Corbyn Control

Newspaper stories about Corbyn around the topic of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party fall into two camps - the sly or the stupid.

The authors of the sly stories know that Corbyn is anti-Semitic. Their intent is to put out an implicit message that he is innocent but others are guilty.

That gets him off the hook and gives him a free hand to do something about antisemitism in his Party - or not do, as the case may be.

The authors of the stupid stories simply don't know that Corbyn is anti-Semitic and they are being played or are thoughtless.

You will have read the recent stories about he attended a celebration conducted by a Jewish Labour group that is anti-Israel.

You may think this was just ill-considered of him.

Or you may think that it is Israel that Corbyn objects to, and that he is not anti-Semitic.

But you would be wrong.

Look at the articles he wrote as a a long-time contributor to The Morning Star newspaper.

In article after article, Corbyn makes a pretty damning case against Israel – everything from screaming warplanes to snipers shooting old men in wheelchairs. And woven in is praise for Hamas.

I went through all of the articles he wrote for the Morning Star and I found one article critical of Saudi Arabia and one article of his that was critical of what was happening in the Congo.

But the greatest number of articles by far, are about Israel and critical of Israel.

And that’s what tells me that he is, under all that righteous anger, anti-Semitic.

He sees nothing good in Israel, only something to condemn.

And by only writing about Israel, over and over again about Israel, and not about all the other hotspots around the world, I know that his condemnation is lopsided.

It is his project, his hobby horse.

He says at some points that he is right to speak about it because of Britain’s role in helping to establish Israel. He says it, but he conveniently forgets how Britain was involved in colonies and the establishing of independence worldwide.

What he writes is a smokescreen for his hatred of Jews. He may not be able to admit even to himself that he is antisemitic.

It is possible that he has dressed it up in something else and hidden it from himself.

I doubt it.

I call Corbyn and McDonnell the hooded men. You can't see what they are thinking. You can work it out from what they say and don't say, and what they do and don't do.

And I think I know the game plan, but that's another story.

My point is that Corbyn is too wise not to know what he is - an anti-Semit.
