Still A Bit Pregnant

This is a guest post by Paul M
The wellspring of left-antisemitism is the far left’s unhinged and reckless anti-Zionism. This is not a controversial statement. At least, it will be controversial to only two groups: people who defend Corbyn at any cost and people hell-bent on preserving their right to demonise Israel. Unfortunately for Corbyn, [...]

Dogwhistle insinuations attract 2000 ‘likes’ from Corbyn supporters

A disturbingly conspiratorial message posted on the ‘We Support Jeremy Corbyn’ Facebook page has attracted enthusiastic support from many of his fans.
This open letter suggested that powerful forces were at work behind Thursday’s well supported demonstration against antisemitism.

Revealingly, the writer, with apparent complete unawareness of any irony or contradiction, places her faith in JC to [...]

Setting the record straight about Jeremy Corbyn’s “peace process” lie

This post from May 2016 has been republished to shed some light on Jeremy Corbyn’s shameless dissembling in an interview with Jewish News earlier today.
Jeremy Corbyn must stop telling his “peace process” lie.
He resorted to it today yet again, in Parliament:
The points he [Cameron] was making earlier relate to a discussion I was hosting in [...]

Jeremy Corbyn’s Support, Admiration, Love, and Respect for Violent Antisemites

What should one say about a horde of violent antisemites?
This one, for example. It’s a scene from the “Gaza flotilla” of 2010. On board the Mavi Marmara, the lead vessel, men eagerly awaiting their chance to bash Jews chant “Khaybar”, the ancient battle cry so beloved today by the worst of the worst.

I can’t be there but perhaps some of you can be.

Corbyn’s Form on Russia and Poison

Jeremy Corbyn’s abysmal response to the Salisbury poison attack has been widely criticised, including by Labour MPs. And rightly so.
It is, however, no surprise at all. In fact, it is entirely true to form.
Look back to 2013. In March of that year, the brutal Syrian regime was accused of launching chemical warfare [...]

A Nest of Lies

The story of When Corbyn Met Sarkocy, a Czech spy, during the Cold War has been seized on with glee by the usual press, plus the anti-Corbynites.  My own thoughts are:- 1) Corbyn was a back-bench MP and unlikely to know anything except the price of a cup of tea in the House of Commons [...]

Tony Greenstein expelled from Labour

After some speculation, it has finally been confirmed that Tony Greenstein has been expelled from the Labour Party; he was found to have breached party rules on three counts. The Jewish Labour Movement welcomed this move:

You can read more about the background to Greenstein’s expulsion here.
Greenstein is – or was – a leading figure in [...]

Corbyn on Iran – Crooked Talking, Dishonest Politics

Many people think politicians are sleazy liars.
Jeremy Corbyn would like you to believe that he is different. So would his followers.
Making The Case For Iran
The rest of us are going to take some convincing, to say the least. All the more so, Mr Corbyn, after we saw you on TV earlier today with [...]

The shortlisted Labour candidate who shared antisemitic memes

Michelle Harris has been shortlisted to stand as the Labour candidate in Amber Rudd’s (very marginal) seat of Hastings and Rye.  Her previous form with regard to antisemitism was revealed a few days ago by @GnasherJew, an account dedicated to exposing Labour antisemitism.  One particularly egregious moment came in 2014 when she shared a David [...]
