Corbyn has apologised for attending antisemitism meetings where Israel was compared to Nazi Germany.

 

I'm pretty sure that he hasn't, but am more than happy for you to provide evidence of this.

Can't comparing Israel's actions to the Nazi's just be wrong? why does it have to "anti-Semitic"?

I think you might need to look at his work with the IRA. You can only make peace with your enemy by entering into a debate.

I know this might seem like a strange option to those that would rather bomb people.

 

So he will share a platform with people he doesn't agree with when they are the IRA or Islamic militants, but he refused to share a platform with the likes of Tony Blair and David Cameron over their pro EU stance?

 

:loopy:

So no evidence then?

 

Only his apology as broadcast on radio and tv, nothing definitive though. :rolleyes:

It's not anti-Semitic.

 

You can only be anti-Semitic against a people, not a state.

Sharing a platform with Cameron has nothing to do with bringing about a peace process during conflict. Tony Blair is now completely irrelevant. And, let's face it, Corbyn and Cameron shared the stage every week during PMQ's

comparing Israel and the Arabs since 1948 and Nazi Germany and European Jews in WW2 is a form of Holocaust denial and therefore in in effect, antisemitic. Unless you think Holocaust denial is also not antisemite.

... except when it is a state for Jews, which Israel is.

 

90% of criticism of Israel is because it is a state for Jews. Not because of what its policies are. Although criticism of those policies is totally legitimate, most people who blindly criticise Israel only have a very hazy idea of what its like and what the issues are. If it wasn't a state for Jews most people who criticise Israel wouldn't be interested in it.

Certainly in some parts of the world that is true but in the UK and certainly in the Labour Party I'd say that 99% of criticism of Israel is down to its treatment of those in the occupied territories.

 

Are you also claiming that the United Nations is anti-Semitic because of the number of resolutions condemning Israel's actions?
