Is there a Vaccine Against Antisemitic Jewbaiting (contd)?

Incredibly fourteen more MPs have signed Nadia Whittome’s antisemitic Jewbaiting EDM (I blogged yesterday about it).

Let’s look at the 27 MPs who have signed.

Only 8 signed Ann McDonagh MP’s letter to the Chinese Ambassador expressing outrage about China’s treatment of the Uighur Muslims.

16 of the 27 have a history of antisemitism (including support for antisemites) or of gross Israel-bashing.

17 of them have proportions of Muslim constituents above the national average of 4.5%
