“Labour antisemitism row was created by Israel trade union boss suggests”

 

He’s absolutely right. Please recall that Netanyahu himself stuck his nose into the affair, even getting what he was charging quite wrong.

The head of Israel’s Labour Party also butted in with a letter that was published.

And there have been other voices from Israel.

It truly has been the most blatant interference in the internal political affairs of another state, making anything Putin has been accused of look silly.

The “anti-Semitism” line does not give people a free pass to do things that are recognized everywhere as completely unacceptable.Israel hates Corbyn for two facts.

One, he is a “Leftie” and Israel’s government hates “Lefties” in general because they invariably speak to concerns over human and democratic rights in the world.

And, two, he has a balanced view of the Mideast and treats Palestinians as though they were full human beings with fair claims to decent and equal treatment.

Now, those are truly terrible things Corbyn stands accused of, aren’t they? I am sure he would plead guilty.
