    Nazi Terror Attack Against a Synagogue in Pennsylvania

    According to CNN 11 people were murdered during a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Our hearts go out to the families. We truly are living through some dark times. From CNN: Eleven people were killed in a shooting Saturday morning at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, according to officials. Six people were wounded, Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said, four of whom were police officers who responded to the scene. No children were among the dead, he said. A city official have previously told CNN 10 people were killed. Law enforcement officials told CNN the suspect has been identified as 46-year-old Robert Bowers, and that the…

    Let’s Raise Money for Matthew!

    The Jewish Chronicle reports: A Jewish lawyer has been fined £1,750 and ordered to undergo diversity training for saying an anti-Israel campaign group accused of hounding a Jewish businessman were “scummy racists.” Matthew Berlow, a solicitor based in Glasgow, was responding to a Facebook event organised by the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign (SPSC) to protest against the sale of Dead Sea products in an Aberdeen shopping centre. “You simply found a soft Jewish target to aim your bile at,” Mr Berlow told the group, also calling them “scummy racists, bullies and cowards.” This strikes me as a gross injustice, for reasons that hardly need to be communicated. Though I will add that this…

    Jewdas: Attacking antisemitism is participating in “Class Oppression”

    It’s always nice to take a look at the Jewdas website. You get to read articles like their latest: Philosemitism is the New Antisemitism: How Jews Are (Still) Used to Manage Exploitation or to translate it into English, liking Jews is the new antisemitism. Note the thrust of the article: “I’ll spell it out: whereas before antisemitism was encouraged in order to direct the public’s attention away from its exploitation, today antisemitism is vilified in order to divert public support away from the best chance for better living than we’ve had in decades.” Which begs the question, encouraged by whom? We’re slipping quite neatly into a conspiracist world view now where the same people pulling the…

    Trump Popular with British Far Right Too and James Thring

    It’s worth noting that Trump isn’t just popular with the Far Right in the States he’s pretty popular with the Far Right in the UK too. Here’s Jez Bedford Turner, currently in prison, talking lovingly about him. This was from a meeting of the London Forum that James Thring spoke at. Here’s a slide from Thring’s talk. Do you think it looks more like a Far Right talk or a Far Left one?

    Why Corbyn Will Win

    Howard Jacobson’s speech in a debate about Corbyn has been doing the rounds. It is witty and has Corbs bang to rights but there’s a line in there which made it clear to me why Corbyn is likely to become Prime Minister and also why he has found broad appeal. Note this paragraph (emphasis mine): To persist in a small erroneousness is the mark of a fool. To persist in a great erroneousness is the mark of a dangerous fool. The ideology in which Corbyn has been pickled for half a century was outworn by the time it reached him. It oversaw the death of millions.  That the ideologies he opposes have scarcely…

    Press TV’s Roshan Salih films no confidence vote against Joan Ryan

    The execrable Salih, editor of the Islamist site 5pillars, managed a near impossible feat earlier this year – he made Ken Livingstone appear almost measured.  Livingstone was invited on to Salih’s Press TV show – held on Holocaust Memorial Day – to discuss the question: ‘Has the Holocaust been exploited to oppress others?’. At one point Salih actually said: “I don’t know whether 6 million, or 4 million died or 2 million died.” Last night this vile character was invited into the Enfield CLP meeting which saw MP and LFI Chair Joan Ryan narrowly lose a vote of no confidence.  Here he filmed it for his employers, Press TV, banned…

    Corbynista Andrew Murray and Hezbollah

    It is easy to see why Andrew Murray has been welcomed to Jeremy Corbyn’s inner circle. He is a fanatical Israel hater. Consider a scene from London in July 2006, when Murray, Corbyn, far left agitators and Islamists marched to protest against Israel’s bid to defend itself against Hezbollah. Excited, Murray reads a message from Hezbollah to a cheering crowd. It is addressed to “our friends from around the world” from the “freedom fighters of Hezbollah”. Unity! Listen for yourself. Explicit support for Hezbollah was right out in the open at this demonstration. The poor old Socialist Party was somewhat disgruntled: However, left-wing leading members of the Stop the War…

    No Solidarity with the Jews Kehinde?

    The former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks has waded into the antisemitism crisis between Labour and the Jewish community, in an interview with the New Statesman, he said that: “The recently disclosed remarks by Jeremy Corbyn are the most offensive statement made by a senior British politician since Enoch Powell’s 1968 ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech. It was divisive, hateful and like Powell’s speech it undermines the existence of an entire group of British citizens by depicting them as essentially alien.” Kehinde Andrews made some excellent critical points about this statement, which he referred to as “hyperbole” adding that: Britain has a serious problem with racism in politics, and the unfortunate truth…
