The Independent: The announcement was not heralded, headlined nor trumpeted. But a European Union agency this week officially dropped its “working definition” of anti-Semitism, adopted in 2005.

What damages credibility is seeking to equate criticism of bad behaviour by a powerful political entity to the daubing of swastikas and desecration of graves. Hats off to the FRA for standing up for the fundamental rights known as free speech and freedom of the press – and for setting me free too…
