An independent probe finds that the UK’s National Union of Students failed to protect Jewish members who were submitted to “numerous instances” of antisemitism in the union over the last decade, the Guardian reports.

The investigation finds multiple examples of Jewish students having been subjected to antisemitic bullying and ostracization within the NUS because of their faith and their views on Israel.

It also says that NUS’s internal procedures to deal with complaints were either inadequate or just ignored them.

According to the report the discrimination included “the employing of ancient antisemitic tropes, from blood libels to Rothschild conspiracies,” as well as holding Jewish students responsible for Israeli actions.
