Jonathon Cook - Anti-Semitism. Orchestrated Offensive against Jeremy Corbyn in the UK

For months, a campaign has been aimed at destabilising British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, accused of anti-Semitism. The right-wing party, Tony Blair’s heir, and pro-Israel circles are targeting both Corbyn’s left-wing line and his support for the Palestinian people.

They are rounding up on Jeremy Corbyn, but what about anti-Palestinian-ism in both the main British political parties? KV

Britain’s opposition leader should have plenty on his plate at the moment, but Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is spending much of his time instead putting out fires as he is attacked from within and without his party for failing to get to grips with a supposed “anti-semitism crisis” besetting Labour.
Late last month leading Jewish groups organised a large “Enough is enough” march on parliament, attended by prominent Labour MPs, to accuse Corbyn of siding with anti-Semites.
In response to the rally, Corbyn issued a statement acknowledging that “anti-semitism has surfaced within the Labour Party,” apologised and promised “to redouble my efforts to bring this anxiety to an end.”

Under Media Attack

But there are no signs that Corbyn’s problems are about to end. On April 17, he had to endure the bizarre spectacle of a parliamentary debate on anti-semitism convened by the Conservative government in which his own backbenchers spent hours lambasting their party and him as leader. In fact, 18 months earlier, Britain’s parliamentary home affairs committee had found “no reliable, empirical evidence” suggesting Labour had more of an anti-semitism problem than any other political party.

The Tories became worried that they might lose the Council Elections on 3 May 2018. So the Tories asked Jewish groups to send out their foot soldiers to chant “Labour is anti-Semitic! Labour is anti-Semitic!”

This was a lie, but no one dared say so. That’s why the lie was so powerful.

In fact, Jews and non-Jews use the charge of “anti-Semite” as a political cudgel against their competitors. Do you fear that you might lose an election? Call your opponent “anti-Semitic” before he throws the label at you. Then you’ll probably win.

If you call someone a racist or a sexist, the charge may stick, or it may not. But the charge of “anti-Semite” always sticks, and is always devastating. As with the #MeToo harpies, no proof or evidence is required, since this is politics, and Jews (like women) are always “victims.”

Still, perhaps there were other factors that prevented a Labour landslide. Labour in the UK and Democrats in the USA have the same problem: identity politics and obligatory political correctness. Why seek to help all workers when you can easily distract workers by condemning “homophobia” and “toxic masculinity”? Why unite workers, when you can easily keep workers divided and weak by calling for newborn infants to have the right to demand sex change operations?

Ultimately Labour and the Tories work for the same oligarch bosses. All sides have incentives to keep the masses bickering and helpless.

Incidentally, anyone who calls you an “anti-Semite” for noting that Zionists and Nazis worked together to send Jews to Palestinian is lying. The Haavara Agreement between Zionists and Nazis was signed on 25 August 1933. Otto Adolf Eichmann worked closely with Zionist Jews on this agreement, and Eichmann even learned to speak Hebrew.

In 1960, Israelis kidnapped Eichmann, charged him with gassing six million Jews, and hung him.
