Apr 9, 2018 — The Charity Commission's Guideline's on Political Campaigning are quite clear.

'legal requirement: in the political arena, a charity must stress its independence and ensure that any involvement it has with political parties is balanced"'

On its website this is what the 'balanced' Campaign Against Antisemitism has to say in its J'Accuse:

''Gideon Falter, Chairman of Campaign Against Antisemitism, said: “Under Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party has been seized by racists. Jeremy Corbyn is at home amongst them, having spent his political career seeking out and giving his backing to Holocaust deniers, genocidal antisemitic terrorist groups, wild antisemitic conspiracy theorists and a litany of Jew-haters. This is the point of no return: Britain must stand up for its Jewish community against the racists in control of the Labour Party. Future generations are watching: to be silent is to condone. On 8th April at 2pm, the British public will take a national stand against antisemitism in London. We are calling on a broad coalition of those who oppose racism to join us.”

In its call for a national demonstration against the Labour Party - which it held yesterday - at which some 250 people turned up according to the Daily Mirror, the CAA stated that:

'Labour has become a safe haven for racists. He is at home amongst them, having spent his political career seeking out and giving succour to Holocaust deniers, genocidal antisemitic terrorist groups and a litany of Jew-haters.'

This vicious, libelous wholly untrue series of accusations against Jeremy Corbyn has nothing to do with charitable purposes or fighting anti-semitism. It is nakedly Zionist political campaigning. There is no public benefit to this kind of public slandering of Corbyn, quite the opposite. We have to insist that the CAA is deregistered.

The Charity Commission is presided over by its far-Right Chairman, William Shawcross, who was a Director of the far-Right Henry Jackson Society. Shawcross is an Islamaphobe who is on record as saying that:

'“"Europe and Islam is one of the greatest, most terrifying problems of our future. I think all European countries have vastly, very quickly, growing Islamic populations..."

The Charity Commission under Shawcross has pursued a nakedly anti-Muslim bias against Muslim charities.

In one week's time I am presenting the petition calling on the Charity Commission to Deregister the CAA - so far they have refused to do so - but the evidence that they are not a charity is now overwhelming.

It may be that we will need to seek a Judicial Review and if necessary I will apply for one. The Charity Commission needs to say to this nasty group of racist Zionists - 'yes by all means organise around your Zionist politics but not as a charity'
