Britain’s Pro-Israel Pivot

Since the passage of a disastrous anti-Israel resolution at the U.N. last December, Great Britain has made an effort to show that world that it’s changing its tune on Israel – and the JerusalemPost applauds the change:

The Brits’ pivot toward Israel might be partly the result of a realization that both countries face similar challenges – while Israel faces Palestinian terrorism, the British are coping with a growing Muslim population that includes many who reject western culture and values and even a small percentage that advocates violence and terrorism. It might also be connected to a perceived change in the US’s relations with Israel under the Trump administration.

Whatever the cause, since the passage of Resolution 2334, Britain, under the leadership of May, has made a concerted effort to make it clear that its December vote does not accurately reflect the British stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
