A group of active reserve duty IDF soldiers are flying to the UK this summer to share their testimony in parliament with MPs.

The event, hosted by the MP Ian Austin in the Palace of Westminster on June 11, is part of a campaign on the dilemmas faced by Israeli soldiers on the ground.

Organised by the Israel Britain Alliance and the organisation “My Truth”, the event will include opportunities for parliamentarians to put questions to soldiers.

Former Labour MP Michael McCann is currently the director of Israel Britain Alliance and has been involved in organising the event.

“If you study any debate in the House of Commons that reacts to violence between Israel and the Palestinians it becomes apparent that some MPs seek to draw moral equivalence between the IDF and the terrorists,” McCann said.

“There is no equivalence.

“I can think of no other conflict on the planet where elected politicians are so unwilling to criticise terrorists.”
