Israel, antisemitism and the responsibility of Labour MPs

"Fiona Sharpe, spokeswoman for Labour Against Antisemitism, said: “Some of the social media comments from Labour MPs over the last few days regarding the situation in Israel and Gaza have been ill-advised and ill-informed. They have a duty to use their platform responsibly and they are failing to uphold that responsibility.

“We would urge all public figures to deploy caution when commenting on what is happening in Israel and Gaza and avoid tweeting anything that could inflame the situation and also endanger the Jewish community here in any way.”
