Today, in response to a question from Bob Blackman MP about antisemitism on campuses during ‘Israeli Apartheid Week’, the Prime Minister emphatically endorsed the Minister of State for Universities’ call for universities to adopt the International Definition of Antisemitism. This is an extremely welcome development and comes as universities around the country have banned ‘Israeli Apartheid Week’ events over antisemitism fears.
Nevertheless, Baroness Amos, Director of the School of Oriental and African Studies, told Campaign Against Antisemitism that she will not even consider adopting the definition.
