You, Jeremy Corbyn, Have Led Labour Into Authoritarianism, Mob Rule and Institutionalized Racism Against Jews

Dear Jeremy Corbyn,

I became a member of the Labour Party 13 years ago.

I joined as a student on the left of the party, a place in which I have remained since, including serving as an elected Councillor. I was completely assured of the shared values of the Labour Party and my own Jewish faith, community and heritage. Those values meant a complete and utter commitment to anti-racism, social justice and the eradication of economic injustice. The Labour Party no longer shares those values.

It has now become clear that under your leadership, the party has been corrupted and indoctrinated by people who are authoritarian in their approach to politics, encourage democratic structures that lead to bullying mob rule, and above all else, are racist towards Jews. That racism may well be a result of the latter two philosophies.

Despite my very best efforts, I have seen the Labour Party allow antisemitism to take root and fester. I see no evidence that there is zero tolerance towards antisemites in Labour's ranks. pic.twitter.com/YrZYJLPEa9

History is clear to me that when political events like this begin with Jews, they never end with Jews. All minorities should, and I believe will, eventually have significant reason to worry about your rise to the leadership of the Labour Party.

There can be no racial, social or economic justice whilst anti-Semites have completed a hostile takeover of the greatest force for achieving those aims. Anti-Semitism is a corrosive conspiracy theory that blocks the achievement of all........
