Many are in a state of shock tonight after hearing the news of Corbyn’s suspension from the Labour Party, but it will not mark the end of foreign intervention in the manipulation of UK politics if we do not take extreme action to combat this Zionist intervention. The CAA Campaign Against Antisemitism are now attacking a long list of progressive Left MPs they now want Starmer to remove! Bracing for the smear onslaught ahead, yesterday the Skwawkbox Article entitled, “Exclusive: Corbyn’s chief of staff ‘sets record straight’ on Labour, antisemitism and EHRC – the FULL version, publishes the facts according to Karie Murphy.” They say that, “The Guardian has published an article by Jeremy Corbyn’s former chief of staff, Karie Murphy, along with a separate piece by its chief political correspondent Jessica Elgot. Below is Murphy’s full article, which may differ from the paper’s edited version.” Without repeating the content I have looked at all three articles and the apologist commentary of Jon Ainsworth in a forth Guardian piece.

In the Skwawkbox Murphy states that, “In the coming weeks, we can expect to hear more about the handling of antisemitism complaints in the Labour Party. That’s because the investigation by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, launched last year, is due to be published. Dealing with the EHRC, and getting input into the investigation process, has not always been easy. So, as someone who was at the centre of dealing with these issues, in parliament and Labour HQ, I want to set the record straight. Under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, antisemites were removed from the Labour Party more quickly, transparently and effectively than ever before. As his former chief of staff, I’m proud of that record. It wasn’t easy to deliver – not because Jeremy and our team weren’t absolutely committed to protecting Jewish members and communities. Far from it. Every action we took was aimed at creating a process that got antisemites out of the Labour Party swiftly and fairly.”

Murphy says that, “In February 2016, I joined Corbyn’s office and soon afterwards became his chief of staff. Frankly, the party machine was dysfunctional. The open civil war against the new leadership is well documented. But there was a deeper problem, at least as it related to proper processes for complaints and discrimination: there weren’t any. Local parties often languished in suspended animation, banned from meeting or holding votes for years on end, without any way to restart members’ democracy. What common factor did these local parties usually have? Large minority ethnic memberships. The individual complaints system was a mess, with the unit meant to oversee it operating more often as a factional weapon than anything approaching a fair and rigorous process.”

Murphy reports that, “This ugly backdrop informed the first flare-up of the antisemitism controversy in the Labour Party as a major media story. That took place in April 2016, when old Facebook comments by the Labour MP Naz Shah and pro-Corbyn activist Jackie Walker surfaced, along with Ken Livingstone’s thoroughly offensive attempted defence of Shah’s former online activity. Action was taken immediately and Naz worked hard to rebuild relations with the Jewish community. ‘From an audit of over 300 antisemitism complaints received by the party [before Jennie Formby became general secretary], only 34 had been investigated, and of them only 10 were suspended at the time.’ Jeremy made strong public statements condemning antisemitism and demanded action be taken in the party. He also commissioned a report from the leading human rights lawyer Shami Chakrabarti. The Board of Deputies of British Jews called for her recommendations to be implemented in a ‘rigorous and swift’ manner.”

According to Murphy, “despite assurances from the party HQ and the then General Secretary Iain McNicol, they weren’t, and the system continued not to function. The figures are stark. From an audit of over 300 antisemitism complaints received by the party from November 2016 to February 2018, only 34 had been investigated, and of them only 10 were suspended at the time. This shocking failure of basic processes only began to be fully uncovered after Jennie Formby became General Secretary in March 2018. ‘Whenever we were asked for our view, we almost always suggested stronger and swifter action. In 2019, I felt we were getting on top of the process problems in the party. The results are clear. In 2017, 28 cases brought to the National Executive Committee led to just one expulsion, while in 2019 274 cases led to 45, a more than four-fold increase in expulsions per case. We had a weekly, cross-departmental antisemitism working group of party officials, forcing through the necessary changes to the system.”

Murphy claims, “We didn’t deal with individual cases at the leadership level – and nor should we have done – but we did act to improve the overall process. Apart from one brief period in early 2018 between Iain McNicol leaving and Jennie Formby taking over, we were only consulted on cases involving MPs or other elected leaders, as has always been the case in the Labour Party with all types of complaints. And whenever we were asked for our view, we almost always suggested stronger and swifter action. ‘There has been an extremely successful campaign to obscure the facts.’ Throughout the whole period, Jeremy asked me as his chief of staff to improve the process, get antisemites out of our party and begin to rebuild trust with Jewish communities. Jeremy is an anti-racist in every cell in his body and he wanted robust action following due process.”

Murphy understands that, “Many readers will find this all surprising given the dominant media narrative about antisemitism in the Labour Party, but it is the truth. While many victims of antisemitism and their allies rightly demanded action from the party, there has been an extremely successful campaign to obscure the facts. That was primarily driven by political opposition to Jeremy Corbyn’s socialist, internationalist politics. Last summer’s BBC Panorama programme about Labour and antisemitism, based on testimonies from some of those responsible for the system that only investigated 10% of antisemitism complaints from November 2016 to February 2018, claimed that there was political meddling from Corbyn’s team to protect antisemites. There wasn’t.”

Murphy States that, “Between McNicol leaving and Jennie Formby taking over as general secretary, those running the governance and legal unit began asking Corbyn’s team for their views on individual cases. Not only did we not ask for this oversight of individual cases, I thought it was a factional trap and I put a stop to it.” Speaking out for the first time she said, “I’m not speaking out for the first time to run away from the fact that antisemitism reared its head among a small minority in the Labour Party. It did. It was wrong and the party as a whole was slow to deal with it effectively. That failure, combined with a relentless and highly politicised media campaign had a serious impact: it hurt Jewish people and disturbed and confused many in our movement. Could more have been done earlier? Yes, of course. But what was done unquestionably made it easier and swifter to remove antisemites from the Party.”

Murphy concludes by offering an expectation of the new Labour Party Leader, despite the fact that he appears determined to weaponize anti-Semitism to discredit his high principled predecessor. She says, “I hope Keir Starmer and his team builds on the hugely improved system we instituted and uses the space afforded to him by the dialing down of the politicised media campaign on this issue to rebuild relations and trust with Jewish communities. It deeply saddens me that we were unable to do so. But it wasn’t for want of trying, let alone any toleration for antisemitism.” It is important to understand that ‘Under New Leadership’ it would not have been possible to get what was falsely portrayed as a massive problem completely under control the second Corbyn stepped down. The robust mechanisms that Corbyn’s team put in place are continuing to eradicate the small number of cases within the extensive Labour Party membership, but Keir Starmer is now trying to take full credit while deceitfully continuing t demonize his predecessor.

In the Guardian Article entitled, “Ex-Corbyn aide Karie Murphy says she is proud of record on antisemitism,” they report, “Murphy says she wants to set record straight, but Jewish group dismisses her claims as smearing. Jeremy Corbyn’s former chief of staff has said she is proud of Labour’s record on antisemitism, days before the equalities watchdog is expected to publish its report on the issue.” As if it were heresy, they describe Karie Murphy as, “one of Corbyn’s fiercely protective inner circle, whom several former party staffers have accused of meddling in antisemitism cases, said she had been moved to speak out ‘for the first time … [to] set the record straight,’ about the party’s handling of cases, claiming that it improved during Corbyn’s tenure.” They quote Murphy, “Under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, antisemites were removed from the Labour party more quickly, transparently and effectively than ever before. As his former chief of staff, I’m proud of that record,” she has written in a piece for the Guardian.

The Guardian report that, “The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is expected to publish its long-awaited report on Labour this week. It launched the review after whistleblowers alleged that the party was institutionally antisemitic in its handling of complaints and within local party structures. Any key figures who are criticised in the report, who could include Murphy, are likely to have been given some limited sight of its findings in advance. Murphy said there had been an ‘extremely successful campaign to obscure the facts’ about how the party handled complaints, claiming it was ‘primarily driven by political opposition to Jeremy Corbyn’s socialist, internationalist politics’ and procedural failings.”

The Guardian quote Murphy as saying, “I’m not speaking out for the first time to dismiss the fact that antisemitism reared its head among a small minority in the Labour party. It did. It was wrong and the party as a whole was slow to deal with it effectively.” But they say that, “in comments that were fiercely opposed by the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM), Murphy said a ‘relentless and highly politicised media campaign’ was also to blame. It ‘hurt Jewish people and disturbed and confused many in our movement,” Murphy had said. “Could more have been done earlier? Yes, of course. But what was done – including changes to the party’s rules and instituting detailed guidance on antisemitism for an expanded complaints team – unquestionably made it easier and swifter to remove antisemites from the party.” She added that she was “’deeply sad; that relations with the Jewish community were at such a low ebb during Corbyn’s tenure. ‘But it wasn’t for want of trying, let alone because of any tolerance of antisemitism’.”

The Guardian rushed to the unwarranted defence of John Ware’s so called, “Whistleblowers,” who they said, “worked in Labour’s governance and legal unit, several of whom went public to speak to the BBC Panorama programme, have previously said senior party staff fatally undermined their attempts to tackle antisemitism, alleging consistent interference in complaints, which Murphy denies. Several staff described experiencing breakdowns as a result of the atmosphere.” Sadly the disgusting ‘Fake News’ of the Panorama hatchet job was not challenged in Court as the Labour Legal team had recommended, but reinforced and endorsed by Keir Starmer’s shocking cowardly capitulation. To the horror of huge swaths of the Labour membership Starmer rewarded those who had committed perjury in their statements to the Court by awarding them a substantial out-of-Court settlement paid for by Labour Membership dues. The extent of this perjury could be exposed by EHRC or by the Williamsons Judicial Review of EHRC.

The Guardian reported that, “Murphy cited an audit of more than 300 antisemitism complaints received by the party from November 2016 to February 2018, which found that only 34 had been investigated.” They say, “She alleged that changes brought about by Jennie Formby as general secretary – Formby has since left the role – led to a fourfold increase in expulsions per case. Murphy said she and other staff members in the Labour leader’s office did not meddle in cases involving party members, saying she saw it as ‘a factional trap’ when she was asked for advice – a claim strongly disputed by former staff members, who have claimed they were put under inappropriate pressure in prominent cases.”

But the Guardian gave the final judgement to the rabidly anti-Corbyn Jewish Labour Movement. They reported that, “Mike Katz, chair of the JLM, said Murphy’s claims were a smear of Jewish members. ‘JLM referred Labour to the EHRC because our efforts to engage constructively with the party from 2015 onwards had been rebuffed constantly and our members faced continued discrimination, harassment and victimisation’,” According to Katz, “At no point was there genuine remorse, improvements to the system, or any real progress in the number of cases handled or outcomes. Their only success on antisemitism was the rigour with which they protected their political allies, downplayed the issue and gaslit those who spoke up against it. Smearing the pain of our members and the wider Jewish community as part of a ‘highly politicised media campaign’ is shameful.” It would be inappropriate to show remorse for alleged inaction over a serious grievance that was deliberately blown out of all proportion for political reasons.

In another guilty until proven innocent take on the as yet unpublished EHRC Report the Guardian Article entitled, “Antisemitism inquiry is Labour’s most shameful moment, says senior MP,” they have relied on the familiar tactic of getting a compliant Labour Centrist to admit guilt over unproven accusations. This was the exact same tactic used to convince the country that the Tories had won a ‘landslide victory’ in the Covert2019 Rigged Election; instead of getting Johnson to explain his unfathomable win they forced Labour MPs to endorse the validity of their fabricated defeat! In this case they chose Jonathan Ashworth whose former wife, Emilie Oldknow, was mired hip deep in the conspiracy to sabotage Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership. They just say, “Jonathan Ashworth’s comments come day before publication of EHRC report on issue. An investigation by the equality watchdog into antisemitism in the Labour party is the most shameful moment in the party’s history, a leading frontbench Labour MP has said.”

The Guardian report that, “The Equality and Human Rights Commission’s report is due to be published on Thursday after an 18-month investigation into claims of anti-Jewish racism in the party during Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership. Asked if the investigation was the most shameful moment in the party’s history, Jonathan Ashworth, the shadow health secretary, agreed that ‘it probably was, yes’. Speaking on Times Radio on Wednesday morning, Ashworth said: ‘A lot of this was about the fact that there was just a refusal to acknowledge the issue. I obviously don’t know what’s in the report, because it’s confidential, but that was a shameful period in our history, and we have to be clear that we are never going back to that, and we will do everything we can to repair relations with the Jewish community who are understandably and quite rightly hurt by the Labour party’s failure to deal with this in recent years’.”

The Guardian report that, “The EHRC launched the review after whistleblowers alleged that the party was institutionally antisemitic in its handling of complaints and within local party structures. The referral came from a number of Jewish groups including the Campaign Against Antisemitism and the Jewish Labour Movement.” Both lobby groups were firmly committed to Corbyn’s removal due to his support for the Palestinian cause. They say, “Key allies of Corbyn are expected to launch a staunch defence of their record when the report is published. Karie Murphy, Corbyn’s former chief of staff, whom several former party staffers have accused of meddling in antisemitism cases, has said the handling of antisemitism disciplinary cases improved during Corbyn’s tenure. ‘Under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, antisemites were removed from the Labour party more quickly, transparently and effectively than ever before. As his former chief of staff, I’m proud of that record,’ she wrote in a piece for the Guardian on Monday.”

The Guardian feature the comments of hateful arch Zionist, “Gideon Falter,” saying that, “the chief executive of Campaign Against Antisemitism, said there must be consequences for Labour staffers if the report is highly critical.” H expresses his determination to continue the destructive work of his lobbying group by saying that, “’The party must be forever changed after this episode so this can never happen again,’ he said. “Those responsible remain in the party and must be held to account if Sir Keir Starmer is to tear antisemitism ‘out by its roots’, as he has promised. The EHRC’s report is a pivotal moment in this corrective process, which is why we called in the EHRC and were the originating complainant in its investigation.” Falter is convinced that under Starmer’s weak and compliant leadership he can force the expulsion of Corbyn and all other champions of the Palestinian cause. Falter claimed that, “The EHRC has considered a great deal of evidence from us and we will have more to say when the report is published.”

Gideon Falter and the so called Charity ‘Campaign Against Antisemitism’ are a poorly disguised front for a Zionist Lobby group dedicated to eliminating all criticism of Israel’s ongoing cruel, blatantly racist oppression of the Palestinian people. They have been reported to the Charity Commission for their political bias targeting the Labour Party so they approached the EHRC with a serious axe to grind. Now CAA are demanding that their compliant stooge Starmer launch investigations into dozens of the progressive Labour MPs on spurious grounds of fantisemitism, a move that will effectively gut the Labour Party. We cannot allow UK politics to be dictated by the Israeli Government, but that is what is taking place right now due to totally spineless Labour Leadership under Keir Starmer. The Tories are just thankful that the heat is off their shambolic handling of the Covid 10 crisis and no one is taking much notice of their crazy plan for crash=out Brexit that will plunge the working poor of this country into years of misery.

It may take a few days for the left to fully react, but I certainly hope Labour Party members will not passively allow the Zionist lobby to gut the Labour Party. EHRC totally failed to recognize CAA’’s relentless political agenda, but this heavily biased organization will hopefully face a tough legal battle under Judicial Review initiated by Chris Williamson. The compliant BBC and rightwing press are trying to sell this travesty as a major victory for Starmer and his centrist followers, but this injustice could spark a significant Labour revolt. The grotesquely unfair treatment of Jeremy Corbyn could be the final straw where the Unions turn against Starmer and cut off Union funding. It might be time for the Socialists, including Corbyn, to find a truly 100% progressive Socialist party to join: the Green Party! If Corbyn joined the Greens Labour Party members would follow him in droves. The only hope for Labour is to expose the corruption of fantisemitism, Investigate the result of the Covert 2019 Rigged Election, ditch Starmer and install Corbyn as PM. DO NOT MOVE ON!
