Joan Ryan should be removed from Twitter for supporting a libellous petition

Collaborators: Joan Ryan MP was recorded meeting then-Israeli embassy officer Shai Masot. He offered her £1 million to procure support for Israel from Labour MPs. Was this tactic successful?

Former Labour – now Change UK – MP Joan Ryan is a zealot, according to the dictionary definition of the term.

She is fanatical and uncompromising in pursuit of her political ideals – principally her support for the apartheid government of Israel.

She was recorded being offered more than £1 million by an Israeli embassy representative to recruit more support among Labour MPs for the apartheid government of Israel.

She left the Labour Party after she found herself unable to remove Jeremy Corbyn, who supports peace between Israel and Palestine rather than apartheid and genocide, from the leadership of that organisation.

But, like all zealots, she has not given up trying to get him out.

So she has signed the libellous petition vilifying the MP who has most strongly opposed the victimisation of Jews as an anti-Semite – and she has publicised the fact on Twitter.

If she thought that would encourage others to join her in signing the petition – or sway people into believing her nonsense claim about Mr Corbyn – she was wrong.

You see, Twitter now provides the ability to report other users for publishing targeted harassment. It’s very easy – you just click on the arrow pointing down at the top right of the tweet, click “Report Tweet”, on the next menu you click “It’s abusive or harmful”, and on the next menu click “Includes targeted harassment”.

If enough people do this, Ms Ryan could find her Twitter account suspended or even removed altogether. Here’s hoping, eh?

Many opinion-formers have already done so:

And don’t forget that you can report the petition to as a policy violation, as pointed out here:

And there’s more:

There’s a lot more, in fact.

And if you add your response – and report – there will be more still. Please do that.
