'This House believes that Zionism is a danger to the Jewish people'
- Cambridge Union debate
On 16th February the proposition that 'This House believes that
Zionism is a danger to the Jewish people' was narrowly carried in a
debate at the Cambridge Union. The speeches in favour of the
Proposition by Brian Klug, Daphna Baram and Richard Kuper are here. The
speakers against were Ned Temko, Daniel Shek (Bicom) and Jeremy Briar.
It provoked the most extrordinary response from Melanie Philips both
before the event [The Oxbridge sport of Jew-baiting, 14th Feb] and
after [The closing of (some) university minds, 20th Feb] and a
ferociously misleading report by Emanuele Ottolenghi entitled Jews
against Jews in the Jerusalem Post on 22nd Feb which licensed some
extraordinarily malicious talkback. Daphna Baram finally got a reply
Who really sets Jews against Jews? published in the Jerusalem Post
