Defending the rights of Palestinians and criticising Israel are increasingly being conflated with anti-semitism. Jeremy Corbyn was attacked for his support for Palestinian rights throughout his time as leader of the Labour Party. Now all the contenders to take his place have pledged themselves to recommendations from the Board of Jewish Deputies that binds them to the position that criticism of Israel is anti-semitic. At the same time, anti-semitism is on the rise around the world. Brian Parkin introduces the discussion, arguing that anti-semitism is a scourge that must be fought at every level and that support for Palestine, and criticism of the Israeli state, is a necessary part of the broader struggle against imperialism and for the freedom and dignity of Jews and Palestinians alike.
