A councilwoman for the Scottish Labour Party said three British Jewish newspapers may be working on behalf of the Mossad after they posted a joint front page article warning that anti-Semitism had eroded the Labour party and posed an “existential” threat to British Jewry.

“If the purpose is to generate opposition to anti-Semitism, it has backfired spectacularly. (I)f it is to get rid of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Leader, it is unlikely to succeed, and is a shameless piece of cynical opportunism.

“And if it is a Mossad assisted campaign to prevent the election of a Labour Government pledged to recognise Palestine as a State, it is unacceptable interference in the democracy of Britain,” Mary Bain Lockhart wrote on Facebook.

 

“Israel is a racist State. And since the Palestinians are also Semites, it is an anti-Semitic State. It is time we stopped propitiating,” she also wrote.

Israel was repeatedly attacked in the comments to the post.

The three newspapers – The Jewish Chronicle, long the community’s flagship newspaper; the Jewish News, a relative newcomer; and the Jewish Telegraph, which has editions in many of Britain’s northern cities – on Wednesday all published the same editorial warning of the “existential” threat to British Jewry that a government led by Jeremy Corbyn would pose.

“We do so because the party that was, until recently, the natural home for our community has seen its values and integrity eroded by Corbynite contempt for Jews and Israel,” the editorials said, referring to the Labour Party. “The stain and shame of anti-Semitism has coursed through Her Majesty’s Opposition since Jeremy Corbyn became leader in 2015.”

Scottish lawmaker Paul Masterson of the Conservative party told the newspaper The Courier: “For a Scottish Labour councillor to claim that Britain’s leading Jewish newspapers, and by extension the British Jews who work for them, are acting as agents for the Israeli secret service to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of Number 10 is ignorant, offensive and horrifying.” He added that Lockhart’s remarks “are anti-Semitic and demonstrate that she is unfit to hold public office.”

 

Now, where is that pesky, internationally accepted definition of Antisemitism?

"Now, where is that pesky, internationally accepted definition of Antisemitism?"

 

you mean the one that hasn't been universally accepted ?

 

I'd be surprised if these newspapers weren't influenced by Mossad. 

Does anyone seriously think the likes of the Times and Telegraph are not influenced by the British state ?

 

Israel is a racist state and is practicsng apartheid

They are a regional superpower and a nuclear one at that.

They have invaded and occupied neighbouring countries

Not accepted by you and your Jew baiting friends in the Labour party.

 

One of the eamples within the Working Definition of Antisemitism by IHRA, that you, as an expert,  will recall is

 

"Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations."
 

This seems to me, as a non expert, pretty close to what the half wit Lockhart is promulgating.

 

It has now reached the stage where the Jew haters' pronouncement are not even nuanced.......

It's not often I actually find something funny about the Labour Party but the Mossad claim was a true laugh-out-loud moment. It's getting desperate now and the more they try to cover up, the more guilty they look.

 

The party that made so much political capital by positioning itself as the caring-sharing, all-inclusive bastion against racism and prejudice turns out to be a rat's nest of bigotry and racism. It can't be easy for the believers to swallow.

It's fun to watch Labour and Tories fight it out over isms and phobias.  Hopefully they destroy each other.  

 

How's the Tory Islamophobia investigation going?  

 

We badly need some new political parties.  The current lot are a gaggle of empty shells.

They're also the only democracy in the Middle East.

 

They're so racist they spent millions on several covert operations to extradite tens of thousands of Falasha from Ethiopia and Sudan and into Israel.

UK government urged to investigate Israeli plan to 'take down' minister

Opposition parties call for removal of Israeli embassy staffer Shai Masot

Theresa May was on Sunday facing mounting pressure to launch a full investigation into an Israeli diplomat caught plotting to "take down" a British minister for his opposition the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.

The opposition Labour and the Scottish National parties both called on the British prime minister to investigate Shai Masot, who caught by an undercover reporter discussing with a British civil servant how to discredit deputy foreign minister Alan Duncan.

The Israeli embassy on Saturday said Masot would be removed from his "junior" position and apologised for his actions, while Britain's foreign office said: "The UK has a strong relationship with Israel and we consider the matter closed."

However, Emily Thornberry, the Labour shadow foreign minister, called for the removal of Masot from the UK and a full inquiry into the affair, which she described as a "national security issue". The call was echoed by the Scottish National party, while dissent began to grow within May's Conservative party over the foreign office statement.

REVEALED: Israeli diplomat caught on camera plotting to 'take down' UK MPs


Thornberry said: "The exposure of an Israeli embassy official discussing how to bring down or discredit a government minister and other MPs because of their views on the Middle East is extremely disturbing," she said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Improper interference in our democratic politics by other states is unacceptable whichever country is involved.

 

"It is simply not good enough for the Foreign Office to say the matter is closed. This is a national security issue.

"The embassy official involved should be withdrawn, and the government should launch an immediate inquiry into the extent of this improper interference and demand from the Israeli government that it be brought to an end."

The SNP's foreign affairs spokesman, Alex Salmond MP, said: “It is completely unacceptable for the government to declare the matter closed - Shai Masot must go and go immediately before the end of his tenure at the Israeli embassy.

"Boris Johnson must right now revoke Mr Masot's diplomatic status and remove him from the country as would most certainly have happened had the circumstances been reversed.I would expect the UK Government to fully investigate this matter."

Nicolas Soames, a former Conservative defence minister, likened the tactics of Masot to Soviet spies during the cold war.

He told Middle East Eye: "This ranks as the equivalent of Soviet intelligence in what they are doing to suborn democracy and interfere in due process."

And Crispin Blunt, a Conservative MP and the chairman of the Commons foreign affairs committee, told MEE: "What we cannot have is Israel acting in the UK with the same impunity it enjoys in Palestine.

"This is clearly interference in another country's politics of the murkiest and most discreditable kind."

The Israeli embassy said Mark Regev, the Israeli ambassador, had spoken to Duncan to apologise and made clear that Masot's remarks were "completely unacceptable".

Maria Strizzolo, the British civil servant caught discussing the "take down" with Masot, resigned on Sunday.

In the tapes, Masot, who in an online profile deactivated on Saturday described Niccolo Machiavelli as his "God", asked Strizzolo: "Can I give you some MPs that you can take down?"

Strizzolo, who recently moved to a position in the education department, replied: "Well you know, if you look hard enough I'm sure that there is something they are trying to hide."

Masot said: "Yeah, I have some MPs."

Strizzolo said: "Let’s talk about it."

Masot then told the reporter: "No, she knows which MPs I want to take down."

Shai Masot: Israeli Machiavelli caught in the act

Strizzolo replied that it would be good to remind her, and Masot then said: "The deputy foreign minister."

This did not come as a surprise to Strizzolo, who replied: "You still want to go for it?"

Masot said: "No, he's doing a lot of problems."

In a statement on Saturday, Strizzolo said: “The implications the Guardian is seeking to draw from a few out-of-context snippets of a conversation, obtained by subterfuge, over a social dinner are absurd.

“The context of the conversation was light, tongue-in-cheek and gossipy. Any suggestion that I, as a civil servant working in education, could ever exert the type of influence you are suggesting is risible.

"Shai Masot is someone I know purely socially and as a friend. He is not someone with whom I have ever worked or had any political dealings beyond chatting about politics, as millions of people do, in a social context."
