John Chuckman COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT   “Jeremy Corbyn has acknowledged Labour has a “real problem” with antisemitism as he attempted to defuse the row engulfing his party.”   Well, yes, “real problems,” but not what you might think from a quick glance at the headline. The real problem is people […]

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: YET ANOTHER ROUND OF ATTACKING JEREMY CORBYN FOR SUPPOSED ANTI-SEMITISM IN THE LABOUR PARTY – IT’S BECOME A SICKENINGLY REGULAR PRACTICE AT THE GUARDIAN AND THE INDEPENDENT

John Chuckman COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT   “Jeremy Corbyn is ‘figurehead’ for antisemitism”   What a sickening, lowlife thing to say about a thoroughly decent man.

John Chuckman EXPANSION OF COMMENTS POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY JANE PRINSLEY IN THE INDEPENDENT Labour is traditionally the party of the oppressed.

John Chuckman COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY LIZZIE DEARDON IN THE INDEPENDENT   Well, you may criticize him all you like since Britain is still a relatively free country.

John Chuckman COMMENT POSTED TO A COLUMN BY JAN ROYALL IN THE GUARDIAN   ‘Antisemitism is abhorrent, and the values of our movement mean that it cannot and must not be tolerated.

John Chuckman COMMENT POSTED TO A COLUMN IN THE INDEPENDENT   Thank you, Diane Abbott. You only say what’s understood by all clear-thinking people.

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TALKING TO THE “BAD GUYS” IN CONFLICTS – TRUTHS ABOUT HAMAS HEZBOLLAH AND ISRAEL – THERE ARE NO BAD GUYS IF YOU WANT PEACE – MORE PHONY STUFF TRYING TO ASSOCIATE JEREMY CORBYN AND ANTI-SEMITISM

John Chuckman COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN Let’s get our facts straight.

John Chuckman EXPANSION OF COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN BREITBART   “British Baroness Tonge Blames Israel, Netanyahu for ‘Reigniting’ Hatred Against Jews”   She may well be right.

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: BRITISH PRESS ATTACKS ON LABOUR PARTY’S JEREMY CORBYN AS A TERROR APOLOGIST – BUT THOSE ATTACKS WERE ONLY THE LATEST AND NOT THE WORST IN A LONG SERIES OF VICIOUS ATTACKS

John Chuckman COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY FINIAN CUNNINGHAM IN SPUTNIK   “Britain’s Real Terror Apologist” Good summary piece. In discussing the press attacks on Corbyn about being a “terrorist sympathizer,” the author neglects an even more insidious, unethical set of attacks – those against non-existent anti-Semitism. These latter attacks went on for months, […]
