Jewish Chronicle attack piece on Jeremy Corbyn leads to police hate complaint

Jeremy Corbyn: he doesn’t talk about his own religious beliefs, describing them as “personal”, but he does say there is a Jewish element in his ancestry – probably from Germany. So why is a Jewish Chronicle writer apparently using him to incite hatred by Jews against Christians?

An article in the Jewish Chronicle attacking Jeremy Corbyn has been reported to the police as a religious hate crime.

Here’s the offending passage, re-presented for us by Aaron Bastani of Novara Media:

It was reported to the police by Simon Maginn, whose It Was A Scam hashtag about the anti-Semitism hysteria whipped up against Mr Corbyn generated considerable hatred towards him personally.

He tweeted:

Then he had a short dialogue with the article’s author…

… that had this result:

Personally, I think any claim that Jews are enemies of Christians, that is based on words in the Bible, would need to be justified in a modern context.

Of course, if Ms Gold is stating that Jewish people – as a group – actively consider themselves to be enemies of Christians, and is able to justify that statement in the way I have described, then the Jewish people she mentions are definitely in breach of the Equalities Act 2010 and should be punished under UK law.

If the matter goes to law, my instinct tells me only Ms Gold will be found to have infringed the law – but her words, published in a newspaper, may be considered incitement.

Put it all together and I can see the JC picking up yet another judgment against it.

    All religions are a means of propaganda to justify how their leaders behave.
    In Corbyn’s case he is vilified because he negotiates with Palestinians. Israel is a TERRORIST State.
