France adopts resolution equating 'anti-Zionism' with 'antisemitism'

France's parliament voted late on Tuesday to adopt a definition of anti-semitism that includes anti-Zionism, prompting anger from activists who believe it will restrict legitimate criticisms of Israel.

French lawmakers adopted the controversial bill, which was tabled by Paris MP Sylvain Maillard from Emmanuel Macron's La Republique en Marche centrist party, with 154 votes against 72.

The resolution adopts the definition issued by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), which states that some criticism of Israel could be anti-semitic.
