Jeremy Corbyn, British Labour leader a lifelong anti-racist is a defender of Palestinian rights. Zionist true believers, losing credibility in every country have decided Corbyn as a major leader of a political party must go. Make an make an example of him. Turn attention away from Israel’s outrageous gunning down of nonviolent Palestinians demanding rights guaranteed by international law. Blatant hasbara, crude propaganda.
On March 30 Palestinians launched a protest movement dubbed “The Great March of Return” to demand their right to return to the homes their families were forced out of during the Nakba and an end to Israel’s stifling siege on the Gaza Strip.
The world watched as Israeli snipers shot with impunity defenseless Palestinians. How many Israelis were killed? None.
Some 155 Palestinians have been shot and killed by Israeli Defense Force as they took part in the “Great March of Return” protests in the besieged Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has revealed.
Twenty-three of those killed were minors under the age of 18 and three were women. In addition to those killed, 17,259 Palestinians were injured in the protests; 3,279 of whom were children and 1,553 women.
Meanwhile British Zionists with the help always of Israel began to stoke the utterly outrageous idea that a Corbyn -led government posed a grave threat to British Jewry a totally ridiculous claim..Could there be some anti-Semitism within Labour ranks? Possibly but Corbyn’s whole life has been consistently anti-racist
Now Mark Serwotka the leaders of a huge British trade union claimed Israel has tried to “create a story that does not exist”, His comments were made during a fringe event at the Trades Union Congress conference in Manchester and first reported by The Independent.
Mr Serwotka told the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign event that 2018 had seen US President Donald Trump move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, “dozens of Palestinians – including many, many children… gunned down… by the Israeli military”, and Americans “cutting off aid, which makes it even more important to call for an end to the blockade of Gaza”.
He added: “Isn’t it a funny old world when, instead of being on the front foot, denouncing these atrocities, demanding an independent and sovereign state for the Palestinian people, we have had a summer of asking ourselves whether leading Labour movement people are in any way antisemitic?
“I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I’ll tell you what – one of the best forms of actually trying to hide from the atrocities that you are committing is to go on the offensive and actually create a story that does not exist for people on this platform, the trade union movement or, I have to say, for the leader of the Labour Party.”
Serwotka stated the obvious that we need to oppose antisemitism in society and within the labour movement.”But we should not allow the issue of antisemitism to be used by people who are attempting to silence Palestinian voices as they legitimately struggle for their rights and a sovereign state.”
