The Zionist Andrew Coates defends the Zionist John Lansmam over the auto expulsion of Fred Leplat because he defended Jeremy Corbyn and identified the Zionist anti semitism witch hunt as conflating criticism of the state of Israel with antisemitism, a position that Andrew Coates at least implicitly endorses.
Then to cover his scabby position he pleads that Fred should never have been expelled as his Socialist Resistance group has a pro imperialist line of supporting US led regime change in Syria.
And this unprincipled grovelling before the masters of life includes trying to seem acceptable to capitalist society in general by citing Socialist Fight and Gerry Downing as real anti Semites for correctly identifying Zionist power and influence in the West.

Why was this expulsion so rapid?
Fred and SR have never made the slightest secret about their politics.
LePlat is well known, and liked, by many people on the left and the labour movement as his position as Barnet Momentum secretary indicates.
The views of SR on broader issues…
