Racial hatred
Don't engage in Jew-baiting

These laws may be relevant when a local authority, university, student's union or society, uses or permits the use of words or behaviour which incite hatred of Jews, perhaps through the use of blood libels against Israeli Jews.

Part III of the Public Order Act 1986 provides for offences involving racial hatred.

They all require -

  • the use of threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour
  • the intention or likelihood that racial hatred will be stirred up.

Racial hatred means hatred against a group of persons defined by reference to colour, race, nationality or citizenship, or ethnic or national origins.
