The anti-Zionist takeover of the Labour Party finally heats up as I predicted it would ever since Corbyn took over leadership several years ago:
Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson was last night hit by a massive social media campaign calling for him to quit after he demanded tougher action on anti-Semitism.
Left-wing activists mounted a massive social media campaign against him – posting nearly 50,000 tweets calling for him to go and making the hashtag ‘ResignWatson’ trend on Twitter.
Key allies of Mr Corbyn – including ex Labour MP George Galloway and activist Arron Bastani – were among those who led the onslaught.
[Watson] spoke out after the party was rocked by revelations that Peter Willsman – a Labour member and strong ally of Mr Corbyn – was secretly taped ranting that ‘Jewish Trump fanatics’ invented the anti-Semitism.
He claimed ‘some of these people in the Jewish community support Trump – they are Trump fanatics and all the rest of it’ before shouting: ‘So I am not going to be lectured to by Trump fanatics making up duff information without any evidence at all.’
It should only be a matter of time before Corbyn realizes that he will be called “anti-Semitic” by Jews no matter what he does, so he might as well embrace and build on his anti-Zionist record instead of trying to distance himself from it, especially as the former is what will get Labour support from the demographically ascending anti-Zionist population and hence help Labour win elections in the longer-term. Still don’t believe me? Look at the case of Naz Shah:
She was elected at the 2015 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Bradford West, and gained the seat from George Galloway of the Respect Party.
In April 2016, Shah was suspended from the Labour Party following a controversy regarding antisemitism. The suspension was overturned and she was reinstated in July 2016 following her apology.She was re-elected with a larger majority in the 2017 election.
Her views were described as normal politics in Bradford in an article by Ben Judah in The Independent, in which he described being punched in the head and called a “fucking Jew”.
At the general election in June 2017, Shah was re-elected with an increased vote share, and an increased majority of 21,902 votes over the second-placed Conservative Party candidate, nearly doubling her majority.
What Shah actually said:
“Solution for Israel-Palestine Conflict – Relocate Israel into United States”, with the comment “problem solved”.
The post suggested the US has “plenty of land” to accommodate Israel as a 51st state, allowing Palestinians to “get their life and their land back”.
It added that Israeli people would be welcome and safe in the US while the “transportation cost” would be less than three years’ worth of Washington’s support for Israeli defence spending.
Ms Shah added a note suggesting the plan might “save them some pocket money”.
Shah has also spoken out repeatedly on behalf of the Rohingya:
