Ambassador Ron Prosor said Britain's reputation of fairness and courteous debate had been "hijacked" by critics of Israel who have created a double standard over the conflict between the Jewish state and the Palestinians.
"Britain has become a hotbed for radical anti-Israeli views and a haven for disingenuous calls for a 'One state solution', a euphemistic name for a movement advocating Israel's destruction," Prosor told The Telegraph Tuesday. "Those who propagate this notion distort Israel's past while categorically denying Israel's right to exist as a liberal Jewish-democratic state."
The newspaper said Prosor was particularly critical of academics who have been urging British universities to boycott Israeli colleges over Israel's Palestinian policies.
