The decision to dismiss Ms Dallali follows an independent code-of-conduct investigation after allegations were made against her. The findings of a wider study into the NUS are yet to be published.

The Union of Jewish Students (UJS) said it “respects” the decision to dismiss Ms Dallali but the fact she had been elected in the first place was “a symptom of a wider problem” in the NUS.

Ms Dallali tweeted that she had found out about her dismissal through Twitter. This only further highlights the need for urgent reform within the NUS.

According to the UJS, the NUS has a “serious problem” with anti-Semitism. This is evident in the election of Ms Dallali as president, despite her clear bias against Jewish students.

The NUS must immediately address this issue and stamp out anti-Semitism within its ranks. Jewish students should feel safe and welcome within the NUS; anything less is unacceptable.

The NUS must do better in its handling of anti-Semitism allegations and in creating a safe and welcoming environment for all students, regardless of their background or beliefs. In addition, the NUS must work hard to rebuild trust with the Jewish community. Only then can it begin to repair the damage that has been done.
