Government may face legal action over building of Westminster Shoah memorial
The British Government is facing legal action over its decision to build a national Holocaust memorial and learning centre in a Royal Park next to Parliament.

Proposed design of Westminster Holocaust Memorial in Victoria Tower Gardens
The government is facing legal action over its decision to build a national Holocaust memorial and learning centre in a Royal Park next to Parliament.
 
Secretary of State of Homes, Communities and Local Government Robert Jenrick MP is being challenged by the London Historic Parks and Gardens Trust over the process leading to a decision to build in Victoria Tower Gardens, beside the River Thames.
 
 
Jenrick’s department sought planning permission in January 2019 after former Prime Minister David Cameron’s Holocaust Commission, led by former Jewish Leadership Council chair Sir Mick Davis, recommended a national memorial somewhere central.

However a raft of heritage and environmental experts have warned that the damage and congestion that it could cause would outweigh the public benefit.
 
The Trust has played a leading role objecting to plans to build the memorial on “the last piece of publicly accessible land in central London”. The gardens are Grade II listed, sit alongside the Grade I listed Palace of Westminster, and lie partly within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the world-famous Westminster Abbey.
 
Working with other campaign groups, including Save Victoria Tower Gardens and the Thorney Island Society, the Trust has argued that ministers should reconsider the memorial’s location, citing the “undesirable impact” of the chosen design.
 
A planning decision was due to be taken by Westminster Council, which said it was minded not to grant permission, until Jenrick’s department stepped in and took over.
 
Successive prime ministers, including Theresa May, has maintained that the memorial will be built in Victoria Towers Gardens, and the current Conservative Government even made support for the memorial a manifesto commitment.
 
Last month lawyers acting for the Trust argued that the environmental impact of the proposals, which could cause great damage to the root systems of the Park’s 180-year old plane trees, was not carrying sufficient weight in forthcoming call-in inquiry, which is scheduled to begin on 6 October.
 
“The Trust contends that the proposals… represent an exceptionally serious intrusion into a very important green public open space,” argued its lawyers.
 
“The Trust has made clear that that it regards a new Holocaust Memorial with Learning Centre is a good idea, but that Victoria Tower Gardens is the wrong place for what is now proposed. This view is shared with many other objectors, including Westminster City Council and Baroness Ruth Deech.”
 
Deech is one of several Jewish peers to have expressed her objections to the memorial proposals, arguing that the £100 million should be spent on Holocaust education instead.
 
While lawyers for the Trust do not object to the call-in, they have called for a Judicial Review, and the case will be heard by Mr Justice Holgate at the High Court of Justice, Queen’s Bench Division.

Shalom friends,
Those who appreciate the miracle of Israel’s existence as a Jewish state are often nostalgic for the simplicity of this small country as it grew and blossomed in every way. Unfortunately, youth today take Israel’s existence for granted, and often consider the cultural divide as intense as the linguistic or geographical. And the campus students find themselves stuck in the middle, agonizing over which side to align themselves and where Israel fits into their self image and that of their peer circles. But no matter what group you might fit into, even the haters cannot ignore the impossibilities that Israel had made possible.
 
As in the generations before us, it is our very success that sometimes drives the resentment and venom of those who seek to diminish the Jewish nation and delegitimize our ancestral rights to our homeland. It is our ability to overcome and outlast that pushes many to spew their vitriol against the Jews, throwing around empty accusations of privilege. Tell that to the survivors of the Holocaust hell… The only privilege we possess is that of our historical bond - Torah, People, Land. It is while each of these continues to be denied to us that we must celebrate the elements of our global community and our connection as Israel - as Virtual Citizens and Citizens of Israel alike - and forever stand united with honor, pride and dignity.

An explosion was heard in western Tehran on Thursday night, Reuters reported, citing the official IRIB news agency.
 
IRIB did not provide any additional information about the cause of the blast or possible casualties.
Electricity has been cut in the area of the explosion in suburbs west of Tehran, it reported.
 
There have been multiple explosions around military, nuclear and industrial facilities in the past week.
 
Two people were killed in an explosion at a factory in the south of Tehran on Tuesday.
 
Last Thursday, Iran announced that an "accident" had occurred at the Natanz nuclear complex in central Iran.
 
On Sunday, an unnamed Middle Eastern intelligence official with knowledge of the “accident” at Natanz told The New York Times that Israel was responsible for the attack, which he said was carried out using a powerful bomb.
 
Also last week, 19 people were killed in an explosion at a medical clinic in the north of Tehran, which an official said was caused by a gas leak.
 
On June 26, an explosion occurred east of Tehran near the Parchin military and weapons development base. In this incident, as well, authorities said the explosion was caused by a leak at a gas storage facility in an area outside the base

sparrow,

I miss going to do my own shopping as I am then able to select such as Avocado which come from Israel. What is selected for me I have no idea, I do have on other labels where fruit come from. 
I posted yesterday over at facebook a SHARE from Nathalie Blackham, she post a load of pictures of Old City of Israel not a bit of waste paper on the streets and the fruit extraordinary, laid out in the open and you do not see a fly.

Elaine:

What I have done in the past in my area is to ask the Produce Manager if corn sold there was GMO.  I was not given an answer at the time because they did not know.  However, most of the vegetables today here in this same grocery store are labeled where they are from.

So, it is good to ask questions.  I also asked one Butcher if they put additives and tenderizers in their meat.  I was given a demonstration of how to tell.  Animal meat bruises the same as humans.

All imported food should be labeled.  Actually, all food should be labeled.  Many days on the road of travel is not so good and causes food to spoil much faster.   I have been finding lately, after a few days for shipped in cucumbers, they tend to grow mold. 

Do you have a local Farmer's Market?    Most foods grown locally are obviously better and fresher!     

I admire you for having your own little garden!!!

sparrow,

Things have got harder for me these past years due to the road traffic accident the limbs painful and not as strong, not just because of the lockdown I now have to rely on store delivery Tesco mostly, unless my Son fetch what I need.

There was a local Butcher Shop where my daughter used to take me but need to travel, as you probably remember I do not drive. 
Due to the lockdown I do not know what has happened my Son get my meat for me and it is Welsh Lamb and Beef so we buy local produce.

Good morning sparrow,

And the miracle of having my Son is doubled when the whole story of how they wanted me to have an abortion saying because of age could be of down syndrome.

He was a miracle of answered prayer, well actually not a prayer but a chat with God of my thoughts and feelings. Being 10 years between my last child and 20 from my eldest, besides my circumstances which you could hardly call it a marriage.

Elaine
