The ZCC is proud to support the Zionist Federation's Emergency Rally for Israel in London this sunday.
After days of attacks from Gaza, now is the time for the community to come out and show its support for Israel and her right to self defence. Hamas were offered ‘quiet for quiet’ – instead, they responded with hundreds of missiles aimed at civilians. From Sderot to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv to Haifa, no part of the country has been left unaffected as families from all walks of life have been forced to live with the constant fear of the next warning siren.
This Sunday, 20 July, the ZF will be holding a solidarity rally to show their support for Israel and the right to self defence against terrorism. The ZF welcome everyone, irrespective of political or religious background, to stand with Israel at this time.
Join the ZF outside the Israeli Embassy as we say: Yes to Peace – No to Terror.
Location: 2 Palace Green, London W8 4QB (nearest tube, High St Kensington)

Write to your MP and tell them to support Israel in the face of terrorrism:
Dear ZCC supporter
We know that anti-Israel activists in the UK have launched a letter-writing campaign to MPs attempting to blame Israel for violence that has been initiated and escalated by Hamas, who have rebuffed Israel’s efforts to call a ceasefire, and to accuse Israel of “collective punishment” of Palestinians.
We are therefore asking you to email your own MP and, preferably using your own words, make the following points:
“Dear [insert name of MP],
I am writing as one of your constituents to express my support for Israel’s right to take military action to defend its civilians from Hamas terrorist rocket attacks from Gaza.
Israel is engaged in a rightful act of self-defence. It is a taking every step possible to minimise civilian casualties. The goals are limited and defensive: to safeguard the civilians of Israel from rocket fire by crippling the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza and to restore Israel’s deterrent against future attacks.
No state can accept a situation in which its civilians are threatened by rockets fired indiscriminately against civilian areas. With normal life for Israeli civilians deteriorating rapidly, Israel has been forced to act.
It is clear that Hamas should not have been allowed to join the Palestinian Authority’s “Unity Government” as they continue to pursue terrorism rather than peace. The UK and EU were misguided in welcoming the formation of this government and should now call for Hamas to be removed from it.
I hope you will use your voice as my MP to show appropriate support for Israel in the face of terrorism. Please let me know if you agree with my stance on this issue. I would also ask you to let Foreign Office Ministers know my views.
