The Bubble had the honour of hosting Michael Freeman: Counsellor for Civil Society Affairs at Embassy of Israel. With Britain so inward looking, it is imperative to have a more international perspective. I urge you with the upcoming election coming up on the 9th of April in Israel, and tensions heightening, to read about the conflict and its discrepancies.
Israel is the most politically contentious, internationally contested, and yet extraordinary region in the world. Spending only a week there, I realised just how skewed the Western media portrayal of the Middle East is. There are complexities and differences of opinions within pockets of consensus. The ruling of the region continues to be dictated by the 1967 Six-Day War; and Israel needs urgent change.
