Jeremy Corbyn, the opposite of ‘Never Again’!

Yadigar Sadıqov

Consider what has been said/ written/ published/ discussed just in the past two weeks about Corbyn, the Labour leader.

  • He has encouraged, by silence and inactivity; anti-semitic behaviour by Labour MPs and Labour activists.
  • He has virtually ignored mainstream Jewish leaders and Jewish statements
  • He has even ignored pressure from the Jewish leader of the Momentum activist  section of Labour to alter his actions and statements.
  • He says “”People have a right to speak out and they have a right to demonstrate, and that surely is something that’s intrinsic in any democratic society.” in reply to anti-semitic taunts, tweets and statements.
  • He could not, or rather would not, see anything repulsive, or damaging, or even disturbing; about a piece of ‘wall art’ featuring Jewish bankers seated around a Monopoly board supported by the backs and bodies of slaves.
  • Etc., etc., etc..

So why am I, a virulent opponent of everything Jeremy Corbyn stands for; writing; not exactly in defence, but perhaps in explanation of this man?

Simples: really!

All his political life, he has maintained a hard-line Leftist approach, to the extent of voting against his own Party’s stance on over five hundred occasions.

He runs the straight-forward Hard-Left line on Nationalisation, inclusive of paying nothing for privatised industry when ‘Reclaiming it for the People’. His sidekick McDonnell states that the industries’ owners, the shareholders, would be paid in Government bonds, and we all know what their worth would be under a Labour Government.

He is great buddies with the likes of Hamas and Hezbollah, and thinks they have a great cause; and because he is the type of politician who nails his colours to the mast, can never admit that he made a mistake; never admit that the friends are more than dubious, they are just plain wrong: he cannot go back on his word.

When asked point blank if he would use nukes in defence of GB&NI, he temporised, and muttered that he would talk (shortform for ‘surrender’); because he could not contemplate the decision to take that amount of lives.

He attended a Seder Passover supper given by a small outlier Jewish organisation; because these particular Jews all see the world the same as he does. They are hard-line Leftist Jews. They think and state that Israel is a pile of sewage, and should be disposed of accordingly.

But Corbyn dislikes both Israel and the Jews not because he is anti-semitic; he dislikes them because they will not compromise, they will not see the other point of view; they will not bend with the prevailing winds: but instead they make hawks look like three-day-old chicks. They will fight, because theirs is a fight for survival. They fight, because the unofficial motto of the Holy Land is, simply, Never Again!

    “he dislikes them because they will not compromise, they will not see the other point of view; they will not bend with the prevailing winds”

    I don’t think its that, it runs much deeper. Western civilisation is based on a Judeo-Christian heritage and the Nation State. The Enlightenment and the insistence on empirical evidence are an anathema to the Marxist/Post Modernist viewpoint where facts don’t count, only opinions. Western values are by their definition racist, imperialist, colonialist and thus anybody who prefers the nation state over and super or supra national body is thus a xenophobe, racist imperialist. Israel especially gets it in the neck because they are based on a religion, a race and they are a nation state. It is the Left’s hatred of the nation state that there is so much fury about the Brexit result and the election of Trump – both statements of wanting to go back to/and continue the nation state.

      It’s an ancient battle.

    Maybe it’s simple electoral arithmetic.

    There are only 200,000 Jewish voters in Britain – there are 2,000,000 Muslim voters in Britain. The Labour Party can easily get elected without the Jewish vote – the Labour Party cannot get elected without the Muslim vote. Do the maths.

    If any politician suggests opposition to Israel, he gets a shot at 2 million votes – if he suggests support for Israel, the best he can get is 10% of that.

    If the primary job of a politician is first to get elected, in order to then implement his policies (without getting elected, policies are mere puffery), then maybe Corbyn knows how the numbers-game works and is playing by the rules. Pragmatism or principle? You decide.

    They [Israel/Jews] will fight, because theirs is a fight for survival.

    No. They Defend – fight in this context implies instigate/attack.

    Defending Corbyn because he sticks to his principles of supporting murdering terrorists is wrong. He has no principles and believes in anarchy.

    Mudplugger nails it – Corbyn has no fixed principles and cares only about maximising votes for what was once the Labour Party (& is now the Welfare/Islamic/National Socialist Party).

    What bothers is that the Left are all for them saying what they like, but as soon as someone disagrees with them, they want to silence them.
