Jonathan Hoffman started this petition to Helen Stephenson CBE (CEO Charity Commission)

Charity Commission Guidance Note CC9 says ‘a charity can campaign using emotive or controversial material, where this is lawful and justifiable in the context of the campaign. Such material must be factually accurate and have a legitimate evidence base.’

Amnesty International’s appalling vilification of Israel – published today - is entitled ‘Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians.

The title is an antisemitic lie and the document is shot through with antisemitism. In no way is this slander factually accurate.  It simply foments hate against Jews in the UK. The horrific hate which some of us saw when we counter-demonstrated in support of Israel in Whitehall last May.

A Charity has to act 'in the public interest'. Stoking antisemitism with lies about Israel and making context-free and one-sided analyses is obviously NOT in the public interest.

We call on the Charity Commission to revoke Amnesty’s charitable status.
