This is a kind of ‘out of office message’ but in the meantime, here are two brilliant ‘long(ish) reads’ relating to the new, ‘left’ antisemitism. Harry’s Place "Labour's problem is not antisemitism" (Catch it before the comments disappear) and Brendan O’Neill / Spiked"Why do you hate Israel?" (Beware of the comments)
If I’m not mistaken, both these articles explain that the fanatical anti-imperialist / anti western/ anti-capitalist ideology of the devout Corbynista outweighs or overrides the anti-semitism within its inherent anti-Zionism. In other words, followers of the far-left cult, including Jewish members and those who are not necessarily antisemitic, will deflect accusations of racism (antisemitism) with: a.) whataboutery; b.) ‘bad apples’ ; c.) ‘smear’; d.) turning a blind eye.
One small observation. Jews, on the whole are loath to forget their gratitude to countries that took them in in their hour of need and feel it would be hypocritical to turn away any kind of refugee, ever. That might account for the concept (if true) that the Jews are encouraging , if not actually facilitating, multiculturalism and mass immigration. However, it has to be said. Muslim immigration - much too much, much too soon - plays a huge part in this.
P.S. Last might’s QT. Barry Gardiner surprised me; he looked genuinely ashamed, but still, in the end he deflected. Kate Andrews was excellent. Dimbles changed the subject with an air of boredom just as it got into its stride. As soon as that lout in the audience mentioned Boris Johnson I knew it. I knew Watermelon and Piccaninnies would come up, but i didn’t think the idiot who would come up with it would be Jonathan Freedland. Spiteful, out of context and gratuitous. Oh dear.
