Like Dr Alf and his wife, I too saw the BBC’s Andrew Marr programme, and the limp wristed performance by Diane Abbott, who did herself and Jeremy Corbyn no favours.
Anti Semitism has been with us for thousands of years, as evidenced by history in more than 80 major episodes and thousands of smaller ones.
The Battle of Cable Street, with Sir Oswald Moseley and his black shirts, aided by a complicit constabulary, was nearly lost until dock workers and stevedores came to the aid of the Jewish community in the East End of London. Jeremy Corbyn needs to remember that his own father was at Cable Street.
The birth of the Jewish state of Israel, in May 1948, was nearly stopped by the secret delivery of 25,000 rifles, delivered by the British secret services to the Palestinians at the time.
During World War II, the Allies could have stopped the transportation of Jews to extermination camps but chose to deliberately not to bomb the railway lines leading to those camps.
My own late father, who was with the Italian army in German occupied France, at the age of 20, rescued two railway wagons full of emaciated Jews destined for a concentration camp in Germany by unbolting the doors, shouting at them to run for their lives, in what little German he knew, and hid them and himself in a nearby church, whilst a Lancaster bomber circled overhead with orders to bomb the railway station but not the track because of the large concentration of SS troops that were there.
Jeremy Corbyn has a record of appeasing IRA terrorists, by inviting them to the House of Commons, and this now extends to Hamas, Hezbollah and all sorts of Muslim Groups.
Ken Livingstone has a similar track record of nonsense and gets his facts wrong.
Hitler did not go mad but was evil; his extermination camps and gas ovens came into being after other methods such as shooting failed to achieve the desired “kill ratio”, and it should be remembered that he was financed in everything that he did by Union Bank Corporation, wealthy German industrialists like Fritz Thyssen a personal friend of George Prescott Bush, Rockefeller who provided oil and the engines that went into his Panzer tanks.
To begin with, Hitler allegedly approached the British, who controlled Palestine, to take the Jews who were in Germany; the British refused, on the grounds that they had too many problems governing that protectorate. He had his “Plan B” ready but again nobody did anything to stop him, and no newspaper said anything about the concentration camps and extermination camps that Hitler was building, even though the Allies must have had aerial photographs showing the nature and extent of the construction.
The Labour Party is now run by people who want the Muslim vote at all costs, even if it means appeasing those Muslims who see everyone other than themselves as inferior.
Jeremy Corbyn, by default and by omission, is engaged in this practice and the condonation by nudge and wink of anti Semitism. If Corbyn’s father was at Cable Street, then Corbyn needs to come clean and follow the proud example of his father or resign as an imposter.
