This is another despicable act of anti-Semitism by the Labour Party. The Labour Party will likely oust this Jewish MP (Louise Ellman) because she has condemned Jeremy Corbyn for turning the Labour Party into a neo-Nazi party.
Labour Party officials have decided to debate Ellman’s status on October 8th, while Ellman would be observing Yom Kippur. Labour Party officials did not even have the courage to give Ellman the opportunity to defend herself against their attacks.
The damage that Jeremy Corbyn has done to the Labour Party is likely permanent. The Labour Party may never again be a party that is welcoming for Jews. Jewish Democrats in the United States should take note.
Jewish Labour MP could be ousted on Yom Kippur
Veteran Jewish MP from Britain’s Labour party faces no-confidence vote which is scheduled for Erev Yom Kippur.
By Israel National News, October 3, 2019:
A veteran Jewish MP on behalf of Britain’s Labour party is facing a no-confidence vote which is scheduled for the evening of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Chronicle reports.
The St. Michael’s Labour branch in Dame Louise Ellman’s Liverpool Riverside constituency is to debate a motion calling for her resignation and has scheduled the debate for Tuesday evening, on which Yom Kippur begins.
A motion cites a Jewish Chronicle article that reported Ellman’s speech in which she said she said she “understands why Jews would seriously consider leaving Britain if Corbyn became PM”.
The motion says, “We have no confidence that our MP Louise Ellman will carry out the wishes of our CLP and our Riverside constituency or that she will follow Labour Party policy.”
It adds, “This branch therefore call on our Riverside MP, Louise Ellman, to resign.”
In the speech in late September, Ellman lamented Jeremy Corbyn’s rise within her party, as well as the growth of anti-Semitism in Labour, adding that she “understood” why many British Jews would fear a Corbyn government to the point of leaving the UK if he were elected prime minister.
Ellman said in the speech that she had “never dreamed” her party would be led by “a man who would call Hezbollah and Hamas ‘friends’”.
A September 2018 poll by the Survation polling agency on behalf of The Jewish Chronicle found that 38.55% of British Jews would seriously consider leaving the UK if Corbyn became Prime Minister, with 85.9% saying they believed Corbyn is anti-Semitic.
The Jewish Labour Movement condemned the scheduling of the debate on Ellman for the night on which Kol Nidre is recited, calling it “truly despicable” and the “racially motivated targeting and bullying of a Jewish MP”.
