The National Jewish Assembly (NJA) proudly commends Israeli Ambassador to the UK, Tzipi Hotovely, for her recent interview on Sky News. Ambassador Hotovely’s articulate and resolute stance in presenting Israel’s right to self-defence, explaining the necessity of the Israeli counter-offensive against Hamas, and emphasising that “it is time for Hamas to pay the price” has resonated with audiences worldwide.
In her interview, Ambassador Hotovely addressed an extremely challenging and emotionally charged subject matter, namely, Hamas’ deliberate targeting of innocent Israeli civilians, including the heartbreaking loss of innocent lives, including infants. Her poise, composure, and unwavering commitment to truth were evident throughout the interview.
The NJA recognises the importance of diplomats like Ambassador Hotovely who can effectively convey the realities faced by Israel in the context of ongoing conflict. Her clear and compelling articulation of Israel’s right to self-defence underscores the moral imperative that nations have to protect their citizens and secure their borders against terrorist threats.
The interview was led by Sky News presenter Kay Burley, who showed little empathy for the horrific situation that Ambassador Hotovely was describing.
Ambassador Hotovely’s interview highlighted the gravity of the situation in the Middle East and the need for international attention and action. Her words resonated not only with supporters of Israel but also with those who seek a just and peaceful resolution to the conflicts in the region.
As an organisation committed to promoting understanding and dialogue, the NJA acknowledges the significance of Ambassador Hotovely’s efforts to engage with the international community and convey Israel’s perspective on the current crisis. Her dedication to diplomacy, her command of multiple languages, including Hebrew, English, and others, has been an invaluable asset in representing Israel’s interests on the global stage.
The National Jewish Assembly commends Ambassador Tzipi Hotovely for her exemplary representation of Israel and her unwavering commitment to truth, justice, and peace in the region. We stand in solidarity with the people of Israel and express our heartfelt gratitude to Ambassador Hotovely for her tireless efforts in advancing the cause of peace and security.
