Poll: 40 Percent of British Jews Considering Leaving UK ‎Over Antisemitism

2

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

According to data presented by Gideon Falter, ‎chairman of the Campaign against Anti-Semitism NGO, ‎‎90 percent of British Jews believe the Labour Party is ‎antisemitic and 40 percent are considering leaving the UK ‎over the rise in antisemitism.‎

Falter presented the data 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 antisemitic hate crimes ‎in Labour, whose leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has faced ‎growing criticism about his tolerance of racism and ‎antisemitism 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 freedom ‎of religion and worship across Europe, fully ‎adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance ‎Alliance’s definition of antisemitism, a commitment ‎to exclude antisemitic parties from coalitions, and ‎calling on all political parties to designate the ‎boycott, divestment and sanctions movement as antisemitic. ‎

  1. Little by little, the nervous Eurpoeans forget that the jews are the priest class.

    What a war. Now another. What was any flag of Europe thinking when it went up? Not solidarity and humane willing dream. Maybe just another garrison to their brash culture.

    Jews do not seem to want any feeling of holocaust. Surprise? Leave.
