.@uklabour 1/11 JVL Co-chair Jenny Manson didn’t just support Peter Willsman’s remarks while on @bbcnews, but also claims that the embassy infiltrated the Labour conference to disrupt it.
2/11 After complaining about antisemitism whistleblowers, Manson said that Peter Willsman:

“criticised the involvement of the israeli embassy, which we know about because of the lobby, in Labour Party politics.”
3/11 “The party conference in 2016 - they were there - because we know they were there. People influenced by the embassy’s decision to try and disrupt the Labour Party”
4/11 Despite Willsman’s selection of recorded antisemitic remarks, Manson then claimed “there’s no evidence Peter Willsman’s an antisemite whatsoever”. Manson has “every confidence he has no antisemitic feelings”.
5/11 Given JVL’s record, Manson’s history and this latest conspiratorial outburst, JVL are not fit to comment on Labour antisemitism.

Manson’s previous track record includes:
- given a written warning over antisemitism

- compared the IHRA definition of antisemitism to a homophobic law (section 28)

- denied seeing antisemitism despite experiencing it herself
- supported Livingstone’s claim that Hitler “supported Zionism”

- wants more freedom of speech on Israel and “the Jews”

- said you can’t be antisemitic about Israelis
- defended Peled’s holocaust denial comments made at the JVL/FSOI meeting…

- defended Chris Williamson
- admits JVL were started in order to counter claims of antisemitism and working directly with offices of Corbyn and Chakrabarti

- admits she identified as Jewish as part of a campaign
10/11 - claims JVL aren’t anti-zionist, in the face of all evidence to the contrary

Only a few weeks ago another JVL leader, Glyn Secker, made an antisemitic speech accusing the Jewish community of being far right and ‘in the gutter with the rats’.
11/11 Once again, @BBCNews gave a platform to JVL, the tiny group of crank conspiracists, to spout their support for antisemitism
