Meet David Watson of Walthamstow Labour

Meet David Watson, fund-raising co-ordinator for the Walthamstow Labour Party.

Mr Watson is a determined Corbynista. Core to the cause are innumerable Facebook and Twitter posts encouraging hatred of Israel.

This is how far it can go. Mr Watson comes across a website cheerily titled hangthebankers.com. He has found a web post with an intriguing title – “ISIS using weapons made in Israel”. That post calls on impeccable witnesses:

Questions about who is behind the Islamic State keep arising.

Iraqi volunteer forces, known as Hashid Shaabi, discovered Israeli-made weapons at Islamic State (ISIL) positions in the Iraqi province of Anbar on Thursday, according to Al-Mayadeen television, Fars News Agency reported.

Last month, it was reported that Iraqi counter-terrorism forces arrested four foreign military advisors from the United States and Israel, who were allegedly aiding ISIL.

Furthermore, in February, Wahhab al-Tayee, a senior Iraqi legislator, said the Israeli military was training ISIL in the Sinai Peninsula for terrorist operations in Egypt.

Iran’s senior advisor to the Supreme Leader, Ali Akbar Velayati, said that ISIL was created by the West and Israel to follow their interests in the Middle East:

“ISIL has actually been created by the western colonial powers and the Zionists, because whatever this terrorist group does runs counter to Islam and the rules of all Islamic sects.”

A quick glance around the site shows that it is for loony tunes conspiracy theorists. It features 9/11 and Mossad, the “New World Order”, and, of course, the Rothschilds.

So what does Mr Watson do? Pass the stupid and hateful lie on. Something to ponder, eh!

These days a proper Israel hater must equate the evil entity with Nazis. Here is Mr Watson doing his bit.

It is also important to come to the aid of fellows if they have a little trouble with the Zios. Tony Greenstein, for example. He’s lovely:

Labour admitted a previously barred activist who refers to his critics as “Zio idiots” and “Zionist scum”, and claimed that Jews supported the Nuremberg laws, it has emerged.

Evidence compiled by Labour’s compliance unit when Mr Greenstein attempted to join the party last summer, seen by The Telegraph, included his claims in online forums Margaret Thatcher was an “obviously legitimate” target for the IRA and that “Zionists collaborated with the Nazis”.

John Mann MP, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Committee into Anti-Semitism said that it was “hugely inappropriate” for Mr Greenstein to have been admitted to the Party.

So support him!

Why not back plain old yobs too? “Nice one”.

For Watson, “If Americans Knew” is a handy resource. It is the handiwork of the notorious antisemite Alison Weir.

And why not spread the USS Liberty myth beloved of far right American antisemites as well? This billboard is another project of Alison Weir.

One must proudly support Palestinian violence too. In this post Watson says he would “probably want to be a guerrilla fighter” if he were Palestinian. Furthermore, no one should criticise Palestinian violence.

After all, we’re looking at “genocide”.

And animals.

Why, there are even people who are vexed by incitement to murder Jews! The horror.

Mr Watson has found the right political home in the Labour Party of 2016.

UPDATE: Mr Watson has come out in support of Naz Shah. This evening. After her suspension from the party for antisemitism.

When will Mr Watson be suspended?
