I was too nauseated by the parade of vile accusers presented in propaganda news segments to watch the televised betrayal; I am still in shock! In an Electronic Intifada, (ei) Article entitled, “UK ‘Labour anti-Semitism’ probe finds only two ‘unlawful acts’,” they highlight the truly pathetic outcome of the EHRC’s lengthy ‘fantisemitism fishing expedition.’ They say, “The EHRC has accused former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s office of ‘political interference’ in anti-Semitism allegations. The UK’s official equality watchdog has failed to find the Labour Party guilty of ‘institutional anti-Semitism,’ after a 17-month investigation. But the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) made a veiled swipe at former party leader Jeremy Corbyn in a much anticipated new report on Thursday.” In reality, the actual conclusion of the report was drowned out by Media spin as the corrupted BBC and Right-wing press ramped-up and reinvented charges against a sworn socially progressive enemy of the establishment: Jeremy Corbyn.

ei say of EHRC that, “It accuses the party of a ‘failure of leadership’ during Corbyn’s tenure as well as “political interference’ by his office over complaints of anti-Semitism. It accuses two Labour figures – including former mayor of London Ken Livingstone – of ‘unlawful harassment’ against unspecified Jewish people. ‘Our investigation has identified serious failings in leadership and an inadequate process for handling anti-Semitism complaints across the Labour Party,’ the report states. But it makes no recommendation of any disciplinary action against individuals. The current Labour leader Keir Starmer said months ago he would implement all its recommendations. The Campaign Against Antisemitism – one of the two pro-Israel lobby groups that referred Labour to the EHRC in the first place – demanded on Wednesday that heads should roll. ‘Those responsible remain in the party and must be held to account,’ their chief executive told The Guardian.” The CAA want to gut the Labour Party with their demands.

ei point out that, “The EHRC’s impartiality has been widely called into question. Its critics – including Corbyn – say it is too close to the ruling Conservatives and point to senior EHRC figures with close ties to the government and of the body’s refusal to act against anti-Black racism. Former Labour lawmaker Chris Williamson told The Electronic Intifada that the report was ‘a major climb-down’ and that he had been vindicated. In its referral of Labour to the EHRC last year, pro-Israel group the Jewish Labour Movement had insisted that the body had a duty ‘to force the Labour Party to acknowledge that it has become institutionally anti-Semitic.’ But the final report published today notably makes no mention of that key allegation – a common smear made by pro-Israel lobby groups in the years since Corbyn became leader in 2015. “The stitch-up had no legs,” said Williamson. “The serious accusations against me could not be sustained and the EHRC had to back down. I’ve been vindicated as a longstanding anti-racist campaigner.”

ei say, “Williamson was suspended from the party in 2019 over false anti-Semitism allegations and later resigned in protest. The Electronic Intifada understands that an earlier draft of the report contained findings against Williamson. But after representations from Williamson’s lawyers, the EHRC wrote back that they would subsequently remove the findings before publication. My prediction – The EHRC report will be a disappointment for Zionists etc but they will attempt not show it too much – and make the most of it. Starmer will do exactly that and use it to attempt to change Party rules, which will cover flag waving… — Jackie walker (@Jackiew80333500) October 27, 2020 Second prediction for EHRC – those who have been duped will stay duped. Those who were complicit will use what they can. The rest? – it will make more angry. As for most minorities…. they will get the message loud and clear. The hierarchy is official policy, sod the rest. — Jackie walker (@Jackiew80333500) October 27, 2020″

ei document that, “The report claims that ‘the Labour Party committed unlawful harassment through the actions of its agent, Ken Livingstone’ (at the time a member of the ruling National Executive Committee) because in April 2016 he pointed to a ‘smear campaign by ‘the Israel lobby’ to stigmatize critics of Israel as anti-Semitic, as well as being aimed at undermining and disrupting the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn’. This claim was validated by credible undercover video footage of Israeli Embassy and Zionist Lobby involvement in the Israeli Government funded smear campaign. ei say, “Livingstone did this, the report says, by defending Labour lawmaker Naz Shah, who had posted an image to Facebook ‘suggesting that Israel should be relocated to the United States’ and a second post ‘in which she appeared to liken Israeli policies to those of Hitler.’ Livingstone has always denied saying anything anti-Semitic. He told The Electronic Intifada that the draft EHRC report had not been sent to him before publication.”

ei report that, “In a fuller statement after the report was published on Thursday, he defended his record, saying, ‘As a life-long anti-racist, I am deeply hurt by – and fully reject – the accusations again being circulated across parts of the media.’ Livingstone’s defence of Shah led to a subsequent BBC radio interview in which he (accurately) pointed out that in the early 1930s when he first came to power, Nazi leader Adolf Hitler ‘was supporting Zionism.’ But the report does not mention the long-running controversy over this comment, which led to Livingstone twice being suspended by the party and ultimately forced to resign. Instead it asserts that Shah’s posts were ‘anti-Semitic social media posts’ and that merely by denying they were anti-Semitic, Livingstone was guilty of ‘unwanted conduct related to Jewish ethnicity,’ which ‘had the effect of harassing members of the Labour Party’.”

ei say that, “The EHRC has the power under British law to force a body such as the Labour Party to come up with an ‘action plan’ to address its rulings. The report recommends Labour should commission an ‘independent process to handle and determine anti-Semitism complaints’ for an unspecified period ‘until trust and confidence in the process is restored.’ Long a demand of the Jewish Labour Movement, Starmer has already committed to establishing an independent complaints procedure for anti-Semitism. The EHRC does not have any power to sanction individuals. But James Libson, a lawyer acting for the Jewish Labour Movement, said during a JLM public meeting held on Zoom in June that an EHRC ruling naming individuals could open the way to legal action against them. ‘There may be avenues for individual people to bring [legal] proceedings themselves’ against Labour figures, Libson said, ‘if the EHRC says that this person was subject to harassment, unlawful acts, or something of that nature’.”

ei warn us that, “Having already played a major part in removing him as leader, the manufactured ‘anti-Semitism crisis’ campaign which has been seeking to remove Corbyn from Labour altogether may yet achieve its maximal goal.” We should fully anticipate the total evisceration of the Labour Party to remove the progressive Left faction for a more Corporate compliant non-opposition. We must also brace for a tsunami of SLAPP Lawsuits as all of the shallow opportunists seek to exact their pound of flesh from the rotting carcass of the dismembered political entity that was Labour. While no personal affront justifies the brutal attacks in France, Macron is defending the free speech right to be as utterly debasing of a venerated religious figure as one can possibly imagine. But here in the UK free speech is totally banished, as just daring to criticize or condemn Israel for the ruthless persecution of the cruelly oppressed Palestinians is now fully rebranded as racist and anti-Semitic hate speech! I am deeply ashamed to be British!

The false accusations of fantisemitism will now stop even with the Labour Party brought to its knees due to their appeasement of the toxic Zionist movement. Other progressive Socialist parties who have tried to criticize the racist policies of apartheid Israel have come under attack too, but their push-back has been strident and successful. In a Morning Star Article entitled, “Jewish Chronicle rapped by press regulator after misleading readers over alleged anti-semitism in the Green Party,” it is obvious that Zionist Lobby groups are trying to spread their cancerous defamation. They say, “ISPO upholds complaint by the Greens’ home-affairs spokesman Shahrar Ali. PRESS regulators have ruled that the Jewish Chronicle printed inaccuracies and misled its readers in a story about alleged anti-semitism in the Green Party. The newspaper was forced to publish a full correction yesterday after the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) upheld a complaint by the Greens’ home-affairs spokesman, Shahrar Ali.”

The Morning Star report that, “The complaint centred on claims published by the paper on December 6 2019 that Mr Ali had compared Israel’s 2009 attack on Gaza with the holocaust on Holocaust Memorial Day, in a speech given that same year. But the regulator found this both misleading and inaccurate, upholding that Mr Ali had not compared the two and had also not given the speech on Holocaust Memorial Day. IPSO ruled on Thursday that the Jewish Chronicle had breached the editorial code of conduct by presenting an allegation as fact, printing inaccuracies and failing to properly address its errors. The regulator also concluded that the inaccuracy of the timing was ‘significant’ given the ‘sensitivity of the occasion’.”

The Morning Star reported that, “The speech Mr Ali made in 2009 during the bombardment of Gaza had called for former PM Tony Blair, former US president George W Bush and then Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert to face a war-crimes tribunal. In a video of the speech, Mr Ali is heard to say: ‘Listen up warmongers. Just because you observe the niceties of Holocaust Memorial Day does not mean that you have learned the lessons of history.’ Mr Ali hailed IPSO’s ruling as an ‘important win’ that will ‘help embolden all those life-long anti-racists who want to continue to speak out against Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian people’.”

“Unfortunately, I’ve seen an inability, even in our own party and across politics in general, for people who have spoken out before against injustice [against Palestinians] to continue to do so,” he told the Morning Star. “Not only are human-rights injustices being neglected because of these fears of being stigmatised and castigated unjustly as anti-semitic, but in addition real xenophobia, true racism whether against Jews or against Muslims is not being properly addressed.” The article also accused several other Green candidates who were running in the 2019 general election of breaching the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-semitism, which the party has not signed up to. Campaigners argue that the IHRA definition is being used to silence legitimate criticism of Israel and the ability to speak up for the Palestinian cause.” Sadly the Labour Leadership fell head long into this bear trap and they have been unable to extricate themselves ever since.

The Morning Star remind us that, “It is not the first time that the Jewish Chronicle has been rapped by the press regulator over articles about alleged anti-semitism on the left and in the Palestinian solidarity movement. Several people have successfully sued the paper. Earlier this year the Jewish Chronicle was ordered to publish a 1,300-word adjudication after printing a series of false allegations of bullying and anti-semitism against Labour activist Audrey White, who also won ‘substantial damages,’ over the issue. The Jewish Chronicle was approached for comment.” It will require a serious proactive fight-back to eliminate this scourge, but the lesson here is that fantisemitism accusations are easily unravelled and debunked when the false accusers are challenged in a Court of Law. Sadly this response was never adopted by the Labour Party as they chose the path of appeasement fooled into believing the attacks would stop; the never will stop without robust Legal challenge and that is the path forward in solidarity.

In the Morning Star Article entitled, “Charity faces election bias investigation,” they highlight how, “Green Party spokesman reports the Campaign Against Antisemitism to Charity Commission over anti-Corbyn smear campaign.” Why did it take another Socialist Party to stand up to this toxic organization that is dedicated to furthering the cause of eliminating all criticism of Israel’s racist policies. No so called ‘Charity’ should exist to expressly promote the cause of racism, obscuring gross Human Rights abuses and war crimes by falsely accusing those fighting for justice of fantisemitism! But this is the perversely warped reality in which we now live where evil is the new good to be protected by weak politicians bought off by well funded lobby groups.

The Morning Star report on, “A Charity that responded to Jeremy Corbyn’s election defeat by saying that ‘the beast is slain’ is reportedly under investigation by the third-sector watchdog. Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) has been reported to the Charity Commission for heading a number of anti-Labour campaigns. The complaint, made by Green Party home-affairs spokesman Shahrar Ali, accused the group of failing to be independent of party politics — a requirement under law for charities. Mr Ali’s complaint centres on comments made by CAA’s head of political investigations, Joe Glasman, in a video published shortly after the 2019 election result. Mr Glasman comments on Labour’s election defeat by saying that ‘the beast is slain,’ also using the word ‘slaughtered.’ The bizarre video appears to show Mr Glasman admitting to co-ordinating a campaign using ‘spies and intel’ against the party.” We can only hope thart this vital piece of evidence was submitted to the EHRC.

“Mr Ali, a former deputy head of the Green Party, described the language used by Mr Glasman as ‘unconscionable’.” He told the Morning Star: “I think it is imperative that politicians from across the political spectrum call out and condemn negative campaigning which would incite hatred and goes well beyond the bounds of common decency. ‘Following Jo Cox’s murder, it is even more pressing that we do so. The fact that Corbyn is a lifelong anti-racist campaigner makes such unjust vilification by CAA especially troubling and unconscionable. This is not the kind of misconduct that a registered charity should be engaging in with impunity. We must clean up our political culture and these kinds of negative campaigns must be rooted out, exposed and combatted.’ Mr Ali submitted the complaint earlier this month. He claimed that the commission will now investigate the matter after having made an initial assessment of the concerns raised.”

The Morning Star report that, “A Charity Commission spokesperson said: ‘We have been made aware of concern regarding comments made by an employee of the Campaign Against Antisemitism, which is being assessed in line with our usual processes. By law, charitable organisations must not support or oppose a particular political party. It also states that particular care must be taken during an election campaign to not indicate to its supporters which party or person to vote for. Mr Ali argues that CAA is in breach of these regulations given its heavy campaign against Mr Corbyn. Asked whether this might have played a part in the election result, Mr Ali said: ‘Unfortunately the unrelenting campaign against Mr Corbyn, which persisted for years and was stepped up during the election, must have had a negative impact on his election. The greatest victims from our failing to challenge and correct lies in politics are the oppressed themselves, including the Palestinians who suffer daily violence, and the fight against anti-Jewish racism itself.”

According to the Morning Star, “The complaint is not the first to be made to the Charity Commission concerning CAA’s conduct. In 2018, the group was reported to the commission over its petition entitled “Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-semite and must go. The charity watchdog asked the group to reword the title ‘to ensure it complied with our guidance on campaigning and political activity,’ suggesting it has been in breach of demonstrating political party balance. CAA also reported the party to the Equality and Human Rights Commission, prompting the body to open a probe into the party. Jewish socialist group Jewish Voice for Labour has accused the group of disproportionately targeting Labour over other political parties. The group’s spokesman, Mike Cushman, said: ‘The activities of the CAA in its focus on the Labour Party have been of great concern for some time, as it does not appear to have been anything like as inquisitive about anti-semitism in the Conservative, UKIP or Brexit Parties’.”

The Morning Star say that, “This has led to many suspicions of political bias inappropriate to a charity. The fight against anti-semitism is too important for it to get submerged in partisan manoeuvring,” he said. “CAA was founded in 2014 and describes itself as ‘a volunteer-led charity dedicated to exposing and countering anti-semitism through education and zero-tolerance enforcement of the law.’ The group did not respond to requests for comment by the time the Star went to print.” This highly toxic organization, formed to obscure and distract public attention from Israeli war crimes in the bombing of Gaza, has a ruthlessly aggressive anti-Palestinian political agenda that violates the Human Rights of this oppressed people and is not in the interests of British citizens. CAA is not a legitimate ‘Charity’ and should be stripped of their charitable status; their politically motivated attacks on Labour should never have been entertained by the EHRC, but now they will try to force Starmer to purge Labour’s progressive Left.

Many people who have retained their Labour membership despite Keir Starmer reengaging on all of his campaign promises, his sacking of Rebecca Long Bailey, his cowardly capitulation, against the advice of the Labour Legal team, to squander party funds on an unwarranted pay out to John Ware with a grovelling apology that disgraced the party: is Corbyn’s removal the last straw? If they are still in possession of a Labour membership card they should certainly use it to vote for Left slate candidates on the NEC, but after that it may be time to go. In response to the ei article I posted: “There already exists a 100% Socialist, fully democratic, fair, just political party, so totally committed to tackling the Climate Crisis we created the Green New Deal: this is of course the Green Party. If, instead of remaining as an Independent MP or trying to form an entirely new party, Jeremy Corbyn aligned with the Green Party a massive swath of committed Socialists would flock to join him as would other progressive Left Labour MPs.”

I wrote, “It is possible within the Green Party to declare as Green and another unique affiliation, so Corbyn and any other like-minded breakaway MPs could renounce the Labour whip, or wait for the public disgrace of the Starmer purge, and then declare as ‘Progressive Socialist and Green’ Candidates. The Unions would have a new party to consider backing with their funding and this, on top of a sizable exodus of Labour MPs, could mean that the Captain of Capitulation, our Tory Trojan horse, Keir Starmer will lose his legitimacy as Leader. Political Parties are now recognizing the importance of the global Climate Crisis; for the Green Party it was always a major priority, but equality, peace and the Socialist agenda is just as important to the Greens.”

I concluded my comment by writing that, “However, the first past the post voting system kept the party down to a solitary very well respected MP, Caroline Lucas. A new infusion of already elected MPs could mean that the Green Party would finally gain the recognition and momentum it needs to surge in popularity among voters weary of austerity, inequality and injustice. Greens reject Zionist intervention: we have always supported the poor, the oppressed and the Palestinian cause. For MPs hounded out of Labour, the Green Party already has a well defined progressive political agenda and a fully organized party structure in place, so they could ‘hit the ground running.’ The Greens rapidly growing international membership stands ready to accept tolerant, peace loving, environmentally conscious, Socialist MPs and new members: join!” Can you imagine another 33 Green MPs in Parliament!

I do not believe it is any longer possible for the progressive Left MPs within the Labour Party to survive the imminent purge of their ranks and I think it would be foolish for them to wait for the inevitable as Keir Starmer fulfils his role as traitor to the Socialist cause. New political parties have a tough road to hoe and most do not survive; the public will go back to expecting little more than a choise between Tory and Tory lite. It has never been more important to challenge the fake ‘landslide victory’ of the Covert 2019 Rigged Election and demand a full Investigation of the result. If the truth exposes a stolen election then not only could we remove this corrupt Tory Government from office we could challenge the premise that Jeremy Corbyn should have felt obliged to relinquish the leadership. Only a complete exposure of the data leading to the total upheaval of both Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer no longer legitimately in post and forced out will expunge the damage to Labour; a “Progressive Socialist and Green Party” might just work. DO NOT MOVE ON!
