But looking online there are other groups such as Labour Friends of Palestine and the Middle East.
But I wonder if this group then includes Gaza, and also Israel again?
"FPME supports Parliamentarians in their efforts to fight for Palestinian rights and independent Palestine by providing briefings for debates and questions for submission to Ministers. We initiate EDMs and debates, organise events and assist with lobbying at all levels. We encourage MPs to take part in Palestine supporting campaigns outside Parliament. LFPME also organises delegations of MPs to visit Palestine to directly engage with Palestinians.

In the end most British voters want a political party working for the good of the country and its citizens. The other stuff is fine but surely secondary?
Now when I ask the following I know some will cry foul and liken me to some sort of nationalist but that is simply not true - Do we have any Labour or Conservative Friends of Britain working in parliament?
As the Labour party becomes embroiled in a carefully spun web of anti-Semitic intrigue:
How Israel lobby manufactured UK Labour Party’s anti-Semitism crisis
Thousands sign petition demanding John Mann is disciplined for rant at Ken Livingstone
No to racism no to slander
Thanks to Paul James on Facebook for the following:
Little wonder government is trying to clip Channel 4's wings?
Op-ed: Thursday Ken Livingstone, 69, was suspended from the Labour Party for comments he made on Hitler.
But before he was suspended he appeared on BBCDP and given the third degree over comments he had said on LBC radio.
He was accused of being a Nazi apologist and an anti Semite. His accuser was Labour MP John Mann and his BBC stunt played out for the cameras.
Between the two events above Livingstone returned home and changed into casual clothes to do some gardening. But outside of his home the media were gathering.
Either answering a knock on his door or hearing a rustle Ken opened the front door and what happened next was caught on camera and in footage.
An Israeli flag had been attached to the front door of his home and most viewers will have been reminded of images from Nazi Germany.
Yes the comparison is poor but it is what it is.
ITV News caught it all on camera and reported:
Ken Livingstone has been captured on video, coming out of his house to remove an Israeli flag that was tied to his front door.
Time for the real police surely?
Op-ed: OK so first things first. This writer is not racist, sexist, a Nazi sympathiser or an anti-Semite. But using false flags of anti-Semitism is as bad as being an anti-Semite in her opinion. She was one of many who tweeted a range of views and memes during the last Gaza invasion by Israel and stands by that. She is after all supposedly living in a free country and entitled to have opinions and share other opinions at times that she may not agree with.
Watching Labour backbencher John Mann Thursday verbally attack NEC candidate Ken Livingstone conveniently close enough for BBC reporters to film events was uncomfortable viewing.
Once again the BBC Daily Politics featured. Livingstone appeared on the BBCDP and offered some sympathy for Naz Shah and was pounced on by Mann outside of the studio.
But it looks as if Livingstone made the initial comments on LBC and was then invited onto the BBCDP to explain.
Another BBCDP publicity stunt at the expense of the Labour Party.
Livingstone has since been suspended from the Labour Party and Mann faces a reprimand whatever that may be.
An investigation by the Labour Party will follow.
Mr Livingstone was put on the spot by Mann in what looked once again like a carefully crafted BBC stunt.
Of course it warranted first billing on BBC lunchtime news ahead of all other world news Thursday but why? Draw your own conclusions on that one.
All political parties will have some 'ists' somewhere in the pot.
But why is the Labour party suddenly facing such headline making accusations?
Wednesday a Labour MP was suspended and apologised for comments on social media she made in 2014. 2014 was the year that Israel invaded Gaza killing many and social media was used by all sides to share anger and views.
Naz Shah was not an MP in 2014 when she shared a tweet and appeared to add her approval in a comment but it has been enough to draw wide scale mainstream media attention resulting in her suspension from the Labour Party and accusations that she is an anti-Semite.
Mr Livingstone was attacked by Mann for showing some support for Shah; John Mann dramatically for the camera called Livingstone a 'Nazi apologist'.
Ken Livingstone, a former London Mayor and once called Red Ken by the MSM was a thorn in the side of Tony Blair and New Labour. He was removed from the Labour Party but is back in the fold though not widely accepted.
Jeremy Corbyn won the Labour leadership race by a huge mandate but Labour lights that swing to the right are not happy.
Reports of planned coups could simply be right-wing media hype but they seem to have more than a touch of truth to them.
So is the Labour Party now full of anti-Semites or are some in and out of the party spinning a way of attacking and undermining Jeremy Corbyn?
Livingstone has now been suspended from the party but surely John Mann should face a similar fate until investigations are complete? This use and abuse of the BBC is damaging.
Ahead of local elections next week the Tory party is in disarray and Labour could and should do well at the polls.
However with such well publicised spats those wishing to undermine Corbyn even at the expense of election results will be patting each other on the back.
New Labour is dead but some still try to resurrect its corpse and oust Corbyn turning Labour back to another Conservative to centre right wing political party.
Those playing their political games are guaranteeing the Tories electoral success.
Feel free to comment but watch out for Labour's dreadfully named Compliance Unit or perhaps that should be 'thought police'.
My opinion? Follow the money trail.
Op-ed: Relatives of the 96 killed at the Hillsborough football stadium on April 15, 1989, in court Tuesday listened as a verdict of unlawful killing was returned.
They have taken a slow, long road to justice; it has arrived too late for some but better late than never.
Monday the jury returned their verdict but it was not made public until Tuesday allowing loved ones of the dead time to get to the court from wherever they live.
When the Liverpool football team and their army of fans descended on Sheffield for a match at the Hillsborough stadium in 1989 who would have believed the tragedy that would unfold? This writer watched events unfold on T.V. news before finally the plug was pulled on the harrowing viewing.
96 people died, including children, after crowds surged forward crushing the life out of those trapped behind pitch barriers.
Police blamed the fans and the Sun ran with a damning and fictitious story of drunken football hooligans causing the tragedy.
But the truth was a police officer made a decision to open a gate which caused a huge surge forward crushing many.
Living victims, suffering the effects of being present at such a terrible tragedy, should also be remembered.
Tuesday BBC News reports:
Ninety-six football fans who died as a result of a crush in the Hillsborough disaster were unlawfully killed, the inquests have concluded.
It was the 25th anniversary of this disaster in 2014 and the families of the dead were still searching for answers. After an apparent police cover up finally new inquests were launched which at last promised the hope of some closure?
In July 2015 the Daily Mirror reported Tony Blair 'rejected Hillsborough inquiry as a favour for Rupert Murdoch'.
Labour shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham took a different stance fighting long and hard to support the bereaved while pushing for justice.
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn met with relatives during the recent inquests.
BBC News reports the following key points from the court Tuesday:
Below is an image of a letter by Bernard Ingham, Margaret Thatcher's press secretary. In the letter addressed to a parent of a victim of the disaster, just months after Hillsborough, Ingham reiterated his belief that the disaster was caused by "tanked up yobs", a view later entirely refuted by the Hillsborough inquest:
According to WikiPedia "Sir Bernard Ingham (born 21 June 1932) is a British journalist and former civil servant who is best known as Margaret Thatcher's chief press secretary while she was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990. He was knighted in Mrs Thatcher's 1990 resignation honours list. Despite never having attended university himself Ingham lectured in public relations at The University of Middlesex. He was also secretary to Supporters of Nuclear Energy (SONE)(1998-2007), a group of individuals who seek to promote Nuclear Power in the United Kingdom and he holds the position of Vice President of Country Guardian, an anti-wind energy campaign group. Ingham is also a regular panellist on BBC current affairs programme Dateline London."
Today there are calls for him to be stripped of his knighthood.
Op-ed: Do you still believe BBC News in the UK offers a fair and unbiased news reporting service in the UK?
The BBC is fighting for its survival against a back threat of Tory privatisation but it also already has a fair few close Tory allies in key roles.
If we consider austerity protests in London and around the UK Saturday April 16 as opposed to TTIP protests held in Germany Saturday April 23, BBC News UK looks poor.
Ahead of the UK protests NEWTEKWORLD news reported "Western protests against rotten governments."
Angry people in the USA, France and the UK were protesting against their government for various reasons.
In the UK it was over austerity and budget cuts especially in light of recent off shore tax haven revelations which blew the whole austerity myth out of the water.
We posted a couple of reports from the day including from people who attended the London event:
Numerous people complained and spammed the Beeb on social media to try to get them to cover the protests.
In the end late in the day they ran a brief report.
If the protests had turned violent they would no doubt have been reporting on the spot.
But protests over in German have received the BBC's best attention.
Around 30,000 people protested in Hanover Germany ahead of Pres. Obama's visit to voice their anger and distrust of the planned Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
The BBC's choice of news cover continues to baffle, annoy and more.
Sadly it seems it no longer informs only selectively.
