Luciana Berger cited #Labour becoming "institutionally #AntiSemitic" as a key reason for quitting the party.

Despite all the evidence, there are those who still deny the severity of #LabourAntisemitism. Here's a thread detailing how institutionalised it truly is...
Starting at the very top with @JeremyCorbyn.

He infamously referred to #Hamas and #Hezbollah as "friends". Both organisations call for the extermination of #Israel, and regularly carry out attacks against #Jews. They're also both officially classified as #terrorist groups.
Perhaps the most well-known incident is #Corbyn's attendance at a wreath-laying ceremony in Tunisia in 2014, which honoured the terrorists who murdered 11 #Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Mr Corbyn claimed to be "present but not involved".
#Corbyn infamously suggested that British #Zionists "do not understand English irony", despite "having lived in this country probably all their lives".

This is straight-up racist othering. Imagine suggesting that any other group of Britons do not understand English irony!
#Corbyn also surrounds himself with #AntiSemites who share similar rhetoric.

In October 2015, shortly after being elected leader, he appointed Seamus Milne as Director of Strategy and Communications. Here Milne is shown expressing support for Hamas.
Another anti-Semitic figure that Corbyn has surrounded himself with is @MikoPeled - a Holocaust denier who has said that if Jews want a state, "they should build it on the moon".

Here they are at Labour's 2018 conference.
Shadow chancellor is possibly the 2nd highest position in an opposition party - currently held by @JohnMcDonnellMP.

In 2012, McDonnell claimed that #Israel is "attempting genocide against #Palestinians" - a claim that is both libelous & evidently false.

Less than two weeks ago, McDonnell defended Jackie Walker, former vice chair of @PeoplesMomentum, who claimed that "#Jews were the chief financiers of the slave trade". McDonnell felt that she had received unfair criticism for her abhorrent remarks.

Chris Williamson (@DerbyChrisW), MP for Derby North, was branded a "Jew baiter" by @JewishLabour after he signed and shared a petition calling for Holocaust denier and vile anti-Semite @GiladAtzmon's ban from an #Islington festival to be rescinded in December 2018.
Williamson also claimed that Ken Livingstone (@Ken4London) fought "all forms of racism".

The former Mayor of London has a long history of anti-Semitism - he claimed that "Hitler supported #Zionists" &, in his first speech as mayor, implied that capitalists are worse than Hitler.
Margaret Tyson works for the CLP in Wavertree, #Liverpool, where she works towards getting Labour representatives elected to the local council.

She recently accused Jewish MP #LucianaBerger of working for "Zionists, whose Nazi masters taught them well".

The chair of Wavertree CLP, Dr Alex Scott-Samuel (@buzhna) called for a no-confidence vote in @LucianaBerger whilst she was 8 months pregnant. Her crime? Calling out #LabourAntisemitism.

As a side point, this lovely Scott-Samuel chap was fired by the University of Liverpool in 2017 for promoting unfounded anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Rothschild world domination. Despite that, he's still chair of Wavertree CLP.

I could keep on going, but I think this thread comprehensively shows how "institutionalised" #AntiSemitism is within the #LabourParty - from the leader and the chancellor, to local politicians. It truly has spread to all levels of the party.
