Remembering Jason Silver BDE who took his own life on 4 February 2018. He had been thrown out of Palexpo the previous July for nothing more than wearing a kipa (Jewish head covering). A suicide note mentioned his frustration with the CPS and with the Mail, for failing to publish his letter protesting at his eviction from Palexpo. “Maybe my death will help to bring attention to antisemitism” he wrote.


The second PalExpo is scheduled for 6/7 July at Olympia London. It is organised by the extremist-supporting Friends of Al Aqsa. At least 37 of the speakers have a record of antisemitism or support for BDS or other demonisation of Israel.

The event will feature ‘Interactive Installations’ including:

• BDS: Have a go at knocking down apartheid in a game of BDS bowling.

• Education: what obstacles will you face on your journey to school? Walk towards the oversized book to find out.

• Child prisoners: See what state a child’s bedroom is left in after Israeli troops arrest them during a night raid.

• Water: Fill up the buckets and watch the scale tip when measuring water disparity between Israel & Palestine.

• Checkpoints: Walk with the most vulnerable Palestinians who pass through checkpoints daily. Will you be able to answer their questions?

• Apartheid wall: See how you interact with your family during a meal with the Apartheid wall cutting through the dinner table. A symbol of how families are separated by the wall. [The cartoon on this petition is on the PalExpo website]

• Settlements: 3D settlements placed on the disappearing maps will show you the density and increase of Israeli settlements over time.

• Sport in Palestine: Score some goals and have a kick about in the football area where you can learn how occupation restricts the beautiful game.

• A&E in Gaza: Feeling unwell? Visit doctors in the Gaza hospital and see the difference in treatment Palestinians receive.

• UN tent: Hear personal stories from three generations on the impact of the Nakba and importance of the Right to Return. Set in a 1948 UN tent.

The event is over a weekend and has been organised with children in mind. The children who go will be brainwashed to hate Israel and Jews.
