Forty percent of British Jews considering leaving UK ‎over anti-Semitism


Dan Lavie

A new survey has found that British Jews are growing ‎increasingly concerned over anti-Semitism in the ‎country. ‎

According to data presented by Gideon Falter, ‎chairman of the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism NGO, ‎‎an incredible 90 percent of British Jews believe that the Labour Party is ‎anti-Semitic, and 40 percent are considering leaving the United Kingdom ‎because of the spike in anti-Semitism.‎

Falter presented the data on Tuesday at a European Jewish ‎Association conference in Brussels, during a session ‎on the challenges facing British Jews. ‎

The British police on Friday launched an official ‎investigation into alleged anti-Semitic hate crimes ‎in Labour, whose leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has faced ‎growing criticism about his tolerance of racism and ‎anti-Semitism in the party. ‎

The conference is expected to dedicate Wednesday’s ‎session to a proposal by EJA chairman Rabbi Menachem ‎Margolin detailing Jewish communities’ “red lines” ‎with respect to various agenda items Jewish ‎candidates wish to ‎promote as part of their ‎political activities in Europe.‎

This includes, among other things, ensuring the freedom ‎of religion and worship across Europe; fully ‎adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance ‎Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism; a commitment ‎to exclude anti-Semitic parties from coalitions; and ‎calling on all political parties to designate the BDS movement as anti-‎Semitic.
