Mick ‘The Miner’ Davis Criticized Israel, Listed Most Powerful Jew In England

 

Glencore's $31 Billion Xstrata Takeover Approved in Final Vote

The Jewish Chronicle released its “Power 100” list of prominent Jews in England. Topping the list is Mick “the Miner” Davis, who angered many in the Jewish community by saying Israel is in danger of becoming an “apartheid state” over the Palestinian issue. Davis was born in South Africa and has donated large sums to Kew Garden Hills, the Tory party and the Royal Opera House. Prime Minister Cameron appointed Davis as head of the Holocaust Memorial Commission and has the top position at the Jewish Leadership Council. David made $121 million when the company he founded was taken over by Glencove.

Others on the list include Yoram Ottolenghi, a former IDF officer who introduces British audiences to Israeli cuisine, actress Maureen Lipman and although he is not Jewish, Prime Minister Cameron takes 15th place, because he “repeatedly expresses support for Israel and his determination to protect Jewish practices in his country.” In 8th place is Labour Leader Ed Miliband, who could become the first Jewish Prime Minister since Disraeli.
