Labour: For the many, not the Jew

Labour and Jeremy Corbyn have an anti-Semitism problem, and it has gotten so bad that Israel’s own Labor party have suspended relations with Corbyn’s Labour.

The Times of Israel reports:

Israel’s opposition Labor party said Tuesday it was suspending relations with British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, accusing him of showing hostility to the Jewish community and allowing anti-Semitic statements and actions from his party officials.

Labor leader Avi Gabbay sent a letter to Corbyn informing him of the decision. The suspension of ties applies only to Corbyn’s office and not the party as a whole.

It is my responsibility to acknowledge the hostility that you have shown to the Jewish community and the anti-Semitic statements and actions you have allowed as leader of the Labour Party UK,” Gabbay wrote.

This is in addition to your very public hatred of the policies of the Government of the State of Israel, many of which regard the security of our citizens and actions of our soldiers — policies where the opposition and coalition in Israel are aligned.”

Acknowledging the long history of friendship between the two parties and their previous leaders, Gabbay said that on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day he had no choice but to halt all formal relations with the British opposition leader.

As Israel approaches Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day this week, we are reminded of the horrors of anti-Semitism in Europe and our commitment to combating anti-Semitism of all forms and in all places,” Gabbay wrote. “As such, I write to inform you of the temporary suspension of all formal relations between the Israel Labor Party and the Leader of the Labour Party UK.” End quote.

To reinforce the issue, Ken Loach, the lefty film director and Corbyn stooge, has forcefully demanded all Labor MPs who took part in the anti-Semitism protests recently, be kicked out of the party!

The Daily Mail reports:

Left-wing film-maker Ken Loach has demanded that Labour MPs who demonstrated against anti-Semitism are kicked out of the party.

The Corbyn ally, who made Labour’s campaign broadcasts before last year’s election, said their support for a protest by Jewish leaders outside Parliament were ‘dirty tricks’.

It came as Israel‘s Labour Party suspended relations with its British counterpart.

Mr Loach told a Labour event near Bristol that MPs on the 1,500-strong rally organised by the Board of Deputies of British Jews last month should be deselected.

He said Labour would not be able to govern ‘if you’ve got two-thirds of Labour MPs undermining Jeremy Corbyn when he is prime minister’, adding: ‘Unless we get Labour MPs who believe in that manifesto last year we won’t get in power.

‘If they’ve been going to the demonstration against him outside Westminster… those are the ones we need to kick out.’

He added: ‘You cannot work with people who have come to undermine the biggest challenge we’ve had – we’ve never had a leader like Corbyn before in the whole history of the Labour Party… and that’s why the dirty tricks are going to come out.’

Mr Loach went on to accuse the Israeli government of ‘infiltrating and undermining the Labour left’. End quote.

It sounds like, with people like Ken Loach remaining inside the Labour tent, that Labour in the UK will have to change their slogan from ‘For the many, not the few’ to ‘For the many, not the Jew’.

I wonder if New Zealand Labour will disassociate themselves with UK Labour over the anti-Semitism issue?
