Jewish power in Britain: Social media users who spread racial hatred should be banned from sites such as Twitter and Facebook, MPs say
The All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into anti-Semitism wants prosecutors to examine whether prevention orders like those used to restrict sex offenders' Internet access could be used. The cross-party group also highlighted the use of anti-Semitic terms online. A Community Security Trust report said that British anti-Semitic incidents more than doubled to 1,168 in 2014. The trust - which monitors anti-Semitism in Britain - says that this was its highest figure recorded since it began work in 1984. The Parliamentary inquiry was set up following a rise in incidents in July and August of 2014 during fighting between Gaza and Israel. Although the primary focus of the inquiry was anti-Semitism, one recommendation that it made was that those who carry out any kind of hate crime should be prevented from using social media. Hate crimes are defined in England and Wales as offenses carried against someone because of their disability, gender identity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation and can include harassment. The MPs said that social media platforms had "increasingly been used for the spread of anti-Semitism". Of course, the Jews will always use the term "anti-Semitism" to include all criticism of their anti-gentile activities. Like the Muslims, Jews are ultimately the enemies of free speech and freedom of thought.
