The hidden toll of Labour's fabricated anti-Semitism crisis

15 7 3

A message left on the answerphone of a 71-year-old Jewish woman said: “You f***ing Nazi bitch… You should burn in the gas oven. You dirty f***ing bitch…. Stinking, stinking swine… You deserve … to burn in acid.”

The victim of this hate crime was a Jewish member of the Labour Party.

But in stark contrast to the distorted media image that was foisted upon us in recent years, this Jewish victim of anti-Semitism was, in fact, a supporter of Jeremy Corbyn.

Jenny Manson is the co-chair of Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL), a left-wing group which was founded during Corbyn’s time as party leader, partially in order to defend him against the false claims of anti-Semitism which plagued him for years.

JVL also makes a point of defending the human rights of Palestinians. Many of its leading members are veteran activists in the Palestine solidarity movement, often anti-Zionist Jews.

Happily, the police managed to track down the man who made the anti-Semitic death threat against Manson. But he got off lightly – the police only issued him with a caution.

According to journalist and producer Richard Sanders, writing last week, the abuser was himself a Jewish man, in his mid-fifties. It is more than likely that he was motivated by anti-Palestinian and anti-socialist malice.
