Theresa has worked extensively to combat anti-Semitism, working with the police and organisations such as the Community Security Trust. She has repeatedly spoken up in support of the state of Israel, and has been a member of Conservative Friends of Israel for many years.
She opposes boycott campaigns and has urged the Government to take action to ensure that UK aid to the Palestinian authority is not misused and diverted to support payments to terrorists. In Parliament and outside, she has called on Labour and the Liberal Democrats to condemn antisemitism in politics.
She has raised this issue in Prime Minister's Questions; she spoke in the two very moving debates in Parliament on anti-Semitism; and attended both the rallies organised by the Jewish community in Parliament Square to protest against antisemitism in Labour.
