A video clip of United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, Liz Truss, went viral on social media in which she described herself as a “huge Zionist” and a “huge supporter of Israel.”
This came during a “Conservative Friends of Israel” (CFI) event, which Truss was a guest of honor of and was attending for the first time in her new capacity as Britain's Prime Minister.
“As you know I am a huge Zionist, I am a huge supporter of Israel, and I know that we can take the UK-Israel relationship from strength to strength,” she told the attendees who were cheering for her.
Additionally, she referred to “threats from authoritarian regimes who don’t believe in freedom and democracy,” against which “two free democracies, the UK and Israel, need to stand shoulder to shoulder.”
Notably, Truss’ position on the Israeli Occupation is well known as she promoted it during her campaign to become UK’s Prime Minister and the new Conservative leader.
