If this is what Corbyn’s Labour is, who needs Tories?

On 5 May 2016, Londoners will select their next mayor. Their choice is between Zac Goldsmith, a Jewish millionaire married to a Rothschild and Sadiq Khan, a spinelessSabbos Goy.
The Jewish Chronicle (JC) revealed yesterday that Mr. Sadiq Khan who in the past made repeated calls on ministers to impose sanctions on Israel, has finally changed his spots. In an obvious attempt to appease Britain’s Jews, Khan told the JC that after studying the evidence he now believes that: “the evidence clearly shows that boycott, sanctions and divestment against Israel do not help us achieve peace – we must not turn our face against Israel.”
I’ve been reporting on Jeremy Corbyn’s shameless capitulation to the Jewish Lobby. The long time campaigner for Palestine has, in just a few weeks, been reduced into a sad Zionist puppet whose position on Israel has descended into a copy of a Likud pamphlet.
Labour’s shameless groveling knows no end. We learn this morning that Corbyn’s party has expelled Gerry Downing, a far left activist whose views on Zionism don’t fit with the new kosher party line.
Downing, a marginal Trotskyite, wrote in his blog that Isis is “not agreeing with what they were doing," adding: "I don't support the politics of Isis, they are vile barbarians. But I don't support American imperialist bombing either.”
Apparently opposing American imperial wars is now unacceptable within the Labour ranks.
Mr. Downing, a former bus driver and member of the tiny Socialist Fight group, said on his Twitter page that his ambition is "to end capitalism on the planet by socialist revolution.” Slightly delusional perhaps, but I remember that until two months ago this ideal was shared by Corbyn. Not anymore, I guess by now Corbyn has even mastered the national anthem, I mean the Hatikvah.
The JC was kind enough to provide us with the list of crimes that led to Downing’s eviction: in 2014 Downing referred to “Hamas heroism,” he appeared to have questioned aspects of the Holocaust and claimed prominent historian Ian Kershaw had a “Zionist minder.” In addition, his Socialist Fight group’s website has published articles by other authors including one demanding that “Marxists must address the Jewish Question” and another referring to a “world Jewish-Zionist Bourgeoisie.”
The UK Jewish Lobby spokesperson told the JC: “If the comments attributed to Gerry Downing about Jews are genuine, he is an obnoxious antisemite who should not be accepted in any modern political movement.”
Labour MP John Woodcock, ex-Labour Friends of Israel chair, wrote to Mr. Corbyn urging him to expel Mr. Downing. Mr. Woodcock said the activist’s views were “sickening and bring our party into disrepute.”
Again, Corbyn quickly surrendered. A Labour spokeswoman said: “following further evidence that has come to light, Gerry Downing has now been excluded from the Labour Party by the NEC panel.”
If this is what Corbyn’s Labour is all about, we really don’t need Tories.
