My speech on countering delegitimization @ ‘Big Tent for Zionism’ conference: Manchester, Nov. 27

Here’s a clip of my presentation at a session I participated in at the Big Tent for Zionism‘ conference in Manchester (November 27, 2011) on countering delegitimization in the media.

The conference was an enormous success, by any standard, for the organisers, the Manchester Jewish community and the inspiration behind the event, Rabbi Jonathan Guttentag.

More than 700 people attended the event aimed at encouraging  grass-roots advocacy and activism to counter the delegitimisation of Israel in the UK.

Israel’s Ambassador to the UK, H.E. Daniel Taub, was the keynote speaker and – as if briefed by CiF Watch before his speech! – called out the Guardian’s Deborah Orr for opprobrium as an especially egregious example of journalists who, abandoning any claim to objectivity, employ antisemitic tropes in the service of undermining the Jewish state’s right to exist. 

Participants at the panel discussion included Jonathan HoffmanRichard Millett, and Richard Gold.
