Israeli envoy: UK has become hotbed of radical anti-Israeli views

Britain has become a hotbed of radical anti-Israeli views, Israel's ambassador to the country, Ron Prosor, said in an opinion piece for Tuesday's Daily Telegraph newspaper. "Israel faces an intensified campaign of delegitimization, demonization and double standards," he said. "Britain has become a hotbed for radical anti-Israeli views and a haven for disingenuous calls for a one-state solution, a euphemistic name for a movement advocating Israel's destruction," continued the Israeli envoy. Prosor, who took up his post in November, said Britain was once admired for fairness and decency but the debate on Israel has now been hijacked by extremists.
