    My mate Karim has just been arrested for his human rights activism in Egypt. Do sign and spread the petition. It is important to create a groundswell of pressure early before they bring him to trial as many human rights activists can often dissappear for years there. http://chng.it/2gyZYjdDZB

    Get fucked. I see him as an anti semitic piece of shit. Saying its wilfully misrepresentative and defamatory shows that you are part of the problem and haven't listened to any of the previous two pages of useful interjections. We've been through this. Your opinion on this subject is not wanted or important. Zero interest in any reconciliation with people who minimise antisemitism either, I have no tolerance for you. Bye

    I don't see a difference between a 'blindspot' and racism but if it is easier for left wingers to accept that he has a 'blindspot' then I suppose we have to take what we can get. I (and alot of Jews) do believe that the guy is an antisemite and I don't see a difference between his racism and that of Nigel Farage's or Boris Johnson's.

    Noone has a'blindspot' on their negative/discriminatory attitudes towards People of Colour, they are just racists.

    Anyway, I have nothing more to say as @BleakRefs has thankfully summed it up perfectly. Good on Kier Starmer for standing up for Jewish people and listening to us, long may it continue. The Stormzy thing was definitely cringe though

    That was me. Good find. I ended up getting a Futon Company one which is pretty good for the price though would definitely have considered these if I'd seen them

    Yeah we look at Corbyn’s actions through the context of his actions, words and lack of words over the last few years as our context for seeing him as an antisemite. I'll debate it with jews who disagree with me but not non jews

    As I said up thread, there is a very small minority of jews who do not agree with the overwhelming majority of jews that see corbyn as an antisemite. Jon Lansman etc are entitled to their views but it should be seen in the context of a tiny minority. Just like when corbyn went to a jewdas seder and managed to piss of the whole community by claiming that was 'outreach' (FYI I know and like lots of people in jewdas and agree with alot of what they do and say but it is incontestible that they are the opposite of representative of UK Jewry) despite the fact that they and the JVL have an almost unique viewpoint on this within the wider UK diaspora.

    None of them have been guilty of anti Semitic acts or statements other than McNichols alleged weaponising of the issue which was a problem and I assume is being dealt with by the complaints committee. The Astor statue was certainly a bit off but it was broadly agreed across all parties including the Campaign against Antisemitism that providing context about her views on the subject would be sufficient.

    I can't see how Starmer has been at all political about his pursuit of antisemitism in the party.
