The Board Of Deputies & The Labour Leadership Election

Comedian & Actor Sacha Baron Cohen recently gave a speech at an Anti-Defamation League event in which he accused social-media firms such as Facebook & YouTube & Twitter of helping to amplify antisemitic hate, I happen to agree with every point made by Sacha Baron Cohen in the speech he gave at the Anti-Defamation League’s recent Never Is Now Summit, as this Jew has certainly witnessed for themselves a deluge of antisemitic hate via social-media & this includes having frequently seen antisemitic posts on Facebook groups orientated towards supporting Labour & Jeremy Corbyn.

I’ve always argued that those posting antisemitic shite on Facebook groups in support of Labour & Jeremy Corbyn might not necessarily be paid up members of the Labour Party & might in fact be trolls wanting to do damage to the Labour Party, of course the argument then follows about it being the responsibility of the admin of those groups supposedly set up in support of the Labour Party & Jeremy Corbyn to delete posts which are antisemitic & to ban whoever is posting antisemitic shite from those groups, but again nobody can be certain if those groups created on Facebook genuinely have the intent in being supportive of Labour & Jeremy Corbyn, one presumes the genuine intention of those groups being created is to support Labour & Jeremy Corbyn is to give support to Jeremy Corbyn & Labour, but the internet affords bigots & trolls a great deal of anonymity & there are many nefarious people in this world who have nefarious agendas & come up with ever inventive ways to push those nefarious agendas.

I’m not getting all Moulder & Scully or all Alex Jones, I’m not suggesting that Mossad are running some clandestine troll farm south of Jerusalem with the specific mission to smear the fuck out of Jeremy Corbyn & Labour as antisemitic on Twitter or Facebook, what I’m saying is never take anything at face value. It’s more then likely that those groups created on Facebook in support of Labour & Jeremy Corbyn probably were created with the genuine intention to support Labour & Jeremy Corbyn & the vast majority of Facebook users posting on those groups are either Labour Party members or at the very least are supporters of the Labour Party, which means the general response being posted on various Facebook groups about all the candidates who are contesting the current Labour leadership election to take over from Jeremy Corbyn signing up to the 10 pledges put forward by the British Board of Deputies to stamp out antisemitism within the party has made for some uncomfortable reading even for this Jew who has their own serious contentions with some of what the British Board of Deputies are asking of Labour.

Overall I don’t think what the British Board of Deputies are asking Labour to implement is too much of the party as a means of restoring confidence amongst Jewish people that Labour is tackling antisemitism within the party, because though I’ve fiercely defended Jeremy Corbyn against accusations that he himself is antisemitic I’ve never denied there isn’t an issue with antisemitism within the Labour Party & I’ll admit so far the Labour leadership hasn’t done nearly enough to tackle the issue of antisemitism within the party. But I do have some serious contentions in regards to #6 & number #8 on the list of pledges the British Board of Deputies has asked the Labour Party to sign up to as means of proving its serious about stamping out antisemitism.

Pledge #8 To engage with the Jewish community via its main representative groups & not through fringe organisations

For those who might not know there are currently two groups representing Jewish opinion within Labour, the Jewish Labour Movement which is pro Zionist which has links to the current Israeli government & Jewish Voice For Labour which is anti Zionist & opposes the current Israeli government, the Jewish Labour Movement have opposed Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party by going as far as to publicly refusing to campaign for Labour during the 2019 General Election whereas Jewish Voice For Labour are a breakaway group from the Jewish Labour Movement of those Jews who do support Jeremy Corbyn. It’s obvious to me when Board of Deputies state that Labour must engage with the Jewish community via its main representative groups & not through fringe organisations this is aimed at the likes of Jewish Voice For Labour, err who the fuck are the British Board of Deputies to say which Jewish group is fringe or mainstream, which Jewish opinion is legitimate & which Jewish opinion is illegitimate, there’s no one homogenised opinion amongst us Jews we are an argumentative bunch who’ve been arguing & arguing amongst ourselves for millennia & in my opinion that’s no bad thing.

Pledge #6 full adoption of the IHRA definition of antisemitism with all its examples & clauses and without any caveats

The definition of antisemitism should simply be hatred of Jews for being Jews, so accusing the Israeli government of being murdering scumbags isn’t antisemitic but accusing the Jewish people collectively of being murdering scumbags is most certainly antisemitic. The serious contention I personally have with the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of Antisemitism is that in around about way it’s classing criticism of the state of Israel to be antisemitic which indeed it is as Israel is the Jewish state but most people use government & state as interchangeable terms to mean the same thing as not everybody is a political scientist or a smartarse like myself who understands the differences in the legal definitions between state & government, so somebody could be criticising the state of Israel when they mean the Israeli government & be unfairly condemned as being antisemitic no matter how legitimate their criticism might have been. There is a fear with the adoption of the IHRA definition of antisemitism smacks of wanting to circumvent or curtail any criticism of controversial policies being enacted by the current Israeli government in particular the orchestration of an Apartheid system victimising the Palestinian people, we must by all necessary means protect the fundamental democratic right of all peoples to challenge those who govern over us because if we lose that right then we well on truly on the slippery slope towards fascism.

The general consensus of disquiet amongst Labour activists in response to all candidates contesting the current Labour leadership election signing up to the British Board of Deputies 10 pledges to stamp out antisemitism within Labour has been “they’ve all sold out to Zionism”. There have been accusations in the past that the British Board of Deputies was too pro-Israeli & to which my response is yes & so what, okay if the British Board of Deputies are being overtly supportive of the Israeli government & that government instituting overtly racist policies then that’s something I’d be extremely critical of them doing, but one can have love for a country but at the same time not necessarily have love for the government of that country. I’ve never had any issue with the legitimacy of the state of Israel, my issue has always been purely about the racist policies towards the Palestinian people being pursued by Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud government, but from what I’ve recently seen being posted by a myriad of Labour activists & leftwing activist has made me begin to wonder if those critics who say antisemitism is rife within the party aren’t right an example being substituting the word Jew with the word Zionist & disputing the legitimacy of the right of the Israeli state to exist.

When I talk of being anti Zionist I’m talking about contemporary Zionism, Benjamin Netanyahu’s brand of Zionism which is decidedly fascistic in nature, rampant nationalism, obsession with national security, supremacy of the military, distain for human rights, scapegoating ethnic minorities for the problems of the nation state, religion & government intertwined, etc. I’m not opposed to the original intention of Zionism (in fact I’m very much such supportive of it) which was for there to be a Jewish homeland & the Holocaust precipitating the need for the establishment of the state of Israel, but I’m well aware there are Labour & leftwing activists who indeed dispute the legitimacy of the state of Israel & thinking if anybody who makes the most moderate of defences of the legitimacy of the state of Israel to exist has their tongue well & truly shoved up the arse of Benjamin Netanyahu.

I know full well there are Labour & leftwing activists who have labelled the British Board of Deputies as ‘Zionist’ not because that organisation is pro-Israeli but merely because it’s a Jewish organisation, I think whoever is eventually elected Labour leader in early April has an uphill struggle in combatting antisemitism within the party. Considering all that’s happened over the past few years, it was inevitable those candidates contesting the Labour leadership election were going sign up to the Board of Deputies 10 pledges without question & I think whoever does replace Jeremy Corbyn as party leader might very be making a Kinnock like speech to conference in regards to antisemites within the party, yes you remember that speech, it’s the one speech everybody remembers Kinnock making as Labour leader, the speech about Militant tendency at the ’85 Labour Party annual conference. Whoever takes over from Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader needs far more forceful then he has been in stamping out antisemitism within the party, because unless they’re seen to be doing so then Labour will not return to government.

The Chief Rabbi Does Not Speak For All Jews

Do you know what Tommy Robinson & the Chief Rabbi have in common? They’re both uber Zionists who seem to have no moral qualms when it comes to the Israeli government committing ethnic cleansing against the Palestinian people & they’ve both one way or another endorsed Boris Johnson to be re-elected Prime Minister.

Ephraim Mirvis

The Chief Rabbi has launched what the mainstream news media are describing as a scathing attack upon Jeremy Corbyn & Labour in an article published by Times newspaper, it’s obvious to me by writing ‘a new poison sanctioned from the very top has taken root in the party the Chief Rabbi is attempting to once more smear Jeremy Corbyn as antisemitic & to write ‘the overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety’ is an attempt to stoke fear amongst Jews against Labour. Okay none of what the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis wrote is a ringing endorsement of Boris Johnson, however it’s clear he doesn’t want Jews voting Labour & in the not too distant past he’s had some very nice things to say about Boris Johnson.

Ephraim Mirvis as Chief Rabbi seems oh so friendly & supportive of Boris Johnson a man who’s a known racist & who’s supported by known racists such as Tommy Robinson, he seems to be okay with being supportive of the Tories who whilst in government have killed tens of thousands of disabled people yet when anybody criticises the Israeli Defence Force killing innocent Palestinians he will immediately accuse them of being antisemitic.

I’m a Jew who weirdly doesn’t feel at all anxious about Jeremy Corbyn possibly being elected Prime Minister in just over two weeks, geez I must be a turkey voting for Christmas, a seriously fucked up Jew voting to be sent to the gas chambers, oh no wait the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis doesn’t actually speak for me as a Jew because the CHIEF RABBI DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ALL JEWS!

The mainstream news media this morning were all over The Times article penned by Ephraim Mirvis & there was a whole parade of politicians & Jewish pundits willing to lambast Jeremy Corbyn as an antisemite, err where were the Jewish voices who support Jeremy Corbyn in the mainstream media this morning to defend Jeremy because you know there are actually quite few of us, ah right the mainstream news only wants to push the narrative that Corbyn & Labour are antisemitic & fuck you to anybody who might disrupt that narrative because the mainstream news media no longer do serious journalism they now only ever push propaganda. For fucks sake Mirvis’s article in The Times was a fucking hatchet job, I mean the Times is a paper which is known to have a reputation for rabid Tory bias particularly as its part of the evil empire which we know as the Murdoch media empire & of course we are amidst a General Election campaign, yeah more then coincidence that Mirvis’s article was published in The Times the same day as Labour are due to launch the party’s race & faith manifesto.

Jews Who Support Corbyn Also Receive Antisemitic Abuse (No Thanks To Rachel Riley)

Rachel Riley has rightly been getting a tsunami of grief for having posted a selfie of herself wearing a T-shirt with a photoshopped image of Jeremy Corbyn being arrested for protesting the racist Apartheid regime in South Africa replacing the original words of ‘Defend the right to demonstrate against Apartheid join this picket’ upon the placard Jeremy was holding at the time with ‘Jeremy Corbyn is a racist endeavour’, so essentially Riley has manipulated a photo of Jeremy Corbyn campaigning against the then Apartheid regime in South Africa to make out he’s a racist & makes out he’s a racist whilst not condemning the current Israeli government’s apartheid against the Palestinian people, plus has it occurred to Rachel how offensive this is to those who were persecuted & killed by the Apartheid regime in South Africa as well as those who fought alongside Jeremy Corbyn against that horrifically racist regime which included Jews such as myself who also happens to originally be from South Africa.

Who the fuck elected Rachel Riley the spokesperson for British Jews & witchfinder general against antisemitism, err nofuckingbody that’s fucking who, (drumroll) Rachel Riley DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ALL BRITISH JEWS she certainly does not speak for me as Jewish person living in Britain. I certainly wouldn’t want any Jew to speak up supposedly on my behalf of me as a Jewish person who goes about smearing those who were fighting racism before she was born & never condemns the crimes of the Israeli government. Actually why is it those who constantly smear Jeremy Corbyn & Labour as antisemitic are never challenged to condemn the crimes of the Israeli government, you see I’m equally fed up as fuck by there being a procession of pundits & politicians & who the fuck ever else appearing in the mainstream news media propagating bullshit smears about Jeremy Corbyn being antisemitic as I’m about any of these people not being challenged to condemn the Israeli government’s crimes against the Palestinians because lets remember whilst some cunt is posing for a selfie wearing a slanderous T-shirt innocent Palestinian people are being persecuted & killed.

After Rachel Riley’s latest stunt which by slandering Jeremy Corbyn as racist also insulted victims of racism, there’s now a campaign to have Rachel Riley sacked from her job as a co-presenter of Channel 4’s Countdown show, yeah she should get fired so rather then nefariously be a propaganda spokesperson for Netanyahu’s fascistic Zionist government, she can actually get hired upfront Netanyahu’s fascistic Zionist government & actually have to defend ethnic cleansing if not full on genocidal policies against the Palestinians.

I’m not saying antisemitism isn’t an increasing issue, I’m no stranger to receiving antisemitic abuse via social-media, yes that’s right Jews who support Jeremy Corbyn also receive antisemitic abuse no fucking thanks to Rachel Riley.

I did challenge Rachel Riley to condemn the antisemitism Corbyn supporters such as myself receive.

Weirdly Riley hasn’t gotten back to me in condemning the antisemitic abuse those Jews who like myself support Corbyn receive, proving she definitely doesn’t speak for all Jews, I mean if she’s appointed herself witchfinder-general against antisemitism then shouldn’t she be campaigning against all forms of antisemitism.

Zionist Yair Netanyahu’s Support For Tommy Robinson

So yesterday there were Pride events in Manchester & with much celebration for the love of diversity & great to see there was a vocal trans presence in Cardiff, whereas in central London there was yet another ‘Free Tommy’ protest which was the accompanied with the usual rhetoric of hate & brooding intimidation you come to expect from knuckle-dragging gammon Tommy Robinson fanboys.

Oh give it up with the ‘Free Tommy’ bullshit protests, because I bet yesterday Antifa activists outnumbered racist gammon Tommy Robinson fanboys by 3 to 1 as has consistently happened whenever there’s been some bullshit ‘Free Tommy’ protest since Tommy had his arse slung in jail last month & anyways what’s the fucking point when the fascist scumbag is going to be released from prison within weeks.

Tommy Robinson

Indeed Tommy Robinson will be released from prison soon enough, thus I’m sure he’ll be just as free to further whip up hate & intolerance as he was before being chucked in prison for contempt-of-court, I’m sure he’ll be just as free to in double quick time get back to grifting for pounds & dollars spinning bullshit yarns about how he’s in fact the victim in all this despite his antics last year outside Leeds Crown nearly collapsing one of the largest trials in British legal history brought against a grooming gang which could have resulted in some seriously evil child abusers walk free from court & bullshit untruths about when he was locked up he was targeted Jihadi rape gangs despite the Prison Service wouldn’t be doing their job if they hadn’t kept Tommy Robinson segregated from Muslim inmates who no doubt would like to beat the shit out of him for all the racist shite he’s continuously spewed about Muslims. If Tommy Robinson has been allowed to be targeted by Muslim inmates whilst in prison as I’m sure he’ll claim upon his release then this would a dereliction of duty regarding the wellbeing of prisoners which would be grounds to bring suit against the Prison Service, but I doubt any gammon Tommy Robinson fanboy will be challenging him to sue the Prison Service when he claims as I’m sure he’ll claim that when locked up he was targeted by Muslim inmates, because of being ignorant racist gammon they’ll just lap up any bullshit Tommy Robinson peddles them & donate funds to him to continue peddling bullshit which they can’t afford to give in the first place.

Other then the usual archetypical poorly educated racist gammon who are the way they are due having been shat upon from a great height by neoliberal capitalism, it might appear to be something of a surprise that the son of Israeli Prime Minister would be posting tweets in support of Tommy Robinson, but in fact it’s no surprise to me that Yair Netanyahu would be pledging support for a fascist scumbag thug like Tommy Robison, as he has previously pledged support via Twitter for other European far-right douchebags, because support for the far-right is very much inline with the Contemporary Zionist ideology of Yair & his father Benjamin Netanyahu.

Whatever leftwing support there once was for what Zionism might have been, it’s what contemporary Zionism has become which is of relevance & what contemporary Zionism happens to be is best understood as being just as odious as any other far-right nationalistic ideology espousing the same old far-right bullshit that one ethnic group is superior then other ethnic groups & thus treating other ethnic groups as inferior & scapegoating them for the nation’s problems, all of which is of course reflected with the Israeli government’s apartheid regime against the Palestinian people. It just so happens that the majority of the Palestinian people are Muslims, so no wonder Tommy Robinson has proclaimed himself a Zionist & a friend of the current Israeli government being as he’s Islamophobic as fuck, which in turn has Tommy being funded by uber Zionist far-right think-tanks such as the Middle East forum & having the son of the Israeli Prime Minister pledging support for Tommy Robinson.

I’m sure one of the objectives of Yair Netanyahu supporting Tommy Robinson & other far-right scumbags such as Nigel Farage is a ploy to disrupt the UK political establishment because the across the party divide of the UK political establishment you’ll find political figures questioning & challenging the racist policies of the Israeli government, it’s not just Jeremy Corbyn & Labour who have issues with Israeli government’s treatment of the Palestinian people, believe me tI know many Tories & Lib Dems who also have deep concerns about the Israeli government’s treatment of the Palestinian people, which of course Yair Netanyahu & his father Benjamin definitely can’t be having that. They much prefer supporting the far-right who see Muslims as the great Satan & thus gets them support in continuing to victimise Palestinians.

The Untruths Panorama Told About Ella Rose & Jackie Walker

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.

Ella Rose on Panorama

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.

Jackie Walker

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.

This Jew Says No The Term ‘Zionist’ Isn’t An Antisemitic Slur As BBC Panorama Implied It Was

John Ware

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!

The Problem I’ve Had Writing About The ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ Edition Of Panorama

I’ve been struggling for the last 24 hours to write about the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama which the BBC aired on Wednesday evening & It’s not as if I’m suffering from writer’s block or scared of failing to live up to the expectation to deliver an article on a issue which people know is very much my forte.

The problem I’ve been having with writing about the latest edition of Panorama investigating whether the Labour Party is antisemitic, comes despite my immediate reaction having watched it when I tweeted that the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama was a hatchet job of a hit piece against Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party which smacked of either having assistance from the propaganda division of the Israeli government or being influenced by the kind of propaganda they propagated & which in response to I’ve been repeatedly called a ‘Jew hater’ & an ‘antisemite’ & having my own Jewishness doubted by bigoted Zionist bigots.

As for actual core problem I’ve had in writing about the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama, well its due to it containing 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 of the details of the kind of antisemitic abuse they’d been subjected was indeed unadulterated hatred of them being Jewish, for fucks sake I’m Jewish & a fucking human being thus sensitive to hurt they were obviously expressing but at the same time I found myself taking issue with some of these accounts as well as in general with this edition of Panorama implying that Zionist is a form antisemitic abuse along with criticising the Israeli government & well the trouble has been I’ve not wanted to come over as a clumsy insensitive cunt motherfucker in taking issue with any of the accounts of antisemitism which with my personal antizionist Jewish perspective I might not consider necessarily antisemitic particularly as some of those speaking to camera on this edition of Panorama have suffered mental health problems due to the antisemitic abuse they’ve been subjected to.

I’m often criticised for being insensitive when in fact I’m far more sensitive than some might think, but as a friend of mine said in encouraging me to write this, you’re never going to strike the ‘right balance’ when writing about a subject such as the Israeli/Palestinian conflicted as I’ve been trying to do (obviously in vain), you’re always going to fuck somebody off when writing about this very subject considering both sides in the argument are so polarised, how fucking true don’t I just know it, oh how fucking true don’t I just know it from the grief I get from bigoted Zionist dickheads about not being a ‘Real Jew’ as I won’t suck the cock of Benjamin Netanyahu in applause for murdering tens upon tens of innocent Palestinians.

Why Is It You Never Hear My Perspective In The Mainstream Media About Labour & Antisemitism

I no longer think Jay Raynor is full of shit purely because he’s a food critic continuously indulging in food snobbery whilst an increasing number of people in this country are suffering from malnutrition & having to rely upon food banks, but because a few days ago he was accusing a Labour supporting Twitter user of antisemitism because they happened to be blocking Jay’s own Twitter account & well the below screenshot of the Twitter profile page of @LabLeftVoice illustrates why it is Jay’s full of shit by accusing them of being antisemitic

Like Jay I to am Jewish & well @LabLeftVoice doesn’t block me but in fact follows me on Twitter, I’m not sure as to reason why they blocked Jay but it’s my understanding Labour Left Voice are themselves Jewish, regardless of the argument of how the fuck can you accuse a Jew of antisemitism as it’s basically accusing them of being anti themselves, just because a Twitter user blocks your own Twitter account doesn’t mean they’re being Antisemitic because you happen to be Jewish, for fucks sake I don’t accuse my former mentor Natacha Kennedy of disablism because she blocks me on Twitter due to our relationship becoming strained due to various autistic related problems I’ve had.

Oh sure there are the likes of Ben Shapiro & Joseph Cohen, who are uber Zionist bigots as far as I’m concerned as they propagate the bullshit that unless you live how they think Jews should live then you’re not a ‘real’ Jew & you’re an antisemite if you’re not doing anything short of sucking the cock of Benjamin Netanyahu for having the Israeli Defence Forces massacre tens upon tens of innocent Palestinians, oh & then there’s Katie Hopkins a different brand of bigot but another bigot who’d gladly suck Benjamin Netanyahu’s cock for killing innocent Palestinians, Hopkins is the most vile of vile bigoted cunts & she’s been wading into the bullshit accusations about Labour Left Voice being antisemitic, yeah as if you’re going to take seriously the opinion of fascistic hate-preacher on the issue of antisemitism err me definitely thinks not & nor when it comes to Labour & antisemitism would I take her opinion seriously nor the opinion of Netanyahu who she’d gladly give oral pleasure to for being a long way down the track of fascist in the making.

Let’s be honest that this latest social-media bullshit with Jay Raynor accusing a Labour supporting Twitter user of antisemitism is just part of the far larger maelstrom concerning the Labour Party & Antisemitism ever since Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader in 2015. I think I’m endangering myself incurring a serious repetitive strain injury from all the fucking times I’ve had to repeatedly type over the past four years, Jeremy Corbyn is not Antisemitic, Jeremy Corbyn is not Antisemitic, Jeremy Corbyn is not Antisemitic!

I’m Jewish & If I thought in the slightest that Jeremy Corbyn or the Labour Party were institutionally Antisemitic then I’d not have supported Jeremy Corbyn nor the Labour Party as much as I have, it’s not as if I’m prepared to call out supposed lefties for being Antisemitic dicks because I did so just the other week in regards George Galloway, however I don’t think antiracist activist Jackie Walker is antisemitic as many have accused her of being, I think it was unfair for Labour to have suspended National Executive member Peter Willsman for alleging the Israeli embassy have been behind the antisemitic smears against the Labour Party when there is actual documented evidence to back up his allegations. You never actually hear my perspective in the mainstream media about Labour & antisemitism, yes there’s Jewish Voice For Labour which is the Jewish antizionist group within Labour & they do their best to combat & dispel the bullshit smears that Jeremy Corbyn is antisemitic & antisemitism is rife within the party, however I often feel anytime a Jewish Voice For Labour spokesperson appears in the mainstream media any opinion they put forward very much maligned, plus I seriously doubt anybody from Jewish Voice For Labour would go as far as I’m about to go in stating the true nature surrounding where the majority of Antisemitism supposedly being expressed by Labour Party members that being via social-media.

I’ve never denied there are antisemitic opinions being expressed on social-media by what might appear to be Labour Party members or supporters, I’ve witnessed what I can only describe as antisemitic bullshit by what might appear to be Labour members & supporters, the vast majority of which has been on Facebook groups set up in support of Jeremy Corbyn & Labour, from unadulterated racism towards Gal Gadot due to her simply being Israeli, to conspiracy theories about Jews controlling the global economy as if has been ripped word for pages of The Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion which is an infamous antisemitic diatribe, yes I’ve seen plenty of antisemitic shite being expressed by what appears to be Jeremy Corbyn & Labour supporters on Labour orientated Facebook groups, but I nor anybody can be sure any of this antisemitic shite is being posted by bonafide Labour Party members nor genuine Jeremy Corbyn supporters, neither can anybody be for sure these Facebook groups set up in support of Jeremy Corbyn are managed by actual paid up Labour Party members.

I spotted a few weeks back this antisemitic post on Facebook group in support of Jeremy Corbyn

This is definite antisemitism considering all the politicians pictured are Jewish & asking why are they involved with the UK politics & attempting to make the very racist point that Jews have no business in UK politics & I presume should fuck off to Israel, luckily this post was pretty promptly removed from the Facebook group which it was posted on. I was actually suspicious from the off about the above antisemitic post, for starters Neville Tea seems to be a made-up name & the post looks as if was written by somebody who’s first language isn’t English & one of the politicians pictured is Luciana Berger who in fact left the Labour Party several months ago.

I’ve every sympathy for Luciana Berger leaving Labour due to the deluge of Antisemitic abuse she was subjected to whilst a Labour MP & she’s not been the only Jewish Labour who’s been subject to a deluge of antisemitic abuse, Ruth Smeeth MP has had to have a special police detachment deployed to protect her after she received death threats via social-media from an individual claiming to be a Jeremy Corbyn supporter, but who’s to know if that individual was actually a genuine Jeremy Corbyn supporter & not an agent or bot who’s a product of a troll farm operated by those interests seriously fearful of a Jeremy Corbyn led Labour government.

I’m not saying every antisemitic post made on social-media nor every threat of violence made to Jewish politicians originates from some Russian troll farm or a troll farm in Tel Aviv, before anybody says I’ve gone fully all Alex Jones, I don’t know where death threats via social-media to a Jewish Labour MP or every antisemitic post Facebook originates, but unlike the mainstream media I don’t just take it as read that some antisemitic shite blurted by somebody claiming to be a Labour member or supporter is necessarily a Labour member or supporter, because what I do know is there are some very wealthy & powerful interests shitting themselves at the prospect of a Jeremy Corbyn Labour government being elected thus ushering in long overdue socialist reforms & they’ll use any nefarious means to prevent that from happening.  

Yes George Galloway You Are Being A Racist Dick

Though I don’t generally do articles by request, but understandably because I’m Jewish, a friend has asked me if I would write about George Galloway being sacked from talkRADIO for allegedly posting an antisemitic tweet & whether I consider what George Galloway posted to be antisemitic as they weren’t sure it was.

I actually share with George Galloway a lifelong allegiance to Celtic F.C & I’m sure Galloway would be just as livid as I would be if Celtic had failed to win a particular piece of silverware & fascistic Rangers supporters had tweeted there wouldn’t be any Irish tricolours hanging from that particular trophy because there are Rangers supporters who seem to think all Celtic supporters waving the Irish tricolour are IRA terrorist supporting Fenian bastards.

In my opinion what Galloway tweeted was racist, but whether it’s specifically antisemitic depends on whether you consider Israel to be the Jewish state, yes many Jews do consider Israel to be the Jewish state, however technically Israel is in fact a secular state & it’s not just Jews who are full-fledged Israeli citizens.

I do consider what Galloway posted to be racist & he conformed it in his interview on Good Morning Britain when he said the Israeli flag is a symbol of apartheid, so essentially Galloway is saying anybody who waves the Israeli flag supports the Israeli government’s persecution of the Palestinian people, talk about a frigging generalisation then some, has it occurred to Galloway there might be many Israeli citizens who despite strongly disagreeing with the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right Likud led government are still proud to be Israeli & the Star Of David is just as much part of their identity as it is for any uber Zionist bigot.

racist dick!

Displaying the Israeli flag isn’t the same as displaying a Swastika flag or what use to be the official South African flag during the Apartheid era which was specifically racist in the embolism it displayed, sure uber Zionist bigots have certainly hijacked the Israeli flag, but haven’t the far-right attempted to do likewise here in Britain with the Union Jack & the Star-Spangled-Banner in the United States, is Galloway going to claim anybody in Britain displaying the Union Jack is a far-right extremist & supports Tommy Robinson, is Galloway going to claim any American displaying the Star-Spangled-Banner supports Donald Trump & his Trumpism brand of fascism.

I certainly appreciate the strength of feeling Galloway expresses about apartheid regime the current Israeli government are orchestrating against the Palestinian people & I’ve certainly expressed similar strength of feeling about the persecution of the Palestinian people in articles I posted on Medium, but it’s the Israeli government at fault not football fans at a cup final waving the Israeli flag nor is it every Israeli citizen or every Jew who displays the Star Of David, I mean yesterday when I was at the anti-Trump protest in London I met a fellow Jew who was wearing a Star Of David kippah & who was just much of the rest of us shouting in opposition of the Israeli government’s apartheid persecution of the Palestinian people, so yeah George Galloway fuck off with your sweeping racist generalisations.

My Message To the LGBTQ Community About Eurovision

Me & the late great Anthony Bourdain have something in common, neither one of us have ever had any great love for ABBA, it’s not that I particularly hate them or anything, it’s that I just find them rather bland & boring, as for the reason I mention this well this weekend is the Eurovision Song Contest & of course ABBA are the biggest musical act to have ever won Eurovision, but as with ABBA I can’t say I’m any particular fan of Eurovision in fact I’d generally describe it as utter shite, so as you might imagine I don’t tend to watch any of the television coverage of the event & I certainly won’t be watching any this year & I don’t think any LGBTQ person should be either.

Okay I might be failing when it comes to ticking the checkbox list of LGBTQ stereotypes, I don’t like ABBA, I think Eurovision is shite & I’ve never drunk a pink daiquiris, however I do realise that Eurovision is big with many LGBTQ people, just surfing the posts of LGBTQ friends on Facebook I can see it is, however I don’t think LGBTQ friends of mine nor LGBTQ folk in general should be participating in anything to do with Eurovision this year if they care about equality & diversity for all, because Eurovision is being staged in Israel who’s government is operating an apartheid regime against a large section of the population.

Netta: Israel’s 2018 Eurovision Song Contest Winner

Because the Israeli entry in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest won, Israel gets to stage this year’s contest, at least its being staged in Tel Aviv not East Jerusalem as was first rumoured as that would have been a another fuck you adding insult to injury staging the contest on extremely disputed land which the Israeli military has annexed contravening international law, but the bottom line is it’s still being held in a country whose government is operating an apartheid regime against the Palestinian people & I’d go as far as saying is orchestrating out & out ethnic fucking cleansing! Israel’s entry in last year’s Eurovision was ironically an anti-bullying song sung by a body positive singer, but this is very typical of the Israeli establishment/government, they like to pose as all so ‘progressive’ whilst treating Palestinian people as worse than second class citizens.

The Israeli army likes to brag it’s the most pro vegan army in the world, yeah but being a vegan doesn’t stop you from massacring Palestinian protesters & conducting ethnic cleansing, I know some people might be thinking around about a particular former German despot & his diet, I’m not going there & it’s irrelevant to what I’m saying here, what I’m saying is the Israeli establishment/government will say hey look we are really ethical & progressive in the way we feed our soldiers but neglect to mention that Israeli soldiers are not so ethical when it comes to massacring Palestinians, it’s the same when it comes to LGBTQ rights.

It’s true to say that Israel is far better when it comes to LGBTQ rights then any of the countries surrounding it, where in some of those countries if you’re LGBTQ you’d be put to death, LGBTQ rights in Israel are comparative to countries in Western Europe & Israel is on par when it specifically comes to the rights of trans people, however same-sex-marriage-marriage is only recognised if the couple get hitched outside Israel, in other words same-sex-marriage is still not permitted within Israel nor is it likely to be because the Likud government is now relying on support from far-right religious conservative politicians who’s electoral base are the kind of religious conservative nutcases who have violently protested LGBTQ-Pride marches which have been held in Israel.

Pinkwashing is an apt term to describe the Israeli government & LGBTQ rights, it essentially means the Israeli government want you to applaud it for being progressive on LGBTQ in the hope you forget the Israeli government’s fuck awful treatment of the Palestinians. Uber Zionist bigots love to tell me how rabidly homophobic Palestinians happen to be, but how rabidly homophobic the attitudes of Palestinians happen be or not be isn’t my primary concern & its not an excuse for the Israeli government’s state sponsored discrimination against Palestinians for well being Palestinians. My primary concern is Palestinians are being discriminated for being Palestinians & this should be the concern of anyone who’s LGBTQ, remember it wasn’t so long ago here in Britain it was perfectly legal to openly discriminate against LGBTQ people & we did not like that it was & well Palestinians are generally experiencing far worse

I started this article mentioning the late great Anthony Bourdain & I will close with a quote of his when having visited Israel & the West Bank “The world has visited many terrible things on the Palestinian people, none more shameful than robbing them of their basic humanity”
