Fancy that - Fake Charity, Sussex Friends of Israel, is 66 days overdue in submitting its accounts

The Wonder is that SFI an overtly political organisation was ever allowed to become a charity in the first place

Sussex Friends of Israel can't even be bothered to comply with the basic requirement of charities to file annual accounts on time

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people. Founded by former inmate of Exeter HMP, Simon Cobbs, who even fellow far-Right Zionist Sharon Klaff has accused of blackmailing her, SFI has as its main, indeed only objective organising to combat any manifestations of support for the Palestinians.

It would seem that Sussex Friends of Israel don't believe that the most basic requirements of being a charity, filing annual accounts, apply to them. It would seem that racial supremacy has gone to their head.  Either way they are now 68 days late in filing their accounts.
Sussex Friends of Israel first came on the scene at the time of the pickets of Sodastream in Brighton five years ago.  After two years of demonstrations, when we witnessed repeated acts of aggression from them, vile racist abuse by people like Fiona Sharpe (see her baiting attack on a Palestinian as being a ‘fascist lying pig’) the shop was forced to close down.
Yet more attacks on Labour as an antisemitic party
Charities are under an obligation to be politically neutral - calling Corbyn a 'racist, terrorist supporting antisemite' would seem to breach that obligation
Recently they have taken to trying to harass the PSC stall at the Clocktower in Brighton. They had previously campaigned against ‘anti-Semitism’ in New Road, Brighton but such was the hostility of local people, coupled with the refusal of the Police to allocate resources to defend this mixture of Christian fundamentalists and racist bigots that in the end they sought shelter from the public with supporters of the Palestinians at the Clocktower, where peoples’ reactions to them are no different.
According to SFI the Labour Party is an anti-semitic party. Clearly they are not politically neutral
Their professed objects include
A)           educating the public in different religious beliefs, including an awareness of their distinctive features and their common ground to promote good relations between persons of different faiths. In particular, we are committed to ensuring that there is a balance in any debate about israel and encourage reconciliation between Jews and Arabs.
B)           promoting knowledge and mutual understanding and engaging meaningfully with those working towards a peaceful, just, democratic and lasting resolution of the...
These liars don’t even have the courage to state explicitly that their purpose is the defence of Israel at all costs. But then dishonesty is a fundamental feature of Zionism.

SFI is a Zionist propaganda organisation containing a mixture of rabid Jewish and Christian racists. See The Janus Faced Fiona Sharpe of Sussex Friends of Israel
It is therefore with some sadness that I have to announce that this ‘charity’ has failed to meet even the most basic reporting requirements of a charity, i.e. filing accounts. It seems in some difficulty financially.  In its first year of operation, 2014-15, it had an income of £15,000 and spent precisely one pound. The next year they had an income of £10K and a surplus of £5K. In 2016-17 they had no income whatsoever and spent £15K and this year?  Who knows since they’ve obviously decided that the requirement to file accounts is in itself an act of anti-Semitism .
It's difficult to know what motivated SFI to put this vile article from the Sun on its Facebook page
They are, at the time of writing, over 2 months overdue.  No doubt they have more pressing things to do like support the far-Right in Israel and attack the Palestinians.
If you want to know how vile SFI is then you only need to look at the comments on their Facebook page at the time of the death of the Jewish Father of the House of Commons, Sir Gerald Kaufman. See SFI Pays Tribute on its Facebook page to Gerald Kaufman as only it knows how. Comments such as that by Trudy Greenstone-Segal that ‘If anyone was repulsive it was this traitor’ or Ros Ellis’s ‘some days are better than others.’
Fiona Sharpe, in fetching pink hair, is shouting abuse at a Palestinian
Given Gerald Kaufman considered himself a Zionist and supported a Jewish state but spoke up strongly against the horrific human rights abuses of Israel, then you can gain some understanding of just how far to the Right Sussex Friends of Israel is.
