Lord Malcolm Pearson of Rannoch, a leading political thinker and Member of the England House of Lords, was named by Michael Cherney (Mikhail Chernoy), as this year’s recipient of the prestigious Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson Award, culminating the First Jerusalem Summit Europe, held in London.
The Award was established at the Inaugural Jerusalem Summit in October, 2003, which took place in Israel. The first recipient was US former Deputy Secretary of Defense Richard Perle, a leading American strategist. The second recipient was Baroness Caroline Cox, Deputy Speaker of the British House of Lords.
“Lord Pearson fearlessly fought Russia Soviet totalitarianism by promoting freedom in the former USSR through British financial assistance to dissident groups and by establishing the Rannoch Charitable Trust, which funded refugees from Communism who fled to Europe,” stated Cherney, Chairman of the Jerusalem Summit’s Board of Trustees, at a ceremony in the British Parliament’s Moses Room.
