2:08 am

2:21 am
inside story is next. if you criticize israel all the jewish people are you a racist anti-semitic it's more the ok's labor leader jeremy call been under pressure is the fuse the route for now but the question remains what exactly does anti semitism mean this is the inside story.
2:22 am
hello and welcome to the program. the definitive anticipate islam has long been a dividing topic it's commonly used to describe hostility to words or discrimination against jews as a religious or racial group but what's considered discriminative is disputed thirty one countries have a daughter the definition by the international holocaust when members of alliance. a it includes eleven examples of anticipated behavior not everyone agrees on them and they shoe has engulfed the u.k.'s labor party in iraq for months its leader jeremy corbyn has been accused of holding on to semitic views on tuesday he bowed under mounting pressure to adopt the full definition of a but with a coffee at laws leigh reports. can you say what he wants to about israel without being accused of hating jews these people who support jeremy colvin believe it is entirely legitimate to condemn israel as institutionally racist. without being
2:23 am
cautious as races themselves we need to proceed you know i mean this is a party that can become the party of government and we can discuss matters of foreign policy the rights of the palestinians to their own self-determination the the suffering that the palestinians are experiencing at the hands of israel we can discuss that in the labor party because it will be the find is anti semitic. think of it often but these british jews friends of israel said that his bigotry fascism and jewish people at the moment everybody i know is considering leaving the country young people are leaving the country i know loads of young people in that twenty's have gone to israel and you know jeremy corbin looks as if he's going to become prime minister u.s.a.'s stream of jewish people leaving the united kingdom that has to be terrible. the whole lot of it was labour's refusal to accept several examples
2:24 am
of anti semitic language and views as defined by the international holocaust remembrance alliance or i h r a it is deemed anti semitic to say for instance the jews a normal to israel in their own country or the states of israel is by definition racist or that israeli government policy is like those of nazi germany colvin and his supporters have claimed this prevented them from properly criticizing israel's actions towards the palestinian people. under huge pressure to adopt the i.h.r. a coast policy executive finally did but also reserve the right to criticize israel even the deputy party leader didn't seem convinced or somebody said not averse rail is a racist in devon now will they be disciplined by the labor party look the caviar is what it says you could make your own most of the critics will accuse the labor party of trying to play with words in this supposed compromise what is the difference between criticizing israel and expressing support for the palestinians
2:25 am
and could. sizing israel's actions towards the palestinians one might not be anti-semitic one might be open to interpretation and certainly it is not the unequivocal backing of the anti semitism codes that many labor politicians have been demanding thanks to the danger in this for cool thing is that in trying to keep his political party happy he will have upset his grassroots supporters who want to say what they like to see about israel this decision may not have cleared up anything more recently al jazeera london. let's bring in our panel joining us in london we have emma force the national organizer of the students' bias program a tenner jackson society sarah glynn join us from dunn de scotland via skype she is a member of the scottish jews against zionism and from tel aviv gideon levy
2:26 am
a columnist with haaretz welcome to the program emma how significant is the labor party's vote well i think that it is significant i think it's thirty disappointing that the i actually are a definition of anti semitism couldn't be adopted in full i think the criticisms of the definition are wildly unfounded. i think that whilst this could be seen as a step in the right direction i think through the sort of cavity ads that jeremy corbyn wanted to put forward in addition to the definition has sort of undermined the entire process and again has sort of stuck it to the jewish community and told them that he actually doesn't care about them and then science sarah would this help the party in move beyond the and to submit is of controversy
2:27 am
that has been going on for quite some time i don't think anything that could be done now is going to any concession to what's essentially bullying designed to get rid of all i left has to do. what they see in its weaknesses and they're going to push further i think it was interesting that your previous speaker talked about process because i don't think it's anything to do with anti-semitism. as it is a proto saying all. that willing if it wasn't anti-semitism who is something. good in we seem to be having now some sort of. mixed reactions was the those by labor party how do you see it. i think the israeli propaganda and the jewish community are mixing the liberals to the between genuine criticism about israel
2:28 am
about zionism about the occupation and anti semitic isn't and they're doing saw it's not new is there all the weapon of israel to paralyze any kind of criticism about israel or don't have patience that is i think that this will continue because it is very efficient because it did paralyze many israeli critics in the world blair labeling them as empty semites with no reason anna you said that it's fine with adopting the i it's a definition but no to the car vs particular the one which talks about freedom of expression when it comes to israel and the support for the rights of the policy is why should you be concerned with plainly says that this should not prompt us from saying things for what what they are. i think essentially by kavita
2:29 am
saying that the irish are a definition with this little phrase about freedom of speech and herit need just says that what the definition does for him that freedom of speech and criticism of the israeli government and israeli policy and that is not what the definition does and the idea that the protection of jewish the jewish community is in any way to do with the occupation or to do with people having the right to speak out. and protest campaign against the israeli government is absurd and i think that it's really undermining to put this on necessary kavya at the end of the definition of racism and i think it shows a complete disregard for the concerns of the jewish community center how do you respond to the growing criticism that we've seen over the last year. by the jewish
2:30 am
community in the u.k. about the saying that they were basically undermining the very basic tenets of the jewish community. well. there is an irish community there are many jewish communities and there are many get through here is from within you yes and actually the essence of it because there are suggestions in. the examples that go with the definition doesn't do conflate zionism with judaism and not told you is the point i mean of course not all scientific theories either. everybody interesting example that your career you speak of is well examples about criticising its ready government involvement it doesn't allow for criticism or the idea that all scientists and of the scientists to and of est
2:31 am
civic. one ethnic or religious group in front of. mr levy carbons political career has never been an easy one now after this vote this is this something which rippers visions him as the uncontested leader of the left in the u.k. absolutely and try to be so and therefore i think people of conscious leftist and people of conscience people who care about human rights people talking about just these especially in the middle east should cross the fingers in the hole that he would be one day very soon hopefully the next prime minister of the united kingdom because he really presents something else and he needed presents a real hope when hope is sorrier in this part of the world i think that someone who would talk in a different language and tire different languages in the language of being
2:32 am
conscious in english of justice of equality this language we have missing here in the middle east so much and if the. this will happen i think it's almost miracle is it really really hoping that this will happen and minute supporters of the labor party in particular say the reason why you and many other people criticize him criticize his legacy of the whole to submit his own thing is because the man has been staunchly defending the bites of the palestinians staunchly quote is sizing israel's politics yeah i would just like to say that i've really dispute the fact that the jewish community expressing concern over hatred towards them somehow disregards their concern and compassion towards the palestinians towards any other type of group or conflict this definition is entirely about racism
2:33 am
towards the jewish community and is not about lack of compassion towards a conflict or any other type of. or any type other type of issue goes on and again i think the idea that the corbin because he covers a lot of the anti semitic stances or associates that he is how do the pastors pro palestinian activism is appalling and i think we would need to distinguish this fact the reason why the jewish community are very concerned with corbin's actions is not towards the fact that he's shown support for the palestinians and their struggle which we many jews feel too but it's his associates it's the hosting of of anti semites it's his support for terrorist groups with genocidal intent towards the jewish community and it is it is these things that are really where the concerning not any type of support for the palestinians which i think we can all
2:34 am
agree is a legitimate cause sorrow if you like to step in here. yeah absolutely i mean you've got probably the most anti racist manner in politics. in jeremy corbyn and it's just absurd to think to describe him as anti semitic or anything that he does as anti semitic obviously there will be a few people who are anti semitic or say anti semitic things you know we're misunderstanding in the labor party are you at any other parties i mean it's much and semitism is much less prominent on the left the anti semitism we should be really seriously concerned about the anti-semitism on the far right and the press where funding cutting that anti semitism it's strong left newsman's mr levy
2:35 am
there are those who say that the lines here are blurred and that the far wyatt and the blairites in the labor party of the ones who are pushing for this smear campaign to dislodge carbon because they know that the man if he stays in power his likely going to be the next leader. yeah absolutely i think that the who here is danger for jews for injustice is much more in the far right wing all over the world by the way israel is now the best friend of the hungary and prime minister he's much more of an anti semite than anyone in the british labor anyone and still israelis saluting too to hungary and to its prime minister i think that there is here the very cynical manipulation people don't like corbin because he's too much of a leftist the jewish community part of the jewish community the jewish
2:36 am
establishment is fighting corbin because he's too populous tinian and too until you patient may be anti israeli and by the end of the day it is so much not only legitimate the so much needed to criticize israel to support the palestinians and to speak as i said before in a new language which is unknown in the west and therefore we are looking forward to see him as prime minister. anti semitism is a controversial subject sparking reactions worldwide policy leader mahmoud abbas apologized for remarks he made about the holocaust who previously said the historic persecution of european jews was caused by their conduct not their religion south carolina became the first us state to pass legislation to fight anti semitism in colleges and universities defining it as cause for attacks on jews blaming israel
2:37 am
for all political tensions and denying its right to exist some three hundred french public figures signed a manifesto denouncing a new anti semitism the warned against what they called islamic radicalization and demanded certain passages of the qur'an be removed germans of various faiths were war jewish scott caps and took to the streets in several cities to protest against and to semitic attack in berlin the nation of islam leader louis farrakhan lost his verify a twitter status after he posted a video warning about what he called the satanic jew emma we've seen the reactions coming from different political leaders in the u.k. and different representatives of the jewish community or communities has been saying previously now after the vote do you think that
2:38 am
a chapter has been turned and that the labor could finally now build or will build trust with the jewish communities. well i think. as margaret hodge has mentioned it's almost like one step forward and two steps back. i think that it was absolutely right that the i h r a definition which has been adopted in thirty one countries and by countless organizations. should be adopted in full but i think it's wrong that corbin felt the need to put an unnecessary caveat about free speech on israel which is which is inherent within the definition the definition of anti-semitism does not prohibit any type of criticism of israel and the israeli government so i do think that it's almost like corbin has. can sort of given the jewish community a kick in the teeth and i'm said ok i'll bow to pressure and i we will adopt the
2:39 am
full definition of anti-semitism that most people agree is the right one but on the other hand when i'm also going to put in a cause that almost gets the green light to racists i'm down to see might sarah behavior is the problem here basically many are saying that the international definitive version of and to sim it is a should not be used as a pretext to muzzle discontent all over the world particularly when it comes to targeting the policies of israel so you can't come back to people wait you have to stop there because you've crossed the red line not just the policies of israel but . more specifically silence is criticism on the side is a parent say you know it. does allow you to criticize certain policies
2:40 am
but it doesn't allow you to say how you are limited i think actually the whole nature underline nature of the state is one of the problems and from. it's really important. gideon some of the criticism there was i mean we've been talking about. the president wants. labor on the northeast to listen to other stinging voices ok where are they in this debate standing a very great. biden pain is outside any c. yesterday let me go to. gideon levy mr levy one of the concerns that were voiced by the. jewish community in the u.k. is basically or all over the world is zionism conflated with jews but as you know these are not defined set into stone man if people say that we have to face the
2:41 am
reality which is basically zionism is creating problems for israel because of its policies look first of all the jewish communities or at least their establishment. for sure in the u.k. but also in other places in europe and for sure in the united states a dainty fight them serves all morse automatically and blindly was any kind of policy that is really stake not only was own is but was any kind of policy including obviously maintaining this brutal reality of military occupation over fifty years this has a price because once the jewish establishment are identifying themselves blindly automatically with any kind of israeli government in any kind of israeli policy they are also exposing themselves for certain dangers obviously this can be translated into an dissimulate ism in many cases which i'm told to be against don't
2:42 am
be wrong and the same it isn't should be forte but it must also be understood that many times the policy of israel your symmetry isn't all over the world. and years of made the far left and corben in particular some sort of a are viable enemy but aren't you concerned that we all know this is the time of the age of the populist movements of the far right but to morrow the latter can stage a comeback aren't you concerned by staging these. political statements you might be burning bridges with the left all over the world though i don't think so at all i think the suggestion the jewish community coming out against concerns. over threats threats to them and racism. is it's absolutely legitimate and i don't think that is
2:43 am
a facet gesture and i think also i think previously was mentioned. that concerns over far right and he semitism overshadows and means that we can't talk about one sentence on the left and that is absolutely not the case and i think the revivalism of corbin on the fact the corbin has so much power as being the leader of the opposition of him out to see this government i think means that we that this is a real serious concern and we can do two things at once we can be concerned about populism and anti semitism on the right this very moment in time corbin and anti semitism on the left. is very very powerful and they are gaining more and more mainstream legitimacy and that's something that i think is justified to be concerned about after the controversy sara do you think that the labor party is going to come out more sensitive about those concerns or the country more aggressive about those issues particularly criticizing israel and support for the
2:44 am
whites of the palestinians. i'm very worried about the labor party i mean this labor party is so strange and this is all i can i mean it's we've got a. coalition of course between people who are arguing these things the zionist reasons and people are arguing it because they want to return the labor party to the blairite party that it was that this is a fight for this sort of the labor party i mean the party is tearing itself apart in a tiger and we need a strong left movement so i am very worried about it. obviously and i don't and i am also concerned. jews should be being implicated in this in this financed years it's not it's not a fight it's a really ultimately can not be semitism it's a fight for the soul of the labor party. and. you know
2:45 am
that we've got this very right when you reach a leader who are trying to tell the labor party what to say and why should the labor party say more likely she just want to say sarah glyn getting levy enough folks thank you very much indeed for your contribution to the program and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our web site c.n.n. dot com for further discussion go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter i'll hand it is a.j. inside saudi for me hashem one of the team here by phone or.
