THE Labour Party has “lost its way,” Jewish Labour campaigners said today as the party faces a formal complaint over its mistreatment of Jews.

A legal letter on behalf of the Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL), sent to the party and copied to the Equality and Human Rights Commission, sets out evidence that Jews who disagree with the current leadership about Israel, Palestine, zionism and anti-semitism “suffer disproportionately from the party’s harsh disciplinary regime.”

Jewish members are six times more likely to be investigated and more than nine times more likely to be expelled from the Labour Party for anti-semitism than non-Jewish members, according to recent research by JVL.

The letter, sent on August 22, says the party has failed to understand the diversity of opinion among British Jews and misconstrued criticism of Israel as anti-semitism, illegitimately restricting the free expression of Jewish views on Israel and zionism.

It highlights that restrictions are contrary to Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights and to the party’s own rules.

Do your own research – don’t take my word for it.

Zionism is about establishing the state of Israel.

Zionistm is a racist ideology because it maintains that Jews are a separate race in the same way that Nazis claimed that Germans were a separate race. Both are racist ideologies.

Zionists are not representative of Jews although they try to be. The reality is that there are Jews everywhere as they have always been – just as there are all sorts of people everywhere.

Israel is a Fascist racist state just as Nazi Germany was. Israel has engaged in ethnic cleansing just as Nazi Germany did.

ed: Racism is a totally outdated concept from Colonialism. It was about regarding black people being an inferior race so that slave traders could profit from their evil trade. There is one race, the human race. Differences are simply beautiful and wonderful.

ed: And science suggest that we’re all from Africa.
