It seems to me that anyone who criticises Israel, and its hardline policies, is accused of Anti-Semitic views. It seems to me that there are valid criticisms to be levelled at Israel and that criticising certain policies and actions cannot be anti-Semitic.
What is needed in the Middle East is a solution to the Palestinian situation, the recognition of Israel, the formation of a Palestinian State, the end of all threats and violence and reparation for those harmed.
Jeremy Corbyn has been active in trying to find a solution to the problem. To that end he has met with people from all sides just as the British government met with the IRA during the troubles. I would support sharing platforms with dubious people in the search for a lasting peace. That is not anti-Semitic.
Jeremy Corbyn is the least likely racist or anti-Semite I can imagine.
I heard the interview with Ken Livingston which has caused such controversy and saw nothing wrong with it. He claimed that Hitler was a Zionist in that he was after shipping the Jews to a nation in the Middle East before turning to an even worse policy of extermination. He did not suggest Hitler was right to do this or support Hitler’s insane anti-Semitic views. The Haavara agreement of 1933, where Hitler negotiated with Zionist Jews, seems to support Ken Livingston’s statement. What is anti-Semitic about that?
It seems to me that all this is a storm in a tea-cup and an excuse by Corbyn opponents and right-wingers to try to undermine him.
Perhaps someone could explain to me where I am wrong?
