Motion text

That this House notes that in recent days a wave of anti-Semitic incidents have affected the Jewish community; further notes that one synagogue has suffered an arson attack and many others have been defaced; further notes that Jewish community organisations have faced a barrage of threatening and abusive emails and telephone calls; further notes that while there have been thankfully few physical attacks on Jewish people many Jews report having been verbally abused and threatened; further notes in addition extremist demands for terrorist attacks against Jews and Jewish children around the world; calls on the Government and civil society to assiduously assure every community that they will not tolerate attacks, abuse or hostility aimed towards Jews, Muslims or anyone else on the pretext of the ongoing situation in Gaza; and calls on all democrats to join together to ensure that the United Kingdom is a place where debate and protest are peaceful and lawful, and communities are free to live, practise and worship without fear or intimidation.
