Board of Deputies of British Jews Vice President Amanda Bowman has reacted to the Green Party’s decision to adopt two contradictory definitions of antisemitism.
Amanda said: “By adopting a series of contradictory definitions of antisemitism, the Green Party has not helped Jews. The Board of Deputies advice is clear: the globally-respected International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition is the only definition that should be adopted. By adopting other definitions, the Green Party is attempting to please both the mainstream Jewish community and those determined to claim that criticising Israel can never under any circumstances be antisemitic. They simply cannot have it both ways.”
