Oliver Kamm was also at the recent meeting at the Royal Society of the Arts. He writes about it in his Times blog. He doesn’t have a very high opinion of Martin Linton.
Someone else not to be taken seriously, I discover, is Martin Linton MP, who recalled that the first President Bush had withdrawn loans to Israel. Bush did no such thing: Linton is confused between the concepts of a loan and a loan guarantee. The George H.W. Bush administration in any case did not withdraw loan guarantees from Israel but made them conditional on cessation of West Bank settlement.
