A foul and ugly witch-hunt against Corbyn


The hate-filled and indefensible attacks, waged by the Zionist lobby and its hangers-on to silence critics, relies utterly on falsehoods and the suppression of truth. In this, it is aided and abetted by the mainstream news media and timid politicians. The Zionists pretend to speak and act on behalf of the global Jewish community but the voices of Jews wishing to counter the lobby’s propaganda are hardly ever allowed to reach the public.

In November last year, the outgoing Jewish Speaker of the House of Commons and former Conservative MP, John Bercow, said in an interview (57 minutes in) with British GQ magazine last month: “I myself have never experienced anti-Semitism from a member of the Labour Party, point one. And point two, though there is a big issue and it has to be addressed, I do not myself believe Jeremy Corbyn is anti-Semitic.” Bercow also told the interviewer: “I’ve known him for the 22 years I’ve been in Parliament. Even, actually, when I was a right-winger we got on pretty well . . . I’ve never detected so much as a whiff of anti-Semitism.”

Re-opening Auschwitz

There is a shocking video (about 40 mins in) in which a Sunday Telegraph columnist, Simon Heffer, claimed with absolutely no proof, that Corbyn “wants to reopen Auschwitz”. When the interviewer responded that such an accusation was completely unacceptable, Heffer replied: “I’m sure, in 1933, they had similar conversations in Germany: “the Fuehrer’s never going to do that”. The Jewish philosopher, Noam Chomsky (famed American linguist, cognitive scientist, historian and political activist) responded to the shameful nature of these remarks: “The way charges of anti-Semitism are being used in Britain to undermine the Corbyn-led Labour Party is not only a disgrace but also – to put it simply – an insult to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust . . .”

Misleading accusations

In an article published by the Israel Institute of New Zealand (IINZ) on 12 September 2017, an anonymous Shalom Kiwi writer asks, “why is Jeremy Corbyn such a toxic name in Jewish circles?” The piece then continues: “He  participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the grave of one of the terrorists behind the massacre of 11 Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich in 1972.” The intention of this, clearly, is to imply that Corbyn was sympathetic towards anti-Jewish terrorism. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Guardian quoted Corbyn as saying: “I was there because I wanted to see a fitting memorial to everyone who has died in every terrorist incident everywhere because we have to end it. You cannot pursue peace by a cycle of violence; the only way you can pursue peace [is] by a cycle of dialogue.”

The wreath-laying actually took place in 2014 at an event, honouring those killed by an Israeli air strike on the Tunisian capital in 1985, that had targeted the Palestine Liberation Organiation’s (PLO) offices. A large proportion of the dead were “women and children, many of them Tunisians,” according to a New York Times report on the incident. At the time, the Tunisian Ambassador to France, Hedi Mabrouk, called the strike “state terrorism” on Israel’s part. In 2018, as part of the anti-Corbyn campaign, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu accused the Leader of the UK Labour Party, via Twitter, of having laid a wreath on “the graves [ic] of the terrorist who perpetrated the Munich massacre.”

And who was this terrorist? The first thing to note is that there is no evidence to show that Atef Bseiso, actually committed any terrorist crime. Bseiso was the Head of Intelligence for the PLO and he was assassinated by Israeli terrorists while working as liaison officer for the PLO with Western intelligence agencies in Paris. Bseiso‘s death came at a time when the PLO was actually sharing intelligence information with Western countries to help oppose terrorist operations hostile to Western interests. According to the Washington Post, Bseiso’s murder stunned Western intelligence agencies, especially as this was the third killing of a chief PLO intelligence liaison officer while co-operating with Western agencies. The paper reported that “judging by the professionalism of the carefully planned slaying, Middle East specialists – Israeli and Palestinian – said the most likely suspect is Israel’s overseas intelligence agency, Mossad.”

Bystanders had described the killers as “European-looking” with short-cropped hair and wearing black jogging suits. They shot and killed Bseiso at point-blank range on his return from a late-night dinner at the Left Bank hotel where he had registered under an alias. Running off into the night, the agents left behind a handgun fitted with a silencer and a bag to catch the spent cartridges, a technique designed to hamper ballistics investigation. Israel and its Mossad agency have little respect for sovereignty, be it Palestinian or any other. One example is Mossad‘s drugging and abduction of an Israeli citizen in Italy. In New Zealand, in 2004, Mossad agents breached “New Zealand sovereignty and international law”, as Prime Minister Helen Clark put it, by fraudulently attempting to acquire a New Zealand passport, using the identity of a man with cerebral palsy.

In any case, Netanyahu’s nauseous denunciation of Jeremy Corbyn’s attendance at the wreath-laying ceremony for the victims of an Israeli air strike is hypocritical considering that, in 2018, Netanyahu himself had spoken admiringly about the notorious terrorist leader Menachem Begin in an address he gave at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center. He spoke of the presence of two documents at the building: “One, President Truman’s historic recognition of the Jewish state; and right next to it, President Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.” The Israeli Prime Minister told the assembly that Menachem Begin “serves as an emblem and as an example for future generations, because the battle is never over. Begin understood that security comes first.” Begin was leader of the Irgun terrorist group that in 1946 set off a bomb in a hotel in Jerusalem that killed 91 people. In 2016, an article in the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, gave recognition to the fact that the bombing of the King David Hotel was an “act of terror”.

In an interview with Jewish News, Jeremy Corbyn told the newspaper: “I’m not an anti-Semite in any way, never have been, never will be. I’ve opposed racism in any form all my life. It’s the way I was brought up, it’s the way I’ve lived my life.” He went on to describe ‘anti-Semitism‘ as “a cancer in our society” that had to be “challenged at every single stage.” As directly and clearly as possible, Corbyn expressed his abhorrence of all forms of discrimination, saying “we want people to understand what it is like to be accused of something because of your ethnicity, because of your faith, because of where you come from. It is very hurtful but also very dangerous and corrosive to our whole society. So today I say quite clearly, anti-Semitism is completely wrong, as is any other form of racism.”

Juliet Moses and Martyn Bradbury

On Twitter recently, Juliet Moses, spokesperson for the NZ Jewish Council, asked, “Is anyone going to try and defend this revolting The Daily Blog piece riddled with antisemitic tropes: 1) Jews as Christ-killers 2) Jews as a virus 3) Jews making up bogus allegations of antisemitism and pulling the strings to advance a neo-liberal agenda.” In reality, Bradbury’s article made not a single reference to Jews but it did target the crimes against humanity that Zionist Israel commit in the name of Jews.

Another way to describe the persecution of Jeremy Corbyn is to liken it to a witch-hunt. Completely devoid of reason and justice, this revival of the Inquisition should wake us all up to the dystopian future that Zionism’s investors would impose upon the world. People who join with Jews in Israel and around the world in their condemnation of the Zionist regime’s racist violations of human rights cannot credibly be branded as racist or anti-Jewish. Misleading Zionist propaganda relies on half-truths and rumours, manipulating language at every turn.

It is Zionism that is racist – let’s ask Juliet Moses if she, or anyone else, can defend the latest barbaric example of Zionism in practie: The Israeli Army destroyed 11 Palestinian family homes and tent dwellings, as well as 64 facilities belonging to them. These included water storage tanks, livestock shelters, mobile bathrooms, solar cell power generators and two agricultural tractors. As the UN Humanitarian Co-ordinator for the Occupied Palestinian territories, Yvonne Helle, explained: demolitions are a key means of creating an environment designed to coerce Palestinians to leave their homes.” Then, of course, there is the constant persecution of Palestinian olive harvesters.


Should the above still leave room for doubt in anyone’s mind as to the foul and ugly purpose that drives the Zionist enterprise, then ask any Zionist if they can defend Israel’s cruelty and criminal abuse of Palestinian children outlined in this Save the Children (SCF) report: The impact of the Israeli military detention system on Palestinian children. This subject has, for years, already been reported on by the UN and human rights groups but this latest evidence has been described as “a searing indictment of the Israeli authorities, and a worthy addition to the voluminous but damning high-quality research into this issue.” Imagine the mainstream news media headlines and outrage if Israeli children were being awakened during the night and seized by foreign occupation soldiers to be taken hooded or blindfolded from their homes. Israel is the only country in the world that ethnically selects children for prosecution in military courts.

It should be plain that success, for the Zionist enterprise, depends upon lies, suppression of freedom of expression and terror. If this corporate-funded movement achieves its ultimate goal, we will find ourselves consigned to a world based upon absolute population control. The groundwork for this has been exercised for over 50 years already in the Occupied Palestinian West Bank and Gaza. Many would say it has been for much longer than that. We live in strange times. To survive we must defend freedom of expression and human rights. The key to that is opposition to Zionism and holding Israel to account – while there is still time.

Leslie Bravery is a Londoner with vivid World War Two memories of the Nazi blitz on his home town. In 1947/1948 His father explained to him what was happening to the Palestinians thus: “Any ideology or political movement that creates refugees in the process of realising its ambitions must be inhuman and should be opposed and condemned as unacceptable.” What followed confirmed this assessment of the Zionist entity a hundredfold. Now a retired flamenco guitarist, with a lifelong interest in the tragedy of what happened to the Palestinian people, he tries to publicise their plight. Because the daily injustices they suffer barely get a mention in the mainstream news media, Leslie edits/compiles a daily newsletter, In Occupied Palestine, for the Palestine Human Rights Campaign. These days, to preserve his sanity, he enjoys taking part in a drama group whenever possible!


    • What? Like this @ Afewknowthetruth?
      RNZ-ionist mouthpiece reports;
      “John Key on Joe Biden and why he’s good for us”
      I would agree with you @ LB. We’re rapidly running out of time.
      The best way, in my opinion, to remove the weaponry the zionists use to infiltrate, gain control and manipulate us is to tax the foreign banks into extinction and re nationlise our basic infrastructures like public transport and electricity supply and introduce a universal basic income to defeat the scourge of any rich country like ours and that is of poverty.
      Watch this excellent TED talk by Rutger Bergman on YouTube.
      “Poverty isn’t a lack of character; it’s a lack of cash | Rutger Bregman”
      Poverty can be ruthlessly used to overpower large sectors of a population. In particular, in otherwise prosperous populations where one’s status is dependent upon financial mana so as to be seen as someone who has financial status among ones peers.
      How rnz can report jonky spouting such sugar coated drivel unchallenged is a good example of those very few of us who are multi millionaires controlling the rest of us who are not. And never will be.

    It has been my impression that rather than relevant politicians timidly allowing this libel to happen, they have recruited some critically placed Zionist Jews to spearhead a coup against him. It has been the Blairite section of the labour party desperate to get rid of his leadership that has been the driving force behind this .

  3. It is one of those issues that is toxically charged on both sides. Corbyn was seen as a significant challenge to the western consesous on Israel and to the military industrial complex of which it is part. He had to many very powerful enemies. But how do we counter accusations of anti semitism while challenging specific israeli government policies? I think we – especially those of us of European descent – have to know and understand Jewish history to gain perspective on why Israeli voters elect such angry and aggressive governments when it comes to Palestine. For centuries Jews have been faced with genocide across Europe and the Middle East and this has imbued a unique outlook on the world around them. An outlook that is hyper sensitive to external threats – perceived and real.
    Any criticism of the Israeli government should be prefaced with this understanding and an acknowledgement of our own historical mistreatment of the Jewish people.

    • Mmm.. Seems like that you are saying that, because Jews were one of the groups (the main group) who suffered the Holocaust, the Israeli state has carte blanche to do whatever it likes?

    • “our own historical mistreatment of the Jewish people.”

      Are you speaking on behalf of whom?
      Just to clarify the comment.

    • So many of the most articulate, informed critics of Zionism are Jews. They are angry when someone tries to use the Holocaust to justify the extreme cruelty imposed on the Palestinian people.
      Do I have to spell it out? Members of Jewish Voice for Peace are banned from Israel.

    • Regarding the right wing smear ….

      “that elected party leader Jeremy Corbyn is himself an antisemite.

      This last claim—a recent invention even in the context of the ‘Labour antisemitism’ campaign—is the most tenuous, flying as it does in the face of Corbyn’s entire documented political career. From April 1977, when he helped organise the defence of Jewish-populated Wood Green from a National Front rally;[1] to the 1980s, when he headed Anti-Fascist Action and was arrested protesting apartheid in South Africa;[2] to June 2015, when he worked with antifascists to prevent a neo-Nazi march on Golders Green;[3] to his first day as Labour Party leader, when he spoke at a demonstration in support of refugees[4]—throughout his political life, Jeremy Corbyn has been a dedicated and principled anti-racist campaigner.

      The Jewish Socialists’ Group recalls that it has ‘worked alongside Jeremy Corbyn in campaigns against all forms of racism and bigotry, including antisemitism, for many years’.[5] From the other end of the political spectrum, distinguished British Jewish historian Geoffrey Alderman observes that, ‘[a]s a matter of fact, Jeremy Corbyn has an impressive demonstrable record of supporting Jewish communal initiatives’.[6] John Bercow, the Jewish former Conservative MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, testifies that, having known Corbyn over two decades, he has ‘never detected a whiff of antisemitism’ about him.[7] Joseph Finlay, one-time Deputy Editor of the Jewish Quarterly and founder of several grassroots Jewish organisations, noted in 2018:

      Many people at the heart of the Corbyn team, such as Jon Lansman, James Schneider and Rhea Wolfson are also Jewish. Ed Miliband, the previous party leader, was Jewish (and suffered antisemitism at the hands of the press and the Conservatives). I have been a member for five years and, as a Jew, have had only positive experiences. . . . Jeremy Corbyn has been MP for Islington North since 1983—a constituency with a significant Jewish population. Given that he has regularly polled over 60% of the vote (73% in 2017) it seems likely that a sizeable number of Jewish constituents voted for him. As a constituency MP he regularly visited synagogues and has appeared at many Jewish religious and cultural events. . . . Whenever there has been a protest against racism, the two people you can always guarantee will be there are Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell. . . . The idea that Britain’s leading anti-racist politician is the key problem the Jewish community faces is an absurdity, a distraction, and a massive error.[8]”

  4. We’re far away. Britain is rational, unlike that foul welt across the Atlantic Ocean. Surely the UK wouldn’t mistake anti-zionism for anti-semitism?

    Yet it seems to have seen the great Corbyn off.

    The 2 parts of the friends of the people, quiet determination and loud argumentation. Bernie Sanders seems equanimous with Biden. Though Ramsay McDonald was thought to have fallen into the breastworks of aristocratic women’s upper situances.

  5. Six months ago the progressive left were looking forward to the possibility of either, or even both, Corbyn and Sanders making it to the summit. Unfortunately it was not the Tories or the GOP behind their failures but the establishment from within their own respective parties. In Jeremy Corbyn’s case it is not enough to undermine his election campaign. Now they want to erase his good reputation in an appalling smear campaign. The Democrats and the British Labour Party are a shambles. Biden is an establishment tool who moves where the donor money tells him and Starmer is a Blairite who has completely lost the respect of the party faithful after the suspension from the party of Corbyn. Progressive change must happen.

    • Happened to some extent in NZ, with the Mana party being destroyed by the centre and left parties. Also the better politicians and with more integrity in NZ have the largest smears in many cases…
