Walter Says: There are one or two conferences or symposia in Jerusalem almost every week. They discuss anything from medical matters to relations with Diaspora Jewry, politics and even climate change. Most are ‘talking shops’ without the means to change anything, except to make us aware of the problems surrounding those subjects which of course is helpful.
But: There is also Shurat Hadin, The Law Centre and its annual conference with a big difference.
One took place last week where that important organisation could point to a string of successes countering attempts at anti-Semitic actions and also very importantly the activities of international BDS groups.
Today: The largest part of this programme details some of the successes of Shurat Hadin, their extraordinary work as discussed in their annual conference attended by former Commonwealth Prime Ministers, former US Senator, Israeli Ministers, world renowned international Lawyers, military leaders with several extracts from the speeches.
Also: A report from the most deplorable action of a Government body.
And: Good news for some Holocaust survivors.
