If there’s one thing the Tories & Zionists can’t stand it is Natural Justice, Due
Process and Fairness
the rubber backbones of Corbyn and Formby – the pressure on Nardel to
‘resign’ will be immense
The appointment of Gordon Nardell QC has outraged the merchants of anti-Semitism
It must have sent the Israel lobby and the Tory press into
apoplexy.  Having invested a small
fortune in time and money in waging the false anti-Semitism campaign, having gathering
‘evidence’ that the Labour Party is ‘riddled with anti-Semitism’, having waged a
bogus war from John O’Groats to Lands End on Jeremy Corbyn, having successfully
intimidated Corbyn into confessing that there are non-existent ‘pockets’ of anti-Semitism
in the Labour Party, to say nothing of John McDonnell ‘weeping’ over
non-existent anti-Semitism, what do they go and do?  They appoint a Jewish lawyer and QC who is
not only of the Left (strange that in the Labour Party) but one who believes in
justice!!  Even worse, the man isn’t a Zionist.  Oy vei some might say.
well known anti-racist paper the Sun was apoplectic. In the neutral and
unbiased tones for which it is justly famous, its headline
ran ‘Leftie lawyer hired
by Labour to oversee anti-Semitism cases is ‘friends with anti-Jewish
  In the Sun’s eyes those who
are accused of anti-Semitism must be guilty as charged.   The job of Labour’s lawyer is to ensure that the
bogus charges stick not to pussy foot around with notions of due process and
natural justice.  The Sun, lest anyone
forget, is the paper which has employed the two most racist ‘journalists’ in
Britain – Richard Littlejohn and Katy Hopkins. 
However when it comes to ‘anti-Semitism’ the Sun is with the best of
Lucian Berger is worried that natural justice and due process may form a part of the disciplinary processes in Labour – the sooner this racist is deselected the better
Luciana would prefer a safe Tory pair of hands – a left wing lawyer is not to her taste
Berger, who was Director of Labour Friends of Israel for 3 years before
becoming an MP, let it be known
that she had ‘no faith’ in Nardell, which to most people must be a good thing.
Berger, being a member of LFI, made no complaint about the tweet a month ago which
blamed those who were murdered in Gaza by Israeli snipers for their own deaths.
Civil Liberties group Liberty have rejected the IHRA definition of antisemitism
What is even worse is that Nardell believes that you cannot
use the discredited International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism
(which the civil liberties group Liberty has just rejected). Whereas the Oxford
English Dictionary definition of anti-Semitism
takes just 6 words ‘Hostility to or
prejudice against Jews’
the IHRA definition takes up some 450 words.  This is necessary in order to conflate anti-Semitism
with anti-Zionism.
The Jewish Chronicle’s take on Nardell’s appointment
The Jewish Chronicle, never one to let a bogus allegation of ‘anti-Semitism’ pass by unnoticed, could barely constrain its anger. Not being a great believer in separating new and comment out, it led with a headline (as if British Jews have no other problems) ‘Gordon Nardell, lawyer dealing with Labour antisemitism, to adopt only part of broader Jew hate definition – Respected QC will not use IHRA definition of antisemitism.  
As the respected former Appeal Court Judge, Sir Stephen
Sedley, who is himself Jewish, wrote in London Review of Books, [Defining
] the purpose of the IHRA definition of ‘anti-Semitism’ is 

to conflate the two [anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism] by characterising
everything other than anodyne criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic’  Further  ‘what is new is the adoption by the UK
government (and the Labour Party) of a definition of anti-Semitism which
endorses the conflation.’

The OED definition of antisemitism is just 6 words – the Zionists prefer a definition of 450 words 

appointment of Gordon Nardell throws a spanner in the works. Zionists are not interested in genuine Jew hate,
on the contrary they spend much of their time these days demonstrating
alongside anti-Semites and fascists. [see The
Zionist – Fascist Alliance was Consummated at the Al Quds Demonstration
].  When fascist groups from Britain
to the EDL, British
National Party
and Tommy
fall over themselves to express their admiration for Israel and Zionism,
as the only state which truly oppresses Muslims and Arabs, you might think that
those concerned with anti-Semitism would turn their attention elsewhere. 

When every self-respecting fascist and anti-Semite,
from Marine
Le Pen
of France to Geert Wilders
of The Netherlands to Heinz
Christian Strache
of Austria say how much they love Israel then you might
think that our Zionists might show some humility.  When the founder of the alt-Right in the USA,
the movement that helped bring Trump to power, neo-Nazi Richard Spencer
declares that he is a ‘White
you would expect the Zionists to keep a low profile.
Instead we have this utterly false and fake
campaign of ‘anti-Semitism’ directed at the Labour Party.  It is to Corbyn’s eternal shame and McDonnell
too, that instead of standing up to this campaign they have given in to it,
almost oblivious to the fact that it is they, not me or Jackie Walker or Marc
Wadsworth, who are the main targets. We are simply collateral damage.
The artificial campaign against Gordon Nardell
is simply the latest instalment of the fake anti-Semitism campaign.  The Zionists characterised Chakrabarti’s Anti-Semitism
Report as a whitewash
not because it was hostile to Zionism, quite the contrary but because it argued
for due process and natural justice in Labour Party disciplinary procedures.  Even though Chakrabarti herself abandoned
this when she pushed for Livingtone to be expelled, the fact is that natural
justice is the last thing the Zionists want. The whole basis of this false anti-Semitism
campaign rests on people being expelled for artificial trumped up reasons.
Collier’s outrage is a good reason to keep Nardell
David Collier with Brian Thomas, who has recently organised a ‘Free Tommy Robinson’ demonstration outside the British Embassy in Tel Aviv
Another person who is outraged is Tommy Robinson supporter David Collier. Collier, who is a far-Right Zionist, makes Netanyahu seem a moderate.  He denies that there is any such a thing as Palestinian refugees, who whom he refers in the third person as ‘it’.  He is of course outraged by the appointment of Nardell.  He would prefer the appointment to be left in the hands of the Israeli Embassy.
It is of course understandable that Luciana
Berger and Ruth Smeeth prefer Israel’s form of justice whereby political
critics are simply locked up without trial, however so far in this country there is still a presumption of innocence.

I was expelled for ‘abusing’ Louise Ellman –
calling her a supporter of Palestinian child abuse was apparently an attempt to
‘shame her (not that she has any shame). 
Marc Wadsworth offended  Ruth ‘liar’ Smeeth by pointing to her links with
the Daily Telegraph.
If Labour’s disciplinary processes are to be fair then the MPs who support LFI should have the whip withdrawn

This is what the campaign against Gordon
Nardell is about and my great fear is that Corbyn will once again cave in just
as he did with Christine Shawcroft, who Corbyn personally told to resign, and
Ken Livingstone with whom he did likewise. 
Together with Jenny Formby, Corbyn and McDonnell believe that if they
appease the Zionists and Labour Friends of Israel,  they will be left
alone.  They are mistaken.  Feeding sharks only increases their appetite. In the words of John Donne, ‘don’t ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls
for thee.’
By supporting Gordon Nardell we are, despite Corbyn,
supporting Jeremy Corbyn.
