Is the British Government Going to Allow a Foreign State to Threaten its Citizens?

Media reports about the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) being "designated" by Israel have come sooner than expected. They follow closely on the heels of the two besmirched reports written in Israel which described London as the global hub of "delegitimization" of the Zionist state. The media cite Israeli claims that the PRC is an arm of Hamas and is engaged in "violent activities"; this is a British registered company operated by British citizens being threatened by Israel and its supporters, remember. This takes on a deeper meaning when we consider that the theses of the two "independent" reports have been supported and adopted by Israel's Ministry of Defence.

This has to be a matter of grave concern and the British government should act decisively to protect its citizens and civil society bodies, enabling them to go about their lawful business in a peaceful and democratic manner within the framework of the law. Such official action is essential, especially after the Israeli secret services used fake British passports to murder a political opponent in Dubai almost a year ago. Indeed, the activities of all those linked to the two reports which have come out of Israel should be monitored very closely.'
