Understanding Labour’s disavowal of the IHRA definition
In September 2001 at the global conference against racism in Durban there was a campaign to construct Zionism as the key racism on the planet. Opposition to antisemitism was presented as incompatible with opposition to racism. Jews were said to be white, Israel racist, and...

The speech Jeremy Corbyn should make, but never will
I could write a lovely speech for Jeremy Corbyn. The speech would deal with the anti-Semitism issue and make it go away. He could re-vitalise his whole project, re-focus it on the core business of the Corbyn movement: liberating millions from unnecessary poverty and marginalisation,...

Brexit could see the rise of racists across Europe
BREXIT WOULD cause an immediate recession and the poor would pay. The pound, wages, consumption and GDP would plummet; cuts in welfare, pension, health and education would follow. In the long-term, the economy would continue to suffer as we find ourselves locked out of the...

There’s nobody left to oppose UCU bigotry
The reason that we do not hear much about anti-Semitism anymore in the University and College Union (UCU) is not that the culture has changed. It is that there are no Jews left in the decision making structures of the union willing or able to...

Opposing settlements is constructive criticism, not anti-Semitism
I spoke at an event last night, a debate on whether the two-state solution is dead, with Melanie Phillips and others. The Jewish News website has published a transcript of my remarks. It was largely a pro-settlement audience. Many seemed to think it would...
