The National Jewish Assembly (NJA) is delighted to celebrate the latest success of its online speaker events, which attracted 249 attendees via Zoom. The event, held on Thursday, October 19th, focused on the critical topic of “Is Israel breaking international law?” and featured a panel of esteemed guest speakers.
In light of shifting opinions and unjust accusations concerning Israel’s conduct and adherence to international law, the NJA recognised the urgency of addressing these unfounded claims. The event was conceived to provide clarity and truth surrounding this important issue.
The panel of experts included Col Richard Kemp, Professor Avi Bell, and Natasha Hausdorff, all of whom possess profound expertise in the Laws of Warfare and International Law. These distinguished speakers presented a robust and compelling defence of Israel’s actions during Operation Iron Swords, leaving no room for doubt that Israel is operating firmly within the bounds of international law and the laws of warfare.
Gary Mond, Chairman of the National Jewish Assembly, expressed his deep gratitude and admiration for the guest speakers, stating, “We are immensely fortunate to have had Col Richard Kemp, Professor Avi Bell, and Natasha Hausdorff share their profound insights and expertise with our audience. Their presentations have effectively dismantled baseless accusations and reaffirmed Israel’s unwavering commitment to upholding international law.”
The event served as a crucial platform for the dissemination of accurate information and the dispelling of misconceptions. Attendees gained a comprehensive understanding of the legal framework governing Israel’s actions and the dedication to safeguarding the safety and security of its citizens.
The NJA remains dedicated to its mission of fostering understanding and promoting dialogue on issues of importance to the Jewish community and beyond. As an organisation committed to truth and accuracy, the NJA will continue to provide opportunities for informed discussions and expert insights on vital matters.
