  • Finsbury Park attack anniversary: why as Jews we should stand against all forms of intolerance

    19 Jun 2018 by CST

    Today marks the anniversary of the Finsbury Park terrorist attack in London. Eight members of the Muslim community, who were gathered near to a mosque during Ramadan, were injured by a van driven by Darren Osborne, a far right sympathiser. One man, Makram Ali, was struck and later died at the scene. This horrific attack, perpetrated by an anti-Muslim terrorist, serves as a reminder of what bigotry, hatred and prejudice can lead to. As a Jewish community, we should stand against all forms of hatred against any minority communities.  

  • Antisemitism is well-defined already

    The academics and others who suggest a new definition of antisemitism (Letters, 16 June) ignore the existence of a perfectly good definition of antisemitism, adopted by the 31-member-state International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) in May 2016. This definition has since been adopted or endorsed by the UK, Scottish and Welsh governments, over 120 local authorities, several governments overseas and by the European Parliament. It is backed by all Britain’s mainstream Jewish community bodies and is fast becoming the standard non-legal guide as to what constitutes antisemitism.  

  • Al Quds Day demonstration

    This Sunday, CST’s security teams will work with the Metropolitan Police on one of the trickiest events in our annual calendar, the Quds Day demonstration. It is not a Jewish event. In fact, it is just about the exact opposite of a Jewish event. CST’s role will be to help secure those attending the Zionist Federation’s counter-protest against the Quds Day demonstration.
