This thread is so bad. There is nothing ‘subtle’ about Miller’s antisemitism. He literally published a Neo-Nazi who testified at David Irving’s trial.

You also do not need to listen to Jews of a certain political persuasion when assessing antisemitism from that persuasion. /1
In fact, the reason why we keep having so many problems is that Jews from the same political persuasion are often really bad at calling it out on their own side. See all the Right Wing apologists for Soros conspiracism or the very loud Corbynista Jews kosherising the Jezziah. /2
This is actually why the IHRA is such an important document, because it gives us a useful tool to work with. If we had to rely on a nebulous “left wing Jewish” voice on this, we’d get nowhere. Some so-called “left wing Jews” are defending Miller even now. /3
Another problem with this atrocious thread is that it mischaracterises Zionism and kosherises the pursuit to “end Zionism” as “not inherently antisemitic”. Zionism in 2021 is not “the regime of control”. You’re describing the policies of the current Israeli Government. /4
Zionism is the belief in the right to Jewish self-determination in our ancestral homeland. Anyone who wants to “end Zionism” is talking about destroying an entire country and the resultant chaos and bloodshed that would no doubt ensue if they were to succeed. /5
People who wish to “end” Zionism are almost always ineffective against Israel but inevitably oppressive towards Jews in the diaspora. This is why Corbyn could other British Jews as not understanding ‘English irony’, or why Sultana told a British Jew to jump off a cliff. /6
It’s why the NUS president described Birmingham Uni as a “Zionist outpost because of its large JSoc there”, and why the Left is so completely unable to deal with antisemitism. Zionism has been so thoroughly demonised in the left that it is now a shibboleth for virtue. /7
And all this has been kosherised by antizionist Jews who are playing with a fire they don’t even realise is hot. Rabidly antizionist fringe groups like Jewdas, JVL, INN, JVP and the Neturei Karta have provided the fuel to this fire actively playing interference for antisemites./8
Many people want to pretend that ‘Zionism’ is some kind of smokebomb that magically transforms some antisemitic calumny to “just criticism of Israel”. 90+% of the world’s Jews believe Israel has a right to exist. /9
You can’t ninja-exit your way out of the racist ramifications of your pet antizionist fantasy. At some point, the Left are going to have to reconcile with the fact that Israel exists and that the vast majority of the world’s Jews are grateful it does.

Am Israel Chai. /END

There is a deliberate distortionary ignorance being perpetrated particularly by 'socialist Jews' about Rivkah's shockingly glib use of 'The Jewish Question' in her Momentum rally speech the other night. 1/
First, they are pretending that Rivkah was merely quoting from Israel Panner's (aka I. Rennap) writing. She did initially, having clearly only selectively quoted one snippet without understanding either the context or the rest of his work. 2/
But, she continued this historical framing in a modern context: "I mean, this is entirely relevant to our moment right. We've just had a day when, and, you know, years, when antisemitism and 'The Jewish Question' as we might call it... have been used to distract us." 3/

Do White supremacists think you're the number one threat to their existence? Do your communal institutions and places of worship need 24hr security? Do you get told to go back to Israel or the ovens by Nazis? Even when you're dead, do your tombstones and memorials get defaced?1/6
Are you disproportionately the target of hate crimes? Are you able to freely express your identity online without being attacked, threatened or doxxed by White supremacists? Do your conf calls get Zoom-bombed? The comments on your timeline filled with Adolf memes and groypers?2/6
Were your people among the first groups of racialised 'other' defined during post-reconquista Spain and their 'purity of blood' cult? Are major works of Western classical literature replete with references to the otherness of your people in contrast with the noble White man? 3/6

Brave Labour Party whistleblower, Sam Matthews, went on national television and spoke of his suicidal feelings after his treatment by the Corbyn leadership. Jewdas, the most toxic voice of Corbynista anti-Zionist asajewry, are actively mocking and belittling suicidal ideation.1/7
Together with posh boy & Corbynista asajew James Schneider (love their upper class solidarity), who was Dir of Corbyn's Strategic Comms (imagine having that on your CV!), they are calling a suicidal person a "scab" and libelling him a racist and supporter of Holocaust denial. 2/7
Jewdas are not just deeply toxic trolls. They actively incite and embolden antisemites who often like and retweet their attacks against the Jewish Chronicle, the Board of Deputies, the IHRA, the Chief Rabbi, and Jewish MPs like Luciana Berger. 3/7

Imagine saying 'time to end arms sales to Israel' and justifying that by showing an image of the Israeli city of Ashkelon being attacked by Iranian and Qatari-funded Hamas rockets. Image
Those squiggly lines is the part-US-funded Iron Dome anti-missile defence protecting civilian lives. OJ wants to end this?
There are no military targets in Ashkelon. Those Hamas rockets are a war crime.

Remember that thread I did about Owen Jones' Spanish book cover? You may recall there was some nitpicking about a translated caption as it was not a primary source. I now have a hard copy of one of the artist's racist cartoons. You be the judge. Image
Galantara was very much in his prime the year that was published, but posed no objection to the caption: "Jewish capitalism wages a terrible relentless war every hour of every day". He had 2 cartoons in this edition. "Sometimes it takes a little blood to water the gold plant." Image
Alongside several other charming depictions of mere 'fatcats', as Owen called them, by other cartoonists. This one on an adjacent page is just called "Jewish freedom". Image

There's a viral video going around about Starkey's disgusting comments. The original tweeter whose tweet is getting the most traction claims to be against racism and violence yet has, as their Twitter banner, an image of PFLP terrorist Ghassan Kanafani. 1/5
Ghassan Kanafani is a popular figure in the revolutionary left for his writing. His fans. however, are extremely relaxed about his role in the PFLP – who he was main spokesperson for – during the Lod Airport massacre when 26 innocent civilians were shot dead and 80 wounded. 2/5
The PFLP were responsible for some of the most deadly terrorist attacks – including the Avivim school bus massacre (12 dead including 9 children), the bombing of Swiss Air flight 330 (48 dead) and the Qiryat Shmona massacre (18 dead, 8 children) and many more. 3/5
