The alliance between Islamic supremacists and the hard Left has been abundantly documented over the years. Labour is completely in thrall to the agenda of Islamic supremacist advocacy groups: ignore and excuse jihad terror, demonize and marginalize those who stand up against it, try to crush all dissent through vilification of the dissenters, etc. So it’s no surprise that Labour would also have imbibed the Islamic hatred for Jews and Israel.
“Labour has ‘serious anti-Semitism problem’, peers warn,” BBC, April 28, 2016:
The Labour Party has a “serious problem” with anti-Semitism, a senior Labour peer has warned.
Lord Levy told BBC Newsnight he believed anti-Semitism existed across the political divide, but it seemed “more prominent” within Labour.
It follows the party’s decision to suspend MP Naz Shah from the party over comments about Israel on social media, pending an investigation.
Ms Shah has made a “profound apology” in the Commons for her remarks.
The MP for Bradford West has been widely criticised for Facebook posts she made before she became an MP, in which she suggested, among other things, that Israel should be moved to the United States.
Lord Levy, who was Tony Blair’s envoy and chief fundraiser, told the BBC her comments displayed “ignorance”, and he was left “scratching his head with despair as to how people like this can enter our parliament with such a lack of knowledge, discretion and sensitivity”.
His comments were echoed by cross-bench peer Baroness Neuberger, who claimed Labour’s problem of anti-Semitism was “attached to Jeremy Corbyn becoming leader”, and added that it was “an issue with the hard left”.
Labour has faced claims of growing anti-Semitism in its ranks. Earlier this year a Labour Luton councillor was suspended from the party after claiming Hitler was the “greatest man in history”.
Jeremy Corbyn has insisted anti-Semitism will not be tolerated but some of his MPs say the party leadership is not doing enough to stamp it out.
Shadow education secretary Lucy Powell, Ed Miliband’s former chief of staff, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme the party “had to do more” to tackle anti-Semitism and MP Lisa Nandy said it had to be more “pro-active”.
But Ken Livingstone – the former London Mayor who is a close ally of Mr Corbyn – said Ms Shah’s remarks were not anti-Semitic and the suspension was unnecessary.
He told LBC Radio: “What we have at the moment is a lot of people making a big issue about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. In 47 years I have never heard anyone say anything anti-Semitic.
“We expelled a couple of people from the Labour Party early on for saying things that could clearly be interpreted as anti-Semitic.
“This is not that; this is an over-the-top comment about the horrendous conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
Lord Levy told BBC London Mr Livingstone was “living on another planet” and “well past his sell-by date” if he believed Ms Shah’s comments were not anti-Semitic.
Ms Shah was also defended by George Galloway, the former Respect MP who she defeated at the general election, who said in an article that her comments were “half-witted” but not anti-Semitic, and claims to the contrary were “just another stick to beat Corbyn out of office with”….
