Over the last two days I've been investigating antisemitism in Corbyn supporting Facebook groups.

Here I show an image, highlighting just a few of the many antisemitic comments I have come across.

Remember this comes from self-styled Corbyn supporters. /1
#LabourAntisemitism
From top to bottom I explain the troubling nature of these three comments.

First to Terry Kelly's:

1. This is an example of demonisation of Israel crossing over in to antisemitic tropes around Jewish power seeking to control UK politics and pull the strings of politicians. /2
Now I look at the antisemitic nature of Nye Davies response to Terry Kelly.

First of Nye totally agrees with Terry's antisemitic trope.

Then Nye shows how demonisation of Israel can cross over in to antisemitism, through the idea of media owners spreading their propaganda. /3
The worst of these three remarks by far is Nye Davies's final remark.

It is so repugnant I am going to repeat it in full.

"Financed by Kosher Nostra Funds of course." /4
Now its time to unpack this remark in all its antisemitism.

- Take the first two words financed by - its the idea that Jews have endless amounts of money to buy the media, politicians, bankers etc - it goes back to the idea of Jewish elites controlling the world. /5
Time to look at the use of the term Kosher Nostra Funds by looking at each word in turn.

- The use of the word kosher has sadly often been misused by antisemites to talk about a so-called kosher conspiracy against the world on behalf of world Jewry. /6
- The second word Nostra is clearly a play on the Italian Mafia's name the Cosa Nostra. Please look at the second definition of Mafia in the image provided.
- This suggests Jews are an organised homogeneous group who will stop at nothing to keep its power and criminal gains. /7
Now its time to look at Nye's last two words.

- Of course - In Nye's world it is of course self-evident that powerful, organised criminal Jews are financing via a Kosher conspiracy to control British politics and most probably the Labour Party for nefarious ends. /8
The Corbyn supporting Facebook group these antisemitic remarks were made in was Jeremy Corbyn will be Prime Minister.

This group contained antisemitic comments including from Nye Davies that are in line with the thinking behind The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. /9
What I have revealed is just a snippet of the antisemitism running like an open sewer in a variety of Corbyn supporting Facebook groups.

In the last week the antisemitic rhetoric in said groups has become even worse focused on attacking Luciana Berger. /10
Over the next week I will be highlighting much more of people in these groups present, engaged and involved in antisemitism.

It will stand as a reminder that anyone saying that #LabourAntisemitism is made up, a smear and non-existent is wrong. /11
Regardless of you political background, race, religion, colour, creed and gender we need to stand up to all forms of hate, including antisemitism.

So please retweet, like and share my latest thread widely. /12

After all as @RachelRileyRR says #BeLouder.
