Very often outnumbered, sometimes out-voted but never undaunted, Jewish students have been in the vanguard of the fight against a rising tide of antisemitic and anti-Israel propaganda. Their plight was recognised by the Parliamentary All-Party Committee on Antisemitism, whose report in 2006 called on university vice-chancellors to set up a working party “to take robust action against antisemitism on campus”. On Monday, Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks left a distinguished audience — gathered to see how far the government had progressed in dealing with the Committee’s recommendations — in no doubt that not enough was being done to protect our students. According to a government review released this week, no working group has been established; antisemitism on campus is one of three areas “which remain of concern and require further work”. Jewish students have a formidable champion in the Chief Rabbi; allied with the Committee’s chairman John Mann MP, vice-chancellors can be sure that their complacency will not be tolerated.
