The UK-based Conservative Friends of Israel thanks outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his “unwavering support” in a statement released immediately after the scandal-ridden premier announced his resignation.
“Boris Johnson has been resolute in his support of the State of Israel and the UK’s Jewish community. From announcing legislation to tackle pernicious boycotts of Israel to proscribing the Hamas terror group in its entirety, Boris Johnson has stood up for Israel at every turn. The UK-Israel relationship is stronger than ever before and, under his leadership, the UK Government has opposed antisemitism in all its forms and wherever it occurs. His resounding victory over Jeremy Corbyn in 2019 was a pivotal moment in our country’s history and for the UK’s Jewish community,” CFI says.
