Following the fantastic display of solidarity within the Jewish community over antisemitism within the Labour Party, this might be an opportune moment to revisit the submission by Professor Alan Johnson of BICOM to the unlamented Chakrabarti enquiry on antisemitism within the Labour Party.
Needless to say there was no sign whatever in the report that the enquiry had remotely taken account of Professor Johnson’s arguments. However, it’s really important that supporters of Israel understand these arguments. We need to understand where left-wing antisemitism and anti-Zionism come from, and what the relationship is between them.
The submission can be found here.
