Sign the October Declaration
We must stand in solidarity with Israelis and Jews.
spiked is proud to support the October Declaration, standing in solidarity with Israelis and Jews and against anti-Semitic barbarism.
The declaration, signed by more than 200 people, including Tom Stoppard, Maureen Lipman and Richard Dawkins, unequivocally condemns Hamas’s pogrom in Israel on 7 October, calls for all the hostages to be released immediately, and pledges to stand with British Jews against a sickening rise in anti-Semitism on our streets since the atrocities in Israel occurred. Brendan O’Neill and I are among the signatories.
‘We share the shock and distress of Israelis, British Jews and compassionate people around the world at the unfolding horror and its consequences’, the declaration reads. ‘British Jews should not live in fear because of actions taken by the state of Israel to defend itself. The British state must do everything in its power to protect them.’
‘No one thought this would be necessary in the 21st century but, sadly, it is’, it concludes. Indeed. Please read, sign and share the October Declaration here.
