If You Criticise Israeli Apartheid You are Anti-Semitic

Mar 25, 2017 — Len Duvall, Labour Leader of the Greater London Assembly, wrote to Free Speech on Israel defending the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism. It is a definition that bogus 'charity', Campaign Against Anti-Semitism use to attack critics of Israel and Zionism as 'anti-Semitic'.

In my 'Open Letter to Len Duvall, Labour's Racist Leader of the Greater London Assembly'

I refer to Duvall's quotation of a passage in the IHRA which states that '‘criticism of Israel similar to that levelled against any other country cannot be regarded as anti-Semitic’. to prove that it doesn't call criticism of Israel anti-semitic.

There's just one problem. Israel isn't like all other countries. In what other country would a party that calls for equal rights for all its citizens, whatever their religion, be prevented from standing for Parliament?

Just in the last week, Israel's Knesset has just done that. See:

That is why, contrary to Duvall's statement, Israel is not just another western democracy. For Arabs it is a police state and for Jews it is a democracy (but increasingly less so)
