Motion text

That this House congratulates Jewish News on its investigation into the use of Facebook to promote anti-Semitism; notes the posting of graphic details of anti-Semitic incidents perpetrated by members of the Facebook group launched by a student at Loxford School of Science and Technology, expressed in the most foul and abusive language; is appalled by the casual way that the youths responsible display their anti-Semitism; further notes that these revelations have come to light at a time when the Community Security Trust has published figures showing 924 anti-Semitic incidents during 2009, more than in any other year since records began in 1984; and calls on the Secretaries of State for Children, Schools and Families and Business, Innovation and Skills to investigate these incidents and the use of Facebook generally to promote messages of hate, and to report to Parliament on their conclusions.
