Anti-Semitism: Labour could face human rights probe - BBC News
The Equalities and Human Rights Commission said it was considering launching a formal investigation into anti-Semitism in the party.

The Labour Party said: "We completely reject any suggestion the party has acted unlawfully and will be co-operating fully with the EHRC."

The watchdog is asking the party to work with it to improve its processes.

Once the EHRC's formal letter is received by Labour, the party will have 14 days to respond to the concerns raised.

An Equality and Human Rights Commission spokesperson said: "Having received a number of complaints regarding anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, we believe Labour may have unlawfully discriminated against people because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs.

"Our concerns are sufficient for us to consider using our statutory enforcement powers.

"As set out in our enforcement policy, we are now engaging with the Labour Party to give them an opportunity to respond."

Hate-Speech in der Schule - "Demütigung ist wie körperliche Gewalt"
"Demütigung ist wie körperliche Gewalt" /// Erst im Netz, dann auf dem Schulhof: Beleidigungen, Drohungen und auch tätliche Angriffe nehmen zu, der Ton ist rauer und aggressiver, beklagen Lehrer wie Schüler. Es gibt einen Zusammenhang zwischen Hassreden und Gewalt - er beginnt im Gehirn. [...] Auf die Auswirkungen von Ausgrenzung und Demütigung auf unser Gehirn weist der Neurobiologe Joachim Bauer von der Uniklinik Freiburg und Autor des Buches "Schmerzgrenze" hin: Das Gehirn stufe verbale Gewalt wie körperlichen Schmerz ein. Wem die Anerkennung entzogen, wer systematisch niedergemacht und entwertet werde, werde irgendwann krank. Das Sprachzentrum und Netzwerke, wo Handlungen geplant werden, hingen eng zusammen - wo viel Hass-Sprache ist, dort erhöhe sich das Risiko, dass irgendwann auch zugeschlagen wird. //&! Extremismus
