How Much So-Called ‘Anti-Semitism’ is Actually Opposition To Israeli War Crimes?

It suits supporters of Netanyahu’s gangster regime to characterise any and all opposition to it as anti-semitism.  It’s also true that much of that opposition and emotional outrage is badly framed and expressed so that it can be easily or deliberately misinterpreted as opposition to the Jewish people and their religion.  But the Israeli regime itself plays fast and loose with the confusion between state, race, nationality and religion.  It twists and distorts anything to justify its apartheid policy and genocide of the Palestinian people.

Personally, I see very little anti-semitism.  In fact I cannot remember the last time I saw any words, behaviour or actions that could properly be described as such.  On the other hand there are daily examples of the brutal discrimination, oppression, murder, land theft and extra-judicial execution of Palestinians.

So I call total balderdash on the invented stories of anti-semitism within Labour.  In this instance, I believe Jeremy Corbyn and Shami Chakrabati are absolutely in the right.  Of course, there are the loony left extremists in Labour who are a danger to the whole of our society.  They undoubtedly push their delusional agenda of a Jewish banker mafia but they are bonkers anyway.  We all have to deal with their idiocy on a daily basis.  The far greater danger they pose is their already-achieved elimination of any effective parliamentary opposition.

No, the accusations of anti-semitism, including from the Home Affairs Committee, come from the pro-zionist apologists for Israeli war crimes.  I really don’t believe that amongst decent, honourable British people of all political persuasions, there is any significant anti-Jewish prejudice or actions.  Obviously I’m not saying it never happens but it’s largely Israeli government propaganda.

The answer is to root out the corrupt Israeli lobby in the UK Parliament and in US Senate and Congress.  Stand up to Netanyahu and the despicable conduct of so many in the Knesset. Give the Israeli people back the freedom to live in peace with their neighbours and for the nation to flourish without the hatred and oppression which constrains it today.

Stop Police!

We have now reached the tipping point.  Enough is enough.  The disgraceful oppression at the Gaza demonstration in Kensington, Ian Tomlinson’s death, the six-foot plus thug who beats five-foot minus women, the deliberate disguise of identity, the arrogant invasion of the mother of parliaments, the Stasi-like investigation of Damian Green extending to Shami Chakrabati.  Stop Police!

I respect the challenge and difficulty of the job you do and the vital necessity of your role.  There will always be more good policemen than bad but, yet again, you are losing our trust.  Now is the time to stop, sort out the bad apples and start afresh before the problem becomes systemic.  There is a failure of command and leadership as well so I expect some policemen to go to prison, some policemen to be sacked, some required to resign and some to be disciplined.
