That #JeremyCorbyn has become a 'force for antisemitism in British politics' as Enoch Powell admirer #FrankField has stated is absurd. I don't agree with all #Corbyn says/does re the Middle East, but he is no Jew hater or believer in Jewish conspiracies. Here at a plaque ceremony
Here at a Chanukah celebration in his constituency
Here with Jewish Labour NEC member Rhea Wolfson, a strong supporter of @jeremycorbyn
Here with Rabbi Abraham Pinter
Here with anti-Zionist Jews of the small Naturei Karta sect. [ Many of the Ultra Orthodox Jewish sects do not support Israel on religious grounds and support Palestinians on moral grounds. ]
Here with Max Levitas, reknown East End Jewish anti-fascist and communist Cllr for Stepney at a Cable Street commemoration.
Here visiting Terezin ex-Concentraion Camp “The Terezin memorial is a vital reminder of the genocidal crimes carried out during the Second World War and the dangers that far-right politics, antisemitism and racist scapegoating pose to society,”
here Corbyn attended a Passover event put on by radical Jewish group Jewdas.
here speaking at a Jewish Labour Movement meeting. Actually he probably does hate JLM now how disgracefully some of them have targeted him
#Corbyn supports a Two State Solution and continuation of Jewish Faith Schools and ritual slaughter in the UK… Personally I think all kids should go to mixed schools at least 4 days a week! And I support Democratic Confederalism in Palestine in one state
He does not support blanket BDS, instead quite rightly and in no way antisemitically, support sanctions on the illegal building in the West Bank, so called 'targetted BDS', as he did with Apartheid South Africa.…
Corbyn has done more than any other party leader to attack racism and in this case antisemitism, of which there is a small amount on the conspiracy theory fringes of politics.
So to conclude the idea that @jeremycorbyn is a "force for antisemitism" is idiotic, offensive, ridiculous and from the mouths of so many of the current commentators only be seen as an attempt to undermine and smear Corbyn. Unfortunately for them it appears that this is failing.

#thread on @UKLabour NEC Code Conduct on #Antisemitism showing how opposition to it is wrong. Links from Dr Brian Klug, Moran Mandelbaum, David Feldman, Josh Nathan Kazis on Kenneth Stern, Rhea Wolfson, Jennie Formby and Jo Lansman
Firstly this is the NEC code here. Please read. It covers conspiracy theory antisemitism, the 'socialism of fools' and antisemitism masquerading as criticism of Israel. These are the issues that have crept into Labour from the conspiracy theory fringes.…
Jon Lansman @jonlansman states the new code is "Labour’s antisemitism code is the gold standard for political parties .. The new code makes clear that discrimination against Jewish people is unacceptable while allowing for legitimate criticism of Israel "…

thread; Great news @johnmcdonnellMP is boycotting RT and demanding the Left do too. There's a disturbing lack of ken how Russia is both supporting the European far-Right and manipulating the far-Left. It's simple. RT/Sputnik/Putin are our enemies as socialists. Proof? Read on...
Here is Putin and Russia supporting France's neo-fascist Front National. Blatent. "Putin’s smile couldn’t disguise the fact that Russia has financed Le Pen’s National Front party in the past"…
