As soon as Labour Takes a 4% Lead the ‘Anti-Semitism’ Campaign Returns – If Corbyn Doesn’t Grow a Backbone and Fight Back the ‘Anti-Semitism’
Smears will devour him

the very week that Israel passed the Jewish
Nation State Law
which ‘constitutionally enshrined discrimination
against its Palestinian population
Israel an officially apartheid state, the false ‘anti-Semitism’ campaign returned. 
The Jewish Nation State Law defines
Israel as a state, not of its own citizens, but of Jews wherever they may live
in the world. I have more rights, as a Jewish person living in Britain than a
Palestinian citizen of Israel. If that is not racism then the word has lost all
meaning. According to Bradley Burston, a senior editor of Ha’aretz,

In the dead
of night early Thursday,  Netanyahu led
the government in passing the Nation-State Bill, a law which effectively
repealed and superseded the equality and democracy provisions of  Israel’s Declaration of Independence as a
guide for the future of the country. Gone is any mention of equality. In its
place, directives that veer Israel towards genuine apartheid, including a
downgrading of the status of the Arabic language and therefore of Arab citizens
of Israel.’
Orban’s election campaign consisted of anti-Soros posters
is no longer an official language. Although a clause explicitly allowing the
creation of Jewish only communities was replaced with one supporting Jewish
settlement in Arab areas this was just a matter of words. What it meant was a continuation
of the policy of Judaisation of areas like the Galilee or the Negev, i.e. the
creation of Jewish only settlements in places where there are too many Arabs.
also this week we had the visit of Viktor Orban, the anti-Semitic Prime
Minister of Hungary. Eva Balogh describes
in Hungarian Spectrum how ‘In the last eight years the Hungarian
government has made a serious effort to rewrite the history of the Holocaust
and many other aspects of Hungarian-Jewish history.’
The form this takes is Orban’s rehabilitation of Admiral Horthy,
Hungary’s wartime ruler who formed a pact with Nazi Germany and who presided
over the deportation of nearly ½ million Jews to Auschwitz.
Israelis demonstrate in June in Afula, a northern Israeli city against the sale of a house to an Arab – according to the IHRA definition of  antisemitism, to call this racist is antisemitic
It is strange that in all the attacks on Jeremy Corbyn, Margaret
Hodge and the other Zionist rubbish in the Labour Party don’t criticise the
visit of a Holocaust revisionist, Viktor Orban, Prime Minister of Hungary, to
Israel despite Philip Stephen’s observation
that Orban described Horthy as amongst Hungary’s “exceptional statesmen”.
Orban arrives to a hero’s reception in Israel
Orban waged an anti-Semitic election campaign
against Jewish billionaire George Soros employing all the old anti-Jewish stereotypes.
The silence of the Jewish Labour Movement and the Hodges has been deafening. This
was a campaign not only approved by Netanyahu but the subject of an
anti-Semitic cartoon by his son Yair, a cartoon which neo-Nazis like David Duke
openly praised.
In an election
in March Orban declared:
“We are
fighting an enemy that is different from us.
Not open, but hiding; not straightforward but crafty; not honest but
base; not national but international; does not believe in working but
speculates with money; does not have its own homeland but feels it owns the
whole world.”
Both the antisemitic Orban and the fascist Netanyahu agree on hatred of Soros
This includes virtually every
anti-Semitic dog whistle you can think of. 
Speculation, usury, doesn’t believe in working, crafty, dishonest,
doesn’t have a homeland i.e. no loyalty and yet Yad Vashem Zionism’s Holocaust
propaganda museum laid down the red carpet to welcome this man.
Today we learn
that ‘Dozens of demonstrators,
including Holocaust survivors and descendants of survivors, block Prime
Minister Viktor Orbán’s convoy outside Israeli Holocaust museum. ‘He is a
danger to humanity.’
Attorney Eitay Mack, one of the organisers of the protest was quoted as saying that:
The useless IHRA publicises statements against ‘antisemitism by the antisemitic Hungarian government
dictator, every murderer who wants to buy weapons from Israel must come and lay
a wreath at Yad Vashem. We saw the head of the junta in Myanmar come here for a
visit, only to carry out a genocidal campaign months later. We saw the prime
minister of Kenya, who is suspected of crimes against humanity. Yad Vashem has
turned into an institution that whitewashes the crimes of these regimes — as
long as they do business with Israel.”
Yael Weiss-Reind, whose family
was murdered in Hungary during the Holocaust, said that Yad Vashem was granting
legitimacy to these regimes when it accepts leaders who carry out policies and
ideologies that are very similar to what we saw decades ago
“My family
is from Hungary,”
she says, “my
grandfather was murdered in Auschwitz, and the prime minister of Hungary, who
is being welcomed here with respect, has previously expressed his admiration
for the leader who helped carry out the annihilation of 564,000 Jews. I am
disgusted by the fact that the State of Israel is hosting him.”
The dark side
According to the Zionist ‘definition’
of anti-Semitism, Yael Weiss-Reind, despite being a Holocaust
survivor, and Attorney Mack are both anti-Semites.  They dared to compare the actions of Israel
to those of the Nazis. 
When Ken Livingstone mentioned the fact
that the Nazis supported Zionism all hell broke loose even though it was
factually true. When Netanyahu praises and invites as an honoured guest a man
who is rehabilitating Horthy, who dispatched Jews to Auschwitz, Hodge, Berger,
Smeeth and the rest of the cacophonous ‘anti-Semitism’ brigade remain silent. Such
is the hypocrisy of the Zionists.
What is tragic though is that Corbyn, McDonnell
and their supporters don’t call this hypocrisy out.  The Zionists latest complaint is that the International
Holocaust Remembrance Alliance
definition of anti-Semitism hasn’t been
adopted lock, stock and barrel by the NEC. All 500+ words of it. 
Yair Netanyahu’s antisemitic cartoon – widely admired by neo-Nazis like David Duke ex-KKK
There have been numerous critiques of
this bogus definition of anti-Semitism, a definition that 31 states including Hungary’s
anti-Semitic government have happily signed up to. Critiques such as that of the
Jewish former Court of Appeal judge Sir Stephen Sedley in ‘Defining
, Hugh Tomlison QC’s Opinion
and Anthony Lerman’s Why
turning to Jewish exceptionalism to fight antisemitism is a failing project
The IHRA, whose only purpose is to conflate anti-Semitism and
anti-Zionism is intellectually threadbare. It consists of a 38 word definition
and then 11 ‘illustrations’ of anti-Semitism, 7 of which refer to Israel. For
example it holds that criticism of Israel as a ‘racist endeavour’ is anti-Semitic which is absurd.  If it is true that Israel is racist how can
that be anti-Semitic?
The IHRA holds that ‘Denying the Jewish people their right
to self-determination  e.g., by claiming
that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor’
is anti-Semitic.  In other words Israel
is the product of Jewish self-determination, i.e. it is, as it claims, a Jewish
nation state. But that is an anti-Semitic concept because it implies that Jews
aren’t nationals of the states they live in. 
Another illustration says that Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.’ is
anti-Semitic!  Well if Israel is the
product of Jewish self-determination then it is right to hold them responsible for
Israel’s actions. In other words the IHRA, by its own definition, is
Yet instead of making these simple arguments and rebutting the
allegations of ‘anti-Semitism’ Corbyn and his advisers continues to act as if
their accusers were acting in good faith. 
It should be abundantly clear that Hodge, Pollard, Smeeth and co. have
all the attributes of a hungry pirhana fish. 
They are vultures hovering over their prey. Lansman’s Momentum is
paralysed because its owner, Jon Lansman is a Zionist.
It is time for supporters of Corbyn to fight back because there is one
overriding reason for this anti-Semitism campaign – it isn’t to get rid of Tony
Greenstein, Ken Livingstone, Marc Wadsworth or Jackie Walker.  The target is Jeremy Corbyn and until Corbyn is
removed then the ‘anti-Semitism’ campaign will continue unabated. That is a
good reason why people should join Labour Against the Witchhunt and our Facebook
I also recommend watching this short Interview
with Moshe Machover
on the new Labour Anti-Semitism Code
