Jewish Voice for Labour’s Glyn Secker says “Jews who place Israel at the core of their being” are an “obscenity”
A senior Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL) official has said that “Jews who place Israel at the core of their being” are an “obscenity”.
In footage published by the Jewish News, Glyn Secker, the Secretary of JVL, can appear to be heard making the remarks in his speech at a protest this week organised by Stop The War, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Friends of Al Aqsa.
In his recent report, Martin Forde QC ludicrously suggested that JVL, an antisemitism-denial group and sham Jewish representative organisation, should have a role in antisemitism education in the Labour Party, of which JVL is still, outrageously, considered a legitimate faction.
In the past, Mr Secker has said that Jewish organisations are “in the gutter” and “part of the problem”, among other inflammatory comments.
Young Labour Chair Jess Barnard also spoke at the protest.
Campaign Against Antisemitism’s Antisemitism Barometer 2019 showed that antisemitism on the far-left of British politics has surpassed that of the far-right.
Campaign Against Antisemitism advocates for zero tolerance of antisemitism in public life. To that end we monitor all political parties and strive to ensure that any cases of concern are properly addressed.
