A group of Jewish supporters of the newly elected – and controversial – president of the National Union of Students pushed back on Thursday against allegations of anti-Semitism.

Last week, Malia Bouattia's ascent to the presidency of the NUS was met with consternation from critics who cite past remarks she made about Zionists, including a reference to Birmingham University as "a Zionist outpost."

Bouattia, who is Muslim, became the first black woman to be elected president of the union.
