Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party (UK) = anti-Semitism ? (4)
Many British voters are unaware of Jeremy Corbyn's antisemitic associations. Others know but don’t care. The hard left in Britain, especially among union activists and academics, include many knee jerk opponents of the nation state of the Jewish people and many supporters of academic and cultural boycotts of Israel. Many such supporters favor trade and engagement with such massive human rights offenders as PURIN'S Russia ... Indeed, it is antisemitic to single out only the nation state of the Jewish people – the Middle East’s only democracy and a nation with one of the world’s best records of human rights, the rule of law and concern for enemy civilians — for boycotts.
... The fact is that Jeremy Corbyn has NOT stemmed the tide of bigotry and anti-Jewish hate within the ranks of his party, but has played a big part in perpetuating it. British voters now have the opportunity to choose where they will go as a nation. Will they opt to move away from stability, rationality and tolerance— and toward simple mindedness, xenophobia and intolerance? I don’t know, but I hope they choose wisely.
