreciate that only a small self-selecting % of the community come to CST (or others) on such issues. On the question of my own feelings regarding Israeli politics and conflicts I regret that my position at CST prevents me from speaking plainly on such issues. I do not, however, subscribe to the view that left-liberal protest against Israeli policies is primarily, or somehow subconsciously, motivated by antisemitism. (Which is not to say that such protest cannot lead to the adoption of positions and attitudes that are really hostile to mainstream Jewish attitudes and concerns: but that's a very long and complex subject. Similarly, I do worry that a lot of anti-Israel protest very quickly ends up with older antisemitic modes of thinking - such as UK Jews having some kind of weird grip on UK media & politicians.)
