Anti-Semitism.

Spread the love

Conference confirms our total opposition to anti-Semitism in whatever form it takes. Hatred of Jews, abuse and discrimination against Jews and views expressed verbally or in writing e.g. on social media denigrating Jews must always be condemned. Our opposition to anti-Semitism must be absolutely consistent with our opposition to all forms of racism and race hatred.

Conference also recognises that false charges of anti-Semitism have also been used as a political weapon to attack those who support Palestine and criticise the state of Israel for its oppression of Palestinian people and its refusal to seek a just peace in the Middle East conflict.

Conference warmly welcomes the new JVL, Jewish Voice for Labour and commits UNITE to working closely with this organisation.

We shall not retreat from support for the justified cause of the Palestinian people because of the threat of being labelled anti-Semitic.
