Increasingly the UK Labour Party and its affiliate groupie organisation Momentum ban certain Jews from meetings under the guise of them being Zionists. What is becoming evident is that this current Labour Party under the leadership of Corbyn, pays lip service to the IHRA definition of antisemitism.
Several Jews have had their pre-booked tickets rescinded for the Redbridge Momentum meeting tonight where the topic for discussion is Labour, Britain’s Jews and Antisemitism – A Different Perspective. One would have thought they’d have welcomed some fresh input to this ongoing Labour Party antisemitism brouhaha, that they’d welcome the opportunity to show that Labour is not institutionally antisemitic. But no, they prefer instead to retain a safe space in which they can continue to indoctrinate their foot-soldiers with propaganda and falsehoods about Zionism and those of us who proudly support Israel.
In our letter to Rayla Javaid who sent out the cancellation notices, we wrote asking the reason for such drastic action. It is curious that the Labour Party/Momentum should fear a few Zionists coming along to hear their case and challenge their speakers with fresh ideas, providing some balance they never provide on their platforms.
In this ongoing issue of a potential UK Government ringing in the Jew hatred of Europe circa 1930’s, we will continue to oppose, to challenge and to bring information about this Labour racist endeavour.
