Jul 30, 2021 by

by Tali Feinberg, South African Jewish Report: “What do you do when the leadership of an organisation you’ve spent your whole working life serving adopts a policy or position that your conscience won’t tolerate?” asks Reverend John Atkinson.

Jun 2, 2021 by

by Rakib Ehsan, spiked: Jew hate has been allowed to fester among the poorly integrated sections of Britain’s Muslim communities.
