The – GENUINE – anti-Semitism of Sajid Javid

Embarrassment: Sajid Javid made a fool of himself by standing in that now-stereotypically stupid wide-legged pose (lampooned above). Now he has embarrassed himself and his party by insulting British Jews.

It seems Home Secretary Sajid Javid thought he’d get some milage out of the Labour anti-Semitism row – proving either he didn’t know his language was anti-Semitic itself, or that he is really an anti-Semite.

If it needs explaining, here’s Michael Rosen (who is himself Jewish):

And Jews Sans Frontieres makes a great point –

– Sajid Javid came into the Home Office with a promise to end the conditions that led to the Windrush scandal, and instead he is making them worse.

But let’s do what we’re told; let’s look at the responses:

The “wrong kind of Jews”? That is an anti-Semitic stereotype. There is no way of painting it any differently. The Home Secretary committed an act of anti-Semitism, publicly, on Twitter.

Many responses focused on Mr Javid’s cynical use of British Jews for political purposes:

And of course, as a Conservative government minister, Mr Javid is the last person in the country who should be accusing others of failing to reach a standard of acceptability:

After the various treacheries by Labour MPs against their leader over anti-Semitism, we all know (or should) where to send complaints to that party.

According to the Conservative Party code of conduct, “if any individuals wish to make a formal complaint against elected representatives or officers of the party, they should email [email protected]”.

    Get your complaint in, now? I hope that the Conservative complaints people are more expedient that £abour’s. I’m still waiting for a response. Shameful.

    With the right wing press joining the money grubbers of the right in wholeheartedly working to assassinate anyone who’s political leanings are different from there own, at a time when the prime person in the USA is ranting about Mexicans crossing the border whilst conveniently forgetting the way they crossed the American Indians borders and slaughtered those folk as they stole their lands, perhaps the time is approaching when true justice will begin to assert itself! The right wing will soon destroy all that is good in our world, and then, perhaps, the goodness of the universe will strike them fully and finally!

    Before you were talking about anti-semitism, I never knew there was any wrong or right Jews I think we should live our own faiths and beliefs, I don’t have any faith or beliefs, I used to a bit but that was soon battered out of me physically , emotionally and mentally. Saying that I will always try to respect other people for who they are and to some extent what they believe, if it ever comes up in converation.
