Masking an attack on the left as an inquiry into antisemitism

An inquiry into antisemitism is the most virtuous of inquiries even if inquiries into hostility to Muslims and immigrants might seem more pressing. Jonathan Rosenhead, JfJfP signatory, deplores the shoddy work of the Home Affairs SC which is happy to sink Labour under the label of antisemitism just in order to damage Corbyn.

Shana Tova / Rosh Hashanah Greetings

rosh-hashana

Shana Tova – Happy New Year to all our signatories, friends and supporters. May we grow in wisdom and experience in the coming year. The year begins at sundown on October 2nd.
Here, messages from JfJfP postings, JfJfP exec. committee, Orly Noy (why she’ll be on the Gaza Flotilla this New Year), Breaking the Silence, and Jeremy Corbyn.

The Guardian, behaving badly…

jews4jeremy

A week ago, the Guardian published a piece that unquestioningly reproduced demands from so-called leaders of the Jewish community that Jeremy Corbyn clarify claims that originated with a self-confessed Holocaust denier. Corbyn has answered these allegations numerous times but that didn’t stop them being simply regurgitated yet again. Jews for Jeremy sent an immediate response but, sad to say, the Guardian has chosen not to publish it. We reproduce it here.

Jews and Jeremy Corbyn

JFJFP-SIGNATORIES-BLOG-logo-web (2)

The desperate Daily Mail accusation that Jeremy Corbyn, Labour, is antisemitic has prompted a variety of letters. As has Lord Beecham’s assertion that JfJfP is bigoted because it does not campaign on Syria. Here, some ripostes, signed up as from signatories. A few are not so we ask their forgiveness for including them under the logo. Their views are not different from those of signatories.

Standing for truth against JC fantasies

Most of the words in this Jewish Chronicle headline are lies. It has mashed up whatever it can find to brand a left-winger antisemitic. The signatories to the letter to the paper are not ‘anti-Israel’. They are for Palestinian rights. Challenges to Jeremy Corbyn are the common discourse of the debate – not peculiar to pro-Israel bigots. The Jewish Chronicle’s belief that it is the centre of world antagonism is farcical and tragic.

Public meeting: boycott Veolia, end EU stake in settlements

Jeremy Corbyn MP will speak about the campaign against the multinational company Veolia and his Early Day Motion for ending any EU financial support for illegal Israeli settlements. 9th May. 7pm, University of London Union, Malet St, London WC1. No2VAG organised the meeting. JfJfP has consistently supported the campaign against Veolia. Read on for more about Veolia and the EDM.

How standing up for yourself became criminal ‘hate speech’

In the post-9/11 world, neo-con lobbies in the US and UK have successfully lumped together all political Muslims, whatever their politics, as pariah purveyors of hate speech
