From here.

I agree that letting go and stepping back would be the best for the party (no idea either why he's clinging onto his leadership ).
Both Hamas and Hezbollah are on the EU terrorist organizations list. Saudi Arabia is not.
That's quite a difference.

Why? You're asking for blind acceptance.

Mirvis is a long-standing friend of Johnson. An independent report for you:

Calling an opinion piece in The Canary “independent” is a stretch. Poor Laura Kuenssberg has to attend Labour events with a security detail after The Canary contributed to whipping up the Momentum Sturmabteilung against her.

Nevertheless even if the Chief Rabbi is his friend, which is up for debate, it doesn’t remove how the vast majority of Jews feel about Jeremy Corbyn. The people who it most effects seem to get forgotten. A recent poll had 87% of them believing Mr Corbyn to be an antisemite.

87% of less than a third of a million.

The voters of Tyneside, the Black Country, Merthyr Tydfil and Bradford will no doubt take their feelings into account as they head to the polling station.

But the links you posted are from entirely non-biased sources?

The Chief Rabbi has claimed Johnson as a friend. No doubt about it.

The enemy of my enemies is my friend...

It's just surprising that we keep having this discussion even though we know that everyone is using the same tactics, some having more "friends", some less...it has been already pointed out that no-one can take the high moral ground for obvious reasons. Whatever.

Corbyn is pro-Palestine.
To the point where his stance is part of the problem. He doesn't see fault on both sides. I wasn't Pro-PLO in 1972. Not many people were.

Personally, I'd get all sides in a room wearing just their sock and boxers, lock them in and not let them out until they've sorted it. They've both got away with too much for too long and it's their people that suffer. Better still, lock them all up and put the women in charge. See how they like them potatoes.

Even in yesterday's interview Corbyn was hard pressed to condem antisemitism in his party.

Just make sure the crowd includes representatives of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, the United States, the United Kingdom, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union too. Maybe drag in a beturbanned Ottoman for good measure.

They're as guilty as the obvious parties in this horrible mess.

I dont understand it then. Im not big time into religion but i watch the news and over the last few years there's been tonnes of jewish groups turning up on the news saying they've got a problem with JC and how labour handles antisemitism and its a huge deal and they are really worried about the situation.

What you're saying then is they are all wrong, there isn't anything out of order and in fact its totally the other end of the scale and he's very much pro jewish people ?

So the whole lot of them, all the groups, the head chief rabbi bloke, they've all been fooled by a set of people who run the papers who hve painted JC as the opposite of this because.... they dont want him to win an election ?

It seems a bit far fetched to me.
No, what I am saying is that things get taken out of context, often on purpose.

"Friend of the Jewish community", not a personal friend.

I take it you only read the quote and not the article, then?

To be fair you asked for a source and you got one which contains more solid info than you or ToryClifton have managed to come up with thus far.

There is zero solid info - nothing in the article shows personal friendship between Johnson and Mirvis.

I provided plenty of evidence - for one example out of many see my recent post about Corbyn and his friend Rev. Sizer.
