IS IT THE JEWS AGAIN?

By Pete Moore On May 31st, 2019

Just asking, for a Corbyn ally and one of the most powerful men in the Labour Party.

Jeremy Corbyn has become embroiled in a fresh anti-Semitism row after it emerged that one of his closest allies accused the Israeli embassy of “whipping up” allegations against party members.

Peter Willsman, a member of Labour’s national executive committee, was suspended yesterday after a leaked recording revealed he had accused Labour Party staff of working “indirectly” for the embassy.

Mr Willsman, who escaped disciplinary action last year over similar remarks, also claimed that a letter signed by British rabbis criticising Labour’s handling of anti-Semitism had “obviously been organised by the Israeli Embassy.”

What do you reckon? Is the Israeli Embassy a den of shifty shylocks manipulating opinion via concocted allegations?

Or is the Labour Party dripping in anti-semitism? Inquiring minds wish to know.

  1. As you say, Willsman has previous with anti-Semitism. Unless the recording is a fake he needs to be expelled from the party pronto.

    Alastair Campbell was expelled on Tuesday for voting for the Lib-Dems the previous Thursday. But (alleged) anti-semites get “due process” which can last for months.

  2. ‘Anti-semitism’ is when somebody points out how badly jews are behaving and thus, paradoxically, jews can also be anti-semites. Here is an example of bad behaviour

    As soon as he had said these words, current president Marie Van Der Zyl quickly warned her fellow Jews of a potential Goyim Knowing problem:

    I’d just like to remind you that you are being live streamed. And before any more speakers I’m reminding all of you that you are being live-streamed!

    Too late, dear! The Goyim Know!

    Unfortunately Corbyn is no more an antisemite than I am a feminist. He is just a standard left-wing critic of Israel and the Jews have contrived completely bogus accusations against him for that reason.

  3. “Jeremy Corbyn has become embroiled in a fresh anti-Semitism row ”

    Frankly, who cares?

    Suppose Corbyn doesn’t like Jews. Although, I dare say he doesn’t care one whit about them. More than likely he has made a calculated decision that the Moslem vote is more important than the Jewish vote. And he is right, these days it is.

  4. I presume any interest the Israeli Embassy may have in this issue is the same in motivation and purpose as Pete Moore’s is.

  5. Claimed that a letter signed by British rabbis criticising Labour’s handling of anti-Semitism had “obviously been organised by the Israeli Embassy.”

    Obviously vicious anti Semitism

    Is the Israeli Embassy a den of shifty shylocks manipulating opinion via concocted allegations?

    Whatever would make you think such a thing?

  6. Superb catch, Paul (link)

    “An Israeli embassy official has been caught on camera in an undercover sting plotting to “take down” MPs regarded as hostile, including foreign office minister Sir Alan Duncan, an outspoken supporter of a Palestinian state.

    Masot (senior political officer in the Israeli embassy in London) agreed that Blunt was among MPs that were “strongly pro-Arab rather than pro-Israel”. Strizzolo referred to him being on a “hitlist”.

    “Can I give you some MPs that I would suggest you would take down?” he asked. He went on to say that she knew which MPs he was referring to.

    She asked him to remind her. “The deputy foreign minister,” he said. Strizzolo said: “You still want to go for it?” Masot’s reply is ambiguous but he said Duncan was still causing problems. Strizzolo asked: “I thought we had, you know, neutralised him just a little bit, no?” Masot answered: “No.”

    Now, I wonder what tricks these “senior political officers” in the Israeli embassy in London would used to “neutralise” a British politician.

    Whatever one they choose, they can be sure that Pete Moore is always there to support them.

  7. “Masot (senior political officer in the Israeli embassy in London) agreed that Blunt was among MPs that were “strongly pro-Arab rather than pro-Israel”.

    Oh for he days when British MPs might have been thought to be ‘pro British’, too much to ask these days, I suppose.

  8. Paul and Noel have cast their vote, and they’ve plumped for the shifty shylocks theory.

  9. Blunt was among MPs that were “strongly pro-Arab rather than pro-Israel”.

    Oh for he days when British MPs might have been thought to be ‘pro British’, too much to ask these days, I suppose.

    I can’t see how one equates to the other apl unless of course you’re suggesting that being critical of Israel is somehow anti British? It’s also very interesting how a ‘senior political officer’ from the Israeli embassy can plot to interfere in British somestic parliamentary democracy and you’ve no comment on it?

    The shifty shylocks theory

    Well done Pete, you’ve that’s two outings of of the anti Semitic trope disguised as a dig at the ‘lefties’ you’ve managed.

  10. Paul MccMahon: “I can’t see how one equates to the other apl unless of course you’re suggesting that being critical of Israel is somehow anti British?”

    I have no idea what you are talking about, either.

    An MPs primary role is the welfare of his constituents. None of whom live in Palestine or Israel.

  11. An MPs primary role is the welfare of his constituents.

    Then you’d need to speak to these apl:

    With close to 2,000 activists as members – alongside 80% of Tory MPs

    Labour Friends of Israel promotes a negotiated two state solution for two peoples; with Israel safe, secure and recognised within its borders; living alongside a democratic, independent Palestinian state

    Oh for the days when British MPs might have been thought to be ‘pro British’ eh?, the anti-British bastards.

  12. “An MPs primary role is the welfare of his constituents. None of whom live in Palestine or Israel.”

    Actually an MPs primary role is a national legislator, ie to pass legislation and scrutinise the work of the government. Not as a constituency caretaker. As the government often do things in the foreign affairs sphere it is, as part of their primary role, the role of MPs to scrutinise those actions and attempt to get the government to do the right thing (as those MPs see it).

  13. Seamus: “Actually an MPs primary role is a national legislator, ie to pass legislation and scrutinise the work of the government. Not as a constituency caretaker.”

    I have some sympathy with that point of view.

    But I invite any MP to tell his constituents that he cares more about the welfare of Israelis or Palestinians than he does about people living in Bristol West or where ever.

    Just once, I’d like to see an MP say it. I contend his vote would collapse faster than the Change UK party.

  14. “But I invite any MP to tell his constituents that he cares more about the welfare of Israelis or Palestinians than he does about people living in Bristol West or where ever.”

    I’d also invite you to find any MP who actually does care more about the welfare of Israelis or Palestinians than he does about the welfare of his constituents.
