The Guardian publishes CAA Chairman’s letter after complaint is lodged

The US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism should not be scrapped, as Ira Forman’s legacy shows

Campaign Against Antisemitism strictly confines its output to antisemitism in the United Kingdom, leaving antisemitism elsewhere in the world to our Everyday Antisemitism project, which reports daily on antisemitic incidents across the globe, and is well worth visiting and subscribing to.
