British Guilty of Disguised Anti-Semitism, Israeli Minister Tells The Telegraph

| |

Israel’s Strategic Affairs minister Yuval Steinitz has expressed concern over recent British hostility towards Israel in media coverage, boycott campaigns and official British policy, telling U.K.’s The Daily Telegraph that he sees such actions as “some kind of disguised anti-Semitism.”

In the interview with newspaper, when asked about the current relationship between Britain and Israel, Steinitz said: “It’s difficult to say. Traditionally we had good relations with Britain and currently we have good intelligence cooperation with Britain and it’s very successful.”

Steinitz also voiced his disappointment at Professor Stephen Hawking, the well-known British physicist, who announced last month that he would not be attending an academic conference hosted by President Shimon Peres.
