Here is the RMT’s Eddie Dempsey laying into former Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks for his hysterical attempt to equate Jeremy Corbyn with the racist Tory/Unionist demagogue Enoch Powell. Comrade Dempsey gives no quarter to the Sky News interviewer or his opponent in the exchange, Charlotte Henry, a senior Press Officer for the Israel lobby outfit BICOM.
We have our differences with comrade Demspey, as it is not difficult to discover from reading this site. However we wholeheartedly applaud his defiance of the witchhunt here, and his refusal to give an inch to the Zionists’ prolonged attack on Labour’s members and supporters for daring to elect a defender of Palestinian rights to lead Labour.
If Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow cabinet and advisers took comrade Dempsey’s approach to this witchhunt, the whole anti-semitism smear would be blown out of the water within a week or two. The ruling class press would be forced to look for some other means to attack.
Instead the likes of Lansman and Owen Jones grovel before Zionists like the racist, anti-Palestinian JLM, and Lansman lobbies actively for Labour to adopt the Zionist IHRA pseudo-‘definition’ of ‘anti-Semitism’, which characteristically exploits Jewish suffering under the Nazis to justify Palestinian suffering today and tries to ban criticism of Israel’s endemic racist crimes. Indeed the JLM, affiliated to Labour, is part of Israel’s racist pseudo-‘Labour’ Party that was in power in Israel both when more than 750,000 Arabs were driven from their homes in 1947-9, in what Arabs call the Naqba (catastrophe), and when the West Bank and Gaza were siezed by force in the 6 day war of 1967.
Comrade Dempsey’s contribution has caused disquiet among the Zionists, as an example of how to stand up to them and fight back without flinching. They fear others may learn from this. So they should!
