LDFI give evidence to Parliament
LDFI Chair Gavin Stollar and Vice President Lord Monroe Palmer gave evidence today to Parliament’s Home Affairs Select Committee today on their Inquiry into Anti-semitism.
We urged the committee to recognise the following:
1. Anti-Zionism is inherently anti-Semitic as it both denies Jews the right to self-determination and fundamentally denies Israel’s right to exist as the nation state of the Jewish people.
2. Invoking any kind of Nazi comparison or language is anti-Semitic because of the highly sensitive historical ties between Jews, nazis and the holocaust.
3. The political obsession of some around Israel is often a cloak for something more sinister. As the only democracy in the Middle East it defies logic that Israel should be the focus of so much attention.
The Committee’s report is expected to be published in September.
