153 - Antisemitism in the UK

December 05, 2019

Are things as problematic as they seem to be in the UK? How did Jeremy Corbyn become leader of the Labour party? Why are they accused of (at least) tolerating antisemitism? Why was the Chief Rabbi speaking out so shocking? What will happen if Labour wins? What is they lose? Alan and Mike get a thorough briefing from Arieh Kovler. Join us!


Arieh Kovler is a Jerusalem-based politics and communications expert, and a writer and commentator on global politics. Before his aliya he was the Head of Policy and Research at the UK's Jewish Leadership Council and the founding director of the anti-boycott Fair Play Campaign Group. Arieh was a steering committee member of the Global Coalition for Israel and has advised the Israeli government.
