An oily Foreign Office minister tasks Foyle's department with providing security at an upcoming conference on the future of Palestine but Foyle is more concerned with the murder of Sir David Woolf, a Jewish shipping tycoon who has been taking Jews to the new state and whose ships have been sabotaged. At the same time Adam attempts to prevent Charles Lucas, the anti-Semitic leader of the International Unity party, from holding a public meeting which, as Adam had feared, leads to a riot and two deaths. Meanwhile local rabbi Avraham Greenfeld welcomes Palestinian medical student Lea Fisher, whose father was killed by British soldiers following a bomb outrage in Jerusalem. The rabbi's son is supervising the sound at the conference - where an effort to sabotage it is averted, whilst Foyle unmasks those responsible for Sir David Woolf's death. Written by don @ minifie-1

Anti-Semitism at Its Worst
27 September 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

It's easy to think about the Holocaust as an aberration, the Nazis wiping out six million people. Surely when the war was over, things went back to normal. Because a huge number of people blamed the Jews for virtually every eventuality, the bad economy, lack of jobs, lack of opportunity, things hardly ended. Foyle, once again finds himself embroiled in a case where people display their hatred and do some of the things those Germans did. It shows how easy it is to sway a population that is hurting. It was Hitler's greatest "strength." In this one, a conference is going to be held, and there are terrorist groups around (or are there). A young woman is at the center of much of this as well as a bigoted drum beater with no moral sense whatsoever. It makes that old case for free speech versus hatred spilling into the streets. Sam gets involved again, much to her husband's utter shock. Very good episode as the series winds to a halt.
