MPs: War on Want's boycott guide "a handbook of hate"
As reported in the Jewish Chronicle on August 24, 2007, British MPs and Jewish leaders have condemned high-profile British charity, War on Want, for its promotion of a world-wide anti-Israel boycott. A document described as a guide for boycott, divestment and sanctions, appearing on the War on Want website and widely distributed, lays out a strategy for those planning sanctions against the Jewish state. British MPs have called on the UK Charity Commission to investigate the publication, which has been described as "a handbook of hate" by Jewish Leadership Council chief executive Jeremy Newmark. As reported previously by NGO Monitor, War on Want abuses its charitable status to promote an extreme anti-Israel agenda.
