Palestine has lost a staunch friend and defenderFeb. 27, 2017, midnight
It is with great sorrow that we hear of the passing of Sir Gerald Kaufman. A man of integrity and principle, he was dedicated campaigner for social justice for his constituents, for Britain and the world. He was a true friend of Palestine in his unreserved criticism of Israel in its treatment of the Palestinians.
He will be missed as a courageous voice for truth and justice for the Palestinian cause and for Palestinian human rights under Israeli occupation.
Our thoughts and wishes are with his family at this sad time.
