Comment: As Theresa May names the “new antisemitism”, Jeremy Corbyn rushes to protect it

Campaign Against Antisemitism is determinedly apolitical, as should be the fight against antisemitism.

Jeremy Corbyn’s promise to review the decision not to expel Ken Livingstone comes too late — the horse has bolted

Jeremy Corbyn grilled on antisemitism by Home Affairs Select Committee

Our Campaign was not among those that offered to give evidence to the Chakrabarti Inquiry into antisemitism in the Labour Party.

Critics of Jeremy Corbyn, who is frontrunner to lead the Labour Party, are being smeared as extremists who are trying to stifle criticism of Israel.

Jeremy Corbyn and antisemites

The Campaign Against Antisemitism will always be apolitical and non-partisan. However, we also must not fear to call out antisemitism wherever we see it.

In the past week we have been […]
