For years I have been loyal to a country I love and engaged in its politics.
On the far right on the rise with its love of Soros Tropes I as a Jew am seen as part of a nefarious global plot. /1
They act on this too through terrorist attacks on a kosher supermarket for instance. /3
They turn a blind eye to antisemitism and if they do call it out its only very halfheartedly.
A lot would not act in this towards other minorities, but caring goes out of the window for Jews. /4
They will give fine speches and honeyed words. They will even speak at rallies.
However when push comes to shove they will stand shoulder to shoulder with antisemites over me due to tribal loyalty. /5
I am so desperate for allies in the fight against antisemitism that I get taken in hook, line and sinker. /7
On the one side we have tiny groups and individuals providing cover for antisemitism and engaging in antisemitism. /8
It was a philosemite party with the likes of Manny Shinwell, Eric Moonman, Nye Bevan, Dick Crossman and many more passionately speaking out against antisemitism. /11
They were philosemites. They would fight physically antisemites. /13
It is led by a leader in @jeremycorbyn who has spent his entire political career hand in glove with notorious antisemites. They have shaped his worldview. /14
I do not have trouble finding antisemitism, shockingly there is so much in the antisemitic sewer I can not include it all.
Every antisemitic comments feels like an attack on me for being alive./17
The majority are and I am talking just about the ones making the comments, not those liking or loving the comments. /18
If your @campbellclaret and vote for the Lib Dems in the EU elections you will be expelled in the time it takes to say his name./24
These are the fairweather friends I talked about earlier who I was duped by.
They told me #LabourAntisemitism sickened them, yet campaigned for Lisa Forbes despite her record of antisemitism.
'Some friend' /25
And you know what many of many fellow Brits will either not bat an eyelid or welcome it as they don't care or don't like Jews. /26
To ensure the safety of our community we have to have a ring of steel around our places of worship, communal centres and schools.
As @CST_UK who record antisemitism, this is not for show, this is what is needed for Jews to live in peace. /29
I've become immune to it, reading it has become as routine as eating breakfast. /30
I will if @jeremycorbyn becomes PM feel an unwanted stranger in a country I love with all my heart and soul. /33
Fed up of being hated, dismissed and insulted for being Jews, whilst others turn a blind eye.
Why do they hold so much prejudice for me being Jewish? Being Jewish means no harm to them. It does not make me a bad person. /34
That question fill me with dread, so much dread I cannot face answering it. /35
a). Listen to our concerns, don't ignore them or say its blown out of proportion.
B) When you see antisemitism.#BeLouder and act. /36
d) Don't preach fine words and then not back it up. /37
f) Write to your MP, take part in protests, sign petitions, blog and
Rekindle my faith in the British people.
Let's be louder, prouder then the antisemites and show we are far more numerous and defeat them.
That's the bright future I as a British Jew want to look forward to. /40
It helps if I feel the thread is not in vain, so please share widely as then I feel the warm glow of solidarity. /41
