HISTORY OF ‘DISGRACE’

-

PROFESSOR David Miller has repeatedly faced criticism for his conspiracy theories, his defence of expelled Labour activists and his strident attacks on British Jewish groups.

In May, 2020, Prof Miller was suspended from the Labour party. He quit a month later accusing leader Sir Keir Starmer of receiving money from the “Zionist movement”.

In December, 2020, the CST detailed in its report into antisemiti­sm on campus Prof Miller’s now notorious power point presentati­on on the ‘Five Pillars of Islamophob­ia”. One of those “pillars” was Zionist and pro-Israel groups, including the CST. The CST branded Bristol University an “utter disgrace” for failing to take any action.

Prof Miller also clashed with the CST over the immigratio­n hearing of blood libel cleric Sheikh Raed Saleh, leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. Writing last week, Prof Miller claimed informatio­n provided by CST to the hearing was inaccurate, which was not true.

The academic has also spoken out in support of former London Mayor Ken Livingston­e, who was suspended in 2016 after comments he made about Adolf Hitler supporting Zionism.
