Poll: 40 percent of British Jews considering leaving UK ?over anti-Semitism

An incredible 90 percent of British Jews believe that the Labour Party is ?anti-Semitic, and 40 percent are considering leaving the United Kingdom ?because of the spike in anti-Semitism.?

 

 A new survey has found that British Jews are growing ?increasingly concerned over anti-Semitism in the ?country. ?

According to data presented by Gideon Falter, ?chairman of the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism NGO, ??an incredible 90 percent of British Jews believe that the Labour Party is ?anti-Semitic, and 40 percent are considering leaving the United Kingdom ?because of the spike in anti-Semitism.?

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 the freedom ?of religion and worship across Europe; fully ?adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance ?Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism; a commitment ?to exclude anti-Semitic parties from coalitions; and ?calling on all political parties to designate the BDS movement as anti-?Semitic. ?
