Anyone could be forgiven for thinking that Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-Semite who should be ousted from the Labour Party leadership, if they were paying attention to mass media outlets for right-wing propaganda – like the BBC.

But the fact is that he isn’t and he shouldn’t, and there are plenty of people who are happy to stand up for him.

Here’s Hugh Kerr, of Edinburgh:

“For the record as a former Labour Party member for many years and a councillor and an MEP I never encountered anti-Semitism in the Labour Party; indeed Jewish members were active in every section of the party without encountering any prejudice.

“The so-called problem has only begun when Jeremy Corbyn became Labour leader; not because he is anti-Semitic, I’ve known him for more than 40 years and he is a committed anti-racist.

“He has been targeted because he is a supporter of Palestinian rights and the people attacking him inside and outside the Labour Party have close connections to the Israeli government.

“Indeed Al-Jazeera had a very good documentary of people from the Israeli embassy boasting they have a fund of a million pounds a year to bring down their enemies.

“Of course, if I was a member of the Labour Party I could be expelled for stating the above.

“It is not anti-Semitic to criticise the State of Israel for its dreadful treatment of Palestinians and I hope we in Scotland can continue to uphold that right despite the BBC’s dreadful bias!”
