Yet another inquiry on anti-semitism

Totally Jewish and, presumably its print version, Jewish News, report that there is to be yet another inquiry on anti-semitism.
John Mann MP, the newly elected chairman of the Parliamentary Committee against Anti-Semitism, told delegates that the group’s inquiry would see MPs and peers scrutinising the government's actions in relation to the growing scourge.
"What growing scourge?" you might ask. Consider the fact that "demonisation of Israel" is now part of an official EU definition of anti-semitism and then consider the fact that the EU hasn't actually defined the term "demonisation" and you get some idea of what these "inquiries" are aimed at. They are aimed at defending Israel from legitimate criticism. These Parliamentary buffoons seem determined to make anti-semitism respectable.
