In the UK Parliament on Tuesday, Labour MPs led a debate on anti-Semitism, calling on the party to take a hard look at itself and the way it has responded to a range of anti-Semitic incidents. Over the course of 3 hours, MPs recounted shocking abuse that they have witnessed themselves and that they have had reported to them from others, calling on the party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to ‘walk the walk’ and show ‘moral clarity’ on the issue. A consistent message was that Labour needs to get its own backyard in order.

From Ruth Smeeth:

There were messages of solidarity and support on Twitter:

This is a hugely complex issue for Labour to unpack — not because anti-Semitism is in any way defensible, but because of how the left reconciles its position on Israel and Palestine with its need to root out inequality and abuse. It is clear that difficult and complicated conversations need to take place. The first step is to listen — and there is a lot riding on the action that follows.
