Glasgow Friends of Israel has been established to advocate for Peace for both the Israeli and Palestinian people. As it will not be possible to have Peace for just one side, supporters and activists work for a secure and lasting Peace for both peoples.
GFI is not a religious organisation and is supported by Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus and people of other religions and none.
All are welcome

"One of the signers they chose to highlight is Richard Falk.
Richard Falk was asked to resign from Human Rights Watch itself in 2012 after it was revealed that he entertained 9/11 conspiracy theories, posted antisemitic cartoons, compared Israel multiple times to Nazi Germany and Palestinian suffering to the Holocaust, excused and justified terrorism against Jews and Americans (suggesting, for example, that the US was ultimately responsible for the Boston Marathon terror attack), and acted as an apologist for terror groups saying that their actions were legal."
And we recall very well that Mick Napier, twice convicted, venomous leader of the antisemitic, Holocaust denying Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign (SPSC) hosted Falk and accompanied him on a speaking tour of Scotland a few years ago.
A right couple of nasty individuals. We'd forgotten about Falk until this article and happily, Napier is all but forgotten too.

And how many intellectuals,artists,academics supported the nazis ? Irrelevant what they say
Israel doesn't have a regime of apartheid. Her Arab neighbors do . Israel isn't a regime. It's a democracy with duly elected representatives. One fifth or 20% of Israel's population are Arab citizens. That's nearly 2 million out of the population . Gaza & Ramallah prohibited Jews from entering their territory . That's apartheid . The 600 academics , artists and intellectuals from 45 different countries don't know what they're talking about.They have been indoctrinated by pro Palestinian anti zionist lies, historical falsifications and propaganda. The reverse of what they declared is what is needed.They need to call on the govts.of Gaza and Ramallah to dismantle their regimes of terrorism, apartheid , occupation and colonialism in the holy land.
