Palestinians are humans who have constatly chosen bad leaders and nasty allies. granted - most arab nations have down the same.

Israel treats Palestinians in it's hospitals, employs them, provides food, medicine & electricity. Their Arab brethern treat them like shit - but Corbyn & you missed that part.
Lies.

Infant mortality in Gaza strip - 22.7 per 1000.
In Israel, among Jewish population - 2.2 (among Israeli Arab population - above 6).

Your numbers don't refute my claim - Palestinians are treated in Israeli Hospitals, employed by Israeli companies and are supplied by Israeli Electricity.
not bad for a country they do their best to destroy.

Palestinians were expelled from their country, stripped from their rights and are kept in a concentration camp.

The Palestinians have their own government in Gaza, if they have no rights - they are welcome to contact their Corbyn-Friendly rulers to ask for more rights.
They can contact their former rulers, the Egyptians, to open the border.

If they would like to bring down their infant mortality to Standard Arab levels (around 17-20 per 1000), they can ask their rulers to use their budget accordingly. For example - the Helium, which they take from the hospitals to make incendiary balloons.

Tactics used by Israel and its friends in US to influence media and opinions - Al Jazeera's documentary on lobbying in USA.
They should show it at civic education lesons together with reading of "1984" book.

Not sure if you know but Swiss MPs are also ferried (well, flown) to Israel to sponsored trips to be shown the "correct" narrative.
One of these idiots even admitted in a radio interview that he was taken there and thus he knows the truth :-)

The proffesionals from Le Monde Diplomatique have already commented on this documentary and their analysis is available in English.
https://mondediplo.com/2018/09/02israel-lobby

I recommend episode 2 - it may help understand what possessed US politics (and politicians) towards Iran.

While Corbyn antisemitism might exist, it is completely not the issue; the issue is its Israel stance. But he has already voted for war in Iraq, so maybe he could send British soldiers to Iran as well...

(Former) Labour MP on Labour.

Luciana Berger says she cannot remain in a party that is 'sickeningly institutionally antisemitic'.

Sorry Castro :'(

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

Corbyn's 'friends' Hezbollah are about to get declared a terrorist group and banned. Means that it'll be a criminal offence to show support for them in the UK. Long overdue and awkward for some.

Britain to ban Lebanon's Hezbollah as terrorist group

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

From the Times.

Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, said that anyone linked to terrorist groups “should be fully investigated and where appropriate prosecuted”

Well, it made me smile.

So predictable, they just can't help themselves

Labour says there's not 'clear evidence' to ban Hezbollah as a terror group

Labour row erupts over Hezbollah ban

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

Hezbollah has only just been banned in the UK. Two days ago it was not banned, and the Tories were happily going along with this state of affairs right up until they changed their mind. Has Hezbollah changed in the past two days? If not, and if it is now deemed anti Semitic to not want Hezbollah to be banned, then surely the Tories are anti Semitic too, or were until two days ago.

Why has Hezbollah been banned? Javed, who is from a Muslim background, is making his bid to be PM by showing his "hardline" credentials. Hence his stance on Shamima and Hezbollah.

The Tory party has lurched to the right since the Brexit vote and is embracing UKIP and far right supporters.

Do you seriously think anti Semitism is a Labour only problem?

Why are we seeing the awful rise in anti Semitism in UK and Europe in the past few years?

No, but the likes of Chris Williamson should have the whip suspended, and thanks to Tom Watson, that is looking likely to happen.

To my mind, and I can only speak for myself, the 'safe space' and bastion of anti-racism and anti-Semitism that existed in the Labour Party, is being eroded by the flood of extremists who joined in their thousands when Corbyn became leader. I wish we could remove Blukip and Momentum from the political landscape and return to proper politics.

Hezbollah being banned has nothing to do with being right or left, and everything to do with the fact that they're a terrorist organisation. And they should have been banned much sooner.

Antisemitism is not exclusively a Labour problem no, but it is a massive problem in their party that simply hasn't been addressed. This is propagated by having a hopeless leader with a simplified world view that enables an environment for antisemitism to flourish.

Hopefully this split in the Labour party will encourage more MPs to take a stand against Corbyn on other matters.

A sublime 'hitting the nail square on the head' tweet.

The truly terrible thing is that Corbyn's Labour didn't act when anti-semitism was a threat to Jews; it acted when anti-semitism was a threat to it.

Hezbollah's political wing was banned, it's military wing was already banned. The UK just decided to end the laughable distinction.

The rise of Anti-Semitism is due to the spread of the Islamo-Leftist alliance's identity politics. The more Muslims you bring into Europe, the worse it gets. This is all the Left's fault, the Far Right parties have mostly excluded their Anti-Semitic elements, and their growth is pretty low compared to the explosion in the number of immigrants from the Middle East holding those toxic views. Keep up mass migration and you'll drive the entire Jewish population out of Europe!
