The fallout from last week’s ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama has continued unabated in the mainstream news media, with just about every Labour MP who’s appeared on any current-affairs or political talk show being confronted to give their reaction to the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama since it aired on BBC1 last Wednesday.
If any Labour MP or grassroots Labour Party member were to respond to the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama by saying it inaccurate & unbalance hatchet job which had a preconceived biased narrative against Labour then they’d be correct, If any Labour MP or grassroots Labour Party member were to respond that those who Panorama interviewed to reinforce this edition’s preconceived biased narrative were just disaffected Labour Party members who have political axes to grind well this is never truer then with Ella Rose.
Al Jazeera a couple of years back produced an undercover documentary investigation into orchestrated attempts by Israeli embassy to interfere in British democracy with particular focus upon the links various embassy officials have with the Jewish Labour Movement Labour Movement (JLM). At the time Al Jazeera conducted its undercover investigation into links between the Israeli embassy & the Jewish Labour Movement, Ella Rose was a director of JLM & she was seen to be complicit along with others involved with the leadership of the JLM getting assistance from the Israeli embassy in an attempt to push a an decidedly prozionist agenda, Ella Rose was in fact filming having something of a hissy fit when an online news site revealed prior she had worked at the Israeli embassy prior to her involvement with the JLM & claiming she was being victimised by some elaborate ‘antisemitic agenda/conspiracy’ despite it being true that she had essentially been an Israeli government operative, what is more disturbing is that she was later filmed ostensibly threatening to kill journalist Asa Winstanley who was the one who published the revelation she had been an Israeli government operative as well as threatening to physically assault antiracist activist & then Momentum vice-chair Jackie Walker.
I’ve never denied there isn’t an issue with antisemitism within the Labour Party & any Labour Party member should automatically not be a Labour Party member if they’re spouting off hateful shite like Hitler was right about the Jews or denying the Holocaust ever happened or posting memes on social-media about the Jews controlling the world economy, but also no Labour Party member should be able to remain a Labour Party member if they’re going to threaten violence against other party member which Ella Rose did with both Asa Winstanley & Jackie Walker, actually it should be the police who investigate such threats made not Labour’s disciplinary unit as such threats are in fact fucking illegal.
Weirdly suspicious how the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama neglected to mention that Ella Rose had been featured in a previous journalistic investigation as being a former Israeli government operative who’s been involved with the Israeli embassy in assisting the Jewish Labour Movement to push a decidedly prozionist agenda & that she had been filmed threatening physical violence against people who at that time were fellow members of the Labour Party, but to have done so would have meant anything she had been seen to have said being extremely fucking suspect & not have fitted in the biased narrative which Panorama was trying to spin against Jeremy Corbyn & Labour as if it were the propaganda propagated by Israeli government’s Department of Strategic Affairs & Public Diplomacy (the Israeli government’s propaganda division).
There are many Jewish members of the Labour Party as well as Jewish supports of Labour (including myself) who don’t agree with the Jewish Labour Movement’s prozionist/anti-Corbyn agenda, but of course Panorama made no mention of this or interviewed any members of Jewish Voice For Labour an organisation within the Labour Party which came about as a protest by Jewish Labour Party members against the JLM’s prozionist/anti-Corbyn position & wanting an alternative Jewish voice within Labour which was antizionist & pro Jeremy Corbyn. because yep this wouldn’t have been in keeping of biased narrative Panorama was attempting to spin, it would have proven the bullshit Panorama was propagating that antizionism equates to antisemitism to be the bullshit lie which it is, it was Panorama propagating the lie that antizionism equates to antisemitism which had been my biggest gripe with the program & I’ve already written a lengthy article going into detail as to why this was my biggest gripe with the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama.
So there was no mention by Panorama that Ella Rose had been caught on camera threatening to assault antiracist activist & former Momentum vice-chair Jackie Walker, but of course there was plenty of mention in the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama regarding Jackie having been a few moths ago expelled from the Labour. The expulsion of Jackie Walker from the Labour Party for comments about Jews & Israel fitted in well with the biased narrative Panorama was spinning, despite it being well documented those comments having been taken wildly out of fucking context, despite the fact Jackie has had the likes of Jewish Voice For Labour & other Jewish voices on the political left (including my own) continuously & steadfastly defending her against the accusations she’s antisemitic, despite the fact that one of those who was interviewed by Panorama told an outright lie about when they worked within the Labour Party’s disciplinary unit they had interviewed Jackie as part of the investigation into the complaint against her when in fact they’ve never ever fucking met Jackie in any compacity, oh & one small but kind of important detail which Panorama neglected to mention was that Jackie was prohibited from speaking in her defence at the disciplinary hearing which decided upon her expulsion from the Labour Party.
I’d not say I agree with everything Jackie says, but she’s a friend & if I thought she was antisemitic then she’d not be a friend.
Panorama suggested the reason complaints of antisemitism have been on the increase since Jeremy Corbyn was elected party leader was due to there having been an influx into the Labour Party from the radical-left attracted by Jeremy Corbyn’s firebrand socialist politics. I’d agree that complaints of antisemitism within the Labour Party have dramatically increased since Jeremy Corbyn became party leader, but not necessarily due to people on the radical-left being ignorant in not knowing the difference between the rhetoric of antisemitism with what’s in fact antisemitic abuse though I don’t deny there might be an element of this going on, personally I think the reason there’s been a massive increase in complaints since Jeremy Corbyn became leader is due to a concerted prozionist campaign because Jeremy Corbyn is greatest champion for Palestinian justice there’s been as Labour leader thus loudest critic to be Labour leader of the apartheid regime against the Palestinian people being orchestrated by the current Israeli government, Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn scares prozionist interests shitless as it would mean no more British weapons to massacre innocent Palestinians & possibly wide ranging economic sanctions against the Israeli government for it’s continuous human rights violations against the Palestinian people & if a country as prestigious as Britain did such a thing it would set a precedent which other western nations might follow.
