LibDem Friends of Palestine Pushes Anti-Semitic Miliband Slur

What is it about LibDems and “the Jews”? Even David Ward would have thought twice about LibDem Friends of Palestine’s decision to post an anti-Semitic article attacking Ed Miliband on their Facebook page.

The article reports that “the Labour leader found the time to socialise with the Jewish Lobby”, an infamous racial trope referencing the nasty stereotype of alleged Jewish influence in public life. It goes on to accuse Miliband of exhibit[ing] the complete panoply of Jewish tribal commitment” and “drip[ing] the holy water of the Holocaust and the primacy of Jewish suffering”, claiming that “the Holocaust is the new religion of the Jews”. The article concludes:

“no Brit should consider voting Labour as long as it is ran by a Zionist Jew… the time is ripe to cleanse British public life of Zionists and Jerusalemites”

LibDem Friends of Palestine is the official pro-Palestine organisation in the party, with stalls at party conference every year and a photo of ‘Jihad’ Jenny Tonge at the top of its Facebook page. Oy vey ist mir! 

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats says:

“This is not the party view in any way whatsoever. It is clearly inappropriate and offensive. The link has now been removed, LibDem Friends of Palestine recognise it was a mistake.”

No apology, yet…
