Recently Ellie Reeves #Labour MP was reportedly facing a vote of "No Confidence" and "Deselection" @elliereeves received a lot of support from Jess Phillips, Tom Watson etc. No motion was tabled with her CLP so the furore over a pregnant Labour MP being deselected was nonsense.
So let us move on about 1 week from this bogus story to the equally spurious #PanoramaHatchetJob about #Labour and #Antisemitism The usual suspects showed their sham horror of the apparent problems in Labour. #TomWatson #jessphillips
Tom Watson belittled, harangued, bullied and called into question the reliability and fitness of @JennieGenSec to act as General Secretary. Some might question my point on reliability etc. But the image I have attached which Watson and Phillips promote does exactly that.
He encourages people to take complaints to the Jewish Labour Movement who has a questionable affiliation with the #LabourParty You may ask why it is questionable? Put simply you do not not have to be a Labour member to join!
Had @DerbyChrisW not been suspended and acted in the same way as #Watson not only would there have been uproar but he would more than likely have been suspended. Before we forget why these attacks on Jennie Formby are malicious I would like you tor read Jennie's letter to Watson.
So #TomWatson was undermining the role of the General Secretary while she was undergoing chemo therapy for cancer. Yes folks she is having treatment for Cancer. She is not pregnant like @elliereeves who thanked her supporters but has made no attempt to support Jennie Formby
So why are Tom Watson and Jess Phillips asking people to direct their complaints to JLM and join JLM. Could it be they are members of Labour Friends of Israel? bit.ly/2LLoVHc lfi.org.uk/about/
So both organisations appear to suggest they are in favour of a peaceful 2 state solution between Israelis and Palestinians but rarely do they say how this should be achieved. Perhaps honouring UN agreements would be a start?
So what sort of people are Tom Watson and Co aligning themselves to?
Moshe Yaalon who said Israel would not shrink from targeting civilian neighborhoods in the event of a future conflict in Lebanon or Gaza: “We are going to hurt Lebanese civilians to include kids of the family.
Ben Gantz’s Israeli army Chief of Staff (2011-2015) boasted about killing many “terrorists” (most of the killed actually being civilians) while Education Minister Naftali Bennet’s boast of having “killed lots of Arabs and there’s no problem with that”.
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked repeated these words about #Palestinian mothers. "They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there."
MK Eli Ben Dahan, Deputy Defense Minister referring to Palestinians said: “To me, they are like animals, they aren’t human.” These Israeli politicians or former politicians are meant to be the face of a civilised society.
There are glaring historical references to describing people as being inhuman but people are not allowed to make those connections because they are deemed #antisemitic
So why has this thread gone from criticism of #TomWatson and Jess Phillips to highlighting comments made by Israeli politicians. Well there are a number of reasons! Rarely does LFI or JLM criticise such comments. They cannot offer a solution to the 2 state question.
Membership of JLM is not restricted to Labour Members. Encouragement to make complaints to JLM is a concerted effort to undermine the General Secretary of the Labour party and the complaints system! #IStandWithJennieFormby @threadreaderapp Unroll
