Hate def­i­ni­tion adopted

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY LEE HARPIN

CAM­DEN COUN­CIL voted unan­i­mously to adopt the In­ter­na­tional Holo­caust Re­mem­brance Al­liance def­i­ni­tion of an­ti­semitism at a meet­ing this week.

Fears that the mo­tion would be chal­lenged by anti-Zion­ist cam­paign­ers proved un­founded as it was sup­ported by all the north Lon­don bor­ough’s coun­cil­lors on a cross-party ba­sis.

The IHRA work­ing def­i­ni­tion was adopted by Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May on be­half of the UK , and by the Lon­don Assem­bly and other lo­cal author­i­ties.

It reads: “An­ti­semitism is a cer­tain per­cep­tion of Jews, which may be ex­pressed as ha­tred to­ward Jews,” and Jewish prop­erty, com­mu­nity in­sti­tu­tions and re­li­gious fa­cil­i­ties.
