Scottish hotel cancels Jewish event after "threats" - The Commentator

'Student from St Andrews University have reportedly been stopped from holding a charity event due to threats sent to the venue - the St Andrews Golf Hotel.

Jewish students were due to hold a black tie Matzah Ball at the prestigious location with almost 100 expected to attend from around the UK. Money raised was to be sent to seven Israeli charities supported including the Jewish National Fund (JNF) and Friends of the Israel Defence Forces (FIDF).

But following pressure from the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign (SPSC), as reported by the Jewish Telegraph, hotel manager Niall Thompson cancelled the booking.

Sources have said that the hotel has received threatening emails and calls and was recently made aware that there was going to be a demonstration. Thompson is noted as saying that felt that he had to cancel due to health and safety concerns for staff and hotel guests.'
