Dissent in Labour Rises Following BBC Revelations
By Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld August 7, 2019

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 1,248, August 7, 2019
 
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Dissent inside the British Labour Party has increased following the recent broadcast of a BBC Panorama documentary on antisemitism within the party’s ranks. One-third of Labour members of the House of Lords published an advertisement attacking Corbyn’s position on antisemitism. A great majority of Labour staff members accepted a motion against the party leadership’s attitude toward employees. As many of Corbyn’s opponents prefer to fight the ineffectiveness of Labour leadership on the antisemitism problem rather than leave the party, this internal battle is unlikely to go away any time soon.
 
The BBC Panorama documentary on antisemitism in the British Labour Party, broadcast on July 10, has unleashed a torrent of reactions. A number of these are important new developments. On one side in Labour remains party leader Jeremy Corbyn, those who do not want to fight antisemitism effectively (the “smokescreeners”), and the antisemitism whitewashers. On the other side are those who want to stamp out the party’s institutional antisemitism.
 
Dissent inside the party significantly increased in the wake of the documentary. One spectacular sign of this was a full-page ad paid for by 67 Labour peers – several of them former ministers – in the left-wing daily, the Guardian. The signatories represent about one-third of all Labour Lords. They accused Corbyn of not having defended Labour’s anti-racist values. The key line of the ad read: “The Labour Party welcomes everyone* irrespective or race, creed, gender identity, or sexual orientation (*except, it seems, Jews).” It added: “This is your legacy, Mr. Corbyn.”
 
It is telling that these Labour peers did not write an open letter. They were apparently trying to maximize the audience for their dissent on the party’s antisemitism. Quotes from the ad were picked up by a variety of other British media outlets.
 
An additional front of dissent has opened up between Labour staff and party leadership.  Staff members affiliated with the major GMB trade union voted 124 in favor, with only four against, for a motion condemning the Labour press office’s response to the BBC documentary. The motion said it was “unacceptable for an employee’s workload or the culture of an organization to cause staff to have breakdowns or to contemplate suicide.” (On the BBC program, several whistleblowers claimed extreme stress caused by party leadership.)
 
Baroness Hayter, Labour’s Deputy Leader in the House of Lords, is one of the signatories on the peers’ ad. Hayter said Corbyn’s inner circle was behaving as in the last days of Hitler in his bunker, where “you stop receiving any information into the inner group which suggests that things are not going the way you want.” A Labour spokesman described the comments as “deeply offensive.”
 
Corbyn fired Baroness Hayter from the party’s front bench, but only the party’s peers can sack her as Deputy Labour leader in the House of Lords. There, Hayter remains sitting on Labour’s front bench, flouting Corbyn’s decision.
 
Lord Mandelson, a former Labour minister who has also been a European Commissioner, said he feels “dirty” staying in a Labour Party in which “no effective action” is being taken against people holding antisemitic views.
 
As a reaction to the peers’ advertisement, a local Labour party expelled one of its signatories, Lady Armstrong. She was Chief Whip under PM Tony Blair. This was a symbolic vote, as only the Labour leadership can expel party members. Shadow justice minister MP Gloria Depiero, who left Labour’s front bench, announced that she would not be standing at the next general election as the party has a “lack of tolerance.”
 
MP Dame Margaret Hodge wrote an article in the Guardian in which she wrote that one year had passed since a face-to-face encounter with Corbyn in the parliament’s lobby in which she called the Labour leader “a racist” and an “antisemite.” Hodge wrote that her politics have been defined by her Jewish identity in a way that she never imagined. She added that she never thought she would ever be a victim of Jew-hatred from the hard left. Hodge wrote that in the year that has passed, the situation within the party has deteriorated dramatically and the antisemitism crisis in Labour has spiraled out of control.
 
Former Labour PM Tony Blair was asked in a BBC interview whether he would vote for the party in elections amid the rows on Brexit and antisemitism.  Referring to the antisemitism issue, Blair indicated that it would be difficult.
 
Matthew Turner, head of the Labour Campaign for Human Rights, said there is currently a real and ongoing issue of antisemitism within the party.  He said, “We must now take the fight to antisemitism within our own ranks. We cannot ignore it or fail to deal with it properly.”
 
The National Executive Committee of Labour (NEC) is backing a proposal by Corbyn to fast-track expulsions of members in the most serious antisemitism cases. It was decided that a new internal panel should be set up to take up rapid action against the worst offenders. The shadow cabinet is also backing this proposal. Yet Labour Deputy Leader Tom Watson wants automatic expulsion of party members only where there is “irrefutable evidence of racism and discrimination.” In the meantime, a page of information on antisemitism has been added to the party’s website.
 
The parliamentary head of the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM), MP Ruth Smeeth, said, “There is still no independence. In fact, arguably political power over antisemitism cases is going to be consolidated by political supporters of Jeremy Corbyn.” Mike Katz, the JLM Chair, said, “Nothing short of a fully independent process, first asked for by the Jewish community way back in April 2018, is even going to begin to suggest that the party leadership really cares about tackling institutional anti-Jewish racism.”
 
Dave Rich of the Jewish defense organization Community Security Trust (CST) wrote: “Labour still talks about antisemitism as a problem of ‘a small number’ of members with the wrong ideas, who can be persuaded to change their views with a leaflet and a video or two. In fact it is a problem of political culture and institutional racism, and a leadership that wants us to believe they can turn the problem around without ever addressing their own role in creating it.”
 
The antisemitism debate is apparently hampering pro-Palestinian activism and extreme attacks on Israel in Labour. This was made clear in an earlier article by former minister Peter Hain. Another former minister, Clare Short, a fanatical anti-Israel inciter, wrote a letter to the Financial Times claiming that the root of the antisemitism problem is the “growing awareness, injustice and suffering inflicted by Israel on the Palestinians.” As usual among the extremist lookers away of major Palestinian criminality, there wasn’t a word in her letter about the genocidal intentions of the largest Palestinian party, Hamas, and the glorification of the murder of Israeli civilians by the Palestinian Authority.
 
Labour has made public the information that 625 antisemitic complaints were received during the first six months of 2019, and that a total of eight party members have been expelled.
 
Over the past three years, it has become clear that under Corbyn’s leadership, Labour has become institutionally antisemitic. A report from CST found that the number of antisemitic incidents in Britain rose in the first half of 2019, and it stated that antisemitism in the Labour Party was a contributing factor.
 
Jewish activist David Collier compiled a report that concludes: “The election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Party leader in September 2015 established the toxic environment which enabled the growth of rampant anti-Zionist hostility and inevitably antisemitism.” Collier also discovered a “clear pattern” supporting the “general assumption” by commentators that “the Labour party was invaded by extremists when Jeremy Corbyn became leader.”
 
Nevertheless, a substantial percentage of the Labour membership remains at least partly in denial about Corbyn’s role in causing all this. A poll by The Times found that 70% of Labour members admitted that antisemitism was a genuine problem in the party, but only 48% believe Corbyn has fared either fairly badly or very badly on the issue. Only 27% agreed that Corbyn should step down. More than 80% thought he had the right leadership priorities for the country.
 
The party is thus full of supporters of Corbyn – a man who has called genocidal antisemitic terrorists “friends” and “brothers” and is himself an antisemite. Yet many of those opposed to the party leadership’s lack of desire to confront antisemitism prefer to fight within the party rather than leave it. The battle over antisemitism in the party is thus unlikely to go away in the near future.

Jewish Labour MP hits out at Jeremy Corbyn's antisemitism leaflet for saying Holocaust started in '1941'
Ruth Smeeth, JLM's parliamentary chair, says changes 'are not going to mean a thing if we can't even get the dates of the Holocaust right'
Ruth Smeeth MP
Jewish Labour MP Ruth Smeeth has launched a furious attack on Jeremy Corbyn's bid to launch a fightback over the party's antisemitism crisis - accusing the leadership of bungling the dates of the Nazi Holocaust in campaign literature.

The Jewish Labour Movement's Parliamentary chair pointed to information in Labour's new guide to the roots of anti-Jewish racism - designed to tackle the problem within the party - which said the Holocaust took place "between 1941 and 1945."

Leaving the weekly Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) meeting on Monday evening, which was addressed by Mr Corbyn himself, Ms Smeeth fumed: "Changes to complaints and procedures are not going to mean a thing if we can't even get the dates of the Holocaust right in the literature.

"Who knew that 1941-1945 was when the Holocaust begun?"

Labour sources later tried to claim that the party's literature had used the "commonly understood academic timetable" of when the Shoah took place.

They accepted that others saw the rise to power of Hitler in 1933 as the real beginning of the Holocaust.

The Kristallnacht pogrom against Jews, which left at least 91 dead, took place in November 1938.

Ms Smeeth said she had been left incensed by Mr Corbyn's failure to answer the questions she had put to him at the meeting.

She raised the case of former Labour staffer Sam Matthews who had received a death threat from a pro-Corbyn activist after he appeared as a whistleblower on the BBC Panorama episode about Labour's racism crisis.

"Sam got a death threat and had to spend three hours with the Met Police on a Saturday night," she said.

"It went in one ear and out another," she said of Mr Corbyn's response. "I don't understand where humanity is meant to exist in our party if this is where we are.

"I read out a list of everything that had happened, not in the past three years, but in the past month.

"No comment, no reference, no awareness."

Earlier Labour had attempted to bolster muted response to an announcement, made on Monday ahead of a Shadow Cabinet meeting on the crisis, to move to allow the General Secretary, in company with the party's governing body, the National Executive Committee (NEC), to expel antisemites.

A later statement by the Shadow Cabinet announced further use of independent legal advice on decisions. It is understood deputy leader Tom Watson had left the meeting when this was issued.

But sources said he was encouraged by the announcement that independent advisers were being considered.

But it was unclear how the proposal, which is to be voted on at Tuesday's NEC meeting, would work.

Leaving the weekly PLP meeting, one MP said: "Same sh*t, different day."

Another said Mr Corbyn sounded like a "broken record".

But one Labour source said they believed their had been "some movement" with the Shadow Cabinet announcement.

Labour General Secretary Jennie Formby, who has recently been undergoing chemotherapy, addressed the PLP meeting at the start and was warmly applauded.

She had to be helped as she left by Mr Corbyn's Chief of Staff Karie Murphy.

Formal ‘anti-Semitism’ complaint made against Corbyn’s Labour critic

Dame Margaret Hodge MP is one of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s most vocal critics. She is also now the subject of a formal complaint in which the Right Honourable Member for Barking is accused of anti-Semitism and treating a Jewish supporter of Corbyn as a “second class” Jew.

The formal complaint against Hodge was made by Shraga Stern, a member of the Orthodox Jewish community, one of many Jews to back Corbyn. Hodge, it seems, was irritated by a meeting between Stern and Corbyn at Portcullis House in Westminster earlier this month and commented on a photo of them together while denouncing Stern on Twitter for his beliefs.

“Having lunch & wondering why Corbyn wants to be seen talking to an anti-LGBT activist who doesn’t represent the mainstream Jewish community yet chooses to sideline groups like @JewishLabour…” wrote Hodge in response to news about the meeting attended by Stern, the Labour leader and his wife Laura Alvarez, and the shadow international development secretary, Dan Carden.

Stern has taken exception to Hodge’s description of him as a non-“mainstream” Jew, and has made a formal complaint both directly to her and to the Labour Party.

In a letter sent on Sunday to Hodge, Stern asked if it’s “ok to be hurt and assaulted for simply living in the UK as a Charedi Jew.” In his condemnation of Hodge he went on to ask, “Is it acceptable for a party member to suffer from stress due to anti-Semitic assaults for being a Charedi Jew? Is it ok for a Member of Parliament to assault a fellow Jew for the reason that his external appearances are different? Last but not least, why is it wrong for Jeremy Corbyn to speak to a second-class Jew?” That is a description of Jews which Stern claims was made by Hodge herself about members of her community of whom she disapproves.

In his letter to the Labour Party, Stern says that Hodge had defamed him as being an anti-LGBT activist. He insisted that was not true. “My campaign stood against all sex teachings in the classroom and that they should be taught by parents at home as is the Charedi custom,” he explained. In what seems to be a further rebuke to Hodge for misrepresenting him, Stern claims that his position on the matter was clear all along. What’s more, he accused Hodge of continuously “attacking” his “religious Jewish tradition.” Such attacks would appear to match the universally accepted definition of anti-Semitism.

To support his case, Stern provided the Labour Party with a list of attacks directed by Hodge against the Orthodox Jewish community and said that her behaviour was “pure religious anti-Semitism against me, my religion and my Rabbis.”

It is not clear how the Labour Party will handle the complaint against Hodge who has been one of the main spearheads of the campaign against Corbyn. She was once disciplined by Labour for calling the Party leader a “f***ing anti-Semite and a racist” during a heated exchange. So far, the Labour Party is reported to have said only that it does not comment on individual cases but insists that it takes all complaints of anti-Semitism extremely seriously.

Hodge has continued her campaign against Corbyn and used every opportunity to undermine the Labour leader. Writing in the Guardian following the BBC Panorama programme about alleged anti-Semitism in Labour, she said, “I won’t walk away from the fight to root out anti-Semitism in the party. But the leadership remains in denial.”

Orthodox Jews make up around one quarter of Britain’s Jewish community, numbering 67,000 in total. With a higher than average birth rate, it is predicted to become one half of all Jews in the country. Clearly, then, it is not an insignificant group, as Hodge’s tweet implied. The MPs comments will raise further questions about her motives in continuing her ongoing attack on Corbyn over the anti-Semitism row within the Labour Party. Many will also ask if she is actually part of the problem, and guilty of fuelling hatred against Jews of whom she disapproves.

The BBC Revelations: Holocaust Promoters Inside the Labour Party

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 1,236, July 24, 2019

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: One of the most sensational revelations of the recently screened BBC Panorama documentary on antisemitism within the British Labour Party is the presence there of actual Holocaust promoters. The documentary did not address every element of Labour antisemitism, but did provide much new information on “smokescreening” by the leadership: the practice of falsely claiming that it took determined action against antisemitism when in fact it took only partial, lukewarm action.

The BBC Panorama documentary on antisemitism within the British Labour party broadcast on July 10 had a number of major merits. It exposed many unknown details about Jew-hatred within the party and provided much new information about one of the important aspects of Labour antisemitism, “smokescreening.” It also revealed that some members of the Labour party are actual Holocaust promoters. One former staffer interviewed said she was regularly told that “Hitler was right” and “Hitler did not go far enough.”

“Smokescreening” is claiming that one is taking determined action to solve a problem when one is in fact only making a partial effort. This is the practice of a number of individuals who hold senior positions within the Labour party. They do not openly say, “We protect antisemites, whom we consider valuable to the party,” but this in fact exactly what they do.

Jeremy Corbyn is a master smokescreener. He has said on many occasions that his party will stamp out antisemitism. When criticizing the Panorama documentary he did so again, saying: “Antisemitism is a poison, it is vile, it is wrong… It is a poison in our society and any other society … It is not acceptable in any form.”

Similarly, Labour Secretary General Jennie Formby entitled an article she published in February of this year: “Eliminate the evil of antisemitism from our movement – that is my mission.“

One former Labour staffer said in the documentary that Formby’s claim of prioritizing the party’s antisemitism problem was “a joke.“ Another former staffer who dealt with antisemitism complaints said interference from Labour’s head office in the processing of those complaints was so extreme that he considered suicide. He had planned to do it by jumping from Formby’s office balcony.

Initially, the BBC documentary was available for worldwide viewership. However, a few days after airing, the BBC limited viewership to the UK. The documentary is, however, available online.

The Panorama documentary was by no means a complete exposé of all aspects of antisemitism inside the Labour party, so they warrant mention here. The central issue is Corbyn, a terrorist sympathizer and self-defined “antiracist.” He has called representatives of Hezbollah and Hamas “brothers” and “friends.” He has made donations to a Holocaust denier and welcomed another. He is a long-term anti-Israel inciter and antisemite.

The documentary made clear that Corbyn’s arrival as party leader in September 2015 greatly encouraged the antisemites in Labour to go public. A staffer said that before his arrival, complaints about antisemitism were very limited. In a reaction to the program, another former staffer (who did not appear on it) said that in an average week there were dozens if not hundreds of complaints.

In analyzing the various elements of the revelation of Labour’s antisemitism problem, attention should be paid to the indirect role of Corbyn’s predecessor, Ed Miliband. He made Corbyn’s ascension as leader possible. He instituted a policy that supporters paying only £3 (about $4) could vote in the Labour leadership contest. In the documentary, Corbyn is shown saying that 160,000 more people received voting rights this way.  Many came from the extreme left.

Corbyn and his inner circle could easily have stamped out antisemitic outbursts among Labourites in the more than three years since the first significant manifestations of it, which occurred among Labour students at Oxford University. There is much evidence that the Labour leadership simply did not want to do so. In fact, it afforded protection to some of the worst offenders. All in all, since Corbyn became leader, only 15 members have been expelled due to antisemitism. A few others, fearing they would be expelled, appear to have left of their own volition. The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee’s 2016 report said the Labour leadership’s lack of action “risks lending force to allegations that elements of the Labour movement are institutionally antisemitic.”

This has been detailed by Alan Johnson, a scholar and Labour member, who published a report entitled Institutionally Antisemitic: Contemporary Left Antisemitism and the Crisis in the British Labour Party.

The possibility of a full-fledged investigation into antisemitism after the preliminary one by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) made no impression on Corbyn. This public body has now announced a full enquiry. Only one party has ever been subjected to such an investigation: the British National Party, a small, extreme rightwing organization. More than 30 whistleblowers, including current members of Labour staff, have said they will submit evidence to the EHRC.

A crucial but underreported issue is the number of Labour members who make antisemitic remarks. Lord Falconer, a former high-ranking Labour minister, has said there are thousands of antisemites among Labour members. The aforementioned statement from the staffer about the average number of complaints per week backs this up.

Corbyn reacted to the Panoroma documentary by saying, “It’s less than 0.1% of our membership that have ever been involved in any accusation, never mind any resolution of the issue.” But if Falconer is correct, there should be at least 2,000 – and probably many more – antisemites in the party. This represents more than 0.4% of the Labour membership, which stood at around 512,000 early in 2019. These calculations greatly understate the reality, however. One hears mainly about antisemitic complaints concerning Labour party office holders and elected officials. To be more accurate, one might add activists.

Ordinary Labour members who make antisemitic remarks – on Facebook, for instance – are not necessarily publicly identified as Labourites. It is thus prudent to focus on officeholders and elected officials who have made such remarks.

As a reaction to the Panorama documentary, the four most senior Labour leaders in the House of Lords wrote to Corbyn offering to establish a panel to review the allegations of the former staffers. They also offered advice on how to start a properly independent complaints process. As the habit of “smokescreening” is ingrained in the current Labour leadership, this suggestion could be a partial means of getting rid of many antisemites in the party.

One positive element has emerged from the Labour antisemitism battle. A number of MPs, including non-Jewish ones, such as Deputy Leader Tom Watson, are actively fighting antisemitism in the party. So too is the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM), which has been part of the Labour party for almost 100 years.

Labour has been accused by the Board of Deputies of British Jews of “letting off” people accused of antisemitism without sanction, after a leaked draft of the party’s disciplinary process showed that some members can avoid punishment in serious cases where they have apologised and agreed to undergo education.

The Board of Deputies, a leading Jewish organisation, said Labour’s disciplinary processes were still not good enough and appeared too permissive towards antisemites, following the emergence of a draft of the party’s “antisemitism decision-making matrix” from March.

But Labour defended itself, saying all cases were reviewed on the basis of evidence and arguing that it was right to adjust sanctions depending on the member’s acceptance of culpability. It is understood that the party does not treat an apology as an automatically mitigating factor or as a reason for not imposing a sanction.

The matrix, seen by the Guardian, says: “If there is a case to answer that the member has breached the rules, decide whether a) the alleged conduct is too serious to be disciplined with a written warning (ie suspension or expulsion appears appropriate, or b) there is an important dispute of fact. If so, refer to the NCC (unless education appropriate/agreed, and with acknowledgement/apology, is sufficient mitigation).”

It adds: “If the conduct would have been serious enough for referral to the NCC [national constitutional committee] or an NEC [national executive committee] warning but member has acknowledged/apologised and agreed to education, record agreement to education.”

Labour said all cases were reviewed based on the available evidence. A party spokeswoman said: “For example, an individual’s refusal to recognise their wrongdoing is likely to result in a more severe sanction.

“The Labour party is taking decisive action against antisemitism, swiftly suspending and imposing robust sanctions on individuals. Since Jennie Formby became general secretary, the number of staff dedicated to dealing with complaints and investigations has been doubled and the rate at which cases are dealt with has increased more than fourfold.”

However, Marie van der Zyl, the president of the Board of Deputies, said: “Despite Labour’s protestations after the Panorama programme, it is clear that Labour’s disciplinary processes still seem to be more geared towards protecting antisemites than protecting Jews. Over and over again, we see known and repeat offenders being let off despite a massive burden of evidence.

“The option of apology or training for those with serious enough cases to be referred to the national constitutional committee to get off is nothing better than a ‘get out of jail free card’ for racists. Fundamentally, this is about the culture and leadership of the party under Jeremy Corbyn being too permissive to antisemites. The process is wrong, the practice is wrong and the culture is wrong.”

Separately, the Board of Deputies wrote to all MPs and members of the national executive committee ahead of a special shadow cabinet meeting on Monday, calling for a more independent disciplinary procedure and for the cases of two high-profile members under investigation, Chris Williamson and Peter Willsman, to be dealt with within a fortnight.

The Jewish Leadership Council has also written to shadow cabinet ministers calling for an independent disciplinary system to be brought in and saying they must not underestimate the importance of Monday’s meeting as “inaction will signal your support for what has happened and what will follow”.

The interventions come after a difficult couple of weeks for Labour, since the broadcast of a BBC Panorama documentary in which eight former staff members alleged that the party was not dealing properly with complaints of antisemitism and was allowing Corbyn’s office to get involved in disputes.

Labour strongly denied any interference by the leader’s office, complained to the BBC, and said the claims were made by “disaffected former officials including those who have always opposed Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, worked to actively undermine it, and have both personal and political axes to grind”.

However, there has been an outcry from some in the party, including Tom Watson, the deputy leader, whose relations with the leadership are at a low point.

More than 60 Labour peers took out an advertisement accusing Corbyn of having “failed the test of leadership” over his handling of antisemitism complaints within the party, and Labour’s leaders in the House of Lords issued a veiled challenge to Corbyn’s authority on Monday by warning him that antisemitism was a “cancer that will continue to grow”.

Meanwhile, more than 200 Labour supporters – half of them current or former Labour staffers – demanded an explanation from party bosses over the treatment of the Panorama whistleblowers.

Labour is to hold an extraordinary shadow cabinet meeting on Monday to address concerns about antisemitism, and Corbyn will address MPs on the issue the same day.

Labour party leader is forcing Jews to consider leaving England
By Avi Abelow -  September 4, 2018 10461 0
This is not a joke. The big conversation in Jewish homes in Britain today is whether they will stay or leave if Corbyn becomes Prime Minister.  As of now, he has not been elected Prime Minister.  But everyone knows that his chances of winning the next elections are great. That might be the catalyst for a mass exodus of Jews from Britain.

Is it Time for British Jews to Start Leaving Europe?
DAILY DOSE | With the rise of the far-right, increasing Muslim immigration in and leaders like Jeremy Corbyn in Europe, some Jews are beginning to feel the heat. Is it time for them to move to Israel or elsewhere? UK Israel political communications specialist David Mencer analyzes.

Antisemitism on the rise in Britain
The leadership of Jeremy Corbyn has made antisemitism into a mainstream position.  This is a real shocker.  Understandably, the Jews of Britain are quite concerned, if not downright scared. The first six months of 2018 saw the second largest number of anti-semitic attacks in the UK. The first six months of 2017 saw the largest number of attacks.

The Labour Party is Now “Institutionally Racist”
Liberal, secular, Muslim radio host Maajid Nawaz delivered a damning explanation about the Labour Party.  He believes that the Labour party is institutionally racist. This is a MUST SEE video to understand how Jews of Britain feel today.

 Shout out directly antsemitic statements and you get elected to the ruling body. Have an argument with puppet leader Corbyn and you get threatened with disciplinary action.
It's beyond parody now.
