“I know how frightened some of the community is because of the divisive attitude of Sadiq Khan . . . we need to defeat him, particularly for our Jewish community”

Susan Hall, Conservative Candidate for Mayor of London, speaking at a Conservative Friends of Israel event

Facts

The Conservative candidate for Mayor of London Susan Hall told attendees at a Conservative Friends of Israel event that she knows “how frightened some of the community is because of the divisive attitude of Sadiq Khan . . . we need to defeat him, particularly for our Jewish community.”

The Jewish Labour Movement labelled Hall’s claim as “dog whistle politics” stating that “Sadiq has a record to be proud of in standing up for Jewish Londoners”.

In May 2016 Khan endorsed a pledge launched by the American Jewish Committee (AJC) to tackle anti-Semitism. 

On 9th October 2023, Khan said “there is no place for hatred, anti-Semitism or incitement in London,” promising to respond to incidents with the “full force of the police”. 

Verdict

Dishonest sectarian politics from Susan Hall.
