UK: Corbyn government would pose an ‘existential threat to Jewish life,’ say three major Jewish newspapers

This comes after Corbyn, the leader of the UK’s Labour party, was discovered to be a member of not one, but two anti-Semitic Facebook groups. His Labour party has a long history of Jew-hatred. Corbyn has said that ISIS supporters should not be prosecuted for “expressing a political point of view.” A leading Corbyn activist caused outrage after claiming that Islamic terrorists are “freedom fighters.”

Jeremy Corbyn MP (L) debates with Owen Smith MP (R) in front of an audience of party members at the National Conference Centre during the third Labour party leadership debate on August 18, 2016 in Birmingham, England. The result of the Labour leadership contest between Jeremy Corbyn MP and Owen Smith MP is due to be announced on September 24.

That’s not all. Corbyn has attended a “memorial” for jihad mass murderers. Here is his vicious screed about it. Corbyn is perhaps the only politician in the world who could make Theresa May look good.

What happens now will be key. Will Corbyn be forced to resign? Or will he continue on his path to the Prime Minister’s office, as the British left — and Britain as a whole — continues to embrace Jew-hatred as a part of its accommodation of its growing and restive Muslim community?

“Corbyn government would pose an ‘existential threat to Jewish life’, say three major Jewish newspapers,” by Joe Watts, Independent, July 26, 2018 (thanks to Mark):

Jeremy Corbyn’s efforts to resolve the row over Labour antisemitism has suffered a major blow, after Britain’s three leading Jewish newspapers claimed a government led by him would pose an “existential threat to Jewish life” in the UK.

The unprecedented joint editorial on the front pages of the Jewish Chronicle, Jewish News and the Jewish Telegraph, accused Labour of showing “contempt for Jews and Israel”.

In particular it cited the party’s decision to adopt a “diluted” version of the International Holocaust Rememberance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism.

But as the crisis deepened on Thursday morning, Labour peer Melvyn Bragg accused Mr Corbyn of “feebleness” in tackling antisemitism within the party.

It marks a new low in relations with the Jewish community and follows a vow from Mr Corbyn’s spokesman to take action against a senior Labour MP who is said to have called Mr Corbyn an “antisemite” and “racist”.

Under the headline “United We Stand”, the three papers described Labour’s refusal to adopt in full the IHRA definition of antisemitism as “sinister”.

“We do so because the party that was, until recently, the natural home for our community has seen its values and integrity eroded by Corbynite contempt for Jews and Israel.

“The stain and shame of anti-Semitism has coursed through Her Majesty’s Opposition since Jeremy Corbyn became leader in 2015.”

In a direct attack on Mr Corbyn they express concern that “a man who has a problem seeing that hateful rhetoric aimed at Israel can easily step into anti-Semitism could be our next Prime Minister”…
