Hey look guys, these are @UKLabour @JeremyCorbyn’s “friends” in Gaza. You know, the people we Jews should be embracing. Cos they’re so very peaceful and open to cups of tea and discussions. 1/5 @UKLabour became the Party of Palestine because it’s such a central and major issue: it has to be sorted out. That’s the claim. Our sin is it’s all our British fault. Jews are colonialists. Broke out the flags at the Party Conference this September.

Spot the difference:
@Conservatives at their Conference promise the Jewish community their constant support. Soon to be banned: Iranian sponsored Hizbollah’s Al-Quds March. The Tories promote @TheIHRA definition of #Antisemitism and are true allies of #Jews in the #Uk 1/4 By contrast @UKLabour at their conference: sea of Palestinian flags. Bullying of Jews, @lucianaberger has to have a police escort (they even deny that!) and no balance, meetings denying antisemitism. This is @jeremycorbyn’s #LabourAntisemitism #CorbynAntisenitismOmnishambles 2/4

Ben is not Jewish but he’s decided to respond to @jk_rowling using his Jewish heritage and at the same time lying about what happens in the Middle East. I’m going to post My analysis if Ben’s posts as a thread, since this is the kind of nonsense giving #LabourAntisemitism cover From his surname, Ben is clearly the son of an Israeli man and a British non-Jewish woman. I’m assuming the latter, from Ben’s comment it seems that this is most likely; I’m sure he’ll correct me, should I be wrong. This is not a judgement of him, but an attempt to elucidate.

@RabbiZvi’s #LabourAntisemitism roundup:

It’s 5 months and a half since the first demonstration of the Jewish Community against @jeremycorbyn’s obvious antisemitism. How is it going?
This thread is a position document referencing #CorbynAntisemitismOmnishsmbles in @UKLabour
1/12 Corbyn has been outed as an obvious antisemite, sneering at Jews, laying a wreath on the grave of a Jew-killer, supporting a 9/11 conspiracist, calling Jew-killers brother and pedalling Israel conspiracy theories on @PressTV #CorbynAntisemitismOmnishambles 2/12

#Corbyn’s month:
August has seen @jeremycorbyn under increasing pressure due to his #antisemitism. It did not start well.

He kicked off August’s #Omnishambles with non-apology for his behaviour, inviting a Survivor on HMD to compare Israel to Nazis.

theguardian.com/politics/2018/… 1/n The day after this was revealed in the papers @MichaelSegalov (who apparently blocked me for pointing out his rather craven behaviour) said he should apologise nicely. Michael is not doing anyone any favours by his behaviour, @jeremycorbyn is a racist.

This troll of a union rep @EddieDempsey went on Sky to slag off @rabbisacks for being extreme right wing. He’s with the RMT, Rail Maritime and Transport Union. I wouldn’t trust him to drive a train on the tracks.

Here’s the video:#labourAntisemitism

1/9 That this racist thug thought that this was any kind of response is shocking. To the great consternation of my community we have seen the Leader of the Opposition outed as an antisemite. Yet all these supposed anti-racists in @UKLabour shout us down because alleged Tory slurs.2/9

It’s not about @jeremycorbyn


He’s merely a symptom of a mindset. It’s a peculiar infection of Far Left.

In this thread we shall be examining the nexus of racism and hypocrisy that allows people to trumpet their own alleged anti racism whilst being utterly racist.
Let’s start with @johnmcdonnellMP. He’s Jeremy’s comrade. But he joined with Jeremy to try to change @HMD_UK to be renamed “Genocide Memorial Day” in 2011. He hasn’t repudiated this idea, nor havevthe others who did it.

Corbyn’s principles:

Troll Jews using a Holocaust survivor on Holocaust Memorial Day.

Continue support of Holocaust denier for five years after his own PSC blacklisted him.

Set up a front for your own Jewish supporters so you kinky need listen to them. Ignore Jewish reps. 1/3 Corbyn’s Principles:

Condemn Antisemitism so that you are seen to believe that it’s not really serious or unusual.

Ignore supporters’ antisemitism or gently condemn it while slipping in justification in the firm of cibdrmnjnv Israel.

Issue an apology for hurt caused Jews. 2/3

Let’s just step back and examine what the @UKLabour #Antisemitism row is all about.

@jeremycorbyn ‘s groupies last night organised mass love-in for their idol. This was a feel-good diversion from the 💩storm of examples of his intolerance n antisemitism over the last weeks. 1/10 But @jeremycorbyn won’t get out of responsibility for his nastiness. He is a very unpleasant man.

On Holocaust Memorial Day 2010 he organised an event including a Holocaust survivor, designed to attack Israel using the Holocaust. Disgusting. amp.theguardian.com/politics/2018/… 2/10

Still a @ukLabour supporter? you are supporting an institutionally racist party. Let’s examine the evidence:
The leader is an antisemite because he used an event on Holocaust Memorial Day to attack Israel using one Jewish Holocaust survivor silencing others. 1/10 @JeremyCorbyn made a non-apology. He’s not sorry he’s antisemitism.

Still happy?

@johnmcdonnellMP yesterday appeared to be regretting Corbyn’s antisemitism.

They *both* tried to change Holocaust Memorial Day to be generic Anti-Discrimination Day. Both antisemitic. 2/10

The world against me and my chosen religion? The world *should* be against Israel?
Let’s deconstruct the gross far left antisemitic message of this particular bigot, and why it is hatred of Jews.

She confuses Judaism with Christianity. Judaism is not belief.

I did not choose to be Jewish. I was born a Jew. We are a distinct endogamous ethnicity and are recognized as such in English law.

My religion has indeed been persecuted, but it also has a racial dimension. 2/7

@JeremyCorbyn in real trouble. A conviction politician with utter ideological commitment he cannot lie about his actions. You won’t get him deviating from his line cos of this rigidity. So he is now destined to suffer a massive car crash over his past. @BBCr4today

1/11 His failure to adopt #IHRA full definition #antisemitism is due to his knowledge that this would catch him. He is too rigid to adopt it and then fail to implement it. He had to fiddle with it so that he could feel comfortable by allowing his own actions as not antisemitic. 2/11

The current focus of this row is designed by Labour to suggest that they have tackled the issue. This of course is not the case; Labour are trying to exculpate their own Members by defining out those aspects of antisemitism, which affect them most. 1/8 Notable therefore is the broad IHRA definition of #antisemitism, which is the gold standard. Adopted by 24 EU countries, this is the universally accepted definition. A total of 31 countries have so far accepted the broader definition, which tackles the political mutation. 2/8

The Labour Party has decided to fiddle around with its definition of #antisemitism in order to ensure that @jeremycorbyn’s friends are off the racism hook. They have rejected the standard IHRA terms, dismaying Jewish organizations and many of their own members. 1/7 This is indeed astounding, but quite understandable. Devoted Party Hack knows that things have gone badly wrong. However he cannot bring himself to admit the proble, thinks it can be saved. Many think it’s irredeemable.

They’re right. No way back.

A repeated lie in Israel/Palestine conflict is that Israel mass murders Palestinians/genocide/like Nazis. This is utter nonsense. Israel involved in an existential war with the evil Nazi supporters of Hamas, who wish to kill every Jew in the world: that’s their aim. 1/10 I have therefore provided several photos of the evil of the Holocaust from a book published by Daily Mail at the end of the War. These are very, very unpleasant. I nonetheless think it helps have concrete documented examples of what genocide is like to show the difference. 2/10
