Please Help Simple Simon Cobbs – Sussex Friends of Israel’s Actor is in the running for an Oscar

 Shy Simon Has Once Again Asked Youtube to Take Down This Video of His Cameo Performance
Please Share and Help Simple Simon’s Acting Career

It was only last week that I received an email from Twitter. Simon Cobbs of Sussex Friends of Israel has complained (again) about his cameo performance in a video that dates back to when we successfully picketed the Israeli shop Ecostream in Brighton and forced it to close down.
Being shy Simple Simon, whose wonderfully varied dialogue in the video has been the subject of much admiration (‘grow a pair of ball’ he shouted at 2 women!) naturally doesn’t want to see others see his brilliant and self-effacing performance.
I am therefore giving you the chance to watch it for yourself, here and here.

Indeed you might want to reflect on SFI’s Code of Conduct which is based on the principles of respect, responsibility and integrity’.  The discerning amongst you will note that
  • SFI seeks to honour individual, cultural and role differences, including (but not exclusively) those involving age, disability, education, ethnicity, gender, language, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, marital or family status and socio-economic status.
And in particular SFI ‘stakeholders should aim to refrain from harassment – unwelcome verbal, offensive, abusive or physical behavior – especially whensuch conduct interferes with another person or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment.’
Admirable principles I’m sure you will agree and it is no surprise that Simon is slightly shy about his well meaning and honest attempts to put these into practice.
Although Simon jealously guards his privacy we are sure that he will privately be pleased that we have managed to gain a wider audience for his undoubted talents.

Our Code of Conduct

The Sussex Friends of Israel (SFI) Code of Conduct is the ethical framework which every supporter and stakeholder is expected to observe. 

Respect, Responsibility and Integrity

·         SFI respects the opinions, knowledge, insight, experience and expertise of all members of the general public.
·         SFI avoids practices that are unfair, illegal or prejudiced. Supporters should be willing and able to explain the basis of personal ethical decision-making.
·         SFI seeks to be honest, accurate and lawful in its representations.
The underlying philosophical approach in this code is part of the ‘British eclectic tradition’. It seeks to ensure that moral principles and codes function act as guidelines for thinking about all decisions that need to be made.
Respect, responsibility and integrity are the collective responsibility of everyone associating with Sussex Friends of Israel.
