This is not surprising to those of us who have been for years documenting the new antisemitism on the left. But what was once in the closet is now proudly displayed and waved about like a flag — much like 1930s Germany. Jewish leaders and organizations have ignored this. Worse they attacked those of who refused to be silent. What better example of this craven cowardice than Jewish communal groups backing my ban to the UK. In 2013, the Jewish Board of Deputies vice-president Jonathan Arkush said Ms Geller presence would be “deeply unhelpful to community relations”. A shameful example of the dhimmi Jew in an Islamic state.
