Khan: Corbyn Unacceptable

Sadiq Khan has condemned Corbyn’s remarks about British Zionists as “unacceptable”, issuing a warning that “some anti-Semites use the word Zionist to describe Jewish people”. Speaking on LBC this morning, he said Corbyn’s comments had been “perceived by many to be racist”:

SK: “That was unacceptable, and what I think we should welcome is that Jeremy Corbyn…”

JO’B: “So he’s not racist and he’s not anti-Semitic but he said something that’s unacceptable because it is racist and anti-Semitic?”

SK: “The words he said were unacceptable and that paragraph is perceived by many to be racist… the word ‘Zionist’ has been hijacked by anti-Semites.”

Khan is absolutely right to call out those using the word “Zionist” to try to cover up their anti-Semitic views. Will Corbyn follow his example?

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
