Vox Political: Supporting Cobynite Victim of Yet Another Blairite Smear

Mike over at Vox Political has written a piece in support of Steve Topple, an investigative journalist at The Canary, who embarrassed and angered the Blairites by uncovering details about the ChickenCoup.

This has obviously really wound up Blair’s bug-eyed followers, who have now done the usual, and accused him of anti-Semitism, based on a months-old tweet he sent sending up the Dirty Digger. The aged destroyer of everything good and decent in culture and media across four continents had posed the following Islamophobic tweet.

Maybe most Moslems peaceful but until they recognise and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.

It’s a nasty, Islamophobic slur. it ignores the fact that very many Muslim organisations have issued condemnations of suicide bombing and terrorism, including several of the world’s largest Muslim organisations. It also ignores the fact that the vast majority of those killed by psychopaths and butchers like ISIS and al-Qaeda have been Muslims.

To show how nasty and grossly slanderous this comment is, Topple posted the following satirical tweet:

Maybe most Jews peaceful, but until they recognise and destroy their growing Zionist cancer, they must be held responsible.

It’s very obviously satire, but not to the Blairites, who have decided to smear their critics wholesale with accusations of anti-Semitism, and seem to believe that any criticism of Israel or Zionism is automatically anti-Semitic. Even when it’s correct, as Ken Livingstone’s comments about the Zionists and the Nazis were. And the founders of the state of Israel held deeply disgusting views on European and Arab Jews. I’ve blogged about an article by Lobster’s John Newsinger, which describes just how vile Chaim Weizmann’s and David Ben Gurion’s views were towards Jews, who wished to remain in their traditional European homelands. They were quite happy for the Nazis to make conditions as hard as possible for German Jews, as they hoped this would encourage more of them to emigrate to Palestine. One of the two said that if all European Jews could be saved by going to Britain, and only half saved from the Nazis by going to Israel, they would prefer only half to be saved. As for the Mizrahim, Jews from the surrounding Arab countries, Ben Gurion described them as ‘human dust’, and a ‘rabble’. They were kept segregated from the rest of the Israeli population in their own schools and settlements, and given the worst jobs. There were even debates amongst the leaders of Israeli society whether they were mentally retarded or just culturally inferior. The evidence for all of this comes not from anti-Semites or anti-Zionists, but from the encyclopaedic work of David Cesarani, a pro-Zionist Jewish historian of Israel and the Holocaust.

Topple and the Canary make it plain that they are not anti-Semites and won’t tolerate anti-Semitism. Mike in his article makes it very clear that he supports them, and their absolute condemnation of anti-Semitism. And I add my voice to theirs in support of them in this issue too.

These allegations are not just gross personal smears in themselves. They are also a deliberate attempt to falsify history, distort and corrupt genuine political debate. And they cheapen the real anti-Semitism, which is on the rise now that the NF, BNP and associated right-wing idiots have thrown of the pretence of standing for community politics and fitting in with the political mainstream.
