Have your say

A Belfast rabbi who has been targeted with hate-crime abuse has challenged Newry and Mourne District Council over its support for a boycott of Israeli goods.

There was controversy earlier this month when Newry and Mourne mayor, Sinn Fein councillor Daire Hughes, wrote to traders in the district asking them not to stock Israeli goods, in light of the conflict in Gaza.

He also asked them to provide a list of products they stocked from Israel to assist the boycott.
