As I should also have said...

In my haste, I forgot to include other good news on Israel from the JC. Professor Alan Johnson, BICOM Senior Research Fellow, has an excellent article in the JC (found here) in which he argues for the TUC to continue to retain links with the Histadrut. This is for good, internationalist, trade union reasons: Histadrut and the Palestinian equivalent have good relations and are working both for a two-state solution, as well as to advance pay and better working conditions for Palestinian workers.

You might also find Johnson's pamphlet on the same topic, but at greater length, also interesting.
