What did the leaders of the Jewish Labour Movement expect after they held an “almost unanimous” vote of “no confidence” in Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party? Applause?
The simple fact is that most people who give such matters more than a passing thought have seen through the machinations of the organisation whose former name – Poale Zion – translates as “Workers of Zion”; the Zionist Labour Movement.
After a relaunch in 2015 it is an organisation of people – not necessarily Labour Party members or even Jews – who support the far-right Likud government in Israel and its policy of slow genocide against the Palestinian people.
So of course it is opposed to Jeremy Corbyn’s philosophy, that requires a peaceful solution to the Israel/Palestine question. And the group’s leaders aren’t above creating false evidence to suggest wrongdoing on the part of the Labour leader.
For years, the Labour leadership has followed a policy of appeasement that has done nothing but encourage this treacherous organisation and its leaders into ever-more-outrageous outbursts.
But it seems to have overstretched itself this time, as increasing numbers of people are demanding the organisation’s expulsion from affiliation with the Labour Party on any level at all.
Here’s just one reaction to the “no confidence” vote:
Diana Neslen followed up on this with: “Time the JLM affiliated to a party more in keeping with their values The Tory party springs to mind. They show nothing but contempt for Labour and have no reason any more to remain affiliated.”
As Sam Langdon put it on Twitter: “Maybe I’m wrong and happy to be corrected but would it be so bad for them to go? JLM aren’t necessarily anything to do with Labour anyway, and all they seem to do is sprout rubbish? Wouldn’t it be better?”
On Facebook, the criticism came thick and fast.
Nicola Giles stated: “I think it was already decided a long while ago.. what the jlm were going to do.. it’s a long coordinated campaign. just to keep dragging it out… yet actually Jewish members don’t seem to be able to get their voices heard.”
Jason Cox stated: “It’s a grave injustice these people are doing to the Labour Party and Jewish people and the fight against genuine anti semitism.”
Here‘s Kevin Glieg: “Why is this organisation called Jewish (not necessary to be Jewish to be a member), or Labour (not necessary to be a Labour Party member); the Labour Party should expel this group.”
Mike Cobley: “JLM are detrimental to the party’s campaigning mission and electoral viability – they should be brought to account for this.”
Jan Hutton was “sick and tired of this orchestrated attack…”
Ruby Foxe stated: “The Labour Party should expel the JLM.”
Linda Poulson: “Let them go they are trying to destroy Labour from within.”
Melissa Spenner Naylor: “Bout time the party got rid of the JLM.”
These are a fraction of the comments received by This Writer alone.
As I have stated previously: Enough is enough.
It’s time Labour regrew its backbone and kicked out the misnamed Jewish Labour Movement once and for all.
