question time (chaired by david dimbleby) (with • human rights lawyer jen robinson, • conservative mp matt hancock, • labour mp diane abbott, • comedian and presenter simon evans, • green mp caroline lucas) includes…

Why does Labour have such problem with anti-semitism?”

in a question about anti-semitism, caroline lucas of the green party suddenly criticises israel

“I’m not anti-Israel, but I am sometimes very critical of the actions of the Israeli authorities – quite often the illegal actions of the Israeli authorities – in Palestine, and I do get very frustrated that often that isn’t called out: when there are, for example, more homes being built on the occupied territories, against UN laws, when there are housing being demolished, when the Wall is being built in a way that basically cuts Palestinian farmers off from their land.”
