THREAD 1. Philip Rosenberg – Director of Public Relations at @BoardofDeputies talking on Argentinian radio re. #antisemitism and #Jewish-#Muslim relations in #UK and #France.
2. #antisemitism is growing in the UK - Incidents in the UK are increasing each year, especially on social media but antisemitism in #France is different re. violence. It’s much more violent in #France than in the #UK.
3. Origin of antisemitism in the UK – generally related to extreme anti-zionism, also old antisemitic tropes re. control and banking unrelated to Israel are also present and used in relation to Israel.

Diplomatic sources: the #Corbyn visit to Brussels was a waste of time because he wants a) a general election b) a new deal featuring a customs union for which there is no time and he does not have a majority in the Commons. The visit left EU officials shaking their heads
The May visit also left EU officials shaking their heads in disbelief. May spoke of progress, Juncker was pessimistic that a no deal #Brexit could be averted. EU officials do not believe the WA will get a majority in the Commons
Work continues in Brussels on an additional document on #Brexit to be appended to the Withdrawal Agreement. It would have to be approved by EU leaders at their next summit on 21 March. It will then be given to UK. However it will not contradict the WA ie will not satisfy ERG

Luciana Berger cited #Labour becoming "institutionally #AntiSemitic" as a key reason for quitting the party.

Despite all the evidence, there are those who still deny the severity of #LabourAntisemitism. Here's a thread detailing how institutionalised it truly is...
Starting at the very top with @JeremyCorbyn.

He infamously referred to #Hamas and #Hezbollah as "friends". Both organisations call for the extermination of #Israel, and regularly carry out attacks against #Jews. They're also both officially classified as #terrorist groups.
Perhaps the most well-known incident is #Corbyn's attendance at a wreath-laying ceremony in Tunisia in 2014, which honoured the terrorists who murdered 11 #Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Mr Corbyn claimed to be "present but not involved".

THREAD: Debunking the #DailyMail #Corbyn Scandal Tsunami.

As the imminent resolution to #Brexit looks JC shaped, the capitalist establishment is in melt down. Red Tories are poised to press the big red button & the plain ole blue Tories are shooting out chaff. Let's go! 1/
1) JC Showed Off to His Mates he Got Laid!
So, he's male then. Next!

2) JC is a Tyrant Who:
Seized power (twice elected)
Purged moderates (barely acknowledges their sabotage)
Crushes dissent (hasn't sacked any1 for ages)
Leaves others to dirty work (was only 1 to table PV) 2/
3) Corbyn Hates Women!

"'Misogynist put downs!"
(Definitely said 'stupid people') skwawkbox.org/2018/12/19/wat…

"Labour never had a female leader!"
(but JC picked first ever 50/50 sex-balanced cabinet)

"He doest do housework cos he's too obsessed with fixing the world!"

Yesterday I cancelled my #Labour membership. Tonight I watched #TulsiGabbard speak #Liverpool & its #Labour members have been disparaged by @wesstreeting & others. We once looked to advocates of peace now we smear them.
I wish I had watched the video before I cancelled my membership. I live in a city that gave us Bessie Braddock, that sought justice for the 96 & I threw in the towel to my regret. goo.gl/94jwJq the latest #TULSI2020 smear. #Corbyn & #Gabbard seek peace and are feared!
I am tired of the smear campaigns propagated by the warmongering media. They live in fear that the truth will come out! @MerseyPensioner @ElaineDyson1 @mac123_m @oneoflokis @RChilvers @silverrich39 @upsadaizy @evertonfc2 @threadreaderapp Unroll

What the hell is @jeremycorbyn doing?
Why is he enabling #Tory #Brexit?
Is this the final betrayal?
No, it isn't.
It's the predicted effect of decisions taken 2-3 years ago. All things considered, it's not as bad as it could have been (thanks to #StopBrexit crowd).

Thread.
1/n
To understand why, I need to outline 2 important mechanisms that most people, politicians and commentators seem to ignore, dismiss or simply don't get. They have different and somewhat opposite consequences, but are both decisive in the current & foreseeable predicaments.
2/n
1st and foremost: the biggest constraint that applies to political decision-making comes from the past decisions & policies.
It is a massive constraint.
Cameron COULD NOT convincingly campaign for #Remain, because his own policies CREATED the discontent channelled by #Leave.

Labour Against the Witchhunt wouldn't even report a Nazi.

LAW have welcomed former MP Jim Sheridan's reinstatement by the party. He was suspended last summer over an #antisemitic statement he posted on Facebook. But LAW don't accept he did anything wrong in the first place. /1
When Labour members err, there ought to be opportunity for them to learn from the experience and make amends. But comrade Sheridan's statement after his suspension was lifted suggested his only regret was getting caught and he appeared to blame those who complained about him. /2
Let's recall what got him into trouble: Sheridan declared he had lost respect and empathy for an entire ethnic group - "the Jewish community" - due to events in @UKLabour. The #Holocaust, pogroms and persecution no longer moved him because of "their Blairite plotters". /3

Murdering #Palestinians is always justified for #Israel & their lobbies, just because Palestinians continue to exist. Notice most Hasbara trolls these days deny the centuries of Palestinian history & culture.
#Hasbara trolls deny that Palestine every existed, despite the maps clearly showing that it did, they even deny that Palestinians were a people. #Zionist lies have reached epic proportions & this is being noticed.
#Israelis will not be believed, their epic lies have devalued any cause they may have had. Additionally, the lies they have perpetrated against #Corbyn & Labour have completely devalued the accusation of antisemitism. In the end they will lose.

I served my country. I saw the horrors war and I was scarred. I saw hate and fear in equal measure. I find it harder since my service to maintain my anger. I react inappropriately at times to the mildest of criticism. I have sought counselling but keep reliving the past.
I never judged someone by their religion, ethnicity, colour or gender. When someone was dying, injured or in distress I reached out to help. It was what I had signed up for it was what I trained for. I thought it would make a difference.
It did make a difference. It changed me it left me damaged because I could not being the suffering to an end. Today the UK feels like the War Zone I left behind. Division, distrust and hate seep from every sinew of our society.

A 2017 analysis of #LabourAntisemitism goo.gl/FrADxu #Israeli born author @jsternweiner asks why the attacks was so hysterical & political. A reference is made to Rebecca Hilsenrath CEO of the EHRC who questions Labours response to Antisemitism.
In early 2018 a furore occurred over an #AntiSemitic Mural.. #Corbyn was criticised for responding to a Facebook post by street artist, Mear One, in 2012, which asked why the image faced destruction. Corbyn apologised and provided an explanation goo.gl/aHvNWY
The #BBC published his apology and explanation on the 23/03/2018 on the 25/03/18 Rebecca Hilsenrath CEO of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. Retweeted the comment in the image without clarification. Is this someone who is truly independent?

Integrity Initiative And Affiliates Behind Multiple Attacks On Disobedient Media

disobedientmedia.com/2019/01/integr…
In the weeks following the hack, major narratives pushed by legacy press in the last two years have been exposed as state-friendly propaganda, including but not limited to: #Russiagate, the #Skripal poisoning, the smearing of #Corbyn, & attacks on the #Catalan independence mvt.
In April last year, Disobedient Media reported on Joseph #Mifsud’s ties to UK intelligence figures, and other connections suggesting British influence at the heart of the #TrumpRussiaCollusion narrative, concluding:

@ShaunLawson is not being honest. @JeremyCorbyn was offered by the leader of the Israeli Labour Party to meet in Israel. He did not even respond. To his own sister party! This comment is utter nonsense. I am not surprised. He spouts much other drivel.
Now this silencing thing. Nonsense.

Of course you have the right to shout. But you have *no* right to pretend you represent the mainstream.

The Board of Deputies represents many opinions. You may even belong to organizations that elect representatives.

@ShaunLawson says it’s defamatory. I shall quote an honest man @stephenpollard on this: When they threaten you wth litigation they never sue.
This is typical far left. All gob and no trousers.
If you mean it, sue him. We’ll be happy to watch you lose.

1/ If we want a Labour Government 🌹 avoid Twitter Brutality:

1. Never tweet when angry
2. Those who loathe #Corbyn & seek his demise will never be persuaded otherwise. So unless armed with facts, stats or a witty satirical retort, ignore them.
3. ALWAYS aim to be respectful
2/

4/Acknowledge the existence of discrimation & bigotry.
5/ Stay away from #Drama however enticing. Block/mute & keep the action positive, the message inclusive & compassionate.
6/ Those who play with fire will eventually get burned whatever side of a wall they sit.
3/

7/ if you’re good with Stats & figures, employ them to back up a debate; or ask for them to support another’s debate.
8/use rage or frustration creatively.
9/Trolls will be out there making horrible/horrific mischief-let them be exposed for the chaos. Help expose them.

What the referendum has shown me – thread, please add your own tweets to it: 1/11
The referendum has shown me that none of the three major UK parties and very few of our politicians, especially on the #Left either care about or even understand what the real definition of democracy actually is & why we voted to leave the #Left also hates the working class. 2/11
The referendum has shown me Parliament has for too long been allowed to ignore the wishes of the British people and more importantly without any real consequences to them, from expenses to lying under oath there has been one rule for us and a different one for them. 3/11

I agree with the sentiment but I cannot emphasise enough that #homelessness, #foodbanks, #ChildPoverty, #HostileEnvironment all existed before #brexit. They are not a consequence of #brexit but #Conservatives policy. It doesn't have to be this way, it's a political choice ->
Before someone from #FBPE jumps in and says "that's because focus has been on brexit" ... not it isn't. This is #Conservative policy. The privatisation of #NHS, the changes in #Education, reductions in #LegalAid ... where has the #EU been in stopping all this? It hasn't.
There has been a constant drive to reform society from health to education, none of which is about addressing the issues of inequality.

Labour demands inquiry into how GCSE reform has benefited private schools - theguardian.com/education/2018…

#LabourAntisemitism: Gaslighting.

Apply the same rules to a Tory MP as you do to Jeremy Corbyn:

1. If a Tory MP ‘liked’ and defended a islamophobic mural you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. #Thread 1/9
2. If a Tory MP laid a wreath at the shrine to far right terrorists who had murdered Muslims you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 2/9
3. If a Tory MP continuously engaged in anti-Islam conspiracy theories you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 3/9

Ok, it's time to address this idea that #FBPE is an anti-Corbyn-focused organisation.
It has become an increasingly popular trope of the pro-Corbyn, Momentum cult that #FBPE is out to get them.
A favourite way to undermine #FBPE by the #Corbyn/#Momentum crowd is to suggest that it is a being controlled by the right or 'shady billionaires' (which historians of World War II will remember is a nod towards Jewish money).

The fallout from @JeremyCorbyn’s #StupidWoman comments may appear symbolic, but has far-reaching implications.
#Corbyn chose #CorbynLies over truth. All he needed to do was say sorry for the cock-up. The words were not actually important. It was a tetchy throw-away remark. 1/8
@JeremyCorbyn has carefully built a (false) image based on his integrity, his kindness, gentle politics, caring. So he has tried to defend himself by denying the obvious - includibg outrageous tweets by @AaronBastani quoting a discredited lip-reader. 2/8
So he decided to die on this hill. He said something else. Nobody believes him.
@jeremyCorbyn and his #NotACult supporters all bleat that he’s not lying but the world knows how false this is. And he’s busy trying to gaslight women into believing him: very far Left behaviour.

This book by Karl Sabbagh “the anti-semitism wars” is now available in @Dauntbooks Marylebone and I have just seen that it’s one of the display books in the politics section #antisemitism #corbyn #labour @GnasherJew @mishtal @antisemitism @AntisemitismOut
It includes “Personal accounts by Tony Greenstein, Karl Sabbagh, Cyril Chilson and Thomas Suarez, of their encounters with Zionists and supporters of Israel who try to smear legitimate criticism as antisemitism”
And “Transcripts of the Al Jazeera undercover documentaries, The Lobby, revealing how Israel and its supporters infiltrate legitimate organisations in the UK, including parliament, to try to suppress criticism of Israel.”

Why is it the Tories make the case for true conservatism so hard, especially in the time of #Corbyn and #McDonnell the rise and stupidity of the extreme Far Left it should be the easiest time for them to do it? #TheBattleforBrexit Thread 1/10
When I was younger, the Conservatives were the party of aspiration, law and order people if they wanted to improve their lot in life voted Conservative, you wanted a small state and low taxes and if you worked hard you were successful. 2/10
If you were lazy, feckless or belonged to a union and had no real ambition then you voted Labour because you wanted a big, nanny state because you were someone who wanted to be infantilized and never grow up because you were incapable of taking care of yourself. 3/10

Lässt sich der #Brexit noch aufhalten? Das denken offenbar einige Beobachter des Brexit-Chaos in Deutschland. Auch von einem zweiten Referendum liest man derzeit oft. Ich glaube: Der Brexit wird kommen. Warum? Ein Thread: 1/
2/ Gestern lange mit einem Freund darüber gestritten. Seine Ansicht: Die Briten erkennen, dass der #Brexit nur schaden anrichtet. Wer das denkt, hat die #Leave-Kampagne nicht verstanden.
3/ @REWearmouth war für die @HuffPostUK in Thorntree. Hier haben über 80 Prozent (!) für den Brexit gestimmt, so viel wie nirgendwo sonst. Fürchten die Menschen sich vor No-Deal? Nein, wie diese Aussage eines Leavers zeigt: huffingtonpost.de/entry/brexit-m…

That #JeremyCorbyn has become a 'force for antisemitism in British politics' as Enoch Powell admirer #FrankField has stated is absurd. I don't agree with all #Corbyn says/does re the Middle East, but he is no Jew hater or believer in Jewish conspiracies. Here at a plaque ceremony
Here at a Chanukah celebration in his constituency
Here with Jewish Labour NEC member Rhea Wolfson, a strong supporter of @jeremycorbyn

You Mark Curtis & the Corbyn cult are IMO dangerous idiots if you downplay this.
A Muslim Brotherhood salute is a Muslim Brotherhood salute - be it Egypt, Syria or Turkey. If a Westerner flashed this salute it shows either support for the MB and its vision - or UTTER STUPIDITY.
That Cameron's UK together with Obama's USA have made a pact with "political Islam" is a story that Syria has felt for 7 bloody years ... and if "commentators" of the Western "pro-Syria space" are now downplaying the MB - I feel vindicated for NEVER having supported them before.
To my mind such antics make Corbyn feel more and more dangerous for the Middle East. Like many of the Pseudo-Left (which is IMO what Labour is) that call themselves "pro-Palestine" but constantly stab the Resistance and Palestinians in the back by attacking Hezbollah and Syria.
