A Royal Blessing: Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister Boris Johnson Show Their Support for Israel

It is no secret that the United Kingdom has a long-standing and enduring relationship with Israel. This connection between the two nations was further solidified in the Queen’s Speech on Tuesday, which included legislation to prevent UK local governments from boycotting Israeli products or services. This was backed up by an amendment to the Public Service Pensions Bill earlier this year, which attempted to stop public bodies from divesting pension fund holdings in Israeli companies.

These measures have been warmly welcomed by the Simon Wiesenthal Centre and Conservative Friends of Israel, who expressed their sincere gratitude towards Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister Boris Johnson for showing deep support for Israel and its Jewish community. The move is seen as particularly significant given that it follows from recent discouraging events in the Middle East, including increased hostility between Israel and Palestine and continued conflict in some areas.

The new legislation reaffirms Britain’s commitment to standing by Israel through thick and thin, regardless of what happens in neighboring regions. It also signals that any attempts at boycotting Israeli goods or services will be strongly discouraged, sending out a firm and clear message to those who might consider such action. Such measures echo speeches made by both Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister Boris Johnson in recent years; both figures have publicly expressed their admiration for Israel as a nation while offering words of sympathy for its Jewish citizens living under difficult circumstances.

The actions of both Britain’s head of state and its Prime Minister demonstrate mutual respect between the two countries that goes beyond politics; it is an indication of shared values rooted in centuries-old historical ties between Britain and the State of Israel. And although ultimately these measures are symbolic, they offer a ray of hope to people on both sides who are keen to see peace prevail throughout the region.

In light of all this, let us take a moment to reflect on the tremendous effort shown by British officials in working towards stronger relations with Israel while continuing to champion freedom, justice, and human rights – not only within our own country but around the world as well. Let us remember too that despite differences we might have with one another we can still come together as allies when necessary; perhaps then we can start looking towards a brighter future for everyone involved.
