It’s hard to discern fact from fiction amid the deluge of nonsense about anti-Semitism being heaped on us all by enemies of Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters in the Labour Party.

The thing to remember is that these people have political motives. They don’t care about real anti-Semitism. When a genuine anti-Semitic attack took place in London recently, the principle campaigners against Corbyn were holding a demonstration about Labour instead. None of them said or did anything about it.

And they love to bandy about false claims that Mr Corbyn is an anti-Semite.

I’d love to see some of these people try to explain the following:

On November 7, 1990, Mr Corbyn condemned “the increase in the dissemination of anti-Semitic and racist materials in the United Kingdom”.

On November 26, 2004, Mr Corbyn condemned “terrorist, anti-Semitic attacks on two Istanbul synagogues”.

On February 26, 2009, Mr Corbyn condemned “vile and anti-Semitic material on the Internet”.

On March 23, 2009, Mr Corbyn praised British people who aided Jewish people during the Holocaust.

On July 2, 2009, Mr Corbyn congratulated the Bradford Reform Synagogue on attaining Grade II* listing.

On February 9, 2010, Mr Corbyn congratulated Jewish News on its investigation into the use of Facebook to promote anti-Semitism.

On June 13, 2012, Mr Corbyn criticised the BBC for removing programming for Jews from its schedule.

Only March 1, 2013, Mr Corbyn condemned anti-Semitism in sport.

On January 9, 2014, Mr Corbyn praised the teaching of the Holocaust in UK schools and commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day.

And On June 22, 2015, Mr Corbyn praised the London Jewish Forum for its opposition to racist rallies.

All of these happened before he became Labour leader (thanks to Left in Kipperland – @LKipperland on Twitter – for the information).

Mr Corbyn had no public-relations reason to do these things as he was not Labour leader at the time. So why would he?

Logic suggests his reason is the obvious: Because he is a genuine multi-culturalist who doesn’t have an anti-Semitic bone in his body – as these British Jews stated.
