This mornings news continues to be dominated by Labour's crisis over anti-Semitism. Corbyn remains in almost complete denial despite having to agree to the suspension of MP Naz Shah and one of his long term allies Ken Livingstone.
As the Times pointed out in it's editorial yesterday, Corbyn has seemingly never engaged with anyone he doesn't agree with and has surrounded himself with unsavoury types such as Andrew Fisher and Seamus Milne.
Milne is an old fashioned unreconstructed Stalinist who still pursues what use to be called "Third Worldism" and is now known as "anti-imperialism. This nefarious ideological outlook just hates democracy and the West.
Any movement that has potential to undermine the West and it's allies is to be praised. With the rise of Islamism the left has found new allies to achieve our destruction. The focus on the destruction of Israel is THE key element of the left in the UK.
The fact that groups like Hamas (which are NOT liberation organisations but theologically based religious terrorist groups is ignored. In their charter HAMAS make their genocidal views quite clear:
This Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement (HAMAS), clarifies its picture, reveals its identity, outlines its stand, explains its aims, speaks about its hopes, and calls for its support, adoption and joining its ranks. Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realised.
Here is Corbyn's adviser cheering on Hamas despite this.
Is it any wonder Labour (and the bulk of today's left) has an anti-Semitism problem?
