Sir Gerald Kaufman.

Sir Gerald Kaufman was an extraordinary politician and whilst not agreeing with everything he said, he was a man of principle and one of the few parliamentarians who wasn’t frightened of the venomous Israeli lobby here in the UK.

He said ‘My Grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian Grandmothers in Gaza’.

The emotion is clear to see and despite his earlier pro Zionist tendencies, he could see that the sickening treatment of Palestinians at the hands of the Israelis was not only immoral but unsustainable.

RIP Sir Gerald Kaufman.
