Far left Israel hatred on show once again

Far left Israel hatred on show once again


In reaction to the judgment from the Court of Appeal that confirmed that Labour’s National Executive decision to stop new members from voting in its leadership contest, the extreme anti-Israel brigade was quick to take to Twitter.

Dr Chris Jones, a self-described Trotskyist and supporter of Corbyn, tweeted spurious claims that one of the judges who conducted the case was part of the “Israel lobby” because he attended a Jewish boarding school, as you can see from the featured image.

In suggesting that Lord Justice Beatson could be part of the ‘Israel Lobby’, Dr Chris Jones is invoking the idea from the antisemitic forgery, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, that the Jewish people control the world, including important institutions such as the judiciary. By then describing a Jewish Boarding School in Brighton called Whittingehame College as a Zionist boarding school as an example of how he is part of the shadowy Israel lobby, Dr Chris Jones once again returned to the language of old antisemitic tropes.

Sadly this is yet another example of demonisation of Israel rearing its ugly head once again on the far left of the Labour Party.
