Oxford Union debate on the right of Israel to exist

President of the Oxford Union
 
Dear Emily,
 
I am writing in protest to the debate this week at the Oxford Union on the right of Israel to exist. This very debate of course delegitimizes the State of Israel and the right for the Jewish people to have their own homeland, established by the UN in 1948, as other countries have a right to exist.
 
In addition, please could you justify the makeup of the debate which includes four known critics of Israel denying the possibility of having a single view that will actually genuinely defend Israel and speak in its best interest.
 
I am concerned that you are unaware of the consequences of such a debate and I would take the view that such an unbalanced debate on this subject not allowing for any proper defence should be considered an expression of anti-Semitism on your part and should be noted as such.
 
I look forward to your response.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Rabbi Eli Brackman
