Corbyn ally says rabbis 'make up duff information' on anti-Semitism

Peter Willsman, a close ally of British Labour Party chairman Jeremy Corbyn, has accused rabbis of "making up duff information without any evidence at all" about anti-Semitism in the party, further escalating the crisis between Labour and the Jewish community in the UK.

A recording surfaced on Tuesday on comments Willsman made at a meeting of the Labour's national executive committee (NEC) last month, in which he is also heard accusing Jewish "Trump fanatics" of making up allegations of anti-Semitism in the party.

Leaders of the Jewish community expressed outrage over the remarks which were made during a meeting which concluded with participants deciding not to fully adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism.


  1. It's the biggest political story in the UK right now, he is a "friend and brother" of Hamas. Essentially, the same as Neturei karta.

  2. The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance "Working Definition of Holocaust Denial and Distortion" includes this:

    "Attempts to blur the responsibility for the establishment of concentration and death camps devised and operated by Nazi Germany by putting blame on other nations or ethnic groups."

    According to that, I am an anti-semite. Because I put partial blame on the Jews for the Holocaust. Both from the side of some Jews abandoning the Torah; and from the side of complicity in executing the Holocaust, even if done mostly unwittingly, and lot of it was NOT done unwittingly. Some even blame "Zionist" leaders in Eretz Yisrael at that time of not wanting Jews from certain communities to be coming to Eretz Yisrael.

    I haven't researched the latter sufficiently, though. But here's a taste:
    "The new biography also contains quotes in the same off-putting vein, such as Ben-Gurion’s comment as chairman of the Jewish Agency Executive: 'The disaster of European Jewry is not directly our affair.'"

    The question I have is that even if we accept the Working Definition as useful, why should the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance dictate to Labor how they should act?

    The same question can be asked of the ADL and the SPLC: What gives them the right to twist Silicon Valley around their finger regarding things like hate speech?

  3. Non-jews hate it when Jews call out political leaders who are anti-Jewish. They hate the Jews who do it not because the Jews are wrong.

    They hate the Jews who do it because those Jews are not perfect -- but if a non-Jew calls a Jew out for being out-of-order, there's a kneejerk reaction to call the non-Jew an anti-semite.

    The non-Jew feels it's an unfair playing field: some Jews act as non-Jews when they want to be accepted in non-Jewish society, but then will sometimes revert to playing the Jewish victim the minute they are called out by non-Jews for their indiscretions.

    So, the Jews who keep banging away at Jeremy Corbyn are overplaying their hand, and playing right into the hands of their enemies.
