Israeli Ambassador Tzipi Hotovely rushed out of event at LSE as protesters swarm her car

Several senior members of the British Jewish community hit out at her appointment as Ambassador including Labour peer Lord Beecham, who stated: "The appointment of an ultra-right-wing ambassador, while typical of the present government of Israel, will do nothing to win friends in the UK - or indeed any other reasonable country."

At her first event as an ambassador with the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Hotovely described the Nakba - the displacement and ongoing persecution of Palestinians - as an "Arab lie".

Jewish Conservative youth group protests Hotovely with 'Occupation' event | JPost - Apr. 21, 2021 |

The UK Conservative Movement (Masorti) invited Israeli Ambassador to London Tzipi Hotovely to speak. Noam, an independent Masorti UK-based youth movement, will host its own protest event in response, "The Occupation: What is it and what is our role as British Jews?" on Wednesday.

"Throughout her career, Hotovely has made many racist and inflammatory statements," the movement wrote in a Facebook post, explaining its reasoning for protesting the event and hosting a counter one instead.

....
The movement claims that she "has consistently refused to recognise Palestinian heritage, referring to the Palestinians as `thieves of history', going on to say that their "history books are empty, and [they] are trying to co-opt Jewish history and Islamicize it".
