Bookmarked by @pre: Geoffrey Bindman on Labour's antisemitism scandal: 'There has been political manipulation' | Middle East Eye
Surprise! It was all about Palestine after all."JVL knows of 54 Jewish members of the party subjected to disciplinary proceedings in relation to allegations of antisemitism. Of these, 47 are full JVL members. All 11 of JVL’s executive committee have faced disciplinary action, nine of these in response to allegations of antisemitism." ... "As Corbyn’s shadow chancellor John McDonnell noted in a letter to Starmer and David Evans, Labour’s general secretary, that to be a member of JVL is to be 35 times more likely to be accused of antisemitism than any other party member."
A gateway into the global open conversation in the fediverse for Boing folks and anyone they know.
