It is no wonder that #LabourAntisemitism has run rampant when @UKLabour MPs like @DrRosena spread hugely emotive falsehoods about Israel harming babies, deliberately aiming to stir up people's anger and disdain against the sole Jewish state. #EnoughIsEnough
You cannot get a more emotive topic than babies & little children. Does it never occur to these Labour politicians to check the accuracy of the claims they're fed by Palestinian pressure groups? I never believe a single thing on Israel/Palestine without checking multiple sources.
And that's because - despite what idiots on both 'sides' say - the truth *is* complicated. No-one's hands are clean. I am sick & tired of this Manichean bullshit from Left-wing Jew-haters, that the Israelis are evil, Palestinians good. It's nonsense and it hurts Jews, globally.

Apparently Transgender Trend are trying to crowdfund £50,000, to essentially undermine support for trans kids.

I’m fed up of anti-trans lobbyists misrepresenting themselves and their intentions towards trans kids, so will address their claims in this thread 👇🏻 #EnoughIsEnough
What they call “gender ideology” is basically acknowledging that just as there are trans adults, there are also trans kids, and that people should be respectful, accepting and kind to them (as they should to everyone!)
This is misleading. It implies that trans orgs think the rise in numbers is ‘not important’. It also alludes to debunked notions of ‘social contagion’ and ‘ROGD’.

Trans orgs acknowledge the upsurge, but attribute it to increased visibility and acceptance of trans people.

Really glad to see the Corbynistas taking the announcement of the @EHRC investigation into #LabourAntisemitism in such good grace..... Oh.
Because there's no Jew-hate in the Labour Party.

Oh.
Exoneration is just around the corner.

Oh.

As a member of #Brighton/#Hove's small Jewish community I can tell you that there is something fundamentally wrong with our great city at present. Our community deserves more.
Time and time again these incidents happen here - in our home - and they do not happen without our community shaking their heads in disbelief.

"If you prick us do we not bleed?"
What is it about B&H now that seems to bring out the very worst in some?

What is it that makes some think they can use language they wouldn't dream of using with any other minority community?

Why are we - a comm. that has lived here for 250 years - now feeling so concerned?

Yesterday we saw a horrendous attack on a Synagogue in San Diego in which Lori Kaye (BDE) was senselessly murdered by a gunman and 3 others wounded. This is not the first nor sadly will it be the last attack on one of our places of worship.
Shortly before y'days attack in San Diego @NudderingNudnik wrote a thread about a credible risk to his own shul here in the UK that was considered of such seriousness that the police felt the need for a high profile presence during the Shabbat service.

You might be thinking these incidents happen in isolation or that the threat to us is minimal or exaggerated.

Sadly that might have been true a few years ago, it is not now!

1/ I often use this case as an example of how serious or endemic the problem of antisemitism is in Labour and the wider left. This statement went round pro-Corbyn FB groups after the #EnoughisEnough Jewish anti-racism demo. It is a statement of antisemitism.
2/ It was widely condemned (after it made the press) including by @johnmcdonnellMP and @owenjones84. It was endorsed well over 2000 times before it was finally pulled by the author, who is now standing as a Labour candidate in the local elections.
3/ It's worth dwelling on this: the statement is almost a perfect distillation of contemporary left antisemitism; it refers to the Jewish protesters (of which I was one) as a "very powerful special interest group, mobilising it's immense strength against you." The few vs the many

Oh just @UKLabour MP Grahame Morris on *Easter Monday* the day when historically mobs slaughtered Jews, RTing a Jew-hating conspiracy theorist w/ a video from GUATEMALA with a fucking BLOOD LIBEL about the Jewish state killing kids for FUN & exhorting G-d to forgive them for it.
This is basic old school, Christian 'Jews kill non-Jewish kids for fun' Jew-hate. Plain, old-fashioned, despicable Blood Libelling Jew-hate masquerading as concern for the Palestinians. It's not. And if you can't see it you're CHOOSING NOT TO & COMPLICIT #EnoughIsEnough #BeLouder
*WHAT* are you going to do @tom_watson @EmilyThornberry @Keir_Starmer @jessphillips @stellacreasy @DavidLammy @YvetteCooperMP, you so-called moderates? YOUR fellow Labour MP is spreading BLOOD LIBEL on Easter Monday. This is dangerous & you sit alongside him. #LabourAntisemitism

David Byrd (@stopbyrd) Update: After a day and a half of talking to folks in Nashville and in the admitted sexual child predators home district a couple of things are apparent. Some GOP leaders are convinced that this is a partisan attack. And bad blood between Republicans
In Wayne and Hardin counties are preventing some from acting. Yes, kinda crazy. As a GOP grassroots activist, former GOP county party chairman & lawyer who has represented numerous GOP candidates, it will be hard to paint this as partisan. This BS cannot stand. I am excited to
Report that a number of my fellow right wing deplorables will be joining the fight with the already heavily engaged left leaning activists & women's groups. I regularly represent victims in my law practice. I have never asked what, if any, political party those victims

I had to take a break from the mad house of Twitter. I will admit I was scared, I'm scared of #LabourAntisemitism, I'm scared enough people dont care and I'm scared enough people don't think its real.
I'm scared people think @UKLabour can handle it.
*thread*
I'm scared because I've been a witness to the abolition of decency in the party. This comes from the top, and many people find it abhorrent from all areas of the party.
The issue is they don't find it abhorrent enough.
They think they can *manage* it, or even, amongst the very arrogant, educate it out of the party.
This is despite the EVIDENCE that Corbyn and Milne are utterly committed to this path.
This is the biggest political attack of the Jewish community I've ever witnessed.

For anybody to use the issue of condemning antisemitism, while at the same time promoting, supporting and facilitating antisemitism, would rightly be seen as appalling hypocrisy, basely exploiting a genuine concern that you in fact helped to create.
To support my assertion lets have a look at some of the articles that John McDonnell has endorsed as President of the LRC over the last year.
First up supporting Marc Wadsworth (the man who abused Ruth Smeeth at the Charkrabarthi inquiry launch).
labourrep.com/blog/2018/4/21…
Wadsworth was expelled (disrepute).
Responses by JVL, Grassroots Black Left (Wadsworth's group) & Chris Williamson.
Chris Williamson: "I am astonished by the National Constitutional Committee's (NCC) perverse determination of Marc Wadsworth's case."

1/ My Personal Thank You to Donald J. Trump...

Human beings are tribal.

We define ourselves relative to our affiliations, our social networks, our tribes.

Our nationality. Our religion. Our ethnicity. Our school. Our political affiliation. Our profession. Our sports teams...
2/ The neighborhood we were born in. The city we were born in. All are tribes of one sort or another.

With our tribal behavior comes certain prejudices, certain judgements that we render against those of a different tribe.

I've had them my whole life. ..
3/ We all have them, to one degree or another, whether or not we admit it to ourselves.

It's in recognition of that fact that I have to personally thank Donald J. Trump for freeing me of those prejudices, those judgements...

@SpeakerPelosi He's attempting to be a dictator!! I truly believe that he premeditated his actions as President for decades. He planned all the ways he'd be able to take advantage of his position. Why you guys aren't ending this is beyond all logic!?! You're allowing him to be above law!!!...
@SpeakerPelosi ...Had this been anyone else with all these investigations, and blatant wrongdoings happening right in front of our eyes, they'd a been LONG GONE!!! Seriously, replace any of the headlines or investigations that have Trump's name, with the name Obama, and shit would've hit the...
@SpeakerPelosi ...fan a long time ago!!! Never have we had these forms of scandal and obvious wrongdoings in the history of the Presidency. Yet somehow, America is allowed to continue on as a circus!?! At this point, Trump is not the only one that is doing injustice towards the American...

Thread: One year ago, over two thousand people gathered outside Parliament for an unprecedented demonstration. (1/12)
#EnoughIsEnough
For a minority community to protest the leadership of the official party of opposition against its handling of racism towards them is something we have still not managed to comprehend. (2/12)
#EnoughIsEnough
The Labour Party is meant to be a party imbued in social justice and which prides itself on its anti-racist credentials. Its party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, calls himself “a militant opponent of antisemitism”. (3/12)

In my latest thread on #LabourAntisemitism I wanted to look at the personal impact of it.

We concentrate on the statistics, how the Jewish community overall feels, the processes and the challenges.

This is worthy, but let's remember the impact on so many Jewish individuals. /1
I am going to tell the story about my personal heartbreak over #LabourAntisemitism through the story of my life. The story of a proud Brit and a proud Jew, who has friends in all communities and does his best to contribute to this country. /2
We start at the beginning. I was born on May 6th 1990 in Jersey Farm, St Albans. I am the son of a Solicitor and Pharmacist who were active in St Albans Masorti Synagogue.

We were typical middle class family. /3
