Antisemitism. Something “dogging your party” as the Sky anchor put it. The party in question is of course Labour. (Not that antisemitism is exclusive to any one party. It’s not picky. It can dog any party you care to mention, so non-discriminatory is it.) However the ‘problem with Jews’ has been particularly prevalent in the Labour party recently.
Still, too few of his accusers have confronted him head-on by stating that that hanging around mosques and being best friends with devout followers of Islam is giving out some kind of message.
The BBC seems to be waiting for Corbyn to announce something about big noses on the 10 o’clock news while doing an actual nazi salute before grudgingly admitting, loud and clear, that something is definitely dogging something.
When Jeremy Corbyn insists that the Labour party doesn’t tolerate antisemitism he needs to stop coupling antisemitism with Islamophobia. That is not good enough. He seems afraid to acknowledge that some of the people and organisations he habitually associates with and supports are purveyors of the most overt and shameless antisemitic libels and myths, all of which which he turns a blind eye to. He proudly attends rallies and meetings devoted to their cause, for goodness sake. Given the blatant manner with which many of them express their hatred, pretending he doesn’t see it is outrageous. They say he’s a bit dim, but he really can’t be that stupid.
Turning a blind eye is exactly the same as ‘tolerating’. So when will the Labour party stop doing that?
