Fraser Amos has been accused of anti-semitism following his retweet
Fraser Amos, the chair of Warwick Labour, has been accused of anti-semitism after retweeting a tweet describing the establishment of Israel as a "racist endeavour".
Under the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) guidelines for anti-semitism, it is considered anti-Semitic to deny the Jewish people their right to self-determination, for example by claiming that "the existence of Israel is a racist endeavour".
Fraser has defended his actions, saying the backlash towards him "undermines the fight against anti-semitism in the party".
Fraser, who was elected as the chair of Warwick Labour in March this year, has openly condemned anti-semitism within the Labour Party.
In 2017, he also gave a speech at the Labour Party Conference in 2017.
Last academic year, Fraser was involved in a homophobia scandal after he tweeted that it is not homophobic to assume that all gay people must be left wing.
Fraser Amos has been approached for comment.
