Knowing what we know about persecution of minorities by big centralized government, statism, it’s amazing to me that minorities still flock to political parties that advocate just tha, and are then surprised when they rear their ugly heads.
Jeremy Corbyn is slammed for comparing Israel to ISIS at anti-Semitism event at which Jewish Labour MP storms out after she is attacked by hard-left activist
The Labour leader (top left) was accused of comparing Netanyahu government to ‘self-styled Islamic states or organisations’ at an event which also saw Ruth Smeeth storm out (right and bottom left). The MP said she had made a formal complaint about the Labour leader’s actions at the launch of a report into anti-Semitism today when she was shouted at by a Momentum activist. Ms Smeeth walked out of the event in tears today after Marc Wadsworth accused of working ‘hand in hand’ with a right wing newspaper. The Stoke on Trent North MP today said Mr Corbyn’s ‘failure to intervene is final proof that he is unfit to lead’. Wes Streeting, one of Labour’s newest MPs, today said the event showed Mr Corbyn had lost any ‘moral authority’ as Labour leader and told MailOnline it was further proof he should quit. Mr Corbyn, who used the event to condemn anti-Semitism and all racism, triggered further controversy when he appeared to compare the Israeli government to ISIS. Ms Chakrabarti’s report made as its first recommendation that racial epithets such as ‘z**’ or ‘p***’ should have ‘no place in Labour Party discourse’ going forward and also recommended Labour members avoid using Adolf Hitler metaphors. The inquiry was ordered after ex-Mayor of London Ken Livingstone launched a rant about Hitler on TV and radio a week before the local elections.
