THREAD 1/ You know what (as a non-Jew) what I'm really b sick of??? People claiming that #antisemitism in the #Labour party is exaggerated/made up. Which in itself is antisemitic - as you're basically saying that 99% of British Jews are liars who are trying to exploit politics
2/ It also angers me because it shocks a complete lack of knowledge of Jewish concerns. Do such people actually know any Jewish people to be able to demonise a community and accuse them of being politically manipulating people just out to demonise Jeremy Corbyn??
3. For a start there is no excuse/denial - there are major problems. Corbyn has acted appaulingly yet people are still in denial/continue to defend it. What is wrong with people?!
4. Calling Hamas "friends", sharing antisemitic murials, grieving with terrorists/terrorist sympathisers, ignoring the concerns of the community and basically perpetuating the "Good Jew" vs. "Bad Jew" narrative = CLEAR EXAMPLES OF ANTISEMITISM
5. And this is from a "leader" of a major political party. There there's the institutional denial in the party to address the utter vile coming out of supporters mouths - just look on social media and it's clear. Where's the responsibility there?!
6. Then what about the VILE treatment of @lucianaberger who had to leave her own party??? Why are such people in such denial. They claim such concrete facts (opinions) when they probably don't know 1% of the reality of the British Jewish community
7. Absolutely does my nut in and it makes me not only angry but SAD. SAD for my Jewish friends and colleagues. THEY deserve better. WE ALL DESERVE BETTER than this rotten horrible mess, this ignorance and this hatred
8. A nation of adults, a nation of apparent democracy, yet we're in a mess. And the (wrong) people are being blamed. Jeremy Corbyn has let his party down, his supporters down and society down - NOT ONLY THE JEWISH COMMUNITY.
9. If people care about racism, Islamophobia, anti-Muslims hatred, then why don't they care about #antisemitism????? Just NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
