Anti-Semitism & A Better Way than Boycotts

Antisemitism: the UK adopted definition

Great Britain is amongst the first countries to embrace the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) explanation of the term. It aims to make it harder for culprits to get away with harassing and abusing Jews, including over-sweeping condemnation of Israel.

“Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.” – IHRA definition 12 Dec 2016


The following is a compilation of Information and Help Guides, along with various essays, which we hope will assist and inform you when confronted with issues around anti-Israel and anti-Jewish conflict.

These extracts and essays explore the fundamental problems with the BDS tactic as a means of positively contributing to the search for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. We do not assert that not engaging in BDS does not mean that people who care for the region can do nothing. Indeed, the situation compels us to act urgently for a better future. We therefore highlight the practical and positive alternatives that we in UK civil society can support together.

These issues can impact your life and cause you to experience social exclusion within your own community.
Being well informed will help you minimise this.
