JVL introduction

Palestine Briefing has circulated a detailed comparison of the IHRA definition and the Labour Party Code of Conduct on Antisemitism.

This establishes beyond doubt that the Code of Conduct is by far the better document – if dealing with antisemitism is the real aim.

The briefing also gives some examples of how the IHRA definition has been misused in practice.

UPDATE, 29 July 2018, 20.30: We have recived and added to this post another line-by-line comparison of the two documents prepared by Robert Jones
