Going to unpack this thread from @jsternweiner which is actually a really nasty attack on the integrity of the wonderful Karen Pollock, the Chief Executive of The Holocaust Memorial Trust - 'cos er, that's what Labour's antisemitism deniers & enablers are now reduced to.
Firstly, Miko Peled and his "Holocaust yes or no?" comment. It is debatable what he meant. The debate was about the IHRA definition and what is or isn't antisemitic, not a debate on Free Speech. Of course the Chief Executive of the Holocaust Memorial Trust might raise an eyebrow.
What Peled did say AND mean at that meeting was the proposal to no-platform unspecified Zionists like you would, um... Neo-Nazis.

So, is that the 60% of British Jews who are Zionists or the full 93% who count Israel as part of their identity to be treated like Nazis, Jamie?
Which is exactly the kind of false equivalance that Karen warns about. Making this far more than a "lone alleged remark by one speaker at a fringe event" particualrly as the JVL member who claimed she "broadly agreed" with Peled's comments got a standing ovation at Conference.
Jamie describes Peled as an "American-Israel peace activist" - so presumably he can get away with antsemitic filth like this?

Given this was widely publicised before his visit to Conference, one wonders how much antisemitism Peled's hosts & defenders are willing to accomodate?
Jamie actually expects the Chief Executive of @HolocaustUK to remain passive when the Leader of the Opposition uses one of the only survivors willing to make the Nazi analogy with Israel in order to legitimise Holocaust Inversion and do so on Holocaust Memorial Day. Grow up.
@KarenPollock100 has, to my knowledge, spent her entire adult life around Holocaust Survivors & presumably knows a thing or two about them. Also impotant to note (and terribly sad) that Meyer claimed Israel was behind 9/11-something Jamie doesn't mention.…
And he finishes with a straw man and some semantic wordplay to justify basically calling Karen a liar - when she did nothing of the sort.

The amount of time that woman has spent alongside all sorts of genocide survivors. This thread is quite depraved.

And of course Jews who slander other Jews like this, and debase their legitimate concerns about antisemitism - whilst talking absolute rubbish - are the perfect fit for great and good of Novara Media - @AaronBastani and @michaeljswalker to aid their brand of denialism.
You see Jamie, Aaron and the guys, they all militantly oppose antisemitism in Labour. They just couldn't find the time to y'know highlight these three apparent Holocaust deniers who were selected to stand for Labour at the Locals.

So much antisemitism, so little time, I guess.
Because of course, Karen found the time to do that because she isn't in the business of whitewashing antisemitism for her own political expediency.

I strongly suggest @jsternweiner goes and tries one of his oh so clever threads on someone else.
