BY GAVIN CHAMBERS On the 27th of January, I hosted an online event for Holocaust Memorial Day. The day itself is marked for remembrance not only of the Shoah, the attempted destruction of the Jews by Nazi Germany, but also for genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Former Yugoslavia and Darfur. The main point of concentration, however, was the Shoah. We had a rabbi give a talk and … Continue reading Never Forget, Never Again
BY CAPEL LOFFT My Letter of Resignation from the Labour Party: Dear Membership Services and CLP Secretary, I am writing to resign my membership of the Labour Party. I have no illusions that the Labour Party centrally will be interested in why, but for my own sanity I want to put into writing the reasons why. I have been a member of the Labour Party … Continue reading Live Not by Lies
CSM EDITORIAL Fortunately, the next UK General Election is a long way away. It is scheduled to be held on Thursday 2nd May 2024, in line with the Fixed-term Parliaments Act. Nonetheless, presuming Covid restrictions fade by the end of 2022, there are certain predictions that can be made even now. Despite by then 14 years of Tory rule, Labour has little hope of winning … Continue reading Trojan Labour Unelectable
BY MARCUS STEAD With each year that passes, the number of Holocaust survivors still living dwindles ever further. For many years after the liberation of the concentration camps, survivors often did not tell their stories, the full horror of what they had experienced being too painful to recount. But in recent decades, as they approached old age, survivors began to speak more openly about what … Continue reading Welsh Nationalism’s Shameful Antisemitism
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It is in the best interests of the country to continue to expose the anti-Semites who flourished under Jeremy Corbyn’s (for want of a better word) leadership of the Labour Party. Having publications such as the Jewish Chronicle expose anti-Semites like the toxic Bristol University professor David Miller and the lunatic Editor of The Canary, Kerry-Anne Mendoza, is beneficial but not sufficient. … Continue reading King Solomon’s Choice
CSM EDITORIAL When this plague is over – presuming there is a return to normality at some point in the near future – it shall be interesting to see how the Labour Party goes about its business. The introduction of Sir Keir Starmer as Labour Leader has been positive not just for Labour but for the whole country. Governments need something of an opposition just … Continue reading The End of Pies?
Chava Boroda now lives in Los Angeles. However, her family was among thousands of people from the USSR, whose story of moving to the United States as political refugees is inspiring. Chava’s family was among those “Refuseniks” who proved to the world how willpower can triumph over even the strictest regime in the world. The world has slowly forgotten emotional and powerful stories of “Refuseniks”. … Continue reading Refusenik
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Far from ‘never again’, seventy years on from the Holocaust, a repeat of its horrors seems all too conceivable. Although Britain has pushed what is now one of Europe’s most racist and antisemitic parties into near insignificance, the question remains: for how many was opposing antisemitism a motivating factor? As its scars fade into the dermis of history, the fear is, so … Continue reading UK Antisemitism Still Ubiquitous
CSM EDITORIAL Tom Watson’s play for the leadership of the Labour Party has been obvious for many years now. This week’s bashing of Jeremy Corbyn and his acolytes by Watson is nothing new. Watson correctly declared that “only sunlight can disinfect Labour of anti-Semitism now” and he critiqued Labour’s handling of its spiralling antisemitism crisis. Watson slammed Labour and its General Secretary Jennie Formby, a close … Continue reading Watson’s Antisemitism Hypocrisy
BY JAMIE FOSTER With the hashtag #sacktomwatson flying around the web and Corbynites up in arms at his apparent treachery towards Jeremy Corbyn, under-pressure Tom Watson MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party (for now), put out a speech over Twitter that shows the desperate nature of his Brexit position: Great video & speech today by @tom_watson pic.twitter.com/CAp9nbKRxC — Andrew Adonis (@Andrew_Adonis) June 17, 2019 … Continue reading Waning Watson
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN “What we see the public sees,” so claimed a friend this week, discussing the horror show that Labour (and the non-conservative part of the Conservative Party) has become. His theory was that the general public know that Corbyn is a terrorist-sympathiser and an anti-Semite; that Emily Thornberry is a hypocritical prig; that anti-McDonald’s John McDonnell is a rabble-rouser with a penchant for … Continue reading The Blind Labour Timebomb
BY JAMIE FOSTER Antisemitism is on the rise in the US and Europe according to two reports out this month. Jews around the world were feeling an ‘increased sense of emergency’ said Moshe Kantor, President of the European Jewish Congress while launching the Kantor Centre Report into Global Antisemitism. The analysis by the group, which represents Jewish communities across Europe, found a rise in all … Continue reading Shameful Labour Antisemitism
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The Oppressor and the Oppressed. This is the way that those Hard Left Labour people think. Call their disease liberation theory or postmodern neo Marxism. Call it what you will. This is the rigid prism through which Labour acolytes in Britain in May 2019 see the world. How it must be draining. Just as reading the output from the likes of David … Continue reading The Prism
BY JANET G Publicly, Tom Watson, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and MP for West Bromwich East, has been supportive of other MPs who have suffered from anti-Semitism within the party and on social media. He has openly discussed individual cases and he’s been vocal about asking for bans from the Labour Party for anti-Semitic perpetrators. So, why Watson’s apparent silence on the anti-Semitic … Continue reading Watson’s Silence Gets Louder
CSM EDITORIAL It was inevitable that the Labour Party – having failed before – would try and revive attacks on the Conservative Party for “Islamophobia”. After all, Anti-Semitism is consuming the Labour Party and it’s in the nature of Marxist nihilists to paint obstacles to their revolution with negative colours. Those pulling the strings of Corbyn’s Labour Party (Murray, Lansman, Butler, McDonnell, Milne and the … Continue reading The Anti Semites’ Failing Smear
BY JOHN ISMAEL It’s well-known that Jewish Voice for Labour exists to tackle allegations of antisemitism in the Labour Party, not actual antisemitism. And the head of this dreadful organisation of Corbyn shills is a woman called Jenny Manson. Manson has admitted she “started the organisation for two purposes (I would say), one was to work with other Jewish organisations (that I’ll mention on behalf … Continue reading Labour: Beyond Trolling
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Synecdoche is a figure of speech in which a part is made to represent the whole or vice versa. The word comes from the Ancient Greek word synekdoche, which means “simultaneous understanding”. Thus, boots on the ground—refers to soldiers. New wheels— refers to a new car. Ask for her hand — refers to asking a woman to marry. Suits—can refer to business people. … Continue reading Beware the Cowardly Synecdoche
BY PAUL NEWALL When I was a little boy I had to ask my Dad what a Jew was. We were stood in a grotty bingo parlour on Blackpool sea front. My mum as always was feeding money into the coin operated bingo machines and my dad and I were keeping ourselves occupied on slot machines and filling up on candy floss. I heard the … Continue reading Why Antisemitism?
BY JAMIE FOSTER Labour moderates seem to be considering a deal with Corbynites in order to prevent Brexit. Despite having been savagely attacked over years, the moderates are so concerned about Brexit that they might be prepared to halt their attacks on Corbyn and play down the antisemitism that is rife in the party if Corbyn will vote against Theresa May’s Brexit plan. Leading Remainer … Continue reading Embrace Antisemitism to Remain?
BY JAMIE FOSTER Jewish MPs and delegates to the Labour conference next month will be offered bodyguards to protect them from harassment and intimidation by left wingers. The Jewish Labour Movement is said to have had talks with the Community Security Trust, a charity that provides security to Jews targeted with antisemitism. MPs who have been targeted in the past for speaking up against antisemitism … Continue reading Corbyn’s Inescapable Shame
