More proof Corbynism is institutionally and culturally anti-Semitic. 🤢🤮
“I am now more careful with how I might use the term Zionist, because a once self-identifying political term has been increasingly hijacked by anti-Semites as code for Jews.” -- Jeremy Corbyn…

The anti-Semitism problem in Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party is way, WAY worse than anyone could have imagined. #Panorama #PanoramaDay
1/ Last night @michaeldweiss livetweeted BBC's #Panorama documentary on the rise of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn and below I'm posting the entire program in 2-minute installments. FULL:
2/ BBC's #Panorama is based on the testimony of 8 former Labour Party insiders, some of them directly involved with efforts to discipline party members who engaged in hate speech and harassment against Jews. FULL:
3/ The first major case of anti-Semitism under Corbyn's leadership was when Ken Livingstone (former mayor of London, mind you) claimed that the Zionist movement was in cahoots with the Nazis. FULL:
4/ Ken Livingstone was given a 2-year suspension as punishment for "bringing the party into disrepute," signaling that anti-Semitism would be tolerated within the ranks of Corbyn's Labour Party. FULL:
"The anti-Semitic abuse I received was what I was subjected to every single day. Telling me, 'Hitler was right, Hitler did not go far enough.' ... I do not think the Labour Party is a safe space for Jewish people..."
-- @izzyjengalenga

Full #Panorama:
10/ 🌹Corbyn's right-hand man Seumas Milne laughed when the director of Labour's disputes team told him high profile cases of anti-Semitism should be dealt with robustly and Jez should give a speech on 🇮🇱Israel's right to exist.

Full #Panorama:
11/ Liverpool's Labour MP gets harassed at party meetings by anti-Semitic new members and so does the team sent to investigate allegations of racist abuse. "Zionism" has become a substitute for the word "Jew" for anti-Semitic attacks.

Full #Panorama:
12/ @LouiseEllman came to party meetings to talk about jobs, sanitation, services while new members wanted to talk about Israel and Zionism. No anti-Semites were sanctioned or punished.

Full #Panorama:
13/ Labour members who supported Corbyn's bid for leadership in 2015 discuss the anti-Semitism crisis he created.

Full #Panorama:
14/ "Lifelong anti-racist" Jeremy Corbyn's Facebook comment years prior defending a clearly anti-Semitic mural come to light.

Full #Panorama:
