I have posted some things in the last few years that I never believed I would see or hear in the city I grew up in, in the liberal, tolerant City of Sanctuary of Brighton & Hove. When I was first sent this vile message from a Labour Facebook group of someone suggesting that
“We need to march about this to the Synagogue in Hove,” in response to a candidate’s suspension for antisemitism, I cried. It took a reality check from a pragmatic friend to get me to stop shaking. It was reported to the police & CST immediately. I’m no shrinking violet.
I am always ready to stand up & defend my community or any underdog. That’s what I do. I work to defend, enable, empower those without a voice. The suggestion made by some that Alex Braithwaite’s suspension was racially motivated is a disgusting slur against everything I do
This isn’t about Israel. This isn’t about Palestine This is about clear outright antisemitism. I cannot fathom how anyone can try to defend this or whataboutery it. This has to stop. This isn’t just about the Labour Party. This is about good honest people standing up and
calling people out on this racism. That vile post remained on FB for at least 2 hours, unchallenged by anyone, before it was changed. There is a toxic environment fermenting in our society and it is up to us all to stand up to it. This isn’t about a nameless, faceless
community. This is about me, feeling safe in the community I grew up in, the community I got married in, the city I raised my children in. I don’t deserve to feel scared here & nor does anyone else in the Jewish community. #BeLouder
