Then They Came for Tony Greenstein

Following the outrageous expulsion of AZZ extraordinaire Tony Greenstein from the Labour Party, the equally vindictive Labour Against The Witchhunt (LAW) published this embarrassing tweet:
According to LAW’s logic, Greenstein should have been vindicated due to the fact that he is:

Then Tony came for Richard Falk, John Mearsheimer, Samir Abbed Rabbo, Makram Khoury Machoul, Alison Wier, Nahida Izzat, Norman Finkelstein, Ken O’Keefe, Oren Ben Dor, Paul Eisen, Greta Berlin, Lauren Booth, Laura Stuart, Gabi Weber, Ian Donovan, Gerry Downing and Socialist Fight and many others.
And I did not speak out because this confirmed everything I had to say about the corrosive impact of the Jewish solidarity spin.
Then they came for Tony Greenstein — everybody was laughing with satisfaction except myself because I pretend to be an empathic goy…
