Police launch investigation into Campaign Against Antisemitism’s ‘death-threat’ petition

This just in, courtesy of Skwawkbox:

The Charity Commission is investigating the Campaign against Antisemitism (CAA) – an organisation that has been accused of being pro-Israel ‘shock troops’ ‘posing as a charity’ with regard to its petition against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

As well as being a likely breach of charities’ obligation to refrain from party-political activity – the petition demands Labour MPs remove Corbyn or form a new party – the petition has been called defamatory and accused of inciting number of death threats. The CAA has condemned the death-threat comments, but did not remove them and has not taken down the petition.

Now the Metropolitan Police have also confirmed that they are investigating the CAA and the petition under the Malicious Communications Act after receiving complaints about the nature of the petition.

    Good,so far these deeply unpleasant people have been allowed to act with impunity.Let this be just the start of taking back the agenda from Zionist groupings.

    well at least the petition site has removed comments [and blocked further comments] plus added a header telling people that the petition is being investigated by them for being fallacious.

    Thanks to your alert Mike, I imagine a number of your readers ( I certainly did!) have contacted Change.Org to suggest that there has been, indeed, a breach of the law.

    If this can contribute to the discrediting of the CAA then all to the good as they are discrediting the concept of what is antisemitism and of no real service to the jewish Community.

    I wonder why people think anti Semite only refers to Jews when it also refers to Arabs who are Muslims like the Palestinians. /

      Because the term “anti-Semitism” only refers to Jews. There are other Semitic races but the term you mention is specific to Jews.
      Lots of people make that mistake and you are a repeat offender.
