Today's Sunday Telegraph reports a story from the new edition of my book, about an antisemitic article that @johnmcdonnellMP had removed from the @LRCinfo website. But who wrote the article? And what happened to its author? /1
The article claimed "The Labour Party has become a pawn of Zionist organisations", amongst other conspiracy nonsense. It was written by Mike Cushman, secretary of Jewish Voice for Labour, and first published by Free Speech On Israel /2
The Labour Representation Committee & Labour Briefing both reposted the article, then removed it at John McDonnell's insistence (he is former Chair & Honorary President of LRC & still influential in them when he wants to be). Then... nothing /3
Nobody reported Cushman to the Labour Party for antisemitism. The article is still on the Free Speech On Israel website. Cushman is still secretary of @JVoiceLabour. All swept under the carpet and forgotten about /4
In my book I detail some of the other articles about antisemitism still on the @LRCinfo website. It's not pretty. The "Tory Jewish lobby" used to be something the BNP would complain about. Now it's Labour activists spreading this muck /5
Removing one article is easy. Removing a whole antisemitic mindset and the political culture it generates is another matter. /End
