An inquiry has been filed against students from Oxford University’s Labour Club for “poisonous” anti-Semitic behavior in the club, according to a report by The Sunday Times.

Labour Students, the national youth body of the political party, allegedly called Jewish students “Zios," sang a song about rockets over Tel Aviv and called Auschwitz “a cash cow.”

Furthermore, members of the club mocked victims and mourners of the 2015 terror attack on a Paris kosher supermarket, and condoned the attacks on synagogues in Paris in 2014.

However, the report on the scandal has yet to be published by the university, despite being completed more than 10 days ago, nor has any disciplinary action resulted from the allegations.

Indeed, Labour Students confirmed last week they had launched an inquiry after the head of Oxford University Labour Club (OULC) resigned, blaming rampant anti-Semitism within the students of the political left. 

'Losing faith' in the investigation

Numerous Jewish students have spoken out about their own harrowing experiences.

"The severe allegations of anti-Semitism in one of the most prestigious university Labour clubs in the country must be investigated properly, regardless of subsequent controversies within the party,” said Russel Langer, Campaigns Director of the Union of Jewish Students.

“It is absolutely appalling that the party is trying to cover this up. There has been a long and proud tradition of center-left Jews in the Labour party and that is being lost for a generation,” said another student.
