The numerous anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli slurs by elected representatives of the British Labour party have forced prominent Jews to take a public stand against this hate mongering. Usually Jewish community leaders have preferred to deal with problematic societal issues through direct contacts with politicians, using the ‘old boy networks’ so prevalent in British tradition. Since there was no Holocaust in the UK, no huge historical “break” occurred there severing Jews from the rest of the populace as in Europe, and networks have remained intact. By contrast, some continental Jewish leaders have learned that whether they like it or not, there are often issues concerning Jews which have to be fought in the public domain.

    OT: from the post. I had not heard this. Will this last?

    Canada once again backed Israel at the UN this week when it voted against the World Health Organization’s (WHO) resolution singling out only Israel for “mental, physical and environmental health” rights abuse.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government joined the Israel, the United States, Australia, Paraguay, Guatemala, Micronesia and Papua New Guinea as the only countries to vote against the resolution, which was co-sponsored by the Arab Group of States and the Palestinian delegation.

    This marks the second time since Trudeau took office in November 2015 that Canada has voted against anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations.

    Shortly after Trudeau took office, Canada voted against the six resolutions condemning Israel which were passed by the UN General Assembly

    This policy of supporting Israel at the UN began during former Liberal Prime Minister Paul Martin’s time in office and continued during the tenure of former Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a supporter ally of Israel.

    • It may last, until such time that the ummah has the numbers to tell Justin’s successor “No Mas”

    Labour is Jew hating to its marrow. And if Britain were ethnically cleansed of all Jews it would only make Labour hate Jews even more. That’s just reality. Sign up with them at your own peril but that’s what they stand for.
