Planned British embassy move protested

Pro-Palestinian groups want to stop the British government from moving its Israel embassy to property owned by Lev Leviev.

The groups are lobbying the Foreign Office to quash the proposed move to the Kirya Tower in Tel Aviv, noting Leviev’s involvement with the settlement movement, according to a report last weekend in The Independent.

Similar lobbying recently led UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, to sever ties with Leviev, a major New York-based philanthropist.
