Antisemitism and Labour's Labours: Behind the Rhetoric

It is, of course, all about Israel.

The IHRA antisemitism definition

The International Holocaust Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism (2016) reads:

"Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred towards Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities."

As a teenager growing up in the Isle of Thanet in Kent, I didn’t take much notice of road names.
