The Jewish Telegraph reported that the city council of Bolton, in greater Manchester, canceled a planned event last weekend marking the U.N.-designated international Holocaust memorial day.
The city has marked the Holocaust for the past three years. Instead, in line with the policy of the Muslim Council of Britain, which rejects the memorial day, the city will have a Genocide Day in June that also will mark supposed “ongoing genocide and human rights abuses of Palestinians” by Israelis. — JTA
They’ll probably have a Genocide Day picnic too.
