Lansman Joins the Lynch Mob in his Attack on Jackie Walker, Marc Wadsworth
and Pete Willsman
A selection of the choicest tweets that were inspired by the Jewish Labour Movement/Jon Lansman’s campaign against Jackie Walker
In May
2016 Jackie Walker, Vice-Chair of Momentum was suspended from the Labour Party for
‘anti-semitism’.  In a private Facebook discussion with a friend about her dual Black-Jewish inheritance, she remarked that ‘my ancestors too, were the chief
financiers of the sugar and slave trade.’
 If this had been a public discussion  then Jackie would have said that her ancestors were among the chief financiers of the sugar
and slave trade.  [see The lynching of Jackie Walker]
However the intention of the Israel Advocacy
Movement, which hacked the conversation, was to ‘take out’ Jackie, who was seen as a
thorn in the side of the Israel’s supporters in the Labour Party.

Three weeks later Jackie was reinstated but the
Jewish Labour Movement, the British representatives
of the Israeli Labor Party, refused to accept this decision and they decided to
wage a campaign akin to a political lynching, whose
purpose was to renew her suspension.  When John McDonnell spoke at a Labour Representative Committee meeting alongside Jackie in early
September 2016 in Brighton, he was criticised
and had an invitation to speak at a JLM fringe meeting withdrawn.

One of many abusive tweets caused by the actions of Lansman’s Zionist friends – for some strange reason they weren’t deemed worthy of comment by the yellow press in this country
Since then there has been a vile racist campaign, as the tweets I am publishing here demonstrate, against Jackie.  Neither the Jewish Labour Movement nor Jon Lansman have uttered one word of criticism against this abuse. They have been happy to go along with racist abuse as long as it is not about antisemitism.  Not once have they ever dissociated themselves from the abuse that Jackie has received.  Lansman’s only concern is with ‘unconscious’ or fake antisemitism.

That is why Lansman is a Jewish supremacist and Zionist. He looks at everything from one perspective only – is it good for Jews.  Any other form of racism is secondary too him.  He will surround himself with pliant Black people but the moment they rebel he will cut them off.

Lansman as part of Labour Party delegation meeting people from the Palestinian Authority
Ten days before the 2016 Labour Conference I wrote a
blog The
Jewish Labour Movement and its Political Lynching of Jackie Walker
. It was obvious to me what was going to happen. At the
Conference Jackie attended a JLM ‘training event’ which Adam Langleben, the
recently defeated racist Labour candidate in Hendon West secretly taped. Jackie
said that she hadn’t heard a definition of anti-semitism that she could accept and
that Holocaust Memorial Day commemorations should not just be about Jews but
about all those who were murdered by the Nazis. This was held to be antisemitic because anything anti-Zionists say about the Holocaust or antisemitism is by definition ‘anti-Semitic’.

Jon Lansman – unelected Chair of Momentum, Zionist and Jewish supremacist

Even a survivor of Auschwitz, Hajo Meyer, was accused of ‘anti-semitism’ for comparing what he went through with what Palestinians experience and Corbyn stupidly apologised. However when the Blessed Margaret Hodge compared being subject of a disciplinary investigation to what Jewish refugees from the Nazis suffered there are no cries of ‘antisemitism’.

Free Speech on Israel’s picket of the TSSA HQ near Euston in October 2016 when Lansman effected the removal of Jackie Walker as Momentum Vice-Chair
Jackie’s words were distorted to suggest what she was saying was
anti-semitic. They clearly weren’t but the person who enabled this campaign
of political assassination was Jon Lansman. 
Lansman proposed that Jackie be removed as Vice-Chair of Momentum and with
the support of the Alliance for Workers Liberty this was agreed to early in
October 2016.
to this meeting a group of Jewish Labour Party members had written to Lansman
and Momentum’s Executive urging that they resist the calls for a witchhunt and
the removal of Jackie.  We wrote:
‘We are seriously disturbed by the report in the
Guardian Momentum
likely to oust Jackie Walker over Holocaust remarks
 and a similar report in the Independent that ‘Senior members of
Momentum are “fuming” at her remarks’.
It is your duty not to
betray comrades.’

Idiot Jess Phillips ‘feminist’ friend of Jacob Rees-Mogg
gave Iain McNicol, Labour’s General Secretary, the cue to suspend Jackie.  Lansman was quoted in The Independent as
spoke to Jeremy Newmark of the Jewish Labour Movement this morning, he’s very
upset and I can understand that – I work closely with Jeremy, I’ve been meeting
with Jewish organisations to talk… I’ve been outspoken. I was very, very
unhappy about… and I did comment on it, about it, what she had previously
These comments were revealing.  Lansman openly
admitted to working with the corrupt Chair of the JLM, Jeremy Newmark, who
freely admitted to his close links with the Israeli Embassy and Mark Regev, its
war criminal Ambassador. Lansman knows full well the relationship of the JLM to
the Israeli Labor Party and its membership of the World Zionist Organisation, the main organisation of Israeli apartheid which funds  Jewish only Israeli settlements.  Lansman
preferred to stab a Black anti-racist in the back rather than upset the JLM and
the Israeli Embassy.
forward to today. Recently Lansman has been to Israel. It would be difficult to
go to Israel and not be aware of the virulent racism against Israel’s Palestinian
citizens. Things such as the new Jewish Nation State Law which makes explicit the fact that Israel
is an apartheid state, the interrogation of people at the airport (does any
other democratic country interview people who visit to ensure that they hold
the correct political opinions?) the violent anti-Arab demonstrations, the residential
and educational segregation Lansman is aware of all of this yet what does
he do?
a private conversation with a member of Brent Momentum, Graham Durham, Lansman
attacked Jackie Walker as an anti-semite, says he doesn’t know if Marc Wadsworth is anti-semitic
and for good measure attacks Pete Willsman, though conceding he is not anti-semitic
(probably because he is White). 

Everything Lansman says and does is from the perspective of a privileged White community in Britain, a community that has overwhelmingly voted Tory for 50 years. Lansman is a Jewish
Supremacist and a racist who cannot tolerate Black people who challenge him.
That was Jackie’s real crime as Deputy Chair of Momentum. Lansman personally appointed her, there was no election, because of her well known record as an anti-racist and anti-fascist.  However he could not control
her and she was an anti-Zionist.  

Lansman’s support for Israel is no
different from that of the alt-Right in the USA or  Tommy Robinson here.  He supports Zionism, right or wrong and
his justification
for the expulsion of Palestinian refugees in 1948, ethnic cleansing and his belief that ‘the
Left must stop talking about ‘Zionism
mark Lansman down as a supporter of western imperialism and the racism that is its handmaiden.  Lansman is a Jewish chauvinist
who believes in Jewish exceptionalism. Zionism is the ideology of the Israeli State.  It believes in a pure Jewish racial state with Palestinians confined to the margins – hewers of wood and drawers of water in biblical terms.

Luke Akehurst justifies the murder of some 160 unarmed Palestinians gunned down by the Israeli military in Gaza yet this vile creature remains unsuspended
Lansman’s obsession with anti-semitism which he even calls it ‘unconscious’
in order to explain why it is that no one can ever find any examples of it in
the Labour Party.  Yet not once, has
Lansman called for the suspension of Luke Akehurst, an NEC candidate, who openly
the murder of 160 Palestinians, children included, in the Gaza
demonstrations.  If he had any integrity he would call for the suspension of Margaret Hodge for comparing her situation to that of Jews fleeing the Nazis but Lansman is not only a hypocrite but he is also a political coward.
is it that a word out of place gets supporters of the Palestinians suspended
yet Luke Akehurst is allowed to stand for the National Executive
Committee?  Yet Lansman is silent as is much of the Left.  Anti-Palestinian racism is acceptable, but a word out of place about Jews leads to instant discipline.
Lansman stated to Graham Durham that ‘Jackie
Walker is, I’m afraid, an anti-Semite. She provides leadership for other
utter malevolent racist bigotry.  Jackie unlike
Lansman has been an active opponent of the National Front. Whilst Jackie was busy fighting the fascists
Lansman was accumulating millions as a property developer. Her crime is being an anti-Zionist.  Lansman’s attack is
despicable.  He provides no proof for his
assertion that Jackie ‘provides
for other unnamed anti-semites nor could he. 
This is a product of Lansman’s racist mindset. Lansman has never played
any role or part in the anti-fascist movement. His sole concern has been to
support the Israeli state.
Likewise Lansman’s
attack on Marc Wadsworth.  He concedes
that ‘he may not be anti-semitic
which is the only form of racism that counts for Lansman, but he asserts that Marc came to the
Chakrabarti press conference to cause trouble. How does Lansman know this? Because
he spoke from the floor, the only contribution from a Black person in a press
conference supposedly about  racism and
not just anti-semitism. 

Because Marc was determined to include racism against
Black people in the agenda of the meeting, he was guilty of disrupting it and
therefore bringing the Labour Party into ‘disrepute’. Even worse he called out the dealing between right-wing Labour MP Ruth Smeeth and the Daily Telegraph.

also attacked, for good measure, Peter Willsman.  The only form of racism that matters to
Lansman is anti-semitism, which barely exists. Racism against Black or Asian people
is not his concern. 
question is how we are going to remove Lansman who made his name over 30 years
ago as a supporter of Tony Benn.  It
would do well for us to remember the famous 5 questions of Benn:
House will forgive me for quoting five democratic questions that I have
developed during my life. If one meets a powerful person–Rupert Murdoch,
perhaps, or Joe Stalin or Hitler–one can ask five questions: what power do you
have; where did you get it; in whose interests do you exercise it; to whom are
you accountable; and, how can we get rid of you? Anyone who cannot answer the
last of those questions does not live in a democratic system.”
Today Tony Benn would be accused of ‘antisemitism’ and suspended for comparing Rupert Murdoch to Hitler!

Momentum members are serious about supporting Jeremy Corbyn then it is
essential to remove Lansman.  Lansman’s
treachery is such that it is only a matter of time before this racist property
millionaire stabs Corbyn in the back too.  You have been warned!

GD:     Ok Jon your view accords with mine on an
anti-racist Britain.But whilst understanding the support amongst Jews here for
Israel we must not allow this to restrict our criticism or our understanding of
how Irgun and other murder gangs created the state and the racist policies
since.On anti-semitism I entirely agree with you and would never agree it
should be unchallenged but the Hodge and Smeeth etc attacks abuse the desire to
see anti-semitism challenged as they are simply a code for anti-Corbyn
attacks.Sadly Jon your attacks on Jackie Walker,Pete Willsman and Marc
Wadsworth place you in the wrong camp
JL     Jackie Walker is, I’m afraid, an anti-Semite.
She provides leadership for other anti-semites. Marc Wadsworth went to the
Chakrabarti report launch to disrupt it. He may not be anti Semitic but his
actions were deliberate and brought the Party into disrepute. Pete Willsman is
not in the same category at all but his consistent bad behaviour is not
Here is an image of Lansman and others from our
Labour Party members visit to Palestine   sharing views with a PLA
governor of a West Bank territory in June this year.Following this visit the
group members have been following and debating events there and in the ongoing
debate in the Labour Party.Last night Jon and I exchanged views and I was
surprised at his response ( I’ll leave you to read it and ,for context,my
comments he was responding to)
