Israel continues to kill and murder Palestinians while seizing more and more of their land, but instead of addressing this all-important issue, the Labour Party in the UK has become obsessed with anti-Semitism.
With some members openly calling for the suspension of others, the party is on a frenzied quest to flush and ferret out supposed “anti-Semites” from within its ranks. The latest victims are Naz Shah, a member of Parliament, and former London Mayor Ken Livingstone.
Shah found herself at the center of a storm when a Facebook post she had posted in 2014 was made public on a right-wing blog and picked up by the rest of the media. Shah’s post, deemed “offensive” and “anti-Semitic” by critics, suggested that Israel should be relocated to the US, though it was obviously posted tongue-in-cheek:
As I say, the post was obviously intended to be humorous, the humor framed in such a manner as to offer a well-merited critique of the policies of both the US and Israel. But lunatics, as we know, don’t usually have much of a sense of humor, and two of Shah’s Labour colleagues were quick to pounce. One of them, Kate Hoey, insisted that Shah should resign “right away,” while another, Lisa Nandy (supposedly a leftist), seemed intent on branding herself as a valiant crusader against anything, however merited it might be or humorously framed, that might conceivably offend powerful British Jews:
We have a policy that people who make antisemitic remarks are suspended and an investigation carried out … and the policy ought to be followed without any exception.
Sadly Shah didn’t have the courage of her convictions. As soon as the controversy exploded, she went before Parliament and issued a groveling apology. The full text, available here, is almost embarrassing to read.
The Facebook post was accompanied by some Tweets that critics have also huffed and puffed over…
…and it is also reported that, horror of horrors, she compared Israel to Nazi Germany! How many people in the world today are comparing Israel to the Nazis would be difficult to say, but those doing so are probably at least as numerous as grains of sand on a California beach. As for “the Jews” rallying to alter the outcome of an Internet poll, particularly one on whether or not Israel commits war crimes–well that the Zionist state has trolls on its payroll combing the Internet posting comments in a hasbara war of words is a well known fact. No one that I know of even disputes it.
In her apology, Shah tries to make amends by explaining that her posts were made at the time of the 2014 conflict in Gaza. “The language I used was wrong,” but “feelings were running high” at the time, she says. Well yes, they were running high then–and they still are. In fact–what has really changed since 2014? About the only thing that’s changed is that Shah got elected to Parliament–and now that she’s in office, she doesn’t want to lose her position. That’s really the only thing that’s different.
When the controversy broke out, Livingstone came to Shah’s defense. And what do you suppose happened? The mob started screaming for his blood as well…and now Livingstone has been suspended from the party too.
Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone has been one of the few British politicians I’ve had a mostly favorable opinion of over the years. In 2003 he opposed the US war in Iraq and referred to George W. Bush as “the greatest threat to life on this planet.” As Voltaire famously said, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you’re not allowed to criticize.” In the UK, politicians can obviously criticize American presidents, but Livingstone, in defending Shah, in an interview he gave to the BBC, made the mistake of criticizing the one group of people you’re not allowed to criticize:
“There’s been a very well-orchestrated campaign by the Israel lobby to smear anybody who criticises Israeli policy as anti-Semitic.
“I had to put up with 35 years of this. It’s completely over the top but it’s not anti-Semitic. Let’s remember when Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy was that Jews should be moved to Israel.
“He was supporting Zionism – this is before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews.”
As the Telegraph put it, “Within an hour the backlash had begun.” No fewer than 39 Labor MPs called for Livingstone’s suspension, one of them, John Mann, denouncing the former mayor–in a face-to-face confrontation, no less–as a “Nazi apologist” and a “f*#*ing disgrace!”
Livingstone defended himself by pointing out what he had said about Hitler and the Zionists making common cause with each other was indeed an historical fact (which is true), but lunatics, in addition to having no sense of humor, are also notoriously uninterested in history.
“You’re a disgusting racist, Livingstone. A disgusting racist rewriting history. You’re a disgusting racist,” cried Mann.
“Are you saying it’s not true?” retorted the former London mayor.
“Yes, you’re a lying racist,” Mann repeatedly sputtered.
Livingstone was placed on suspension, which I gather is pretty much the equivalent of being burned at the stake in British politics. Meanwhile, the witch hunt continues…
A lot is being said these days about Jewish power and its reach. We see Jewish neocons in America able to start wars and initiate regime changes with seemingly little effort, and Jewish billionaires purchasing politicians, much as if they were going into a jewelry store and buying a cheap, fake diamond. But perhaps the most mutagenic Jewish power of all is the power to cause sabbath goy politicians to lose their marbles and go instantly insane.
A few days ago, Gilad Atzmon also posted an article about the controversy engulfing the Labour Party. It appears to have been posted just before the news broke of Shah’s postings, otherwise I’m sure he would have mentioned it. In the article, Atzmon talks about Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s capitulation to demands that he expel members of his party for holding politically incorrect views, and he makes a comment that I’m in complete agreement with: he expresses the view that the left is a “dead concept,” one which “has nothing to offer” in the fight to restore the world to some form of sanity.
Corbyn’s Labour is not a Party, More Like and Occupied Territory
By Gilad Atzmon
John McAuliffe is the latest victim of Labour’s current philo-Semitic purge. According to the Jewish Chronicle, McAuliffe wrote that: “The Holocaust has been the most useful political tool of the Zionist government in Israel to establish a financial racket in the West, whereby Israel receives an unlimited sum for the duration of its existence.” McAuliffe merely states the facts. Everybody knows that ‘there is no business like shoah business,’ as Israeli politician Abba Eban put it in the 1950’s. But denying the truth and killing the messenger is now standard procedure in Corbyn’s Labour.
Like a proper Lefty, McAuliffe bent the truth a bit to fit it neatly into the party ‘narrative’. McAuliffe said that ”The Zionist government of Israel is incompatible with Judaism and Jewish history.” This is a popular statement, but it is wrong. Leftists tend to draw an imaginary demarcation line between the ‘Jew’ and the ‘Zionist.’ No such line exists. Zionism is, by far, the most popular Jewish political ideology. And Zionism in its current state is compatible with Judaism and Jewish culture: Israeli barbarism is light in comparison with some genocidal Old Testament verses and Talmudic teachings. And aggressive Zionistlobbying is consistent with the Book of Esther.
But bending the truthabout Jewish culture didn’t save McAuliffe. He was thrown out of the party in accordance with Corbyn and McDonnell’s commitment to ‘expel’ those who are making ‘Jew-hate remarks.’
For years I have suggested that the Left is Jewish by proxy, but Corbyn’s Labour exceeds the realm of proxy. Corbyn’s Labour is now unequivocally a spineless club of Sabbos Goyim. The Labour party’s policies are now compatible with Jewish culture: intolerant to the core and concerned primarily with the imaginary suffering of one people only. These people are not the working class, they are probably the most privileged ethnic group in Britain. Corbyn’s Labour is a Zionist Occupied Territory.
I should be happy with the current development. It proves my theses that the Left is not a friend to Palestine, the oppressed or the workless people.
I would have never believed that Jeremy Corbyn would engage in such colossally treacherous politics. I did not anticipate that Corbyn would become a Zionist lapdog. Corbyn was a great hope to many of us. I guess that the time has come to accept that The Left is a dead concept, it has nothing to offer. Thedissent to Global capitalism and Zio-con barbarism should take a different shape.
