It must be clear to everyone this is an inflated and orchestrated campaign with two purposes:
1. to paint Labour as deeply divided, racist and disloyal to its leader;
2. to frighten off anyone in the public sphere criticising or publicising the brutal, inhumane actions by Israel. The intention is to conflate 'anti-semitism' with objective assessment of the western/israeli programme and strategy, and thus neutering it.
What we see in the world is Israel backed by a hugely influential elite network, implementing tactics indistinguishable from the German Nazi regime's that created the holocaust. If we decry the latter, we must logically decry the former but ludicrously we are told this is 'anti-semitic'.
Cameron has clearly attached himself to this position, wringing every drop of political capital out of the flimsy evidence he can. But he also denies jewish input into 9/11 despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, so perhaps we should not be surprised.
Make no mistake about it, this is not just an internal Party Political squabble but a battle for the heart and mind of the British population, and baseless 'anti-semitic' smear tactics should be rejected out of hand.
Indeed on two counts it is untenable, first because many practising Jews themselves (although perhaps not enough) have publicly rejected the the philosophy and repressive practices of 'Zionism', as being contrary to scripture and giving the religion a bad name; and second Israel is itself 'anti-semitic' as the term extends to the Arabic speaking Palestinians themselves, against whom the terrible acts of violence and discrimination are directed.
From elsewhere: The taliban was an american creation. the contras were an american creation. al qaeda (where is it now!) was an american creation. 9/11 was a jewish/american inside job. 7/7 was definitely a con. Ditto paris and brussels. Now who do you think created ISIS and their evil deeds real and imagined? They are no more representative of Muslims than Mao Tse Tung was the vicar of Christ.
It may be worth reminding ourselves that at the very time Hitler was pursuing a 'final solution', it was American Jewish financiers that supported his regime. Is this fact 'anti-semitic' too Mr Cameron?
What did a government minister say on question time? "Anti-semitism must be CRUSHED"? Ah that gives a clue to the dastardly scheme. First use anti semitism as the evil to be 'crushed' no doubt with more criminal legislation. Then conflate criticism of Israel's evil policy and acts as anti semitism. Result! Stop people speaking up for the oppressed Palestinians, giving Israel carte blanche to do as it pleases at home and abroad, whilst affording a tawdry excuse to prohibit free speech, a central plank of our constitution, in the process. Do Cameron and Co. think that all the people who did not benefit from a private education, are nonetheless unable to see through the rhetoric and faux outrage? Where is his outrage at mother and son shot in cold blood in the street by IDF soldiers? Clearly the zionists have stolen his moral compass as well as Palestinian homes, land and lives.
Any irrational hatred of a group needs to be confronted and resisted whether it be Jew, Muslim or Gentile. By the same token fair and free discussion of them should never be stifled by virtue of the application of an al-embracing term like 'anti-semitism'. Nor should it be used to prevent the analysis of the policy and activity of a foreign country like Israel. Indeed we need more of it in respect to that and other countries. In the absence of military intervention, public education and public opinion are the only tools good people have to influence despots. Needless to say the BBC and other news outlets have totally failed in this most basic objective. 'Dumbed down' is one way of putting it. Betraying the public's trust is another more accurate one.
