European Parliament calls on members to adopt Israel-related definition of antisemitism

The European Jewish Press reports that the European Parliament has adopted a resolution calling on all member states to adopt a definition of anti-Semitism that contains Israel-centric items.

The resolution was adopted at its plenary session in Brussels and officially endorses the International Holocaust Remembrance Association’s (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism. The definition consists of a synopsis followed by guidelines that include Israel related items originally created by an Israeli governmental minister in 2003. This formulation has since been disseminated around the world.

Israeli soldiers invaded, Wednesday, Shu’fat refugee camp, north of occupied East Jerusalem, and broke into a home before forcing a mother and her toddler out of their property, leaving them under the sun for more than ninety minutes.

Media sources in the refugee camp said dozens of soldiers invaded it, before many soldiers broke into a home belonging to Houshiyya family, and forced a mother and her toddler out of their property.

The soldiers kept the mother and her toddler under the sun, without even allowing them access to water, or a change of clothing for the child, while searching their property for ninety minutes.

The soldiers did not abduct or detain any Palestinian during the invasion, and gave no reason for invading the Palestinian home, and forcing the mother and her toddler out.

In addition, the soldiers abducted four Palestinians from Qalandia refugee camp, north of Jerusalem, following many hours of invasions and violent searches of dozens of homes, leading to clashes with local youths.

On Wednesday at dawn, the soldiers abducted four Palestinians in the West Bank governorates of Hebron and Tubas, after invading their homes and searching them, and confiscated solar panels, in the West Bank’s northern plains.

Also on Wednesday, the soldiers invaded Palestinian communities in the northern West Bank governorate of Nablus, stormed and searched several homes, and stores, and abducted seven Palestinians.
