Labour and anti-Semitism: Will Corbyn’s suspension reignite the party’s civil war? – BBC Newsnight

Is this the day Labour draws a line in the sand over anti-Semitism in the party, or begins a new civil war with Jeremy Corbyn leading the charge? Please subscribe here:

The Labour Party has suspended former leader Jeremy Corbyn from the party over his reaction to a highly critical report on anti-Semitism.

The human rights watchdog found Labour responsible for “unlawful” harassment and discrimination during Mr Corbyn’s years in charge of the party.

Corbyn later said the scale of anti-Semitism within Labour had been “dramatically overstated” by opponents.

A Labour Party spokesman said Jeremy Corbyn was being suspended “for a failure to retract” his words.

Newsnight’s Political Editor Nick Watt reports and Kirsty Wark is joined by Labour’s Deputy Leader, Angela Rayner.

    You cannot use the census or surveys to guage the Ethnicity of the voters.Nobody fills in or honestly declares their nationalities on those forms ,remember what happened to King Herod's first borns and of cause in wartime Germany.There isn't even a category for THEM youre either white ,mixed or other and blacks are the only category that has ten separate permutations.makes one really wonder about the state of putting the sign of the sheeple above your door and you will not be sacrificed by Pilate

    What goes around comes around. Years of bullying people within the party requires payback, Don't worry Jezza, the Labour party might have kicked you out but you are still welcome with your comrades in Hezbollah, Hamas and the IRA.

    Criticism of British government is not Criticism of the country's people or religion (Christianity).
    In the same way criticism of Israel's horrific inhumane acts against the Palestinian people (for evidence, check amnesty's website and UN) is not Anti-Semitic, it is anti Israel's
    government.
    Have the same energy, if not then you're also in the camp of unjust and inhumane.

    I actually can't believe her response to the count your gold comment. I actually don't think I can vote for Labour again, there is too much rot in that party ( in more ways than one). I think as an electorate we are probably better off campaigning and writing to labour MP's to break away. It's so annoying because I have voted for Labour twice and my other 2 votes were abstain and a 'fringe party' . Now I pretty much have no-one to vote for. And out of principle I won't vote for conservatives. Labour are doing a massive dis-service to our country by not offering a decent opposition.

    Absolute hypocritcy from the media and politicians, criticism of a government or regime and it's act of injustice and evil isn't antisemitism.

    I hate the anti-British path the Labour Party has gone down, and Jeremy being on our opponent's team on every single issue is emblematic of this problem. I think Jeremy also has a blind spot for anti-semitism because of his (and many other far left people's) obsession with Palestine, he has a pathological "they're oppressed so cannot be evil and anti-semitism is evil" rationalisation problem there. Having said all that the orgy of attacks being thrown at him by the Labour Party to try and wash off his stink is pretty graceless.

    Enough is enough you have to know when to abandon ship get a new ship and fight a hard battle I am no longer in support of the PLP and the Labour party i have been trying all afternoon to reach someone to cancel my membership as the email is not working.
    The way to win is to chose your battles and win them lots of little wins gains support and eventfully the big win.
    If a new party is formed it needs to happen as soon as possible if its to challenge and beat both the tories and Labour to number 10.
    Joining another party that already exist is pointless as if they truly stand up for what you believe why did you not join them in the first place. This is why i say a new purpose built party for now todays challenges and with doing this it will show all parties including Labour that the public can not be taken for granted and will not stand by politician's who are bought.

    Of course labour are anti-semitic.Thats why they have a large membership. for that reason.There is a difference to being sympathetic to palestine and pro palestine.And the area has been disputed for a long long time.Not just after ww2.Rayner,Starmer and many labour mps and members are culpable in this scandal,they all knew and did nothing, in fact covered it up.

    The interesting thing is the refusal to recognise reality in a good number of the comments on this news story, and the fundamentally antisemitic nature of some of them.

    Opposing the Zionist agenda of illegal occupation and genocide is not "anti-Semitism". Many actual Jews are also strongly opposed to the same agenda.

    The British media needs to stop peddling this blatant propaganda, and neoliberal "socialists" like Starmer need to stop scapegoating actual socialists who merely oppose violations of the UN Security Council's resolutions..

    Jeremy Corbin is not Anti Semite rather Anti Zionist. It's the Zionists hiding behind the curtains of Antisemitism. How cowardly of them.
