Labour needs to realise Jews’ identity is inexorably linked to Israel

Yachad’s director Hannah Weisfield response to Jon Lansman’s claim Labour was right to reject the IHRA definition of antisemitism in The Jewish Chronicle. July 13 2018

 

“Lansman is correct that there are many Jews who are critical – to different degrees – of policies of the Israeli government. Yachad has not once shied away from criticising the Israeli government but has always felt the IHRA definition reflects the vast majority of Jewish opinion. It makes it explicitly clear that it does not see harsh criticism of Israel as antisemitic. It is entirely possible to criticise Israel and fight antisemitism at the same time.”
