Prevent Review rightly pinpoints antisemitism as a common factor in extremist ideologies

Yesterday, the Government published the long-awaited Independent Review of Prevent by William Shawcross CVO. Our statement on the Report’s findings.

“The Prevent Review rightly identifies that extremist ideologies from across the spectrum are animated by deep-seated hateful ad conspiratorial views of Jews. It includes numerous examples of individuals whose intent was to blow up Jews, synagogues and Jewish institutions.

“We agree with the Review’s recommendation that Prevent must better understand and tackle antisemitism and those groups and ideological movements who target Jews and Jewish institutions – whatever their place on the political or ideological spectrum. We look forward to working with government and other institutions to improve understanding of these threats to society and working to build more robust safeguards against antisemitic hate and extremism.”
