Board of Deputies President warns Bristol University about ‘increasingly hysterical attacks’ on Jews by Miller

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has warned Bristol University to act against the “increasingly hysterical attacks” on UK Jewish groups by sociology professor David Miller.

In a letter to Vice Chancellor Professor Hugh Brady, Marie van der Zyl said that Miller’s “increasingly hysterical attacks on British Jewish organisations are now raising the prospect of real physical harm.”

She added that some of his rants “would not look out of place on the pages of Der Stürmer”, the propaganda newspaper of Nazi Germany.
