The Labour Party appears set to expel me for voicing opposition to Zionist racism and Israeli apartheid. I was a party activist of some 40 years standing and was subject to an investigation by the Labour Disputes Team. I responded to the first tranche of 19 questions, which I believed were fair. I was given two weeks to respond; my answers can be found at tinyurl.com/investigationresponse
However, on July 24, 2019 I received a second tranche; my answers were to be put before Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC). This time the questions were vicious, slanted, and accusatory. I responded within the timeframe but was angry about the Disputes Team’s attitude. I complained along the following lines to the Labour Leader’s Office, all 39 members of the party’s NEC, and the Party’s Complaints Team. The submission to the Disputes Team is in the embedded document at the end.
“I write to complain about the 50 questions that were put to me a week ago by the Disputes Team, demanding an answer within 7 days.” They seek confidentiality, but the Legal and Governance Unit, of which they form part, breaches confidentiality whenever it suits. My suspension from the party was broadcast to the Jewish News a week before I knew of it.
There are big problems with the Disputes Team; the Panorama programme that slated Labour about bogus anti-Semitism did not reveal the most important problem—that we are still riddled with fifth-columnists at HQ.
These people, clearly from the JLM, did not favour a Labour government under Corbyn and did their best to expel left-wing Labour activists like me. They support apartheid in Israel; they do not care about how much their questioning reflects a bias; not once did they acknowledge Israel’s racist nature. By siding with that racist colony so enthusiastically, they betray the most appalling Islamophobia.
They cannot comprehend how much they undermine Labour’s commitment to social justice. They undermine our ability to combat racism. They are utterly in breach of the rulebook. In short, one wonders not only why they are in Labour but also why they have been recruited into this most sensitive area of Labour investigations, that of anti-Semitism, when they exhibit such flagrant support for the Zionist creed.
I disagreed with Corbyn’s statement that the Labour Party must be a home for Zionists. In the same breath, almost, he said we must support the Palestinians also. Yet Zionists are relentlessly expansionist for yet more land from Arabs in the Middle East, in addition to what they have already stolen from Palestine. They will never accommodate the Arabs and give them equality, for by definition, their state must be Jewish. That means, to them, that Jews must always rule and all other ethnoreligious groups must lose out. Corbyn’s position was therefore contradictory. He should have made the pledge to support Zionists in Labour, for that means supporting racism and the ubiquitous Islamophobia they peddle.
I had hoped the complaints team would investigate how many of the Disputes Team are in the JLM and reflect on the pro-Zionist nature of that body. I had hoped they would see that we should have replaced these racists with non-racists, for without such a rational action, we shall face many more attacks from within. Our Labour Party can no longer tolerate this bogus anti-Semitism, for it risks promoting real antagonism against Jews.
Every time one challenges a Zionist, they retort that they are a Jew. But that is an insult to decent Jews. As Rabbi Cohen says in my attached statement to the Disputes Team, “Judaism is an ancient, ethical, moral, compassionate, and religious way of life. Going back, as stated earlier, thousands of years. Whereas Zionism (the movement and concept that begat the State of Israel) is a nationalistic, harsh, inconsiderate, secular, and racist way of life, barely 120 years old, a totally new concept. It is totally incompatible with and diametrically unacceptable to Judaism on grounds of religious belief and religious humanitarian grounds.”
So there you have it. These Zionists are incompatible with Judaism. Let’s see the backs of them.”
My response to the 50 questions (which runs to 65 pages) and which was drafted with some help from LAZIR members can be viewed at tinyurl.com/disputeresponse
If readers would also like to complain about the Zionism at HQ, I urge them to email Labour using tinyurl.com/zionistcomplaint
As we can now witness, those entrenched with the Labour Party support a regime that imposes apartheid and genocide. This ethnic cleansing does not only take place in Gaza but also within the corridors of the Labour Party establishment.
