    Jeremy Corbyn’s Brother Spreads Neo-Nazi Conspiracies

    This is a special by Lee Kern   For the past three years Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British Labour Party, has been embroiled in an antisemitism scandal. As a defence against these charges – Jeremy has frequently invoked the actions and values of his family as evidence of his stance on antisemitism – particularly his mother’s alleged participation at the Battle of Cable Street – a stand off between fascists and British Jews who were assisted by Irish residents and trade unionists. With this in mind we are invited by Jeremy to look at the actions of other family members – including his brother Piers Corbyn – a strong…

    Cannon to Right of Her, Cannon to Left of Her

    It’s been said that “To lose one Brexit Secretary may be regarded as a misfortune, to lose two looks like carelessness”, I just asked “Who’s Stephen Barclay?” Theresa May has recently gained respect across the political spectrum and her recently improved poll ratings are a testament to sheer dogged determination. I’m not going to discuss the ins and outs or rights and wrongs of her “deal” but I think she might, despite the naysayers, just get it through, although predictions, particularly about the future, are difficult. The Chequers “plan” seems like a lifetime ago but it was only in July, a little over four months ago, and, like Mark Twain,…

    It’s not just about Linda Sarsour’s “Minister Farrakhan controversy”

    A few months after the first Women’s March in January 2017, a Twitter contact sent me some material suggesting that the leadership of the hugely popular organization had a soft spot for Nation of Islam leader and veteran Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan. When I looked into the matter, it turned out that three of the most prominent Women’s March organizers – Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez – had indeed not been shy at all about advertising their admiration for Farrakahn on social media. They were also very proud about having been invited by Farrakhan to participate in a major 2015 event that was described as “a pageant for Farrakhan…

    Channel 4 News fails to challenge anti-Israel lies by Congresswoman-Elect Rashida Tlaib

    On Nov. 1st, Rashida Tlaib, who ran unopposed in her race to represent Michigan’s 17th district, become the nation’s first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress. Tlaib, whose mother was born in Ramallah, was initially endorsed by the far-left group J Street until, during media interviews conducted during the campaign, she contradicted her initial support for a two-state solution and came out instead for the Palestinian ‘right of return’ and a one-state solution.  As Ron Kampeas of JTA observed, when it comes to the one-state solution, Tlaib is even an outlier among the other two women elected to Congress on Nov. 1 with whom she is most frequently grouped, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.  Like…

    80th Anniversary of Kristallnacht

    Tonight we commemorate the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “night of broken glass”. That night, 9 November 1938, Nazi fury broke out against Jews throughout Germany and Austria — 92 were killed; 30,000 were seized and sent to concentration camps; 7,500 Jewish businesses were set on fire and destroyed. It was the most ominous sign of what was to come. But it had another dimension no less terrifying: 267 synagogues were burnt. Thousands of Torah scrolls, Judaism’s most sacred objects, were desecrated and thrown into the flames. Suddenly it became clear that the Nazis were intent not only on killing Jews. They sought to kill Judaism itself. They failed. The…

    Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s New Golden Girl Thinks White Helmets a Conspiracy and IDF Funds ISIS

    This weekend the Palestine Solidarity Campaign is holding a conference against Apartheid organised by a new staff member called Huda Ammori. Huda’s shared some interesting stuff on her Facebook. She shared a post referring to “3 Palestinian youth who were killed and executed in cold blood by the Zionists forces today in Jerusalem city.” In fact they were killed while carrying out a stabbing and shooting attack in Jerusalem where they killed one police officer and wounded six others. A knife is clearly visible in one photo and even Palestinian media reported that it was a terror attack (see below). The Palestine Information Centre reported: “Three Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli…

    Palestinian Chiefs Torture their own Citizens

    This is a cross post from The Zionist I often think about how hard it must be for Palestinians. On the one hand they have Israel’s security measures on the other they know a much harsher regime awaits were the IDF to leave the West Bank. With a dictatorship in waiting in the form of the Palestinian Authority and an Islamo-Fascist dictatorship as their Hamas opposition no one who understands the region can argue Palestinians will end up living in a democracy regardless of how things pan out with Israel. And now Human Rights Watch have released a report claiming the obvious; there is widespread use of torture by both the Palestinians…

    The Guardian’s Steve Bell demonises Zionists, smears Rabbi Sacks and exonerates Jeremy Corbyn

    This is a cross-post by Adam Levick from UK Media Watch The first thing you need to know about a recent cartoon by the Guardian’s Steve Bell (Donald Trump fires Jeremy Corbyn for rejecting his moral authority, Sept. 6) is that, despite the title, and likeness of the US president, Trump is partly a stand-in for another personality, former British Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. A clue to this graphic trick is found in the first frame, where Bell references Trump’s former role as host of the US television show, The Apprentice, but changes the network from NBC to BBC Radio 4, and the name of the show to ‘Apprentice Morality…

    QC says Israel created ‘to compensate for the Holocaust’

    This is a cross-post by Jonathan Hoffman It was at an event organised by the Palestine Return Centre in 2013 that Jeremy Corbyn suggested that Zionists “having lived in this country for a very long time, probably all their lives … don’t understand English irony”. I have never attended a PRC event where antisemitism has not run free. It was at a PRC event where Gerald Kaufman referred to ‘Jewish money‘ and at another where Jenny Tonge placed herself on the path to resignation/dismissal.  The former spokesman of the PRC, Sameh Habeeb, was dropped as a Labour council candidate earlier this year and suspended from the Party for alleged antisemitic remarks. Now…

    The Jewish Exodus which Corbyn ignores

    This is a cross post by Lyn Julius from the Jewish Chronicle Hardly a day goes by without another shocking revelation of Jeremy Corbyn’s association with antisemites. But while most of us recoil at Corbyn’s documented support for his “friends” Hamas and Hezbollah, his appearances on the Iranian-funded Press TV, and his tribute to the perpetrators of the Munich massacre, little has been said about the intellectual underpinnings of the ideological world-view that Corbyn has clung to for 40 years. It is time that they were debunked from a Sephardi or Mizrahi perspective. I doubt whether Corbyn has heard of Mizrahi or Sephardi Jews. Did he know that 850,000 Jewish…
