.@uklabour (thread). Despite Jewish support for Jeremy Corbyn being at an all-time low, a loyal few wrote a letter of support to give the opposite impression. @jeremycorbyn used them to insist he has Jewish support.
But we recognised many names as being JVL members and their committed supporters. Here’s some more info about a few of their key members who signed....…
JVL leader and treasurer, Mike Cushman, who was profiled by @CST_UK, said:

- Zionists control British politics
- zionists collaborated with Hitler
- Jews are responsible for antisemitic attacks
JVL leader Jonathan Rosenhead:

- engaged in ‘baseless’ fantasies about the Holocaust, in which he held Jews partly responsible
- was caught lying about not seeing evidence of antisemitism when on Radio 4…
JVL founder Rachel Lever:

- defended a Holocaust denier
- shared posts comparing israel to Nazi Germany
- openly advocates for the end of Israel, while saying JVL members should keep their anti-Zionism secret.
JVL leader Leah Levane:

- said Jews are “often agents” of exploitation
- accused the Jewish community on a demo against antisemitism of being part of a political conspiracy against Jeremy Corbyn
JVL leader Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi:

- countered the Jewish demo against antisemitism by walking around with a yellow star saying ‘Jews 4 Jez’ on.
- said the Holocaust is something ‘inflicted on other people’
- after a comment which included Holocaust revision, she described it as ‘brilliant’
- was part of a group who tried to intimidate and threaten councillors, to stop them adopting the IHRA definition of antisemitism
- spoke at the antisemitic Hezbollah AlQuds day March
- laughed about antisemitism live on the radio
- hosted an event where the Holocaust was questioned and calls to expel Jewish members from the Labour Party were cheered…
- supported Livingstone’s comments that Hitler was a Zionist before he ‘went mad’.
- says most Jews disagree with her because "the Zionist movement has successfully occupied the minds of Jews worldwide since the Holocaust."
JVL member and NCC member Stephen Marks:

- backed Jackie Walker
- said those raising antisemitism complaints "are the one who should be suspended"
- opposed IHRA definition
- backed campaign to deregister antisemitism charity
- signed a letter dismissing Labour antisemitism as “an attempt to influence local elections”
- defended disgraced academic Norman Finkelstein
JVL member Jo Bird says:

- racism against Jews has been privileged
- talks about “Jew process”
- defends Jackie Walker
JVL member Elleanne Green:

- admin of the notorious antisemitic Fb group ‘Palestine live’
- protested outside the Holocaust museum
- shouted ‘free palestine’ at a Jewish author leaving a theatre
- shares antisemitic conspiracy theories
- interacts with Holocaust deniers
- posts Neo-Nazi propaganda
- is a close friend of Jeremy Corbyn…
JVL leader Ian Saville, who tried to gain support from Holocaust denier Gilad Atzmon
JVL leader Glyn Secker:

- twice promoted the conspiracy theory that Israel supports ISIS, using an antisemitic conspiracy website
- mocked @jewishlabour for meeting in a pub because they are a Jewish organisation
- At the launch of ‘Labour Against Racism and Fascism,’ spoke against a proposal to include antisemitism with other forms of racism
- claimed that antisemitism isn’t an issue in Britain, despite Jewish people being the most likely to be attacked
- says the Jewish community organisation BoD are using antisemitism to attack Corbyn and that there are 'no grounds' for Jackie Walker's suspension.
JVL steering group member, Diana Nesley:

- justified using the perjorative term for Jews coined by the KKK “zios”
- acted as a witness to support Livingstone
- describes an extreme antisemite as a “human rights defender”
- blames Israel for antisemitism
These are the minuscule group of extremists encouraging @jeremycorbyn to claim he has support in the Jewish community. In truth the Jewish community are united against Jeremy Corbyn to an unprecedented degree, with JVL acting as a human shield to protect him.
