Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor: labourists need to make a lot of things to restore the authority as anti-racist party



President of EEK Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor: "The Labour Party needs to make much more to restore authority of labourists as anti-racist party, and again to convince the British Jews that the party doesn't do any exceptions concerning any forms of anti-Semitism".

the European Jewish Congress (EJC) has taken into account the overdue decision of National executive committee of the Labour Party of Great Britain to accept the full text of working definition of anti-Semitism offered by the International alliance in memory of the Holocaust (IHRA) however regrets that the committee has made the additional comments to definition meaning that IHRA rejects the right to freedom of speech in relation to criticism of Israel.

the President of EEK Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor considers the initial decision of the Labour Party of July of this year on acceptance of incomplete working definition of anti-Semitism from IHRA the evidence of misunderstanding and disrespect from party as to the Jewish community, and in general to crimes because of hatred as representatives of party didn't hold any consultations with the Jewish organizations and communities on so important question. The decision on acceptance of a complete definition has to become the first step on eradication of anti-Semitism in the ranks of the party, the head of EEK is convinced.

"Doesn't do to the Labour Party credit the fact that, having even accepted the full text of definition of IHRA, it still considers necessary to put counteraction to anti-Semitism into dependence on a foreign policy position on the questions connected with the events which are taking place for many thousands of miles from Great Britain", - Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor has noted.

Commenting on elections to National executive party committee, Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor has said that their results "have shown that the Labour Party in the basis remains anti-Semitic and that anti-Semitism introduced in party by Jeremy Corbyn has deeply taken roots among her rank-and-file members". The newly elected committee is urged to realize definition of anti-Semitism of IHRA in practice, and in connection with its structure the head of EEK has dropped a hint of doubt in any practical results of this realization.

"To party leaders needs to be made much more to restore authority of labourists as anti-racist party, and again to convince the British Jews that the party doesn't do any exceptions concerning any forms of anti-Semitism. First of all, Mr. Corbyn needs to apologize for the last comments and communications with anti-semites and also to immediately carry out internal disciplinary process concerning all members of the Labour Party accused of anti-Semitism", - Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor has said in the conclusion.

needs to be noted that acceptance of definition of IHRA became a subject of the international consensus. The International alliance in memory of the Holocaust represents the interests of 31 states, and the wide range of the international experts on has been attracted to development of definition of anti-Semitism in
