The Left in Britain, as well as in the United States, has been growing increasingly anti-Israel and anti-Semitic, and now this throws down the gauntlet. Will Corbyn and Labour repudiate anti-Semitism and dedicate themselves sincerely to the defense of the Jewish community in the UK, or will they continue to embrace the growing Muslim community in the UK and endorse and validate its Qur’an-based Jew-hatred? The smart money is on their paying lip service to the former while doing the latter.
Jeremy Corbyn’s efforts to resolve the row over Labour antisemitism has suffered a major blow, after Britain’s three leading Jewish newspapers claimed a government led by him would pose an “existential threat to Jewish life” in the UK.
The unprecedented joint editorial on the front pages of the Jewish Chronicle, Jewish News and the Jewish Telegraph, accused Labour of showing “contempt for Jews and Israel”.
In particular it cited the party’s decision to adopt a “diluted” version of the International Holocaust Rememberance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism.
But as the crisis deepened on Thursday morning, Labour peer Melvyn Bragg accused Mr Corbyn of “feebleness” in tackling antisemitism within the party.
It marks a new low in relations with the Jewish community and follows a vow from Mr Corbyn’s spokesman to take action against a senior Labour MP who is said to have called Mr Corbyn an “antisemite” and “racist”.
Under the headline “United We Stand”, the three papers described Labour’s refusal to adopt in full the IHRA definition of antisemitism as “sinister”.
“We do so because the party that was, until recently, the natural home for our community has seen its values and integrity eroded by Corbynite contempt for Jews and Israel.
“The stain and shame of anti-Semitism has coursed through Her Majesty’s Opposition since Jeremy Corbyn became leader in 2015.”
In a direct attack on Mr Corbyn they express concern that “a man who has a problem seeing that hateful rhetoric aimed at Israel can easily step into anti-Semitism could be our next Prime Minister”….
