On Saturday 14th January 2017 Inminds human rights group undertook a guerilla projection on the walls of the Palace of Westminster, the seat of the British government, to protest at attempts by the government to sweep under the rug recent revelations by Al-Jazeera of an Israeli embassy plot to take down a British Minister for his opposition to illegal Israeli settlements.
Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "We are shocked that the British government is trying to cover up the scandal revealed by the Al-Jazeera investigative team, of the Israeli embassy plotting to take down Ministers in the British Government and Israel creating and controlling 'pro-Israel' lobby groups in the British Parliament and the student movement. The foreign minister Boris Johnson, has said the matter is 'closed'. We are here to tell him its not closed! We demand a full public inquiry! For British civil servants and MPs to plot with a foreign power - Israel, to take down a Minister in the government is an act of treason. MPs are elected to work for the British people, not for Israel through its shady lobbies. MI5 clearly define this interference in British democracy by the Israel embassy as espionage, so why has no action been taken? We demand that the Israeli embassy - Israel's spynest - be closed down and Israel's envoy Regev deported."
