The latest edition of the BBC’s flagship current-affairs program Panorama which investigated whether the Labour Party was antisemitic & thus entitled ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’, was presented by journalist John Ware & he’s a journalist who has form when it comes to producing hatchet job anti Corbyn hit pieces. During 2015’s Labour leadership election, John Ware presented an edition of Panorama which was nothing but a hatchet job of a hit piece against Jeremy Corbyn just as he was on the cusp of winning that leadership election. The latest ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama presented by John Ware is yet another hatchet job of a hit piece against Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party just as if had been produced by the propaganda division of the Israeli government. I did come away from watching the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama thinking either the Israeli government’s Department of Strategic Affairs & Public Diplomacy which ostensibly is the Israeli government’s propaganda division, had either given assistance in producing this hatchet job of a Panorama edition or the pro-Israeli government propaganda it propagates had a serious influence when it came the direction of spin this edition Panorama was conveying, the reason I thought this was that the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama had some of the same talking points which The Department For Strategic Affairs & Public Diplomacy propagates, such as Panorama implying the term is Zionist is a form of antisemitic abuse & irksomely implying criticism of the Israeli government is also a form of antisemitism, both of which this Jew disagrees are forms of antisemitism.
The ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama featured Jewish members of Labour & former Jewish Labour members (some of whom also had actually been party workers) speaking to camera giving accounts of antisemitic abuse they’d been subjected to within the Labour Party, some had indeed been subjected to antisemitism as in what antisemitism truly happens to be which is hatred of them being Jewish, but I do take issue with some of them implying & this particular edition of Panorama generally implying that the term ‘Zionist’ is term of antisemitic abuse. The argument is that Zionism is a substitute term for other derogatory terms which have been used by antisemitic bigots to describe Jewish people, however I disagree because what Zionism happens to be is a political ideology & you don’t have to be Jewish to identify as Zionist for instance both Tory slimeball Michael Gove & far-right criminal thug Tommy Robinson identify as Zionists & neither are Jewish.
The ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama did accurately describe what Zionism once was but suspiciously neglected to mention what Zionism has now become & why the left have an issue with what Zionism has become. Zionism was the political movement which led to the establishment of the state of Israel, this form of Zionism I’ve no problems with because for fucks sake if it hadn’t been for the establishment of Israel I’d not be here being as my father was Israeli, no seriously if I had been alive 100 or 90 years ago I’d certainly thrown my political weight behind the Zionist movement for a Jewish homeland as back then Jewish nationalist was about liberation from colonial powers, but here we are just over 70 years on from the establishment of the Israeli state & sadly Zionism has become something fascistically nasty which is why I & many on the political left now have a real issue with it. Zionism is better understood as a nationalist ideology which like other nationalist ideologies when they’ve drifted to the extremes of nationalist ideology, it has long begun to morph into something a kin to fascism with many of the warning signs of fascism, such as militarism, obsession with national security & rabid racism which includes treating other ethnic groups as inferior & scapegoating them for the nation’s problems, all of which is reflected when it comes Israeli government’s apartheid regime against the Palestinian people with all the human rights violations & the possible crimes against humanity which comes with the orchestration of such a racist system of governance.
Is criticising the British or US government racist? The answer is obviously it definitely fucking isn’t, so why does the Israeli government think it’s the fucking exception, well obviously this tactic is to try to circumvent criticism of the Israeli government’s apartheid policies against the Palestinian people by decrying criticism about its racist policies as ‘antisemitism’, the trouble is this doesn’t actually wash with most intelligent people, it only gets propagated by annoying bigoted uber Zionist gobshites. Anyways the Israeli government aren’t any special exception to not being criticised or challenged when it comes to its policies as it’s the democratic right of all people to challenge those in governments about how they are governing over us, it’s only fascists who think differently if they’re in charge of the government of any nation state & then all who are governed over by that government must swear blind unquestioning obedience to that government, I certainly don’t as yet think the Israeli government is fascist but I fear that’s the direction it’s currently travelling & Benjamin Netanyahu is definitely a fascist despot in the making.
What definitely is fascistic are those annoying bigoted uber Zionist gobshites such as conservative commentator Ben Shapiro who seem to think you’re not a ‘real Jew’ unless you do as they say which politically amounts to being prepared to suck the cock of Benjamin Netanyahu in appreciation for massacring tens upon tens of innocent Palestinian people, err who made these Zionist gobshites the arbiters of what isn’t & isn’t Jewish, oh I’m sure they’ll read this article & say I’m not a ‘real Jew’ despite the fact I’m just as Jewish as they are by the fact my mother was Jewish which has always been what determined you as a Jew, I’m Jewish get over it & stop telling me how I ought to be as somebody who’s Jewish because yeah that smacks of fascism to me, I’ll be Jewish how I damn well fucking please!
