  1. The British Labour Party has always been a strong supporter of Zionism, it backed the Balfour Declaration of 1917, and opposed the MacDonald white paper of 1939 which restricted Jewish immigration. In 1944 the Labour policy was that the Arabs of Palestine should be encouraged to move out as the Jews moved in, and that Palestine should extend into Egypt, Syria or Jordan.

    Why is there now such a fuss about anti-semitism in the Labour part? Because its Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has said that the next Labour government will recognise the State of Palestine.

    1. @ Eunice Kearnes: You have been warned about comment rule violations. This comment violates them in multiple ways and is deeply offensive. You are now moderated. Only comments which respect the comment rules will be published in future.

  2. The news here is the dog that didn’t bark.

    After all the hysteria about supposed Russian interference in our elections, here’s a US official calmly proposing to intervene in Britain’s elections.

    …and yet the normally hysterically anti-Trump mainstream media is virtually silent.

    Go figure.

  3. It’s unclear that getting attacked so excessively for Pro-Palestinianism, won’t actually generate more support for Labour among regular Brits; as nobody likes a bully.

    1. @ Joshua Laskin: My own take on this from a purely tactical perspective is that given that there are under 300,000 Jews in the UK (not all of whom even accept the anti-Semitism claims), if we assume that perhaps that many non-Jews in the country are motivated and agitated about this issue, it simply won’t generate the sort of concern among voters that will cause any Party to win (in this case the Tories) or lose (Labour) an election.

      I’d be willing to bet if you asked UK Jews what their voting priorities are when they go into the polling booth, so-called Labour anti-Semitism is near the bottom of the top ten, if that. It’s quite a marginal issue imo and I’m not sure why the Lobby is exhausting so much of its resources to promote this fraud.

  4. I have never read a report on anti Semitism that does not claim that there has been an alarming rise. Three physical attacks in the Netherlands last year! Anti Semitism has risen with 70%! That sort of thing.
