Abstract

Following a significant increase in antisemitic incidents during the Isra el-Gaza war of July and
August 2014, a group of cross-party MPs decided to examine evidence on the nature of antisemitism
in the UK, with specific reference to the Middle East conflict and to consider measures to confront
it. They did so, in light of the previous all-party inquiry into antisemitism of 2006 which over the
previous decade had set a course for action that had led to the development and implementation
of successful national frameworks and local strategies to address anti-Jewish hatred. The report
contained 34 recommendations which were broadly grouped into five themes, namely: supporting
fellow citizens in words and deeds, holding a responsible public debate, intensifying interfaith
co-operation, modernising the fight against antisemitism and celebrating and communicating
successes. Fundamentally, the inquiry provided the new parliament and government with a plan
for action.
