Stop the Expulsion of Tony Greenstein, Jackie Walker & Marc Wadsworth
‘most of the people who have been suspended from the Labour Party seem to be Jewish’ Alexei Sayle Sky TV interview
Please sign our petition. The Right, led by Iain McNicol, Labour’s detested General Secretary, the Compliance Unit and Sam Matthews aided by Anne Black Chair of the Disputes Committee, are determined to restart the False Anti-Semitism Witch-hunt.
Why is it false and faked? Because you only have to look at who supports it.
If the Labour Party were overrun by anti-Semitism does anyone seriously think that the Daily Mail, the Sun and the Tory tabloids would be concerned? Why is it that the most racist newspapers in Britain are ‘concerned’ about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party? How is it that the Daily Mail and the Express, which supported Hitler in the 1930’s, which campaigned against the admission of Jewish refugees from Nazism are now so concerned about ‘anti-Semitism’? Why is it that those papers that vilify asylum seekers and refugees, which employ columnists like Katie Hopkins and Richard Littlejohn, are concerned about anti-Semitism?
The anti-Semitism witch-hunt has nothing to do with anti-Semitism.
Of course there may be a few individuals with anti-Semitic ideas in the Labour Party. Most of them come from a reaction to Zionism’s claim that Jews, all Jews, support what Israel does. Is it surprising that some people take them at their word? It would be surprising if, in a party of 600,000 members there was no one with anti-Semitic ideas.
However when we do come across racist ideas the way of tackling them is by means of education and discussion not through expulsions and disciplinary actions. It should only be in the rarest of cases that people should be expelled for racism.
If we are going to expel anyone for racism it is Jeremy Newmark, Ella Rose and those who support the world’s only Apartheid state, Israel. It is the Jewish Labour Movement whichconsciously supports the racist Israeli Labour Party. [see Meet Avi Gabbay, Israeli Labour’s Racist New Leader]
Labour’s conference at Brighton was a great disappointment to the Right. Despite 2 years of incessant headlines about ‘anti-Semitism’ delegates were not persuaded that anti-Semitism was a problem in the Labour Party.
When Corbyn mentioned Palestine delegates were enthusiastic. When Jewish anti-Zionists Naomi Wimborne-Iddrissi and Leah Levane called out this fake anti-Semitism campaign, delegates responded with standing ovations. The JLM responded with calls for Naomi’s expulsion.
When Warren Morgan, Progress leader of Brighton and Hove Council threatened that Labour wouldn’t be welcomed back in Brighton because of ‘anti-Semitism’ he was condemned by members of Brighton and Hove Labour Parties. Not one Ward, not even his own in East Brighton supported him.
When Moshe Machover’s expulsion was withdrawn, the Jewish Chronicle was immediately informed that the proposed expulsion of Tony Greenstein, Jackie Walker and Marc Wadsworth would proceed.
On November 2nd I was informed by email that December 11th had been fixed for my expulsion hearing. At the time I was in hospital. It was not until November 5th, 5 weeks before the proposed hearing, that I signed for the Bundle that constitutes the ‘evidence’ against me. Despite supplying confirmation that I had only just been discharged from hospital, the National Constitutional Committee refused to change the date of my hearing.
I was suspended on March 18th 2016, 20 months ago. My Investigation Hearing was on May 30th 2016, over 17 months ago and yet I was given 5 weeks to prepare a response. Why? Because the Right is determined to get the expulsions over as quickly as possible. They want to move quickly before we can organise.
It is our duty to stop them. The witch hunt isn’t about Jackie, Marc or me – it is about the future direction of the Labour Party. Is the Right in the Labour Party going to be allowed to pick off socialists in the interests of US Foreign Policy, which is what support for Israel is about? Israel receives more military aid per year ($4 billion) than every other country put together. Support for the alliance with the USA means supporting the world’s only Apartheid State.
We need to stop the witch hunters in their track. Please sign this petition and share as widely as possible.
