It is commendable that the newly-elected Mayor of London Sadiq Khan stands for the rights of the Jews in case of any violations of their rights. Like many social and political activists, I also stand firmly for the rights of Jews and non-Jews, everywhere. But Mr Khan has not said anything about the rights of the Palestinians that have been violated by Israel since 1948!
Zionists had taken historic Palestine by using violence and terror and driven the Palestinians out of their land and forced many of them to take refuge in the neighbouring countries.
They are the long-suffering Palestinians still under Israeli occupation who need the political support of politicians and common people for an end to the brutal Israeli occupation and the restitution of their human rights as enshrined in the U.N. Charter. To do so is to stand for truth and justice; it won’t be against any community or group.
