Ugh. For those who don't know Corbyn is suspended from the Labour Party and likely will never be reinstated. So at least he probably won't be a MP after the next election.

What has Corbyn said that's antisemitic?

by Anonymousreply 4January 24, 2023 4:19 AM

Corbyn is more anti zionist than antisemitic. They are not the same as many lubavitcher hasidic jews are also anti zionist.

Jeremy Corbyn calls for the release of two convicted bombers who set off powerful explosives at a building housing Jewish charities and at Israel's embassy in London.

Corbyn stands on stage alongside Ismail Patel as the latter tells a crowd that "the Jewish community" is "immoral in Justice" and that the "Judaic faith" celebrates the killing of innocent Palestinians. Corbyn appears unperturbed by the antisemitic language, and gives Patel a friendly pat after the speech.

At an event attended by Hezbollah official Hussein el-Hajj Hassan, Corbyn says:

"Tomorrow evening it will be my pleasure and my honor to host an event in Parliament where our friends from Hezbollah will be speaking. I'd also invited friends from Hamas.…" Corbyn calls for an end to Israel while praising Hamas, known for its deadly suicide bombing attacks targeting Jewish civilians and virulently antisemitic founding charter, as a group dedicated to "long term peace, social justice, and political justice."

"Our function is to support those people," he proclaims, insisting Hezbollah and Hamas should not be sanctioned as terrorists by the British government.

Corbyn hosts a Hezbollah official at an event in Parliament he co-organized with extremist Dyab Abou Jahjah. (Corbyn later denied knowing Abou Jahjah, until the emergence of a photo of the two together.)

Corbyn's co-organizer had previously declared that Europe has made "Jew-worshipping" its "alternate religion." He has said he considers "every dead American, British and Dutch soldier a victory." And he has published a cartoon depicting Anne Frank in bed with Hitler.

Corbyn, who had previously called for the release of the bombers who attacked a Jewish charity and described Hamas as "friends," rationalizes suicide bombings by approvingly sharing the view that Israel is responsible for Palestinian attacks targeting Jewish civilians.

Corbyn hosts an event on Holocaust Memorial Day to compete with memorials of the Nazi genocide of Europe's Jews. The event is dedicated to comparing Israel to the Nazis.

According to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's working definition of antisemtisim, such comparisons of Israel to the Nazis are examples of contemporary antisemitism.

In remarks before the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Corbyn suggests speeches by British parliamentarians were directed by Israel's ambassador to the UK Ron Prosor. "They all turned up with a pre-prepared script," he said of the British MPs. "I'm sure your friend Ron Prosor wrote them*," he appears to tell someone in the audience, "because they all came up with the same key words."

*The audio is somewhat unclear, and some transcriptions suggest he said "I'm sure your friend Ron Prosor knows that" — which still implies insidious involvement by the Israelis.

Corbyn writes the forward for an antisemitic book that claims international capitalism is controlled "by men of a single and peculiar race, who have behind them many centuries of financial experience" and holds "the house of Rothschild and its connections" responsible for European wars. In his forward, Corbyn makes no reference to the antisemitism, and calls the book a "great tome," "brilliant," and "correct and prescient."

Corbyn co-sponsors a motion in British Parliament downplaying the unique roll anti-Semitism played in the Holocaust and calling for the elimination and replacement of Holocaust Memorial Day in the U.K.

Corbyn is a co-keynote speaker with Leila Khaled, best known for hijacking planes as a member of the PFLP terror organization in the 1970s. Khaled, still with the PFLP, continues to reject Palestinian negotiations with Israel, and calls instead for "armed struggle" against Israel. For the PFLP, armed struggle has meant murdering civilians.

Corybn applauds in resonse to a speaker — the head of a tiny, extremist Jewish sect — who said Israel should be eliminated with its territory put under Palestinian rule.

On Facebook, Corbyn offers support for an antisemitic mural that was to be removed from a wall in London. The Labour party would later admit the mural "used antisemitic imagery."

After Anglican vicar Stephen Sizer came under fire for repeatedly publishing anti-Jewish comments and links to antisemitic conspiracy websites, Corbyn writes a letter to the Church of England excusing Sizer's bigoted blog posts as being "due to a technical oversight in terms of computer links." The Internet "is a complicated piece of technology," Corbyn insists in his letter, and anyone is liable to repeatedly link to hate sites.

In one post on his personal website, Sizer backed a rumor that a member of Libya's Qaddafi family are Jewish and insinuated that this, and Jewish control over the United States, is why the U.S. had not (at that point) involved itself in Libya's civil war. "Blood is indeed thicker than water," Sizer wrote. "Perhaps this is why the US is reluctant to impose a ‘no-fly’ zone over Libya."

In another post, he described Israeli soldiers as "Herod's soldiers in Bethlehem," a reference to a king who in the New Testament account slaughtered all the children of Bethlehem in an attempt to kill Jesus. (See more here.)

Sizer would later post an article claiming Israel carried out the 9/11 attacks.

At a press conference, Corbyn praises Raed Salah, calling him "a very honored citizen."

Salah had previously promoted the antisemitic blood libel charging Jews with using the blood of non-Jewish children to bake bread (see here), an allegation used throughout history to instigate the mass murder of Jews. He also blamed Israel, with American Jewish complicity, for the 9/11 attacks. Salah has been involved in funding Hamas, an antisemitic group internationally designated as a terror organization for its deadly attacks targeting Jewish civilians, and his Islamist organization criticized the killing of Osama bin Laden (as did Corbyn himself).

"I look forward to giving you tea on the terrace because you deserve it," Corbyn told Salah.

A few days after participating in a conference attended by Hamas leaders, including senior terror leader Husam Badran, Abdul Aziz Umar, and others convicted or murdering Jewish Israeli civilians, Corbyn writes in the Morning Star that the terrorists' contribution to the conference was "fascinating and electrifying."

At the event, Badran had stated that Palestinian aims would be achieved "through military and armed resistance and nothing else." He was responsible for many of the deadliest suicide attacks, including the massacres of elderly Israelis celebrating Passover at the Park Hotel, children eating pizza at a Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem, and teens at a dance club in Tel Aviv.

On Iran's propaganda television outlet Press TV, Corbyn peddles the conspiracy theory that Israel is behind a recent terror attack against Egyptian police in Sinai.

"In whose interests is it to destabilise the new government in Egypt? In whose interest is it to kill Egyptians, other than Israel, concerned at the growing closeness of relationship between Palestine and the new Egyptian government?" Corbyn said. He continued, "It seems a bit unlikely that [an attack by Muslims against Muslims] would happen during Ramadan, to put it mildly, and I suspect the hand of Israel in this whole process of destabilization." Israel was also targeted during the terror attack.

On the same Press TV segment, Corbyn calls convicted Hamas terrorist Abdul Aziz Umar a "brother" and expresses happiness that he was released. Umar took part in the preparation for a suicide bombing at a Jerusalem cafe in which seven Jews were killed.

Corbyn then insists the release of Umar from an Israeli prison is proof of his innocence: "If there was the serious case against the individual prisoners that Israel claims there would be, then they wouldn't win an appeal, they wouldn't get out, they wouldn't have been released. But they are released, in very large numbers."

Umar, however, did not "win an appeal." He was part of a mass release of Palestinian prisoners to secure the freedom of an Israeli hostage held by Hamas.

Corbyn had been a regular on Press TV, appearing five times and being compensated up to $27,000 by the Iranian regime. Press TV "scoops" include the charge that the 9/11 attacks were a false flag operation by Israel and the U.S. government, and that the CIA assassinated Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy on behalf of Israel. (Press TV has scrubbed from its site the article "Jewish Mafia tied to death of America," which it had published in 2013.)

When later criticized for his role with Iran's propaganda outlet, Corbyn would repeatedly insist he stopped working with them in the aftermath of the 2009 elections and the ensuing crackdown on Iran's pro-democracy Green Movement. This is false—Corbyn appeared on the station in 2012, long after the regime's brutal crackdown on protesters.

Corbyn says that while British Jews of the past were proper trade unionists, Zionism rose up "drove them into this sort of ludicrous position they have at the present time."

As an example to illustrate this point, Corbyn referred to a previous event attended by "thankfully silent Zionists" and said of them that "having lived in this country a very long time, probably all their lives, they don't understand English irony."

Not for the first time, Corbyn attends an event organized by Holocaust-denier Paul Eisen, the founder of Deir Yassin Remembered, an organization Corbyn had supported for years, including financially. Eisen had been open about his anti-Jewish views since at least 2004, and in 2008 proudly announced that his Holocaust denial is an "honorable" position.

At an event celebrating the anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution, Corbyn praises what he claims is "the inclusivity, the tolerance and the acceptance of other faiths, other traditions and other ethnic groupings within Iran."

Human rights organizations disagree. In Iran, apostasy—conversion from Islam to any other faith—is punishable by death. The country severely oppresses its Baha'i population and other minorities—a fatwa by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei states that Iranians should "avoid" Baha’is, who are described as a “deviant and misleading sect.” The Iranian president in office until just prior to Corbyn's speech (and who was in office during Corbyn's paid appearances on Press TV) was an outspoken Holocaust denier, as is the country's Supreme Leader.

The regime's intolerance extends beyond religious and ethnic persecution. Iran executes homosexuals, and withholds rights from women.

Corbyn lays a wreath at the graves of Palestinian terrorists responsible for the murder of 11 Olympic athletes representing Israel at the 1972 Munich Olympics, along a plaque specifically commemorating the terrorists.

Corbyn, through spokesmen, would later insist that what he was attending had nothing to do with the Munich perpetrator, but Corbyn himself indicated in an October 2014 Morning Star column that he knew the graves were related to the Munich terrorists. Corbyn subsequently said of the wreath laying, "I don’t think I was actually involved in it," despite photos showing him holding the wreath and praying at the terrorists' graves.

During a televised interview, an enraged Corbyn refuses to say that he doesn't consider Hamas and Hezbollah "friends," as he was recorded saying in 2009. He claims that in his earlier comments he was simply calling for "debate" with the terror groups. In fact, he called for "support" for the groups and extolled them as seekers of peace and justice. (See March 3, 2009 entry.)

After much attention and pressure, Corbyn would later express "regret" for using the term "friends."

by Anonymousreply 9January 24, 2023 4:38 AM

Corbyn tells the BBC he never met Dyab Abou Jahjah, whom he had collaborated with several years earlier (see entry for April 3, 2009). Beginning at minute 9:17 of the segment, he acts as if he's never heard the name before, then seconds later admits he encountered the name just that morning.

"It's been reported that you invited him to the House of Commons as a special guest," the interviewer asks. "Is that something you're denying?"

"I'm sorry, I don't know who this person is," Corbyn replied.

Using a phrase best known as describing the Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews, Labour Friends of Palestine, which includes Jeremy Corbyn as a member, posts on social media that "The Labour Party's Two-State Solution" will be the "final solution." The group later insisted it was an "error" and apologized "for the hurt it has caused."

It is revealed that Corbyn had been a member and participant in a secret Facebook group founded, administered, and heavily populated by well-known conspiracists and antisemites. The group trafficked heavily in antisemitic conspiracy theories.

Corbyn informs major British Jewish organizations that he rejects endorsing the widely adopted International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism in full, a prelude to Labour's adoption of an attenuated version of the IHRA guidelines. Eventually, Labour would defy Corbyn by adopting the full defintion.

Corbyn appoints Naz Shah as Labour's Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, which is responsible for combating discrimination. Shah had been temporarily suspended from the Labour Party after the discovery of Facebook posts she wrote in 2014 urging people to vote in an online poll because "the Jews are rallying" and calling for Israel and its residents to be "relocated" to the United States, though she later made amends with a comprehensive apology.

In a letter published in the Guardian, 68 British rabbis representing a broad spectrum of Jewish denominations decry Labour's reluctance to adopt the full IHRA definition of antisemitism:

"As British rabbis, it is with great regret that we find it necessary to write, yet antisemitism within sections of the Labour party has become so severe and widespread that we must speak out with one Jewish voice.

The Labour party’s leadership has chosen to ignore those who understand antisemitism the best, the Jewish community. By claiming to know what’s good for our community, the Labour party’s leadership have chosen to act in the most insulting and arrogant way.

It is not the Labour party’s place to rewrite a definition of antisemitism accepted by the Crown Prosecution Service, College of Policing, the Scottish parliament, the Welsh assembly, the National Union of Students, and 124 local authorities, including scores of Labour-held councils, including Haringey and Greater Manchester – but above all else, accepted by the vast majority of Jewish people in Britain and globally."

Leaked documents show that Labour's investigation into antisemitism is hindered by delay, inaction, and interference by Corbyn's office, contradicting earlier denials by Corbyn about his involvment in the investigations. The documents show a failure to take action against Labour members who had praised Hitler and spread anti-Jewish conspiracy theories.

A much-awaited Equality and Human Rights Commission report on Labour antisemitism identifies "serious failings in leadership," "a culture that is at odds with the Labour Party’s commitment to zero tolerance of antisemitism," unlawful antisemitic harassment in violation of the Equality Act, and unlawful political interference into complaints.

There hasn’t been a terrorist that Jeremy hasn’t supported.

The fact that Corbyn used to fuck that retard, Diane Abbott, says a lot.

Rashida is so disgusting. She goes on TV and brags about having had an abortion. Loathsome person.

[Quote]brags about having had an abortion

Doubt she bragged but sharing that she had one helps to erase the stigma and that's is a good thing, you puritan.

Hopefully he'll be out of parliament at the next general election.

The man contributed to Brexit, something that I won't ever forgive him for.
