Revealed: Emails undermine Mira Bar-Hillel's smear of UK Jewish community

In an interview on BBC Radio 4 last month, Mira Bar-Hillel (journalist for the London Evening Standard and commentator for The Independent) claimed that British Jews don’t criticize Israeli actions in Gaza out of fear of being “ex-communicated” from the Jewish community, and specifically claimed that such dissenting Jews would be denied entry to synagogues and denied the right of Jewish burial.
She of course didn’t offer any proof to substantiate these wild accusations.
CiF Watch subsequently obtained an email exchange in which Ms. Bar-Hillel was challenged by Simon Hochhauser, former President of the UK’s largest synagogue body, the United Synagogue, to back up her assertions about the British Jewish community.

As we suspected, Mira Bar-Hillel’s shameful smear of the British Jewish community on BBC Radio was based on absolutely no evidence.
