Last London borough adopts IHRA definition of antisemitism

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.”
