Charlotte Church denies 'antisemitism' following chant at Palestine protest

The Welsh singer says she has been having difficult days after she lead a choir singing the verse of 'From the river to the sea".

The Campaign Against Antisemitism described it as a “genocidal chant” that calls for the destruction of the state of Israel, amid the on-going conflict between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas since October 7.

“To be honest, I hate the idea that anyone thinks that I am at all antisemitic or trying to make things more divisive, but I stand by everything we sang,” Church said on Novara Live.

“It was a deeply spiritual experience for me and I would do it again 100 times – and plan too.”

On Monday, the Campaign Against Antisemitism accused Church of encouraging hatred and called for the Charity Commission to investigate the incident.
