Abstract

This paper considers the deployment of 'Holocaust Inversion' - the provocative comparison between the brutal and genocidal Nazi treatment of the Jews with the policies and practices of the Israeli state towards the Palestinians - by Members of Parliament, with particular focus on the (former) Liberal Democrat MP for Bradford East, David Ward. Ward is used as a case study in an attempt to understand why Holocaust inversion, despite evidence that it is an aggravating factor in racial incitement against Britain's Jews, is practiced by MPs and why it is tolerated by their party political leaders.
