Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’ Blunder

This is a guest post by Noah Phillips
With her primary-election upset victory over incumbent Representative Joe Crowley, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez—at 28 years old—is the emerging face of millennial politics and an ardent proponent of modern socialist ideology. While she certainly has mobilized her supporters effectively, Cortez’ campaign is marred by her blatant lack of any [...]

Raheem Kassam Reminds Us All

Raheem reminds us that he’s an obnoxious bore. Quite frankly he’s being antisemitic here in arguing a Jew would be a Nazi collaborator. Bearing in mind the alt right movement he’s desperately trying to be a part of, that that movement is ultimately white supremacists using him to show off how not racist they are, [...]

Labour’s Latest: Cllr Kevin Enticott

You are probably already aware of the key details of this case. Enticott, a Labour councillor from Bognor Regis, has been suspended from the party after apparently posting the most vile and extreme antisemitic material on his Facebook page.

The Reason Labour Can’t Pass IHRA in Full

It’s pretty simple really. If the Labour Party adopted the full International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism, including the guiding examples they’d have to boot out thousands of activists.
The parts Labour of IHRA omitted by Labour were laid out in the Jewish Chronicle thus:
“it omits describing the “dual loyalties” trope as antisemitic. Accusing Jews [...]

Understanding Labour and Antisemitism

David Hirsh wades in to the latest in a sad saga of Labour failing the Jewish community

In September 2001 at the global conference against racism in Durban there was a campaign to construct Zionism as the key racism on the planet. Opposition to antisemitism was presented as incompatible with opposition to racism. Jews were said [...]
