Threat of Corbyn

AS Theresa May’s government slides into chaos, Jeremy Corbyn advances his push for power — and the threat to the Jewish community that poses.

He has consistently refused to face questions on his pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel attitudes, and attend community meetings to discuss the (very relevant) accusations.

The letters from Anthony Levine and Geoff Rowland in last week’s Jewish Telegraph both hit the nail on the head, both a scary reality.

He has already pledged to recognise a Palestinian state (“as a priority”) if he is elected.

If God forbid, he becomes PM, there is no doubt the UK’s trade relations with Israel will, as Mr Levine says, suffer badly, while possibly making up the shortage with increased weapons sales to Hamas and Hezbollah, financed by Iran.

The Labour Party’s attitude towards antisemitism has flowed over into the public media domain.

Nick Hewer, formerly of The Apprentice and chairman of the Countdown programme, has apparently quit the party, along with his co-presenter, the mathematician Rachel Riley, who has been trolled and received vile messages on the internet for speaking out on this very problem.

Oh that other Jewish figures in showbusiness and the music field would be courageous enough to do likewise.

One of the few hopes that British Jews have is that the Tories at present are six points ahead, and the possible realisation that a Labour government will cost the country in doctors, teachers, lecturers, business executives, specialists and workers in commerce and industry.
