Salman Abu Sitta is set to deliver a seminar at the University in November.
According to the International Definition of Antisemitism, “Making mendacious, dehumanising, demonising, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions” is an example of antisemitism.
Additionally, Mr Sitta referred to the antisemitic former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn as “a great, honourable man”, who was “unseated” by “the enemy” after they used their “money” and “political influence”.
Mr Sitta’s comments, which were captured on video, were unearthed and uploaded to Twitter on Monday.
The University has adopted the Definition in full, including all of its examples.
