UJS statement regarding allegations of antisemitism from NUS Presidential candidate

UJS is concerned to see the allegations made against Momin Saqib. To see yet another example of antisemitism within our student movement, especially from a candidate running for elected office is deeply troubling. The allegations over the treatment of Jewish students by Saqib are extremely alarming, and we are disappointed that this has only come to light so close to the NUS Presidential election.

Jewish voices will not be silenced, and Jewish students will not be intimidated.

In recent years we have seen antisemitism as a top story only too often, and this has got to stop.

On Monday we joined the wider Jewish community in demanding ‘enough is enough’ and that call rings even louder today.
