Andy - I can educate you, as you are wrong.
(1) The tweet is a lie. Only approx 1 million Muslim voters in a General Election. Not all Labour. Only 3 million ethnic minority voters in total: one third are Muslim. This is a good reason to delete the tweet.
(2) Tweet wrong to infer all Muslims are anti-semitic.

Another good reason to delete the tweet?

Best recent evidence is the CST study. *Have you read it?* Majority of Muslim respondents did not accept any of the anti-semitic tropes. But larger minority than general population
(3) CST study: higher prevalence of anti-semitism among minority of Muslims is very similar in scale to those who identify as 'very right-wing'

Groups like LeaveEU and Breitbart (if serious about anti-semitism) would be tackling prejudice among your base, not stoking it.
Here is the CST data… If you want to challenge anti-semitism among British Muslims (as we should) will you please commit to **actively** challenging it within the right, as we demand of Mr Corbyn on the left. (There is more on the right than the left)
When @BoardofDeputies and @stephenpollard editor of the Jewish Chronicle, are among those asking you to delete the tweet, I think any *sincere* opponent of anti-semitism would do so. Otherwise, most people will conclude you're using anti-semitism to troll people & attack Muslims.
