How many votes in those who like Jews but don’t like Israel?

If it’s the one that depicts the Jewish men as a generic hooknosed phenotype then it’s antisemitism.

I would say yes. The depiction is no different than the watermelon large eyed black man depiction or the Irish man depiction in the early 20th Century.

No. It should remain as a symbol of free speech so that people can openly debate the issue of rich old Jews becoming wealthier on the backs of the down-trodden working classes.

An accompanying mural depicting dozens of Muslim Pakistanis with their hands up a twelve-year-old girl's skirt should also be commissioned. For the sake of free-speech.

This mural is undoubtedly anti Semitic in my opinion, but everyone needs to be aware that just because this is, it doesn’t automatically mean that every picture, opinion piece, quote etc that isnt supportive of Israel or even anti some Israeli actions is also anti Semitic, that position is as untenable as any other that misses all nuance for the purpose of political traction.

No, I didn't say anything about that, I was just backing up another poster asking for the rabid Bimbo to quote an anti-semitic comment uttered by Corbyn.

The paradox is, apparently, that the mural would only be Islamophibic if the muralist said something Islamophibic in addition to painting the mural. So by not exercising their free speech they are rendering it not Islamophobic. So it's an expression of free speech that can't be expressed through speech lest that speech render it racist.

Such is the mind of Thai Guy.

I do not think it surprising that Brick Lane was chosen for the mural. Plenty of supporters for that sort of thing there. It was clearly antisemitic. It portrayed Jewish stereotypes. It made no reference to Israel, just Jewish images.

The Mayor, Lutfur Rahaman, to his credit said it was unacceptable.

Ok, now I’m confused. Either what Corbyn said about this mural’s removal was either anti-semitic or not. Bimbo being right or wrong with another poster has nothing to do with it.

Good article about how anti-semitism isn't just a few bad apples who happen to be in the Labour party but actually a very real danger of the leftist-ideology Corbyn represents.
What it shows is that, if Corbyn is as serious as he says he is about militant opposition to anti-semitism, his worldview as it is may not survive intact. Rather, it must be radically revised and rethought.

Indeed you'd have to be "rabid" to think Corbyn has a problem with anti semitism.

Two years ago shameless chakrabati was employed to investigate allegation about the party under Corbyn having an issue.

Two years later even Jon Lansman suggests Jezza should attend "anti semetic " training courses, Jezza himself admits there's a problem and 80 of his own MP's publically protest on the issue on Parliament square.

But I'm rabid. ? :lol: , get a grip, your man has just been caught out with his revolting views and "friends" again , but nothing to see here is the response, a defence of checking if he's actually said anything "anti semetic" rather than see the actual problem.

Good on you guys. Blame "rabid" posters rather than look at the slightly more obvious problems.

Not quite what Lansman suggested.
Momentum founder Jon Lansman suggested that members of Labour’s ruling national executive committee, including Jeremy Cobryn, should attend a training course on “unconscious bias”. He said:
Unfortunately in the Labour party it seems, and maybe elsewhere, many people do not seem to be willing to confront this unconscious bias in themselves. We need a big programme of education and training to make people aware of that.
He said that “all people who participate in making decisions about the cases” should go on a course. He went on
People use words like Zionism without understanding how those words are seen by some people. Some people use the word Zionism to mean the politics of Benjamin Netanyahu but most Jews in Britain see Zionism as meaning support for a state of Israel living in peace and security, rather than a discrete ideology.

I think people get too hung up on specific recurring themes in anti-semitism and start to see those themes as being the boundaries of anti-semitism when they are just examples. At its heart, anti-antisemitism is about treating Jews as somehow being different creatures - the "other". Consistently subjecting Jews to different treatments and standards than you do others, is just as much a form of antisemitism as the usual Jewish conspiracy theories and racial stereotypes.

Which is why a lot anti-Zionists are really antisemites.

Remarkable isn't it. We're disgusting bigots but didn't know it until it was pointed out. Considering the decades Corbyn and co have hung out with their friends from Hamas I personally don't buy that they don't know what Zionism actually means.

What a bunch of c unts.

David Mitchell in the Guardian this weekend
Don’t get me wrong: if there was an election tomorrow, I’d probably still vote for what most people reckon is the more antisemitic of the two main parties, in preference to the one most people reckon is the more racist in other ways. That feels like the public-spirited thing to do: to vote for the ones being racist to the fewest people. Though, of course, antisemites would be being racist to many more people if it weren’t for the success that that prejudice has enjoyed in recent history

It feels like the Labour Party that once seemed fairly honourable and on the side of blue collar workers has been taken over by a few student union nutjobs. They have a few pet topics that they waffle on about but they are totally unsuitable to govern a large, complex country. Topics include:

- Palestine
- Nuclear disarmament (generally anti-armed forces of any description)
- Rights for minority groups (as long as they aren't Jewish in any way)
- Distributive economics (as long as they personally aren't out of pocket)
- Closing good schools (except the ones that they send their own kids to)
- Anti-free market and business

No, I didn't say anything about that, I was just backing up another poster asking for the rabid Bimbo to quote an anti-semitic comment uttered by Corbyn.

Indeed you'd have to be "rabid" to think Corbyn has a problem with anti semitism.

Two years ago shameless chakrabati was employed to investigate allegation about the party under Corbyn having an issue.

Two years later even Jon Lansman suggests Jezza should attend "anti semetic " training courses, Jezza himself admits there's a problem and 80 of his own MP's publically protest on the issue on Parliament square.

But I'm rabid. ? :lol: , get a grip, your man has just been caught out with his revolting views and "friends" again , but nothing to see here is the response, a defence of checking if he's actually said anything "anti semetic" rather than see the actual problem.

Good on you guys. Blame "rabid" posters rather than look at the slightly more obvious problems.
Not quite what Lansman suggested.
Momentum founder Jon Lansman suggested that members of Labour’s ruling national executive committee, including Jeremy Cobryn, should attend a training course on “unconscious bias”. He said:
Unfortunately in the Labour party it seems, and maybe elsewhere, many people do not seem to be willing to confront this unconscious bias in themselves. We need a big programme of education and training to make people aware of that.
He said that “all people who participate in making decisions about the cases” should go on a course. He went on
People use words like Zionism without understanding how those words are seen by some people. Some people use the word Zionism to mean the politics of Benjamin Netanyahu but most Jews in Britain see Zionism as meaning support for a state of Israel living in peace and security, rather than a discrete ideology.
Lansman certainly follows the script.

Goebbels 19th principle: Propaganda cannot immediately affect strong counter-tendencies; instead it must offer some form of action or diversion, or both.

In this case diversion.
