It’s really hard to understand why some Jews are antisemitic. I didn’t know that could be possible to all this. But I’ve seen it with my own eyes. Antisemitic Jews a teeny tiny minority but they’re disproportionately shoved in our faces as heroes and examples for the rest of us.
Im not saying all 200 of Corbyn’s chosen people from this list are antisemitic, but enough have serious question marks over them, to not want to be associated with them if you’re not, and definitely not held up as anyone to actually listen to...surely?

I’ve asked @daverich1 about this before. 90-93% of British Jews hold the concept Israel somewhere in their identity as such. That leaves 7-10% of others, split between some ultra-orthodox and left/right politics. That leaves a generous max of 5% eg Jewish Voice for Labour (🤮).
Hearing over and over from the max 5% who indulge in anti-Israel based antisemitism (not legitimate criticism of Israel, that’s almost everyone, everywhere) and think Corbyn is fighting AS, rather than enabling it, is not ‘balanced’ reporting, it’s gaslighting the masses.
Ian’s voice represents the overwhelming majority of Jews and I for one thank him for speaking up, as he has so often in this. Well said @IanAustinMP and thank you.
