Sir Mick Davis Comments on the Recent Spate Of Violence in Israel

"The violence and bloodshed on the streets of Israel effects the entire UK Jewish community. Our hearts go out to the innocent victims and our thoughts are with the families and loved ones of those who have suffered. We call on leaders to lead and take bold and courageous steps to dampen tension, restore calm and promote progress towards peace. Now is the time in particular for President Abbas to stand up and condemn this violence and take proper steps to bring it to an end."
