Two serving Jewish Labour councillors have spoken out for the first time to expose the “extraordinary” levels of “institutional anti-semitism” in Momentum’s Haringey heartland in north London - thread 👇…
Joe Goldberg and Natan Doron said they had been repeatedly abused to their faces by pro-#Corbyn #Labour members — including fellow councillors — with crude allusions to their race or insulting references to the #Holocaust 👇
Goldberg the council’s cabinet member for economic development was accused by #Labour councillor of “bagel-barrel politics”

Same councillor said academy schools comparable to “Kristallnacht”, the Nazi pogrom in which 1,400 synagogues were attacked & dozens of Jews murdered 👇
This is not just on social media.

Many members have repeated assertions about Jews

having big noses;

controlling the media; and

being wealthy 👇
It has become impossible to operate as a #Jewish councillor in the #Haringey party without having your views and actions prejudged or dismissed in terms that relate to your ethnicity 👇
Doron said he was twice harangued while out canvassing not by voters on the doorstep but by fellow #Labour members he was working with

One of them started having a rant about how Israel was a Nazi country & I had no right to be offended because Israel had no right to exist 👇
The 2 Councillors are among more than 20 serving #Labour Haringey councillors who have resigned or been deselected and will be replaced in May’s local elections by pro-#Momentum candidates. 👇
#Harringey council, which is safely #Labour, is almost certain to become the first run by the hard-left group.

After Goldberg announced his retirement, a Haringey #Momentum activist, Shahab Mossavat, tweeted: “At least [you] will have more time to count your money.” 👇
Doron’s replacement as a candidate, Charley Allan, was suspended from the party last year for using the insulting term “Zio”.

Doron said: “People are worried & scared and #Haringey #Labour is definitely not a safe space for #Jews.

This is 100% not the party I joined.” 👇
Goldberg said he had made at least five formal complaints to local officials but got nowhere.

“I complained to the #Labour whip, Lorna Reith, but she told me #Antisemitism was a ‘debatable term’,” 👇
On Holocaust Memorial Day in January 2015, #Labour whip, Lorna Reith, retweeted a picture equating Israel’s military attacks on Gaza to the #Holocaust 👇
In 2016 #Momentum’s then-chairman in Haringey, Phil Rose, admitted sharing material from an anti-semitic, far-right American website on the Tottenham #Labour Party Facebook group

Rose posted a link to, a recognised hate site 👇
Rose's post was in a discussion about Jackie Walker, a national #Momentum activist suspended after saying that #Jews were the “chief financiers of the slave trade”.
