"a wall of silence": I believe this refusal to engage in argument represents a very serious failure of leadership. Organisations like the LFI, CFI & Board of Deputies & senior politicians like Chukka Umunna cannot avoid debate about the future of #Israel, the West Bank & #Gaza.
"a wall of silence" Does the Board of Deputies really believe that #Israeli forces should have total impunity to maim and kill #Palestinians? Don’t they believe that Israel is in any way subject to the rule of law?
This is a thread on yet another anti-Semite in the #Labour Party - which, without fail, #Corbyn and the #JC4PM campaign will ignore. As I will discuss, he refers to Jews as "dogs" and "inbred", among several other abusive terms.
First, he equates the Jewish ancestry of a Twitter user with supporting #Israel. He then continues to associate the "state with the same ideology as Nazism" - a direct attempt to abuse and humiliate Jews, and tarnish them with their own tragic history.
He claims that Luciana Berger is exaggerating anti-Semitism (which reduced her to tears in the House of Commons, after she recieved abuse among death threats and rape threats) and only wishes to "cry about it". Apparently she is trying to "pretend anti-Semitism is on the rise".
This thread is a report on Ste Matthew Murray. He is a prolific #Labour Party activist heavily involved at grassroots levels with the #JC4PM campaign - who has participated in, and sent me, extremist anti-Semitic propaganda and abuse, despite knowing that I'm Jewish.
Yesterday - despite my disagreements with her political views - I supported #RuthSmeeth, after hearing of her ordeal with anti-Semitic abuse. I criticised both @jeremycorbyn and @DerbyChrisW (who has since blocked me). As a result, Ste sent me ~20 provocative and abusive Tweets.
Despite knowing my background (after replying to previous Tweets which evidenced the fact I was Jewish), Ste sent me a meme depicting #AmberRudd - telling me "you are not on zee list", with a reference to Nazi Germany. He also sent me a picture of the Auschwitz death camp.
This is an *URGENT* message; the depth of #AntiSemitism within the British #Labour Party led by #Corbyn. It is IMPERATIVE - if you are Jewish, have Jewish friends and family or are interested otherwise - that you read this thread to understand the issue.
This is Michael Lee.
Michael Lee lives in Oxford, in the UK - and evidently votes for the #Labour Party (inspired by #Corbyn's opposition to #Israel), and has implied he remains a member. He is followed by a HUGE number of "#JC4PM" activists - including Cllrs - and follows them back. A sample. 👇
But that isn't the problem. The problem is that he incites VIOLENCE against innocent Jews with comments including "kick the Jewish" and insists that Zionist Jews are a "parasite", and claims that anti-Semitism is a "weapon" in itself, used to "kill mosquitos".
As yesterday was Israel’s National holocaust memorial day where six million Jews were sent to their deaths, it seems appropriate to write a thread explaining both the real #FarRight and the #FarLeft in Britain and their obsession with the Jews. 1/17
Why have #Labour under #Corbyn got so much in common with the #BNP under #NickGriffin that both he and the Daily Stormer have endorsed the #Labour Party? They must undoubtedly now be the broadest of broad churches. 2/17
Most of my followers will have heard of the horseshoe theory. The theory is both the #FarLeft and #FarRight at the extremes are so alike they almost touch. Both are totalitarian, authoritarian, anti-Semetic and hate filled. 3/17
This thread is about the #SelfID debate and why #labourlosingwomen is going to be such a massive problem for #Corbyn and his ever increasingly lunatic supporters. We have three biological genders, male, female and hermaphrodite but the % of hermaphrodites is tiny. 1/11
Now Eddie Izzard is part of the NEC of #UKLabour this issue is going to re-ignite rather than disappear as he recounted in his memoir of how he deliberately broke the law getting changed in a female bathroom: 2/11 vulture.com/2017/06/eddie-…
But why is there so much controversy about all of this and why is it justified? #UKLabour has alienated traditional #Labour female voters about having to compete with men who have decided to describe their gender as female #SelfID#labourlosingwomen 3/11
Action - not words - against Antisemitism starts here!
Obviously not with me, despite me being guilty as hell. But I can’t chop my own head off.
Not with the leadership team, ditto, because, well, they ARE me. Even though we all want Israel destroyed. So ... 1/
How about the General Secretary, Jennie Formby? She’s hired an antisemite, said some dodgy things but most of all, she’s ‘Len’s representative on Earth’. So can’t touch her, even though she will surely impede progress in antisemitism because 2/
... Len is chief agitator. He and Unite actively promote ‘Jewish Voice for Labour’ an organisation packed with vicious antisemites fronted by people born Jewish in order to undermine the Jewish community in the media. Len bankrolls me! So not him. Well ... 3/
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.
Upon reading London now has worse murder rate this year than New York and other soaring gang related crime statistics, felt compelled to write a thread about @SadiqKhan his role as Mayor and what his #priorities should be instead of what they appear to be. 1/15
He has taken action in ensuring (a) Mean tweets on social media are being policed and has also ensured some of his targets have been ex-Muslims for so-called “hate speech.” See @ShaziaHobbs for example. 2/15
(b) He avoids answering questions on the annual Al-Quds march in London which is pro-Hezbollah, “Hezbollah” means “Party of Allah” regularly features banners & chants of “death to the Jews” #Corbyn has been a speaker. 3/15
(Thread) To all @UKLabour candidates in the upcoming May local elections:
Unfortunately I will not be able to vote for you as a representative of the Labour Party; this is despite having been a #Labour voter myself in the past. Please allow me to explain briefly my reasons why.
After the sacking of Owen Smith, I cannot vote for @UKLabour in any shape or form at the moment due to Jeremy Corybn's approach towards #Brexit which I view as highly undemocratic and contradictory to what the Labour party is meant to stand for ("for the many, not the few"?).
The attitude towards #Brexit by @jeremycorbyn and other hardcore Brexiteers like him really is now bordering on the fascist, something I find deeply disturbing. It seems that dissenters are being crushed.
1. All of this flagged up by #Remain before A50 passed by the CONS & Labour..I remember distinctly our warnings that if it went thru Control passed to the EU27. It goes to prove how much damage both parties are prepared to inflict on our country to impose their ideology on us all
2. This price to buy a Transition that merely allows our politicians to kick the real impact down the road so they can con ppl into thinking things will be fine after #Brexit. If we don't #StopBrexitSaveBritain we'll be out on 29/03/19 & it will be too late to avoid the cliff.
3. This is all about leaving the EU 29/03/19..once out we've lost our BEST POSSIBLE DEAL, it will be Pay & Obey No Say on many issues ad infinitum; we'll never get back in. At that point we lose Rights...we're already losing jobs to the EU as companies relocate at least in part.
Two serving Jewish Labour councillors have spoken out for the first time to expose the “extraordinary” levels of “institutional anti-semitism” in Momentum’s Haringey heartland in north London - thread 👇
Joe Goldberg and Natan Doron said they had been repeatedly abused to their faces by pro-#Corbyn#Labour members — including fellow councillors — with crude allusions to their race or insulting references to the #Holocaust 👇
Goldberg the council’s cabinet member for economic development was accused by #Labour councillor of “bagel-barrel politics”
Same councillor said academy schools comparable to “Kristallnacht”, the Nazi pogrom in which 1,400 synagogues were attacked & dozens of Jews murdered 👇
A list of #Labour MPs who honourably called to sanction #Russia, and directly opposed #Corbyn's calls to "reduce tensions".
Chris Bryant called for RT "to be banned", and advised that sanctions on the Russian economy were not sufficient. Appeared to take a dig directly at Corbyn's prior intention to appease Russia.
Chris Leslie told the House that "there are certain circumstances that we take party difference"; carried on to say "when our country is potentially under attack, that is just not appropriate". This was an explicit to Corbyn's attempts to score political points.
My two bits on why #2019Elections (I believe they will be held in 2018) will be very different from 2014 and how @BJP4India seems to be completely unprepared for an opposition onslaught ➕ revival of Anti @narendramodi@AmitShah forces within NDA
When 7 different people not related to or connected with each other - and all respected by me - praised @narendramodi so much, I had no choice but to start tracking his doings and sayings mostly on MSM at that time as I was not on @Twitter
1. Worst national leadership in my lifetime forcing through the most damaging, misguided & missold policy I can remember. Ideology & vested self interest replace statesmanship, soundbites replace sound judgement & autocracy subverts democracy. #Brexit harms us irreparably #FBPE
2. A flawed Leave campaign based on lies, deceit, disingenuity & over simplification & a #Remain one fought w/o any positivity from the Govt & no real commitment from Labour, whose leader was virtually AWOL, did no justice to #Brexit complexity & betrayed our democratic process.
3. A mere 37% of voters/26.5% of the Ppl voted leave in a legally Non-Binding test of public opinion which has been corrupted, on the basis of an illegitimate political promise & interpreted as being the irrefutable Will of the Ppl.
The 1st is insufficient to claim the latter!
