Corbyn’s ideological assault may start with Jews – but won’t end with them
In an interview published in Sunday’s Observer newspaper, Tom Watson MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, warned that anti-Semitism must be dealt with, or the Party would “disappear into a vortex of eternal shame and embarrassment”. It is not certain if by “vortex” Mr...

Tommy Robinson’s politics surrenders truth to the mob
For me, the highlight of last week’s Israel 70 celebration concert at the Royal Albert Hall, was when Natan Sharansky ended his speech by slamming those who love Jews but hate Israel and those who love Israel but hate “liberal Jews”. Sharansky delivered the same...

Be strong against those who hate and envy us
A record number of nearly 1,400 anti-Semitic incidents (most of them racist hate crime) were reported to CST’s London and Manchester offices last year. The reports came from members of the public, security personnel and police forces across the UK, but this record high is...

Sneers and slander as anti-Israel Jews use a jackboot
What is it with the Labour Party and anti-Semitism? One step forward, one step backwards, one thumbs up, one middle finger stuck up in your face. Almost 97 percent of Labour Party Conference delegates voted for the rule change banning racism. This rule change was...

Ken Livingstone: Dragging us through the dirt
Ken Livingstone has dragged our Jewish community, Zionism and the Labour Party through the dirt. Labour’s NCC disciplinary panel agreed, finding he had brought the Party into disrepute. The punishment for this? A slap on the wrist, a fudge, a suspension not an expulsion, a...

The year Jew hate didn’t even need false pretext
This may sound a strange thing for Community Security Trust’s director of communications to say, but I do not welcome the headlines and media coverage that our latest anti-Semitic incidents report, with its record high figures, will probably attract. The reason is simple enough. I...

Cold comfort from Anjem Choudary conviction
Anjem Choudary, Britain’s most notorious Jihadist rabble rouser, has – at long last – been found guilty of “inviting support for a proscribed terrorist organisation”. On the surface, it looks like good news, but look deeper and it is hard to take much comfort. CST...

Corbyn and the rent-a-mob: How to wreck an anti-racism event
