🔴 As we mark #HumanRightsDay, a devastating new @EURightsAgency Report on #Antisemitism in #Europe underscores how alarming situation has become.

You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

But thread below on some of these jarring figures:
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 90% of Jews feel #Antisemitism has increased over past 5 years.

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

This is what we call fake news.

45 are being *investigated by the police* for antisemitic hate. That means very serious hatred.

There are 1,200 cases logged and registered by @LabourAgainstAS alone. Plus another 2,000 backlog not yet registered. Plus the rest.

It’s v serious!
Facts: here are some 50 *Labour officials* who are antisemitic. Some have been let off by a system not for for purpose.
In fact, the system is so warped and unfit, the General Counsel is considered by the *three* QCs in this conversation to be being bypassed by crooked antisemitic officials in @UKLabour - meaning cases hidden from him. Leadership are abusing system.

If you vote for "Republicans" you are voting for a totalitarian America. You are voting for the trump family, business and wealthy politicians to get wealthier at your expense. You are voting away your own rights.

They will always need an enemy to supposedly be "protecting" you from. When they run out of outsiders to go after they will begin to turn on your own citizens, as they are already doing to blacks and democrats, eventually you or someone you love will be the target.

In an atmosphere where all it takes is someone to report you for suspicious activity to make you a target, neighbors begin to turn on neighbors and family on family when there are disagreements. It becomes easy to "get revenge" by turning someone in even if they did nothing.

I believe this is where we are headed with @JeremyCorbyn failing to deal with #LabourAntisemitism.
The rhetoric and behaviour of #Corbyn and allies @johnmcdonnellMP @HackneyAbbott @DawnButlerBrent and co, ignoring racism against Jews and supporting racists like JVL lead here. 1/
The shocking news that @JeremyCorbyn’s ally @johnmcdonnellMP gave support to Jenny Manson, the woman who leads antisemitic front group JVL, in her candidacy for Finchley & Golders Green. She uses her Jewish background for her #antisemitic politics.

@JVoiceLabour is a mainly geriatric group of Trots and Tankies, largely antisemitic, antizionist, and regressive Far Left. It was set up to counter The Jewish community’s dismay at @JeremyCornyn, with an alternative narrative.

Now it’s branching out.

Anyone – such as @guyverhofstadt – who vilifies Viktor Orban and the current Hungarian government, must be a dangerous antisemite, and should be condemned; because, as Netanyahu said, Orban is a "true friend of Israel". duckduckgo.com/?q=orban+true+…
So were the Nazis. But we aren't allowed to talk about that. Because free speech. Democracy. Liberty. Tolerance. You know. Our "Western values".
Now, about this recent Nazi-esque "Cathedral of Light" performance by #Ukraine's US-NATO backed – and #Israeli armed duckduckgo.com/?q=israel+arms… – openly neo-Nazi Azov Regiment...

@RabbiZvi’s #LabourAntisemitism roundup:

It’s 5 months and a half since the first demonstration of the Jewish Community against @jeremycorbyn’s obvious antisemitism. How is it going?
This thread is a position document referencing #CorbynAntisemitismOmnishsmbles in @UKLabour
1/12
Corbyn has been outed as an obvious antisemite, sneering at Jews, laying a wreath on the grave of a Jew-killer, supporting a 9/11 conspiracist, calling Jew-killers brother and pedalling Israel conspiracy theories on @PressTV #CorbynAntisemitismOmnishambles 2/12
@ukLabour Party is now outed as an institutionally #antisemitic organization due to the exposure of @PeterWillsman ranting paranoia and smears against our @BoardofDeputies and others as “Trump fanatics”. Levers ofpower are being used to avoid #CorbynAntisemitismOmnishambles 3/12

#Corbyn’s month:
August has seen @jeremycorbyn under increasing pressure due to his #antisemitism. It did not start well.

He kicked off August’s #Omnishambles with non-apology for his behaviour, inviting a Survivor on HMD to compare Israel to Nazis.

theguardian.com/politics/2018/… 1/n
The day after this was revealed in the papers @MichaelSegalov (who apparently blocked me for pointing out his rather craven behaviour) said he should apologise nicely. Michael is not doing anyone any favours by his behaviour, @jeremycorbyn is a racist.
theguardian.com/commentisfree/… 2/n
A reaction carrying over July’s @peterWillsman #racist #LabourAntisemitism, Segalov is focussed on shuffling off the inconvenience:
“But the best chance we have of quelling this is for Corbyn himself to guide his supporters. He can’t be accused of being a traitor to himself. 3/n

In February 2017, the Charlottesville City Council voted to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee from a local park named for him & in June they voted to rename it “Emancipation Park.” nytimes.com/2017/08/13/us/…
On May 13, 2017, #WhiteSupremacist Richard Spencer led a rally to protest the removal of the statue. His protesters held torches near the statue (as seen in photo used later for August #UTR) nytimes.com/2017/08/13/us/…

Meet #Israel's #Hasbara, which means #Propaganda, MSM Censorship Application👇🤨
This app came out about last year, and it is still on the iTunes store.
The app posts daily missions & TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SAY
#Trolls #Palestine #Gaza #BDS #JeremyCorbyn #JC4PM
6yrs ago #Jerusalem, #IDF Rep:
"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

I have to say I am very disappointed in my father who I admire more than just about anyone. Being disappointed in a man you chose to love singularly when you were three-years-old as he sat just so on a sofa, is not easy. He taught me the NYTimes was essential to Hitler's success.
At the age of 84, he believes every word it prints. How does a man teach subliminal imagery – decoding the manipulation of advertising – tearing through 70's train cars to pull alcohol and cigarette ads down to study in his college lectures, rely solely on the @nytimes coverage?
He shared evidence of how @nytimes buried and obscured what was happening to Europe's Jews. But now there is no possibility for dialogue. In his home, there is one viewpoint, the viewpoint of the Times' editors and their correspondents on the ground delivered right to their door.

#MarchForwardMA @MarchForwardMA wins. We have been assessing statements from hundreds of chapters and orgs regarding #WomensMarch #AntiSemitism. We can conclude this statement is the most shockingly offensive yet. Comments are equally disgusted. #EpicFail facebook.com/MarchForwardMA…
"We acknowledge that much of the demand to ‘condemn’ or ‘renounce’ Farrakhan is not itself a call to work for justice on behalf of marginalized communities, but is merely performative. We are not merely performative allies together in this movement." @MarchForwardMA #VictimShames
The Comments:

"All good. This was the last straw.
Check out We Are March On (@WeAreMarchOn): twitter.com/WeAreMarchOn?s…"

Here follows a thread on why @J_VoiceUK are disingenuous and dangerous. They pretend to fight #antisemitism via a new form of victim-blaming. #DeniersOut #EnoughIsEnough #LabourAntisemitism
They don’t outright accuse victims of #LabourAntisemitism of lying, but instead point a finger at their protectors, flashing their Jewish credentials to look credible.
#DeniersOut #EnoughIsEnough
“It’s the Tories!” They cry. “It’s the press!” “Manufactured consent!” “Of course”, they say, “there’s an eeny-weeny bit of antisemitism in @UKLabour”.

'I did not have internet relations with that woman' - How many times can you 'accidentally' bump into someone online? Because @jeremycorbyn claims he was added to #antisemitic group #Palestine Live by someone he didn't know.
So he comments on her personal timeline - sometimes tagged, often not. The leader of @uklabour thanking her, or using her space to thank others. Sometimes it is just a comment about some poetry she uploads.
And then there are 'likes' - on paintings, cartoons and animal images. How many times can you 'accidentally' bump into someone online?@ For someone who didn't use social media much - Corbyn sure ended up with Elleanne a lot
