Ed Miliband: Boycotts of Israel will never be a way of advancing the cause of peace

“[My] commitment is to work fervently for peace and a two-state solution – a secure Israel alongside a viable and independent Palestinian state.”

“A Labour Government I lead will defend Israel’s right to uphold the security and safety of its own citizens. No community should have to live in constant fear – whether from rockets, terror tunnels or suicide bombers. But, ultimately, only a return to meaningful negotiations will bring lasting peace.”

“Boycotts of Israel will never be a way of advancing the cause of peace. They are the wrong response and I will never support them. Labour will continue to resolutely oppose the isolation of Israel. The answer has to be greater dialogue and greater engagement rather than disengagement and boycotts.” (Labour leader Ed Miliband writing for the Jewish News, 30/04/2015)
