Motion text

That this House notes the inaugural conference of the Inter-Parliamentary Coalition on Combating Anti-Semitism, the attendance of 125 parliamentarians from 40 different countries and the resulting London Declaration on Combating Anti-Semitism; believes that anti-Semitism is on the rise, and at the highest levels since records began in the 1980s; supports the recommendation that every country should have comprehensive hate crime legislation where anti-Semitism is treated equally as a racially or religiously motivated crime, incitement to hate laws and prosecutions of those hosting, unloading or commissioning hate on the internet within their jurisdiction; agrees that more should be done to tackle anti-Semitism on university campuses, ensure better reporting and to secure more convictions for the anti-Semitic hate crimes that take place; calls on all politicians to sign the London Declaration on Combating Anti-Semitism and for the Government working group to consider how Britain can best implement the Declaration; and calls for a Council of Ministers meeting on the issue of anti-Semitism.
