Antisemitism rules not for Jews

LAAS statement

Labour sidelines Jewish community again before debate on antisemitism rules

Once again, the Labour Party appears to have shamelessly flaunted its disregard for the Jewish community.

Labour has apparently declined to consult Jewish community leaders on disciplining their members for antisemitism. This is a disgrace, and further underlines why the Party stands accused of being institutionally antisemitic to the extent that it is currently under investigation by the EHRC.

This apparent failure to consult the Jewish communal leadership has echoes of when Labour decided it could draft its own definition of antisemitism, believing it was better placed to define antisemitism than the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.
