As anti-Semitism seeps from the fringe to the poisoned heart of the Labour Party the real fascists today are on the Left

Eleven years ago, I wrote a Saturday essay in this newspaper exposing a virulent new strain of anti-Semitism. It was based on what I had discovered while making a documentary for Channel 4, called The War On Britain’s Jews?

My thesis was that while the far-Right hadn’t gone away, most of the hostility towards the Jewish community was coming from an unholy alliance between those I dubbed the Fascist Left and Islamist fanatics.

I’ve returned to the subject occasionally over the past decade, as anti-Semitism has seeped from the political fringe to the poisoned heart of the Labour Party.
