CFI’s Parliamentary Chairman, Rt. Hon. Sir Eric Pickles MP, CFI’s Honorary President, Lord Stuart Polak CBE and CFI’s Executive Director, James Gurd said: “CFI would like to congratulate Theresa May on her confirmation as the UK’s new Prime Minister. Theresa is a long-standing friend of Israel and the UK’s Jewish community, with a proven track-record in combating anti-Semitism. This represents an exciting new chapter in the UK-Israel relationship and CFI looks forward to working with Theresa to further strengthen the relationship between the United Kingdom and Israel”.
