UK Jewish leaders spurn Labor leader’s “apology”
“Enough is enough,” Jewish groups have said in a letter accusing opposition Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn of failing to tackle anti-Semitism. To quell the commotion long building up over the virulent anti-Semitism inside his party, Corbyn tried saying he was “sincerely sorry” for the pain caused by “pockets of anti-Semitism” in the Labor Party. He also offered to meet representatives of the Jewish community to “rebuild” confidence in his party. However, the organizations have turned him down and are planning a protest outside Parliament. The letter – drawn up by the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council – said there has been a “repeated institutional failure” to properly address anti-Semitism. It rails against Corbyn’s apparently supportive message to the creator of a vicious anti-Semitic cartoon and his attendance of pro-Hizballah rallies. It accuses him of being unable to “seriously contemplate anti-Semitism, because he is so ideologically fixed within a far-left worldview that is instinctively hostile to mainstream Jewish communities.” Luciana Berger, a prominent Jewish Labor member, posted a message on Monday about the anti-Semitic cartoon: I asked the Leader’s Office for an explanation about this Facebook post first thing this morning. I’m still waiting for a response.

What is so heavy about antisemitism?? The world is full of anti christ, anti chinese anti black anti white anti muslim anti russian anti US anti latino anti west anti east anti them anti us…
Simple, Anti-Semitism calls for the death of all Jews, that is a whole lot more than just being anti-a-particular-group. But then again, I don’t believe you have ever had to run for your life because of the colour of your skin or your religion, so what can be expected of you understanding anything other than what the media tells you.
neither the semitism theory the anti semitism league nor any anti semitic groups with any popular support call upon people to commit violent acts against ethno religious jews. you can define any word to mean anything. colored can signify color such as red white and blue, or brown. it’;s up to you. can’t say you’ll be accepted with your usage, but you can say anything you like to mean anything you like. other people don’t have to understand it. you must make yourself understood.
WE deal with our problems…They can deal with threir…

Only dogs and Englishmen get mad all others get angry. Accept it as fact that the British left is anti- semetic and take steps to protect Jews.
“Christians have been persecuted along with the Jews…”. Apparently it is you that appears to more of a Mr.Ignorant, do not forget the rampaging hordes that swept across Europe and the Middle East, in how many Crusades? Keeping in mind that the first few never even left Europe, as the Christians were more than happy massacring and pillaging the Jews instead. Despite all the horrendous crimes committed against Christians recently, do not make the mistake and think it is on the same level as the 1000’s of years of Jewish prosecution. Either way, I would never expect you to understand, the pandering to extremists that is now evident in all the Christian countries is the reason this is now getting out of control.
the same people who went on the first crusade brought the first jews to England to collect taxes. The jews came from Rouen, 75 miles from Falaise, where William was born illegitimately as William the Bastard.
The leader of the Round-heads was Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658), whose New Model Army was not only outfitted and provisioned by the chief contractor and professional agitator, Fernan-dez Carvajal, but also bankrolled by the money-lenders in Amsterdam.
Winston Churchill is rolling over in his grave over the Muslims in England.
On December 26th, 1918, Winston Churchill wrote to the recently re-elected British PM David Lloyd-George
Here is the letter about the new Government which you have asked me to write you. … there is a point about Jews which occurs to me—you must not have too many of them. … Three Jews among only 7 Liberal cabinet ministers might I fear give rise to comment.
Guess what, not only France is full of mudslime!
A Racist Pig….There are actually Jews who support this creep…
