The Jewish Labour Movement’s closing submission to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHCR) has been leaked in full online and it reveals a devastating litany of antisemitic abuse going right to the top of the Labour Party.
The submission includes the testimonies of 77 serving and former Labour officials, who have given sworn statements. Party members have submitted more than 100 testimonies.
Here are some of its most important sections.
The submission illustrates anti-Jewish prejudice in the Labour party, irrespective of views on Israel: “This abuse sometimes takes the form of language relating to Israel (“e.g. “Dirty Zionist” and “Zio”). However, it is clear from the evidence that these words are now within the Party lexicon of insults for a Jewish person, regardless of that person’s views on Israel.”
