The Labour Party conference (and being thrown out at another JVL event)

I am back down in Brighton for the Labour Party Conference. Credit were it is due – this is a very different conference from the ones I attended when Corbyn was leader. But it is also true that if you scratch the surface there are signs of serious trouble ahead. And as a reminder of how toxic the party can still be – I was … Continue reading The Labour Party conference (and being thrown out at another JVL event)

Project Wikipedia – meet the antisemitic and terrorist supporting editors

Radicalisation is defined as the ‘the action or process of causing someone to adopt radical positions on political or social issues’. Extremists know that they cannot easily enter the mainstream using traditional routes, but Wikipedia, one of the world’s most popular websites, has provided them with a direct voice into every home with online access. Editing Wikipedia, certainly at the high level needed to consistently … Continue reading Project Wikipedia – meet the antisemitic and terrorist supporting editors

Make no mistake – Wikipedia is at war with the Jews

Larry Sanger, the man who co-founded Wikipedia recently said that ‘nobody should trust Wikipedia.’ Sanger describes the Wikipedia environment – in which conservative voices are stifled or banned and criticism of leftist ideology – where the argument does appear – reads like a defence counsel’s brief. This is damning criticism from a man who would know better than most. But Sanger only gets part of … Continue reading Make no mistake – Wikipedia is at war with the Jews

‘the wrong sort of Jew’ – the left’s latest antisemitic conspiracy theory

I want to start with an exercise. Google the phrase ‘the wrong sort of Jew‘ (you can repeat the test replacing the word ‘sort’ with ‘kind‘ or ‘type‘.) Scanning the results from the first few pages, one thing becomes absolutely clear – this phrase is exclusively reserved for a hard-left attack against mainstream Jewry. In all of the examples on the pages there is a … Continue reading ‘the wrong sort of Jew’ – the left’s latest antisemitic conspiracy theory

orthodox fake news letter rabbi

The orthodox Rabbis, the letter and the offices that weren’t

Did you see the letter supposedly written by the Orthodox Rabbis supporting Jeremy Corbyn? This week has been full of drama. It started on Monday, when the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis wrote a scathing article about Jeremy Corbyn, claiming he is ‘not fit’ for high office. The Chief Rabbi was supported by the Archbishop of Canterbury and British Hindu leaders. The timing could not have … Continue reading The orthodox Rabbis, the letter and the offices that weren’t

CONFERENCE ANTISEMITISM

Two days before conference, JVL antisemitism at Jackie Walker event

This weekend the Labour Party Conference opens again in Brighton. I was there in 2017 the last time it was held in the town, and the level of antisemitism witnessed at the event led to threats to ban the party from holding future conferences there unless it tackles antisemitism. I find it difficult to believe how anyone left sane on this planet actually believes Labour … Continue reading Two days before conference, JVL antisemitism at Jackie Walker event

The Guardian newspaper: Decades of baiting British Jews

This week the Guardian published a letter that was co-produced by Elleanne Green, founder of Palestine Live. The letter was a defence of Chris Williamson and a denial of the antisemitism in the Labour Party. That in itself is a disgrace. But the Guardian’s issue with Jewish people and Israel extends back much further than Corbyn. Anyone researching antisemitism today knows that Corbyn is a … Continue reading The Guardian newspaper: Decades of baiting British Jews

PalExpo man spitting

Hate and poison wrapped in cotton candy at the PalExpo

The ‘PalExpo’ came back to London for 2019. A large, two day ‘celebration’ of Palestinian culture, history and arts. It is extremely clever marketing. In theory there is nothing wrong with Palestinians holding an exhibition of culture, but the show was built for a far more sinister purpose than teaching dabke. There are two parts to the PalExpo and whilst the main exhibition hall had … Continue reading Hate and poison wrapped in cotton candy at the PalExpo

Eyewitness account: Antisemitic hate walks through London once more

Yesterday in London I saw a few thousand people march down Regent Street, past Piccadilly and into Whitehall. All the usual faces were present, hard-core antisemites and Holocaust deniers leading a bunch of foolish sheep. They sang songs about destroying Israel through violence, they held aloft antisemitic signs and they gave antisemitic speeches. The only media that did report it, presented it as some type … Continue reading Eyewitness account: Antisemitic hate walks through London once more

Shaun Lawson smears Jews

Shaun Lawson smears Jewish anti-racists and lies about them

A few days ago, an *11500* word article was published on Medium. Titled ‘Enough is Enough: Rachel Riley, GnasherJew, and the Political Weaponisation of Antisemitism‘, it was written by ‘Shaun Lawson‘ and was quickly shared amongst many of the Corbyn hard-left support group. Everyone from Aaron Bastani to Owen Jones seems to have acknowledged it. The article does exactly what blogs like this are supposed … Continue reading Shaun Lawson smears Jewish anti-racists and lies about them

Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, swimming with the antisemites Last week, the anti-antisemitism ‘circus’ went to Manchester. This time with Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi and Ben Jamal as the headline acts (PDF of event flyer). By ‘circus’, I refer to public events (currently on national tour) put on by a handful of organisations, like ‘Jewish Voice for Labour’ (JVL), the ‘Palestine Solidarity Campaign’ (PSC) and ‘Labour against the Witch-hunt’. Events … Continue reading Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, swimming with the antisemites

Hate against Jewish people. A poison that spreads unnoticed

I had a difficult day on Tuesday. One of those days were I see the poison spread on London’s streets. I was at the Corbyn antisemitism demo /counter demo, that took place as the NEC discussed the adoption of the IHRA definition. There are plenty of political commentaries on the event (1,2,3,4) and I have never been one just to parrot what is said elsewhere. … Continue reading Hate against Jewish people.

British Jews slam

The dark clouds continue to gather for British Jews

Yesterday things took a darker turn for British Jews. Let us go back to Tuesday 26 April 2016, 7:53am. A Facebook post by Naz Shah emerges on the Guido Fawkes website. It is a post from 2014 suggesting that Israel should be “relocated” to America and praising the “transportation costs”. Within hours, other posts emerged, including one comparing Israel to the Nazis. By 13:30, Naz Shah … Continue reading The dark clouds continue to gather for British Jews

Attacking Jews, the whole antisemitism crisis, will ‘be positive for Labour’

Since the Palestine Live report was first published on this blog 6 weeks ago, the focus on antisemitism in the Labour Party has intensified. I am working on two related reports and continue to engage with the sewer where the antisemitism exists. ‘Labour Against the Witch Hunt’, the group set up by people like Jackie Walker and Tony Greenstein, along with ‘Jewish Voice for Labour’ … Continue reading Attacking Jews, the whole antisemitism crisis, will ‘be positive for Labour’

The Jewish community and Jeremy Corbyn are incompatible

Justin Cohen from Jewish News has just done the Jewish community an enormous favour. He has created a piece for the historical record. A detailed and to-the-point interview with Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in the midst of a crisis over antisemitism. All we needed to know about the man who wants to be Prime Minister is there for us to read. The conclusion is … Continue reading The Jewish community and Jeremy Corbyn are incompatible
