Chief rabbi Ephraim Mirvis has not only misrepresented the known facts about Labour and its supposed antisemitism crisis. He has not only interfered in an overtly, politically partisan manner in the December 12 election campaign by suggesting that Jeremy Corbyn – against all evidence – is an antisemite.

By speaking out as the voice of British Jews – a false claim he has allowed the UK media to promote – his unprecedented meddling in the election of Britain’s next leader has actually made the wider Jewish community in the UK much less safe. Mirvis is contributing to the very antisemitism he says he wants to eradicate.

Mirvis’ intervention in the election campaign makes sense only if he believes in one of two highly improbable scenarios.

The first requires several demonstrably untrue things to be true. It needs for Corbyn to be a proven antisemite – and not just of the variety that occasionally or accidentally lets slip an antisemitic trope or is susceptible to the unthinking prejudice most of us occasionally display, including (as we shall see) Rabbi Mirvis.

No, for Mirvis to have interfered in the election campaign he would need to believe that Corbyn intends actively as prime minister to inflame a wider antisemitism in British society or implement policies designed to harm the Jewish community. And in addition, the chief rabbi would have to believe that Corbyn presides over a Labour party that will willingly indulge race-hate speeches or stand by impassively as Corbyn carries out racist policies.

If Mirvis really believes any of that, I have a bridge to sell him. Corbyn has spent his entire political career as an anti-racism campaigner, and his anti-racism activism as a backbencher was especially prominent inside a party that itself has traditionally taken the political lead in tackling racism.

Rising tide of nationalism

The second possibility is that Mirvis doesn’t really believe that Corbyn is a Goebbels in the making. But if that is so, then his decision to intercede in the election campaign to influence British voters must be based on an equally fanciful notion: that there is no significant threat posed by antisemitism from the right or the rapidly emerging far right.

Because if antisemitism is not an issue on the right – the same nationalistic right that has persecuted Jews throughout modern history, culminating in the Nazi atrocities – then Mirvis may feel he can risk playing politics in the name of the Jewish community without serious consequence.

If there is no perceptible populist tide of white nationalism sweeping Europe and the globe, one that hates immigrants and minorities, then making a fuss about Corbyn might seem to make sense for a prominent Jewish community leader. In those circumstances, it might appear to be worth disrupting the national conversation to highlight the fact that Corbyn once sat with Hamas politicians – just as Tony Blair once sat with Sinn Fein leaders – and that Corbyn’s party has promised in the latest manifesto to stop selling weapons to Israel (and Saudi Arabia) of the kind that have been used to butcher children in Gaza. Mirvis might believe that by wounding Corbyn he can help into power a supposedly benevolent, or at least inoffensive, Tory party.

But if he is wrong about the re-emergence of a white nationalism and its growing entry into the mainstream – and all the evidence suggests he would be deeply wrong, if this is what he thinks – then undermining Corbyn and the Labour party is self-destructiveness of the first order.

It would amount to self-harm not only because attacking Corbyn inevitably strengthens the electoral chances of Boris “watermelon smiles” Johnson. It plays with fire because Mirvis’ flagrant intervention in the election campaign actually bolsters a key part of the antisemitic discourse of the far right that is rapidly making inroads into the Conservative party.

Succour to white nationalists

White nationalists are all over social media warning of supposed Jewish global conspiracies, of supposed Jewish control of the media, of supposed Jewish subversion of “white rights”. It was precisely this kind of thinking that drove European politics a century ago. It was arch-antisemite Arthur Balfour who signed off the Balfour Declaration of 1917 that sought to end Britain’s “Jewish problem” by encouraging European Jews to move far away, to a part of the Middle East then known as Palestine.

That is, of course, why today’s white supremacists love Israel, why they see it as a model, why they call themselves “white Zionists”. In creating a tribal democracy, and one heavily fortified, land hungry, belligerent and nuclear-armed, Israel has done for Jews exactly what white nationalists hope to do again for their white compatriots. The white supremacists’ love of Israel is intimately bound up with their hatred and fear of Jews.

Mirvis has given succour to white nationalist discourse both because he has spoken out against Corbyn without offering evidence for his claims and because those entirely unsubstantiated claims have been echoed across the media.

There is good reason why the billionaire-owned print media and the Establishment-dominated BBC are happy to exploit the antisemitism smears – and it has nothing to do with concern for the safety of Jews. The corporate media don’t want a Labour leader in power who is going to roll back the corporate free-for-all unleashed by Margaret Thatcher 40 years ago that nearly bankrupted the rest of us in 2008.

But that is not what those flirting with or embracing white nationalism will take away from the relentless media chorus over evidence-free antisemitism claims.

ORDER IT NOW

Mirvis’ intervention in the democratic process will drive them more quickly and more deeply into the arms of the far-right. It will persuade them once again that “the Jews” are a “problem”. They will conclude that – though the Jews are now helping the right by destroying Corbyn – once the left has been dealt with, those same Jews will then subvert their white state. Like Balfour before them, they will start thinking of how to rid Britain and Europe of these supposed interlopers.

This is why Mirvis was irresponsible in the extreme for meddling. Because the standard of proof required before making such an intervention – proof either that Cobyn is an outright Jew hater, or that white nationalism is no threat to the UK – is not even close to being met.

The left’s anti-imperialism

In fact much worse, all the evidence shows the exact reverse. That was neatly summed up in a survey this month published by The Economist, a weekly magazine that is no friend to Corbyn or the Labour party.

It showed that those identifying as “very left-wing” – the section of the public that supports Corbyn – were among the least likely to express antisemitic attitudes. Those identifying as “very right-wing”, on the other hand – those likely to support Boris “piccaninnies” Johnson – were three and a half times more likely to express hostile attitudes towards Jews. Other surveys show even worse racism among Conservatives towards more obviously non-white minorities, such as Muslims and black people. That, after all, is the very reason Boris “letterbox-looking Muslim women” Johnson now heads the Tory party.

The Economist findings reveal something else of relevance in assessing Mirvis’ meddling. Not only is the real left (as distinguished from the phoney, centrist left represented by Labour’s Blairites) much less antisemitic than the right, it is also much more critical of Israel than any other section of the British public.

That is easily explained. The real left has always been anti-imperialist. Israel is a particularly problematic part of Britain’s colonial legacy.

Elsewhere, the peoples who gained independence from Britain found themselves inside ruined, impoverished states, often with borders imposed out of naked imperial interest that left them divided and feuding. Internal struggles over the crumbs Britain and other imperial powers left behind were the norm.

But in a very real sense, Britain – or at least the west – never really left Israel. In line with the Balfour Declaration, Britain helped to establish the institutions of a “Jewish home” on the Palestinians’ homeland. British troops may have departed in 1948, but waves of European Jewish immigrants were either encouraged or compelled to come to the newly created state of Israel by racist immigration quotas designed to prevent them fleeing elsewhere, most especially to the United States.

The west helped engineer both the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and Israel’s creation to solve Europe’s “Jewish problem”. It provided the components necessary for Israel to build a nuclear bomb that won it a place at the international top table and ensured the Palestinians were made Israel’s serfs in perpetuity. Ever since, the west has provided Israel with diplomatic cover, military aid and special trading status, even as Israel has worked relentlessly to disappear the Palestinian people from their homeland.

Even now, our most prized rights, such as free speech, are being eroded and subverted to protect Israel from criticism. In the US, the only infringements on the American public’s First Amendment rights have been legislated to silence those seeking to pressure Israel over its crimes against the Palestinians with a boycott – similar to the campaign against apartheid South Africa. In the UK, the Conservative manifesto similarly promises to bar local councils from upholding international law and boycotting products from Israel’s illegal settlements.

Rewarding war crimes

The real left focuses on this continuing colonial crime against the Palestinians not because it is antisemitic (a claim the Economist survey amply refutes), but because the left treats Israel as emblematic of British and western bad faith and hypocrisy. Israel is the imperial west’s Achilles’ heel, the proof that war crimes, massacres and ethnic cleansing are not only not punished but actively rewarded if these crimes accord with western imperial interests.

But ardent friends of Israel such as Mirvis are blind to these arguments. For them, one western antisemitic crime – the Holocaust – entirely obscures another western antisemitic crime: seeking to rid Europe of Jews by forcing them into the Middle East, serving as pawns on an imperial chessboard that paid no regard to the Palestinians whose homeland was being sacrificed.

In his state of historical and political myopia, Mirvis cannot begin to understand that there might be political activists who, in defending the Palestinian people, are also defending Jews. That they, unlike him, understand that Israel was created not out of western benevolence towards Jews, but out of western malevolence towards “lesser peoples”. The real left in Britain speaks out against Israel not because it hates Jews but because it holds dear a commitment to justice and a compassion for all.

Mirvis, on the other hand, is the Zionist equivalent of a little Englander. He prefers particularist, short-term interests over universalist, long-term ones.

It was he, remember, who threw his full support behind Israel in 2014 as it indiscriminately bombed Gaza, killing some 550 children – a bombing campaign that came after years of an Israeli blockade on the Palestinian population there. That siege has led the United Nations to warn that the enclave will be uninhabitable by next year.

It was Mirvis, along with his predecessor Jonathan Sacks, who in 2017 endorsed the fanatical Jewish settlers – Israel’s equivalent of white supremacists – on their annual march through the occupied Old City of Jerusalem. This is the march where the majority of the participants are recorded every year waving masses of Israeli flags at Palestinians and chanting “Death to the Arabs”. One Israeli newspaper columnist has described the Jerusalem Day march as a “religious carnival of hatred”.

It was Mirvis and Sacks that encouraged British Jews to join them on this tub-thumping trip to Israel, which they suggested would provide an opportunity to spend time “dancing with our brave soldiers”. Those soldiers – Israeli, not British – occupy West Bank cities like Hebron where they have locked down life for some 200,000 Palestinians so that a handful of crazed religious Jewish bigots can live undisturbed in their midst.

ORDER IT NOW

What is so appalling is that Mirvis is blind to the very obvious parallels between the fearful Palestinians who hastily have to board up their shops as a Jewish mob parades through their neighbourhood and today’s white supremacists and neo-Nazis in the west who seek to march provocatively through ethnic minority communities, including Jewish neighbourhoods, in places like Charlottesville.

Mirvis has no lessons to teach Corbyn or the Labour party about racism. In fact, it is his own, small-minded prejudice that blinds him to the anti-racist politics of the left. His ugly message is now being loudly amplified by a corporate media keen to use any weapon it can, antisemitism included, to keep Corbyn and the left out of power – and preserve a status quo that benefits the few at the expense of the many.

  1. Chief Rabbi Mirvis attitude somewhat recalls Dr Joachim Prinz, a Zionist Jew and the leader of Germany’s Jewish community, who in 1934 published Wir Juden, a book hailing the ascendency of Hitler’s Nazi Party as an outcome that was good for Jews, ending their drift toward assimilation and intermarriage. (What goes around comes around.)

    Just goes to show how Jewed Britain is, that the so called “Chief Rabbi” has become the most important commentator on a British general election, and the Tories and much of the media in Britain absolutely love it.

    Not even America is that Jewed that they would let a Rabbi blatantly interfere with a presidential election. It’s incredible how a British general election has literally become about Jews, I’ve never seen anything like it in any other country. The media is so obsessed with what Jews think anyone would think Corbyn was running to be PM of Israel!

    I’m not surprised by your lies about Charlottesville. The pro-statue demonstrators came for a peaceful protest, but they were denied that due to the violence engineered by local and Commonwealth of Virginia authorities in collusion with Antifa. Incredibly, you can actually read the true story in the official Heaphy Report, which the authorities no doubt assumed no one would pay attention to if it went against the pre-existing narrative. And they were right.

    Brexit will never happen, it has no support outside of an increasingly small segment of the British population. The EU is not exactly popular in Europe, but the rest of Europe has absolutely no desire to be drawn into the sphere of influence of a Britain outside of the EU (but part of the US Empire).

    Most foreigners find the claim that the British are victims of the EU laughable, as in most countries Britain is regarded as an oppressor not a victim. Any big shift in international relations, like Brexit would be, requires a considerable amount of support internationally to be achievable, and in the case of Brexit that support just isn’t there. Brexit is really a non-starter in my opinion and I say that as someone who does support Brexit in theory.

    Correct. Animal rights activists in the Labour Party plan to introduce legislation requiring that meat from kosher and Halal killed animals be labeled as “non-stunned.” As some of you may know, only the forequarter of ritually slaughtered animals is considered to be kosher. The hind quarter finds its way into the regular meat supply.

    It is assumed that many shoppers after seeing the label “non-stunned” on a package in the display case will avoid buying the product. If that is the case, kosher slaughter will become unprofitable depriving religious Jews of nourishment.

    In the USA, Jewish organization fight tooth and nail to preserve kosher slaughter and to prevent the labeling of such meat as “non-stunned.”

    Preventing the Labour Party from taking power will preserve the status quo. This is perhaps the main reason why Rabbi Mirvis has undertaken a smear campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.

    The fat rabbi is an agent of a foreign entity interfering in the affairs of British state and yet allowed to rant and bark frothing in the mouth endlessly accusing anyone opposing his racist Judenland as being “anti Semitic , he dares and allowed to do so while his criminal thugs have been murdering the real Semitic people, Palestinians, for the last 70 years.
    These are real bad times for Britain and the Brits when a low life Jewish Mulla is allowed to interfere in the states electoral and political process and mainly as a weapon to destroy Corbyn.

    Jonathan Cook has the typical British self hating lefty view despite his personal experience of Zionism on the West Bank. British rule in Palestine applied extreme measures reluctantly against its inhabitants to pacify the territory. Zionism has taken British emergency regulations and applies them gratuitously as the normal environment to further its expansionism.

Every time I feel like apologizing on Unz for some of the rash, unkind overgeneralizations I’ve made about Jews in my comments on this website, I come up against yet another example of outrageous Jewish mischaracterization of actually quite moderate persons such as myself wherein I am equated with jack-booted storm troops kicking in people’s doors in the middle of the night.

    Jew people, c’mon, Americans are not incipient Nazis. Most of us fled the old world for the same reasons you did. Either we weren’t wanted or there were no resources for us. We cling to a lingering mistrust of Old Europe just as you do. In conflating us with your ancient foes you show yourself to be behind the times at best and just plain ignorant at worst.

    Ok, I am sorry that you don’t like the fact that we “white nationalists” got moralized by this, but you are seeing now that we have truthful insight into some stuff, right? If we have some decent insight, isn’t that something? Maybe our perspective is worth hearing out, for a short bit of your life; maybe it is the source of our insight.

    “They will conclude that – though the Jews are now helping the right by destroying Corbyn – once the left has been dealt with, those same Jews will then subvert their white state.”

    I don’t know about the left-right discourse…I am not so worried about the political parties of the West.

    But I mean, assuming the British Right creates a white state or something, would the Jays subvert it, though? I’m sorry that you don’t like nasty language like “subvert,” and fume at our distrust in the gentility of victim-groupies, but the revealed truth of our world is that the great majority of Jewish people prefer “World Without Borders” to “Western Civilization,” and if you have a lot of them in your country, they will be promoting that. Is this true or is it not? Come on!

    “British troops may have departed in 1948, but waves of European Jewish immigrants were either encouraged or compelled to come to the newly created state of Israel by racist immigration quotas designed to prevent them fleeing elsewhere, most especially to the United States.”

    Please provide evidence that the “design” of Western immigration policies was to force Jews into Israel. The claim of “design” implies intent. How did the Americans in 1924 intend for this outcome, 20 years in the future? I might be missing something, but I am not buying this.

    “Because the standard of proof required before making such an intervention…is not even close to being met.”

    This guy doesn’t seem to have much better “standards of proof” than the Rabbi he criticizing, to be honest.

    From where I sit, most WNs point to the Balfour Declaration as proof to Jewish power. It isn’t something to be praised but instead capitulation by those in power to the Jews. 20th century racialists often warned against the British giving Palestine over because it would turn the arabs against them. Well it seems that these evil White Supremecists seemed to be right about that.

    As for “White Zionists” it is a term I’ve never heard before. While I think most people may agree that Racial orientated policies are good for stability, putting you ethnostate in the middle of Palestine backed up by the force of the US and the UK is not a smart idea. In fact it invalidates your state because it comes at the oppression of others, and someone may eventually do it to you. A better policy of sovereignty would be ‘live and let live’ in that your people go one way and let others go theres. But this is never going to function in the dynamic that is Palestine.

    So I completely disagree. How can anyone have a logical position in that they want their own racial state, but they support a state that invades and dispossess the local population? That’s just inviting that to be done to you. As Suketa Mehta says “We came here because you came there” and so to be free from hordes of immigrants, one must leave them alone.

    That’s not the long game.
    The same antisemitism campaign was waged against Corbyn in the run up to the 2017 General Election, and the result was Labor picking up 30 Seats and the Tories losing their majority.
    Labor won heavily jewish Seats in London that they’d never won before.

    It’s a variation of the Tar Baby fable.
    Once Corbyn wins, as he surely will, the antisemitism campaign will go into overdrive and he’ll be blasted out and replaced by another Tony Blair.

    Corbyn and cohorts can’t upset halal voters just to appease Guardianista middle class degenerates. This is the same reason they would rather avoid talking about Pakistani pimps preying on English girls. Already Third Worlders are pushing for LGBT education exemptions.

    The smear is all about Palestinians. ‘Antisemitism’ here is just code for criticism of Israeli barbarism and calling for BDS because of products derived from settlements in the West Bank.

    The 0.4% also want a shabbos goy like the Scottish warmonger and now the Turk who did aliyah, worked on a kibbutz and prayed at the Wailing Wall.

    I think I heard in a reportage in radio years ago something that means that the first assertion above at least isn’t entirely true. I heard that UN representants visited camps in Europe where Jews were in order to ask people where they wanted to go and settle. According to this reportage, those UN representants were deceived by Zionists who took them to some people ready to say that they (all) wanted to go to Israel, even if this wasn’t true – most people didn’t want to go to The Country. Zionists must have known that the creation of The Country wasn’t that far away and that they needed people in order to take the land from the Palestinians. A few years before, even after a first wave of immigration, they weren’t more than 10% of the population or much more than that. But they thought in the long term. Just like the occupation of the West Bank was planed already years before the attack of 1967.

    The other point also doesn’t seem to be completely right. I don’t know very much about it, but as far as I know France may indeed have helped in this enterprise. But the US didn’t and material necessary for it had to be stolen and the president who may have been against the project was politely asked not to put his nose in business which had nothing to do with him.

    All together I think that J. C. underestimates the power of the organised community to influence and control the outcomes that they wanted. It’s not true that everything had to do with Western imperialism.

    Sooner or later nations will perceive that their self interest is not best served by open borders and unrestricted world trade. War will break out. Then leading Jewish thinkers will piously lecture about how if only humanity had listened to them, had been trusting enough, had not retreated into ethnocentric nationalism….Well, they tried to tell us. they lectured us that unrestricted free trade ultimately benefitted everyone in spite of some immediate, short term sacrifices but we were too stupid and selfish to understand.

    See how easy it is to be right? All you need do is tell people that they should behave like the Buddha himself and you can sit back in smug self satisfaction when they fail and say “I told you so.” This is one of the Jew’s favorite tricks. “See humanity, if you had only behaved like we told you then all the bad stuff you suffer wouldn’t have happened. We know better because we practice Tikkun Olam, so of course we are not responsible for any of the current mess.”

    Not only is the real left (as distinguished from the phoney, centrist left represented by Labour’s Blairites) much less antisemitic than the right, it is also much more critical of Israel than any other section of the British public.

    Too bad Corbyn’s Labour Party went and signed the IHRA, which equates anti-zionism with anti-semitism: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Holocaust_Remembrance_Alliance

    Israel is a particularly problematic part of Britain’s colonial legacy.

    So stop being a f*cking colony of Israel!

    In his state of historical and political myopia, Mirvis cannot begin to understand that there might be political activists who, in defending the Palestinian people, are also defending Jews.

    Because for liberal, globalist, ‘anti-zionist’ Jews, that’s what this is really about here: not defending the Palestinians, but defending the reputation of the Jews. Israel and the Zios are just getting too damned embarrassing, aren’t they! Any more of their murderous antics on the West Bank, and we goyishe cattle just might start asking why ‘our’ governments keep subsidizing them.

    This all dovetails so nicely with Cook’s theory–also a fave of the antifa–that Zionism was just another goyishe plot foisted on all those innocent Jews in order to make them look bad. You know, all those ‘Christian Zionists’, like Theodor Herzl, Max Nordau and Lord Rothschild. And remember that time the Royal Army attacked the Stern Gang while they were busy fighting the Germans? Christian perfidy at its worst!

    Mirvis, on the other hand, is the Zionist equivalent of a little Englander. He prefers particularist, short-term interests over universalist, long-term ones.

    It seems to me that modern lefties have completely distorted the true and original meaning of the term “Little Englander,” which, as I understand it, was once applied to those who opposed British imperialism. What’s so bad about being an anti-imperialist, Jonathan?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Englander

    Another pet-peeve (and one that hits a little closer to home) is when modern lefties try to imply that the America-Firsters of the 1930s were ‘belligerent nationalists’ or some such inanity. In reality, they represented a huge segment of the US population that wanted to keep our country out of war.

    … today’s white supremacists and neo-Nazis in the west who seek to march provocatively through ethnic minority communities, including Jewish neighbourhoods, in places like Charlottesville.

    Huh? Are you sure you’re not thinking of Skokie, Illinois in the 70s, maybe? I don’t think C-ville is terribly Jewish.

  32. “The second possibility is that Mirvis doesn’t really believe that Corbyn is a Goebbels in the making.”

    A third possibility is that he doesn’t care about Corbyn at all, and is simply making him the object of wrath in order to make a ridiculous point that doesn’t need to be made. That is a monstrous thing to do and only a monster would even think of doing it.

  33. “Goebbels … Nazi atrocities” ???? Propaganda.

    White nationalists are all over social media warning of supposed Jewish global conspiracies, of supposed Jewish control of the media, of supposed Jewish subversion of “white rights”

    Next your going to tell us that Jews don’t control the media, the banks, the school departments, the trans movement, and Parliament. And they don’t divide and subvert every other nationality. Bullocks to you, Mr. Cook.

    Is it really a crime for a white man to espouse love for his country and race, like jews do for Israel and Judaism. Or are you afraid of something?
    Maybe what’s needed is someone to bring all your dreams true.

    Mr. Cook I’m guessing you are a jew or crypto jew, who loves what’s happening.

    Let’s examine a few of the claims made here.

    ”(the Chief Rabbi) has actually made the wider Jewish community in the UK much less safe”

    How exactly? And how is this any different from the Rabbi’s own hysterical rhetoric? Jews have their own police force and their own Community Security Trust funded by us the tax payer. Who else in Britain has such privileges?

    “Corbyn has spent his entire political career as an anti-racism campaigner, and his anti-racism activism as a backbencher was especially prominent inside a party that itself has traditionally taken the political lead in tackling racism.”

    No, not really. He’s been a particular kind of ‘anti racism’ campaigner – the type which is aghast at all forms of racism except against white Britons. After hundreds of racist attacks on white lads in Oldham in the late 90s and early 00s, a protest was held by the BNP at the NUJ’s head office. It was met by a counter-protest by the SWP, attended by none other than Jeremy Corbyn. They claimed of course that the BNP were exploiting these attacks. Except they had no answer as to why the SWP were not organising against these racist attacks themselves and why they pressed the media to not report on them. Indeed, these same ‘anti racists’ went on to claim that the mass rape of tens of thousands of white girls and hundreds of Sikh girls by Muslim men who held openly racist attitudes were… wait for it… ‘racist myths’. In other words, they helped create the institutional (non)response to mass child abuse.

    “that there is no significant threat posed by antisemitism from the right or the rapidly emerging far right.

    If there is no perceptible populist tide of white nationalism sweeping Europe and the globe, one that hates immigrants and minorities,”

    As far as I can see, what Jonathan means is no one is allowed to criticise Jews except him and on his terms alone. Europeans aren’t allowed to ask why ALL the Jewish organisations have supported open borders, multiculturalism and hate speech laws.

    I don’t hate anyone. I have a right to ask why I’m being made in a minority in my country. You talk of ‘minorities’ yet you afford no such respect to the majority who were never asked about any of this and who’ve faced a relentless psychological barrage to get them to shut up about opposing any of it.

    “White nationalists are all over social media warning of supposed Jewish global conspiracies, of supposed Jewish control of the media, of supposed Jewish subversion of “white rights”.”

    I think you’ll find articles by Jews boasting of their control of the media and Hollywood and you’ll find the ADL at the forefront of the campaign to close down free speech. As for ‘white rights’ in inverted commas, I’ll come back to that later.

    “It was precisely this kind of thinking that drove European politics a century ago.”

    You mean people reacted against Jewish behaviour back then? How dare they, eh? It’s ok for you to rail against Europeans but we can’t say a thing about you.

    “It was arch-antisemite Arthur Balfour who signed off the Balfour Declaration of 1917 that sought to end Britain’s “Jewish problem” by encouraging European Jews to move far away, to a part of the Middle East then known as Palestine.”

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Extremely powerful Zionists (which yes, included the Rothschilds) lobbied for decades to get the British to agree to what was eventually promised by Balfour. Would it really be a surprise that a people or government sought to rid themselves of a problem which the LEFT wing idol Marx himself called ”the Jewish Question”?

    “That is, of course, why today’s white supremacists love Israel…The white supremacists’ love of Israel is intimately bound up with their hatred and fear of Jews.”

    Some do, some don’t. Some hate the Jews who have attacked their ethnic interests, others just want to be left alone. Please stop projecting, it’s bad for you.

    “It will persuade them once again that “the Jews” are a “problem”.”

    It will persuade some people that the major Jewish organisations are a problem and they’d be right to think that.

    “or that white nationalism is no threat to the UK”

    Because it isn’t and never has been. Might I remind you that according to all the available research, we are very low in ethnocentricity and that we actually rejected the BUF / Mosely and then went on to fight Hitler? I mean, this really is some thanks for that.

    “Other surveys show even worse racism among Conservatives towards more obviously non-white minorities, such as Muslims and black people.”

    Note how Conservatives here is taken to mean white people only. No mention of the fact that Jews overwhelmingly vote Tory now as do Hindus and large numbers of Sikhs. But hey, just imagine if those groups had noticed the epic crime rates owing to blacks and Muslims. How dare they notice such patterns? How dare Sikhs, whose religion was founded in response to Islam, be aggrieved that their girls are raped by Muslims. How dare white Britons wonder how on earth all this ethnic conflict was brought to their once homogeneous land.

    “but waves of European Jewish immigrants were either encouraged or compelled to come to the newly created state of Israel by racist immigration quotas designed to prevent them fleeing elsewhere, most especially to the United States.”

    My God… Zionists WANTED Jews to go to Israel and Jewish leaders in the US helped them make it happen but hey! It’s still whitey’s fault.

    “The west helped engineer both the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and Israel’s creation to solve Europe’s “Jewish problem”. It provided the components necessary for Israel to build a nuclear bomb that won it a place at the international top table and ensured the Palestinians were made Israel’s serfs in perpetuity. Ever since, the west has provided Israel with diplomatic cover, military aid and special trading status, even as Israel has worked relentlessly to disappear the Palestinian people from their homeland.”

    Extremely wealthy Zionists wanted this and Western politicians gave it to them. At the top level, they worked together. Stop passing the buck.

    Now, here’s the really juicy bit: Palestinians and their homeland.

    Do I, a native Briton, have a homeland, Jonathan? And if not, why not? And why have Jewish organisations relentlessly sought to change my homeland? Do you recognise the commonalities that I have with Palestinians?

    “In the UK, the Conservative manifesto similarly promises to bar local councils from upholding international law and boycotting products from Israel’s illegal settlements.”

    David Cameron once called the Tories ‘the Torah party’. Do you think that might have some connection with the anti BDS movement?

    “But ardent friends of Israel such as Mirvis are blind to these arguments. For them, one western antisemitic crime – the Holocaust – entirely obscures another western antisemitic crime: seeking to rid Europe of Jews by forcing them into the Middle East, serving as pawns on an imperial chessboard that paid no regard to the Palestinians whose homeland was being sacrificed.”

    The self pity is truly monstrous. Has it ever occurred to you that if you keep finding yourselves in trouble, maybe it’s you that is the problem?

    “The real left in Britain speaks out against Israel not because it hates Jews but because it holds dear a commitment to justice and a compassion for all.”

    Yeah, like the tens of thousands of white girls and hundreds of Sikh girls ‘the real Left’ left at the mercy of rapists and torturers in Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford, Telford, Newcastle and all the other places. Like the countless Muslim girls it allows to be destroyed via FGM all so the bloc votes keep rolling in.

    Truly the most moral of people!!

    You really need to get over this monstrous ego that you have and try finding a bit of dignity.

    My reading comprehension is generally good to very good, but I lost the main point of this article about one third of the way through and it was never to be seen again. Its obvious that the actual point isn’t what the title states that it is: concern for Jews due to Rabbinical assistance of antisemitism. So, the reader is left to fend for himself between the lines.

    Beyond that issue, which could have been solved with the central thesis’s clear statement / restatement and in spite of any other editing flaws, the article seems to take a dizzying route of multi-topic over-analysis to arrive at what I can only guess was its point. Or at least to flirt with the only point that matters much.

    What I believe that the central thesis was, or should have been, is better stated with many fewer words. I would wager that I can still arrive at it with greater accuracy:

    The point of the antisemitism charge against the popular Left / its Labor leader is to keep it in line with Jew support that finds itself getting thinner at the popular Left’s far political pole that it currently shows signs of drifting toward. The Left is easily corralled away from the far Left pole with an antisemitism charge, and back to giving political service to Jews. Even in spite of the popular Left’s sometimes better knowledge and moral intuition (but not in spite of career risk), and so this works well.

    This is important for Jews because other than the support from the popular Left (which is also the nominal popular Center), the only other substantial Jew support comes from a relatively small group of American Christian Zionists.

    Other than the continued importance highlighting Jewish manipulation of Western elections (and politics in general) for the benefit of a foreign country, the rest of the article is (convoluted) supporting detail or conjecture.

    The Guardian isn’t a leftist newspaper. More or less only one decidedly leftist remained in The Guardian, George Monbiot, but he doesn’t seem to have any influence in the newspaper and he doesn’t write about such themes.

    If by leftist you mean following old-line Stalinist ideology, you might be correct, but that’s a pretty narrow definition. Look at any issue of the Guardian and you’ll be greeted by the standard SJW biases — immigrants and POCs good, whites bad, women oppressed, gays good, transsexuals heroically nonbinary, etc., etc.

    Mirvis is contributing to the very antisemitism he says he wants to eradicate.

    That’s the purpose of Mirvis lecturing his British sheep, to keep pounding away at how England is filled with anti-Semites, until the supine Brits dare say something in their defense, then the rabid Rabbi’s friends in the MSM will trumpet that as proof that anti-Semitism does exist and must be stamped out, naturally, according to the Rabbi’s rules.

    The Godfather of Zionism, Theodore Herzl, told his disciples to encourage anti-Semitism, since that can be used to help Jews steal Palestine and remain above the Goyim laws.
    That sordid tactic worked then and still works now.

    Anytime there’s a lull in anti-Semitic incidents, some mysteriously pop-up, usually involving the spry paining of Swastikas on some Jew building or grave stones, which the MSM will pretend it’s the return of Hitler, so gibs the Jews more money for security, and more power over what us Goyim can say.

    Wanna make the farm animals stop bleating? Just hint that the Goyim are anti-Semitic or G-d forbid, holocaust deniers and whatever truth-seeker had stood up, is violently slapped down.

    American Jews have AIPAC. Nuff said.

    Zionism is cut from the same cloth as Nazism and Bolshevism, and cut by the same hand – the Anglo-American banking establishment. Insider Anthony C. Sutton has documented this quite well, as has Bill Clinton mentor Carroll Quigley. Zionism is really a bizarre parody of Nazism, right down to the tribal “master race” fantasy, the concentration camps, and the internal, hated, ethnic “other.” Israel was created with an alliance between Nazis and self-hating, atheist, Zionist Jews – Nazi troop ships brought whole Jewish factories and villages to Palestine before the war. They betrayed the observant Jews of Europe. But yes, Mossad works with the CIA to do these false flags. They also fund and run ISIS with the Paedo-gon. Wahabists in Saudia Arabia are in league with them, because they wish to wipe out all other sects of Islam. Israel is left alone, you’ll notice. ISIS never even mentions them. Likewise, they never attack oil rich nations allied with the USA. Only those oil-rich nations that have their own financial system, that stand apart from – the banking establishment. The first thing they did in Libya was to airlift out the gold reserves, and install a Rothschild central bank.

    The Zionist West created Israeli Secret Intelligence Service ISIS to demonize Islam and Muslims.
    The Zionist West has a history of making mockery of the Creator of Heaven’s and earth.
    These are the same godless people whose ancestor’s have killed messenger’s of God that were sent to remind humanity to live by the Shari’ah TEN Commandments.
    But instead they have deviated by engaging in false flag hoaxes such as 9-11, Boston Marathon, London 7-7-7, Paris false flags.
    The have removed the institution of family and decency by legalizing homosexuality, pornography, gambling, Adultery, fraudulent money and outright criminal wars based on Weapons of Mass Deception.
    And now they got people such as yourselves invoking insults to your Creator without even reflecting what repercussion and wrath it will invite from your maker.
    But ISIS-Israeli Secret Intelligence Service disguised as Islamic state needs to hear this loud and clear: No country’s actions are worse than yours. What you choose to carry out is infinitely more reprehensible – because whenever you do something horrific you have the audacity to invoke God’s name first.

    Irish nationalists are not “white nationalists” they are IRISH nationalists regarding the fate of Ireland…

    Meanwhile, the same Jewish groups that attack all European nationalism as ‘white nationalism’ do so to denigrate the identity of European nations – all while hypocritically claiming that not only do Jews have a right to live wherever they please in the West, advocating for more mass immigration and for Israel… they also claim that any criticism of JEWISH ETHNONATIONALISM (‘Zionism’) as the hatred of Jews.

    How does that work?

Can you name one single “white supremacist” who is saying that Mexico belongs to us because of Manifest Destiny? Is there any one single white person, anywhere in the world, that actually has government power, that is saying “send them back, in body bags”? No, because the white identitarians of America just want their country back, and for the interlopers to go home, where they belong. Now compare that to jews who celebrate when Palestinian children are killed, there is a big difference.

    “The corporate media don’t want a Labour leader in power who is going to roll back the corporate free-for-all unleashed by Margaret Thatcher 40 years ago that nearly bankrupted the rest of us in 2008.”

    We almost went bankrupt in 2008 because the Obama admin mandated that banks now had diversity quotas they needed to fill. Of course that meant under qualified people became eligible, because to have standards would be committing a racism, so the whole world had to pay the price for our “progress”.

    “It will persuade them once again that “the Jews” are a “problem”.”

    Isn’t that what this whole article is about? A jew being a problem for his own tribal gain and failing to see the wider implication?

    “That is easily explained. The real left has always been anti-imperialist. Israel is a particularly problematic part of Britain’s colonial legacy.”

    No it isn’t, its because Isreals kill Palestinian women and children, and then go on to brag about it. Later in the article you have a whole section on Isreals war crimes, but apparently any place in the world that was influenced by Europeans (no matter how long ago) is completely exempt from any current criticism. It seems like you are providing cover, and are desperate to find some way to blame the ME of today on Europeans. You are just so tiresome…

    “Ever since, the west has provided Israel with diplomatic cover, military aid and special trading status, even as Israel has worked relentlessly to disappear the Palestinian people from their homeland.”

    Funny how for over 100 years western leaders have supported jewish homogeneity in a jewish homeland, meanwhile the citizens they rule over get the exact opposite. Did you ever stop and think how that came to be?

    Are you seriously comparing Charlottesville to the way Isreals are slowly genociding the Palestinians?? You have to be a shill to be this willfully disingenuous.

    I have a question; who cares if Corybn is an anti-semite? I mean, is that somehow against some law or moral code? What if I don’t like Saudis because their culture is backwards and for their treatment of Yemen, does that mean I am now ineligible to hold political office? Because I dislike the belligerent way Isreal behaves, am I now some kind of -ist or -ism word that doesn’t deserve to have a voice? How can you complain that a rabbi in the UK is creating anti-semitism with his behavior, then turn around and finger wag like a moralizing church lady, when people express “anti-semetic” opinions??? This rabbi is the one bringing these problems on himself, that’s the entire point of this article, yet apparently the onus is on everyone else to what, not acknowledge this behavior??

  75. the strange thing is that every time loudmouth Jews like Mirvis spout off about their victimhood the poll ratings for Corbyn increase. The fact is the majority of Britons will never meet a Jew in their entire lives and simply couldn’t care less about them, but when reminded of how this predominantly London based group of pushy Isreal-lovers like to laud it over the natives their first reaction is to do the opposite to whatever they’re being ordered to do by them.

    Britain’s Chief Rabbi Is Helping to Stoke Antisemitism

    Our Jews, Frannie and AaronB do the same thing – they create anti-Semites.

    Is it in their DNA and culture, to be so contentious, always attacking people?

    What gives – do Jews want to be held in contempt by humanity or is it all a sophisticated coordinated game of the Stockholm Syndrome?

    The pattern is repetitive across most all Jews from top to bottom – they terrorize folks with guilt, crying victim – demanding that the terrorized feel sorry for them.

    Indeed. When Theresa May was elected PM her first dinner appointment was with the Chief Rabbi.

    When Sarah Palin was chosen as VP by McCain – the very first thing that happened, was that she was cross-examined and interrogated by the Jews.

  82. Oh, if you think it is so outrageous that an English Rabbi is blatantly proselytizing about a British election, go over to Occidental Observer where Dr. Joyce will right now tell you all about how the Church of England has just published a confessional document telling Anglicans that they cannot hold Jews responsible in any metaphysical way for the death of Jesus Christ. In other words, as the Anglicans will have it, Jews are now more or less “saved”.

    British Anglo Saxons – and their American counterparts = taken as a class are a miserable excuse for white people. They have turned the Jews loose on whites in the Anglosphere. How did this ever happen? See the traditionalist Catholic E Michael Jones. OK., he doesn’t get race but he does get ethnicity.

  84. You have enough credit with me Mr Cook for me to read on and finish your article but I pause at your saying, by link, that Athur Balfour was an “arch anti-Semite”. I had entertained some such view from other, vaguer, sources but I no longer do as a result of the careful analysis and exposition of the author of the linked article who does not say Balfour was an anti-Semite (on the contrary) and lays out the truth. He seems to have shared Waizmann’s view that there was a limit to the number of Jews who could be accommodated within a host civilisation.

  85. @fnn

    He’s also referencing the “March in Skokie” from the 1970s when he claims that “neo-Nazis” want to march through “Jewish neighborhoods.”

    No one remember this anymore, but that “neo-Nazi” march was led by a Jew named Frances Cohen. The entire thing was a hoax and it was timed to occur near the opening of the TV series “The Holocaust.” It’s how the Holocaust narrative became well known in America, the Jewish residents of Skokie showed up to “protest” the “neo-Nazis” by holding up signs naming which concentration camp they had been liberated from.

    The entire “neo-Nazi” movement in America is basically fake, going all the way back to George Lincoln Rockwell, an FBI informant whose second-in-command was himself Jewish. Yes, that’s right, America’s most famous “neo-Nazi” publication was written by a Jewish man.

    In the years after 9/11, there were a number of “radical Muslim” groups in New York City that openly supported Osama Bin Laden. The media had a field day interviewing these people. Then, you know, they had to admit they were all Jews who had “converted” to Islam. One even “converted” the day after he returned from his “religious training trip” to Israel.

    At Charlottesville, the media showed a picture, over and over again, of some guy holding a Nazi flag. It was still creased; he had just taken it out of the packaging. They had eight or so people with “Nazi” gear that got off the bus, posed for the cameras, then got back on the bus and went home.

    There’s a reason people call it”fake news.”

    So, let’s see. Constant harping about “Nazis” and constant harping about Muslims. I wonder whose narrative is being pushed here?

    No because you/they don’t belong in my or any other persons country. But I think the smartest thing Jews can do is either appease the Palestinians by coming to some form of agreement, be it by paying them a large enough fee to leave or perhaps integrating them as separate but equal with modern infrastructure, or to pay to live somewhere else. The US purchased many of its modern states over time, if Israel is truly as high IQ and rich as they say then Israel should purchase land and territories legitimately to home their people.

    I’m sure if Israel stopped receiving aid from America that they would find more peaceful solutions instead of constant agitating because they know they are backed up. I do think the issue is too far gone at this point for Jews to leave Israel simply because population transfers never work en masse, but if there is to be a solution it will require actual bargaining, concessions, and communication between the parties instead of just bulldozing your opponents houses and threatening to blow everyone up if it doesn’t go your way.

    Yes. They were citizens of several countries, mostly Poland, when they invaded Palestine. Then a high proportion from the USA. Let their children go back to those places. It seems many are leaving anyway. They know there is no future for a Jewish state in Palestine. That they spend their lives in armed conflict and constant imagined threat, when in other countries people live in a kind of peace and security that they will never know there. is so absurd.

    And that the Zionists attempted to cause the Germans to kill six million Jews, went on to claim that the Nazis killed that number when they didn’t do anything of the kind, and Nazi tactics were largely in response what the Jews had done to destroy Germany, in turn provocation because they wanted all Jews to be sent to Palestine, when that is becoming more and more widely known in this world of rapid communications, the Jews will simply abandon Judaism.

    I’m sure if Israel stopped receiving aid from America that they would find more peaceful solutions instead of constant agitating because they know they are backed up. I do think the issue is too far gone at this point for Jews to leave Israel simply because population transfers never work en masse, but if there is to be a solution it will require actual bargaining, concessions, and communication between the parties instead of just bulldozing your opponents houses and threatening to blow everyone up if it doesn’t go your way.

    When, not if. As the monstrosity of the Jews becomes more and more widely known, the longer “Israel” exists, the shorter Judaism will exist. It’s being abandoned more and more rapidly with every new generation.

    It looks as though the Jews know what’s happening and are going more and more frantic. More and more Holocaust Museums are being planned for smaller and smaller towns in the West. And of course their ongoing campaign to criminalize Holocaust “denial”.

    It’s not a case of en-masse. It would be good if some countries supported the Palestinians by inviting the Jews to leave “Israel” and come to their countries, not en-masse but fairly, making emigration from the ME easier for them. But many Jews have left already and that will continue. There will be an eventual 1SS with the indigenous Palestinians, the original Hebrews and Canaanites, in the majority.

    I agree with Hey Nonny No above. Make it easy for them to emigrate, perhaps come to our own country. Even if there were a flood of Jews coming in, in a few generations there will be no Jews, or only a tiny, tiny number of cranks.

    I’m not sure why the leaders of any religious institution should be presumed to be apolitical, especially to the degree that we’re shocked by their partisanship. Just take a look at the Pope, at some of the prominent U.S. televangelists, at the fatwas issued by certain Imams … the institutional aspect of religion has had its nose buried in politics from day one, not that there isn’t some practical necessity involved in that marriage. Whether or not one supports the political leaning of any of these institutional mouthpieces is a separate matter, but they do often have a genius for making themselves appear ludicrous.
