Be clear, there is no such thing as an EUMC definition of antisemitism.
Be equally clear, it is not the case that the ” definition” has been discredited. Nor is it the case that the “definition” has been dropped.
There is not such a thing as an EUMC definition of antisemitism, and there NEVER has been such a thing.

So the Chakrabarti enquiry is under way. And now we are all going to play nice are we not? We are going to make our submissions and then give the enquiry some space, and let it quietly go about its business.
Unfortunately the lessons of history do not favour such an assumption.

The current frenzy about the Labour Party being riddled with antisemitism, is of course, absolute nonsense, manufactured by an unholy alliance of extensions of the Israeli Embassy and the Party’s hard right. Notably the Blairite Progress org. The reality is that there isn’t very much antisemitism in the general population. It is a fair assumption that there is less antisemitism in the Labour Party than in that general population. It is a certainty that there is less than in the Tory Party. But since the Tory Party leadership is deemed to be sound on Israel, nobody cares.

Given recent declarations of how seriously the Labour Party takes racism within it’s ranks we presumably can look forward to a weed out of party members associated with the Muslim baiting Henry Jackson Society. Here we are not talking about a handful of fringe idiots but MP’s, members of the shadow cabinet and former ministers.

The Israel Lobby doesn’t exist. If you are inclined to suggest otherwise, do not be surprised if you get arrested some time soon. As the non existent Lobby steadily accumulates more and more influence, the louder and more emphatically, does it declare that all references to what they call” Jewish Power”, are antisemitic incidents. The perpetrators, be they Christians, Muslims, or Jews will get their just deserts, and their behaviour will swell the antisemitic incident figures in CST’s next apocalyptic report.
This is the anatomy of a non event. It was all a collective dream.

Open letter to the Bishop of Guildford . ( sent by snail mail }
OPEN LETTER TO THE BISHOP OF GUILDFORD
Dear Bishop Watson
As a Christian and long standing member of The Religious Society of Friends ( Quakers ), I was horrified to see your latest press release on the subject of Rev Stephen Sizer. You might say that discipline in the Church of England is none of my business. My response would be that it is at least as much my business as it is the business of Jonathan Arkush.
The continued gagging of Rev Sizer represents the continuation of as appalling, and grotesque, a negation of basic human rights in this country, that I can recall. This negation would never be upheld by a court of law or quasi court of law, be it ecclesiastical or secular. It might profit you to reflect on why Jonathan Arkush hurriedly backed off from his CDM charge in 2013.

It was with the greatest of pleasure that I noted that Mick Davis, the boss man at the Jewish Leadership Council, had been knighted. A pleasure only matched by that of his best mate, Jonny ” export peace don’t import conflict” Arkush. Continue reading Mick gets a bargain
