Ealing Council has unanimously backed the IHRA definition of antisemitism, making it the last London borough to formally adopt the interpretation of Jew-hate.

The definition passed without opposition at a meeting of the full council despite disruption from protesters gathered behind a Palestinian flag.

“Shame on this council for standing with apartheid and imperialism,” a protester chanted. “We will not allow business as usual while Palestine suffers.”

A spokesperson for the Board of Deputies thanked Ealing Council for adopting the definition, adding:” This is truly appreciated by the capital’s Jewish community.”
