Israel ‘friends’ prevent attempt to close M&S

ISRAEL supporters were out in force on Saturday to prevent a demonstration closing the Marks & Spencer store in Manchester city centre.

“We had to stop Manchester Palestinian Solidarity Campaign from closing M&S because they see it as a Jewish shop,” said North West Friends of Israel co-chairman Raphi Bloom.

“And we succeeded.”

He added: “We came to engage with the public and share the huge amount of common democratic values Israel has with the UK.

“This was overwhelmingly well received.

“It was a hugely positive day for Israel and our community.

“When the other side showed up they were abusing us for wearing poppies while they carried placards of terrorists with AK-47 guns.

“People were disgusted.”
