Whatever the merits of this argument: the time anyone from @NovaraMedia gets to lecture any Jew on what or isn’t racism passed months ago, particularly as @michaeljswalker is guilty of doing the same thing to British Jews he’s accusing @hugorifkind of doing to the Palestinians
Example: to discuss AS in Labour hosted an extreme anti-Zionist Jewish man from *America* to rubbish the *British* Jewish experience of Left antisemitism.

Finkelstein sandwiched his appearance on Novara with slots on David Icke’s Holocaust denying radio show & Galloway's show.
Finkelstein then wrote an article going further than denial by suggesting that AS tropes about Jews are true.

"If its anti-Semitism to believe that “Jews think they are better than other people,” then most Jews would appear to be infected by this virus"…
Yet so often talks of "unequal power relations" in regards to other minority groups - when there are twice as many people in Labour as there are Jews in Britain.

I've met Michael, he's lovely, but the ship of good faith set sail a while ago, so while we're here...
When asserting that all 4 examples which mention Israel should be removed from IHRA – including the Nazi metaphor – insisted that Labour should make it clear that the “pro-Israel lobby uses antisemitism to silence criticism of Israel" in a thread rich with the socialism of fools.
Dabble in Holocaust relativism then admonished @HolocaustUK for their “fucked priorities” as their chief exec had the tumerity to say Israel isn’t committing “genocide.”

Jews don't have to support Israel to be shamed; not admitting Israel does stuff it doesn't do is enough now.
Continually lauds Chris Wiliamson MP but refuses to pass comment (depsite being asked) on his ritual goading of British Jews and defence of antisemites. Perhaps because a top Labour MP publically opposing the expulsion from Labour of guys who chat about...
...Tesco having "Jewish blood" and another who is receptive to talk of "Jew funding" of the Tories - and slavish support for Willsman et al - doesn't fit well with denying the severity or seriousness of the antisemitism problem in Labour, I guess.

Defended a conspiratorial documentary directed overseas by a state broadcaster - which is banned from reporting on any of the horrific human rights abuses in its own country - but apparently it's legit to secretly stalk & film young female British Labour Jews CRYING after abuse./
for the purposes of depicting them as part of a Zionist conspiracy because….geopolitics or Israel or something.

Novara’s output on this Kosher conspiracy on the same page as David Icke.


Fuck that.

And fuck anyone who thinks this is ok.

Heavily pushed, as a "white, liberal, civilised" non-Jew, a Potemkin-esque letter from 84 BAME groups which excluded Jews as a racialized minority and compared opposition to IHRA to opposition to Tommy Robinson.

Like that could possibly end well for anyone concerned ffs.
And all the while his closest Novara colleagues call for the investigation of 68 British Rabbis or go on TV to talk about Jewish exceptionalism – not seeming to care that they are echoing behaviour of people towards Jews throughout centuries whom they would not want to emulate.
Add to that the general Novara Twitter bullying of many decent people like @dijdowell who take a stand on antisemitism by the same Novara people who then, to borrow a phrase, go on TV and turn on a sixpence to argue it's not that bad to use the Nazi metaphor with Israel.
So solidarity with Hugo Rifkind. And anyone who Novara media people have rounded on for stuff to do with antisemitism - and there are many. On this issue they are now so far into the sewer they must actually enjoy the taste of their own poo poo.
