Israeli NGO presses British voters to approve Brexit


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli nongovernmental organization that advocates for the settlements is pressing British voters to vote to leave the European Union.

The push for Brexit, or a British exit from the EU, is meant to punish Britain for its move toward a pro-Palestinian stand, Meir Deutsch, director of policy and government relations for Regavim, told The Times of Israel. The campaign targets dual British-Israeli citizens planning to vote Thursday on the Brexit referendum.

Regavim’s pro-Brexit campaign includes a parody video of a masked Palestinian Hamas terrorist from Gaza calling on British citizens to remain in the European Union because it supports the Palestinians. The video explains┬áthat the European Union is a major funder of Palestinian infrastructure in the West Bank.
