“False accusations of anti-Semitism in order to defend the racist, apartheid state of Israel is a crime itself, and one which we should not tolerate”.
“The purpose of the anti-Semitism charge, is to protect the state of Israel. Historically, the main opposition to Zionism came from Jewish people themselves”.
“Netanyahu made it clear that Israel is not a state of its own citizens, but a state only for its Jewish citizens”.
“Anyone who criticises the Israeli governments policy towards the Palestinians, is denounced as anti-Semitic.”
“The people who don’t want Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street, it is not because they fear he is anti-Semitic, it is because they fear he is going to crackdown on all the tax-dodgers, make corporations pay their fair share and that is what they fear”.
“Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism, and by conflating the two they are closing down a crucial debate about Palestine and the occupation”.
