Accused: Wes Streeting.

Labour MP Wes Streeting, who has been vocal in his attacks on fellow party members accused of anti-Semitism, has become the third high-profile witch-hunter to receive the same treatment.

He joins Tom Watson and Margaret Hodge in having an anti-Semitism complaint aimed at him.

Here’s Skwawkbox to explain:

The Orthodox Jewish member, who asked not to be named, has made the complaint with regard to tweets and retweets by Streeting labelling Charedi Jewish member Shraga Stern as ‘homophobic’ and ‘anti-LGBT’ for his campaign to maintain sex education as a matter for the parents of Orthodox children, as well as his assertion that Orthodox Jewish values are not Labour values. The complaint includes copies of a number of social media posts.

The complaint states:

Below and attached are five antisemitic attacks,  smearing me for the one and only reason for being an Orthdox Jew and wanting to uphold Jewish tradition…

Attacks… are clearly for the reason that I intend to hold on to my Jewish traditions.

The above is original antisemitism via inciting hate against religious Jews and has caused to the killing of millions of Jews throughout the years.

I am anxious about this hostile environment and racist attacks by some individuals within the Labour party… This is extremely dangerous and needs to be dealt with as a matter of urgency.

I am hurt by all this and wonder if Labour is the neutral home for visible Jewish People.

Being attacked by an official elected Labour MP for being Jewish needs to be taken as a wake-up call and rooted out of the Labour party. Every Jew has the rights to be a Jew and all need to be treated the same at the Labour Party.

I urge the Labour Party to suspend him until the investigation is over.

Labour Party rule 2.1.8 makes it clear that: “The NEC … shall regard any incident which in their view might reasonably be seen to demonstrate hostility or prejudice based on … religion or belief … as conduct prejudicial to the Party.

As with the Watson and Hodge cases, it will be interesting to see how the party’s leaders rule on this.
