The co-ordinated assault by the UK’s Jewish media (Jewish Chronicle, Jewish News and Jewish Telegraph) on the Labour Party has plumbed new depths.
In a joint statement they talk of “the existential threat to Jewish life in this country that would be posed by a Jeremy Corbyn-led government”, of “a clear and present danger”.
They suggest, wilfully, that using phrases like “Dirty Jew” and “Zionist bitch” is now acceptable within Labour. They know this is untrue. Hundreds of thousands of Labour Party members, Jewish and non-Jewish, know it is untrue.
They write: “”Had the full IHRA definition with examples relating to Israel been approved, hundreds, if not thousands, of Labour and Momentum members would need to be expelled.”
They are playing a dangerous game.
