Gerald Kaufman condemned by Board of Deputies of British Jews

Former Labour minister Sir Gerald Kaufman has been condemned by the Board of Deputies of British Jews and other bodies campaigning against anti-semitism for some extraordinary comments which included accusing the victims of stabbing attacks in Israel of having "fabricated" these attacks.

President Jonathan Arkush, President of the BDBJ, said
“We condemn Sir Gerald’s outrageous comments. We challenge him to travel to Israel immediately to ride around with the emergency services and to see for himself whether it is possible to fabricate knife attacks when victims are lying on the ground with blood pouring from their wounds. We also invite the Labour Party to initiate disciplinary proceedings to investigate his disgraceful words.”
What on earth was Kaufman thinking?
