Hungarian antisemitism is all right with the Tories, though...

I don't know about the rest of you, but since the Archbishop of Canterbury has spoken up about the failures of the gig economy, worsening poverty etc.
He could start by practicing what he preaches.

A known "Anti Israel" who defaced a wall in the Warsaw Ghetto will feature in a Labour event with Corbyn.
Not particularly nice but it's quite apt to use the Warsaw Ghetto wall to protest against the ghetto in Israel the Palestinians are forced into. Of course it may be anti-Israel but that's not a given at all.

Comparing Israel to Nazi Germany is antisemitic.

Comparing Israel to Nazi Germany is antisemitic.
It's not a comparison, let alone to Nazis or KZ. It's a reminder that other nations have the exact same right to not be suppressed, and having endured what the Jews went thru gives them no free pass to doing to others what they have suffered.

But as usual, anything that criticises Israel is automatically antisemitic for you.

Re: Jeremy Corbyn refuses to denounce terrorist 'friends' Hamas and Hezbollah

Saying that Israel is forcing Palestinians into Ghettos is:

1. comparing Israel the Nazis.
2. Factually wrong.
3. likely to attract Jew haters.

You are Jeremy Corbyn and I claim my 5£

Perhaps Netanyahu should also practice what he preaches and not associate with known anti-semites.

What he does is the business of the Israeli electorate. What Corbyn does is our business.

As an expat? it most certainly isn't.

Expats have no representation in UK Government.

Re: Jeremy Corbyn refuses to denounce terrorist 'friends' Hamas and Hezbollah

As long as I have a vote in the UK, it is my business. Have you never seen the queues outside the embassies in London when other nations have their elections? My OH queued for over 4hrs to vote in his country's election.

Again you compare Israel to the Nazis. this is antisemitic.

Your antisemitic post was thanked by a moderator on a thread which discusses Antisemitism in the Labour party.

Actually, if you read the bolded "working definition" you linked to, you will see you are wrong. Ironically.

Comparing factual similarities of the two is not antisemitism.

You're absolutely right, im going to write to the House of Commons MP for the constituency of Switzerland right away.

As you rightly claim, The house of commons does indeed place significant weight on the needs and wants of people who dont live in the UK anymore.

Is this the bit where you claim EF is institutionally racist because it allows discussions you dont like?

Again, straight out of the playbook.

Go hang around in a Middle Eastern country during the outbreak of a revolution. You'll soon find that you're well represented by the UK government, and be grateful for it too.

You're confusing Consular Assistance with Parliamentary Representation.

The former is legally required to anyone with a UK passport. The latter is offered to those who are constituents of an MP in the HoC.

Big difference, discernible to those with even the meanest of intelligence...

PS, I've been in ME countries during revolutions. Wasn't that big of a deal, tbh.
