Anti-Semitism in Once-Great Britain

A friend linked this article in the comments section of a prior post. It is well worth its own post. When you read it, ask yourself whether it is taking place in Germany in the 1930s or in Great Britain today. Unfortunately, the latter is the correct answer.

Anti-Semitism has arrived in Once-Great Britain. Under the aegis of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and London mayor Sadiq Khan, Palestinian activists are allowed openly to destroy Jewish businesses. It used to be called a pogrom. It still should. One suspects that the protests against President Trump stem in some part from the fact that he is pro-Israeli.

No one seems to be reporting the story, certainly not the American mainstream press. So, we turn to the Daily Mail:

British Jews have spoken of their fear after a pro-Palestine group supported by Jeremy Corbyn forced Jewish-owned shops to close by staging aggressive rallies outside them.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), of which Mr Corbyn is patron, targeted shops selling Israeli products in Brighton, London and Manchester, forcing two businesses to fold.

Earlier this month, it organised a rally in London which saw ‘open anti-Semitism from attendees’, according to the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism. A statement from the Labour leader was read out to the crowd.

What was the rationale?

According to activists, both outlets sold products made on the disputed West Bank.

But the PSC also targeted shops like Manchester-based Kedem, which sells cosmetics from undisputed Israeli territory. That outlet narrowly avoided closure by gaining a court order that forced activists away from the entrance.

Kedem's owner, Avishai Ludel, 41, said he was hit by a mob of 1,000 demonstrators for four months in 2014. He had to use £10,000 of his own savings to keep his business afloat, he said.

It's a terrifying echo of Nazi Germany….

A spokesman for Jewish Human Rights Watch (JHRW), which produced the film, said: ‘It is unbelievable that in this day and age, a Jewish shop owner can be hounded from city to city in a sick game of chase the Jew. It's a terrifying echo of Nazi Germany.

‘It's a campaign of intimidation. Jeremy Corbyn should hang his head in shame to be patron of one of the groups that targets Jewish businesses.’

Of course, he will not. When you are incapable of building anything yourself you can only deflect attention from your failures by destroying what others have built.
