We Believe in Israel’s core values commit us as an organisation to support Israel as a democratic and Jewish state and that “We believe that the vibrancy of Israel’s democracy and internal debate is one of its sources of strength”. They also state that “We recognise and respect that some supporters of Israel will want to express legitimate criticism of specific Israeli policies.”
Our role is to bring together all supporters of Israel in the UK, across the political spectrum. As such we celebrate Israel as a state.
We approach the current debate within Israel about constitutional and judicial reform with those core values and objectives guiding our thinking.
We are proud that Israel is approaching its 75th birthday having sustained a liberal, pluralistic, democratic political culture and the rule of law throughout its existence, despite incredible external pressures.
We do not support any moves which would erode Israel’s democratic norms or the pluralism and liberalism of Israeli society.
