US Embassy Demonstrations

Antisemitism is wrong and any hostility directed to the Jewish community is completely unacceptable. I will always stand up for the rights of Jewish people to live their lives in accordance with their religious beliefs and to do so free from intimidation or prejudice.

The Prime Minister has been clear that President Trump's remarks regarding moving the US embassy to Jerusalem and recognising the city as the Israeli capital are unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region. The status of Jerusalem should be determined in a negotiated settlement and as you mention this should be done in a calm and reasonable way.

I fully support the two-state solution with a state of Israel as the Jewish homeland. After centuries of persecution it is right and proper that the Jewish people have a country to call their own.
