Archbishop of Canterbury backs Chief Rabbi’s condemnation of Labour over antisemitism in unprecedented election intervention

11

TRoo little, too late. The UK appears to approaching the point of no return.

Archbishop of Canterbury backs Chief Rabbi’s condemnation of Labour over anti-Semitism in unprecedented election intervention – but BOTH religious leaders are bombarded with vile Corbynista abuse online

  • Ephraim Mirvis said the majority of Jews were ‘gripped by anxiety’ over Corbyn
  • He accused Corbyn of allowing the ‘poison’ of anti-Semitism to take root
  • His remarks came as Labour prepares to launch its ‘race and faith manifesto’

By James Tapsfield, Mail Online, November 2019:

Corbynistas launched vile attacks on Britain’s Chief Rabbi today after he condemned Labour over its anti-Semitism crisis – and was backed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Making an unprecedented intervention, Ephraim Mirvis said the vast majority of British Jews were ‘gripped by anxiety’ at the idea of Jeremy Corbyn in No 10.
He accused Mr Corbyn of allowing the ‘poison’ of anti-Semitism to take root in Labour, saying it could no longer claim to be the party of diversity, equality and anti-racism.

Urging voters to examine their consciences in the polling booth, he warned: ‘The very soul of our nation is at stake.’

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, waded into the row today by saying the rabbi’s intervention should ‘alert us to the deep sense of insecurity and fear felt by many British Jews’.

But both religious leaders were subjected to a vicious backlash on social media, with Rabbi Mirvis branded a ‘sewer rat’ and complaints of ‘Israeli interference’.

The Chief Rabbi took aim at Mr Corbyn for supporting a racist mural and for describing terrorists who endorse the murder of Jews as ‘friends’.
Mr Welby said: ‘That the Chief Rabbi should be compelled to make such an unprecedented statement at this time ought to alert us to the deep sense of insecurity and fear felt by many British Jews.’
The warnings came as Mr Corbyn prepared to launch his party’s ‘race and faith manifesto’ this morning, which includes a plan to hold an inquiry into far-Right extremism.
Rabbi warns Jews might consider leaving the UK if Corbyn becomes PM
A crossbench rabbi has warned that Jews could choose to leave Britain if Jeremy Corbyn becomes PM.
Crossbench peer Baroness Julia Neuberger said there had been an ‘insidious anti-Semitic tone’ since Mr Corbyn became Labour leader.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, she said: ‘I think it’s been quite a gradual process.
‘So, since Jeremy Corbyn has been leader of the Labour Party there has been this insidious anti-Semitic tone to quite a lot of what’s happened and an unwillingness to really face it.
‘There’s been an unwillingness at the top and people of the Jewish community have seen that unwillingness and thought ‘what’s going on? A major political party – what is going on here? Why are they not gripping it?”
Lady Neuberger warned that Jews would have to consider leaving the county if Mr Corbyn ended up in power.
‘People will look for ways of moving or having a place somewhere else, or whatever they can possibly do to mitigate what feels oppressive, uncomfortable, dangerous,’ she said.
It will also propose to teach all schoolchildren about the ‘injustice’ of the British empire.
And it accuses the Equality and Human Rights Commission watchdog – which is investigating Labour over institutional anti-Semitism – of not being ‘truly independent’.

Current and former Labour politicians also weighed in behind Rabbi Mirvis.
Jess Philips, who is defending her Birmingham Yardley seat, said: ‘The only response to the chief Rabbi that is moral is, ‘I’m sorry and I’ll do whatever I possibly can to win back your community’s trust.’ So that’s what I will say.’
Luciana Berger, who quit Labour in protest at anti-Semitism and joined the Lib Dems, said the comments were ‘devastating’.
Former minister Ian Austin said: ‘It is unprecedented for the Chief Rabbi to have to do this.
‘It is heartbreaking to see a party so many of us joined to fight racism and which had such a proud record of fighting for equality reduced to this. Utterly shameful. A complete disgrace. Corbyn & co should be so ashamed.’
Home Secretary Priti Patel said it was ‘staggering’ that Labour would ‘lecture people about race and faith’ while the party was under investigation by the Equality and Human Rights Commission for anti-Semitism.
In his attack, in an article for The Times, the Chief Rabbi wrote: ‘The way in which the leadership of the Labour Party has dealt with anti-Jewish racism is incompatible with the British values of which we are so proud – of dignity and respect for all people

‘What we do know from history is that what starts with the Jews, never ends with the Jews.’
Rabbi Mirvis quoted a claim from the Jewish Labour Movement that 130 cases of anti-Semitism had not been dealt with by party officials.
A Labour spokesman insisted this figure was false, adding: ‘Jeremy Corbyn is a lifelong campaigner against anti-Semitism and has made absolutely clear it has no place in our party and society and that no one who engages in it does so in his name.’ The storm came as:
Mr Corbyn has been blamed for Labour’s anti-Semitism problem because he has spent his political life fraternising with the hard Left.


Mr Corbyn prepares to launch his party’s ‘race and faith manifesto’ this morning
On one occasion in Parliament he even greeted representatives of the Islamist terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as ‘friends’.
In 2012, Mr Corbyn offered his backing online to Los Angeles-based street artist Mear One, whose mural, featuring several known anti-Semitic tropes, was due to be removed after complaints.
Later, he was pictured holding a wreath yards from the graves of terror leaders linked to the 1972 Munich Olympics killings.
Since he became Labour leader in 2015, two female Jewish MPs have been driven out of the party by the anti-Semitic abuse they have faced and one of them even needed a bodyguard at the party conference.
Now Labour is under investigation by the Equality and Human Rights Commission over its racism problem – only the second party after the BNP to face such a probe.
Home Secretary Priti Patel said it was ‘staggering’ that Labour would ‘lecture people about race and faith’ while the party was under investigation
Two rabbis have already come out to urge voters not to back Mr Corbyn’s party.
But last night’s intervention of the Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth, at the height of an election campaign, is utterly unprecedented.
Sajid Javid said he was ‘saddened’ by the Chief Rabbi’s comments, calling for a period of reflection in a post on Twitter.
The Chancellor wrote: ‘Very saddened to read this. To think the Chief Rabbi of a European nation has to say this about a contender for high office in 2019.
‘We should all reflect on the state of our politics.’
The Labour spokesman said the party was taking robust action to root out anti-Semitism, with swift suspensions, processes for rapid expulsions and an education programme for members.
‘Anti-Semitism complaints account for about 0.1 per cent of the Labour Party membership, while polls show anti-Semitism is more prevalent among Conservative than Labour supporters,’ he added. ‘In the past week it’s been revealed Conservative candidates said events in the Holocaust were ‘fabricated’ and called British Jews ‘extremists’.
‘A Labour government will guarantee the security of the Jewish community, defend and support the Jewish way of life, and combat rising anti-Semitism in our country and across Europe.’
‘We known from history, what starts with the Jews never ends with the Jews’: Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis’s message in full
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said Labour’s inaction on anti-Semitism has left many ‘ashamed’
The overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety. The question I am most frequently asked is: What will become of Jews and Judaism in Britain if the Labour Party forms the next government?
The Jewish community has… learned the hard way that speaking out means that we will be demonised… and accused of being partisan or acting in bad faith by those who still think of this as an orchestrated political smear. Yet, I ask myself: should the victims of racism be silenced by the fear of yet further vilification?
The way in which the leadership of the Labour Party has dealt with anti-Jewish racism is incompatible with the British values of which we are so proud. It has left many decent Labour members and parliamentarians, both Jewish and non-Jewish, ashamed.
It is a failure to see this as a human problem rather than a
