When Jeremy Corbyn Supported a Democratic, Secular State & Breaking Links with Poale Zion (JLM)

On Palestine Corbyn has become a Trappist Monk

Of course everyone is entitled to change their mind.  Sometimes people even change the parties they belong to but I’m not aware of a time when Jeremy Corbyn changed his mind about support a 2 state solution in Palestine or the breaking of links with Labour Zionism. 

The primary purpose of a 2 state solution was and is to justify a never ending peace process (in Israel its known as the ‘piss process’).  As long as the Peace Process can be said to be continuing so long will there be a justification for the present Apartheid situation on the West Bank and the pretence that Gaza isn’t occupied.
Corbyn has changed his tune since becoming leader
Netanyahu made it clear during the General Election in Israel that he did not believe in a 2 State Solution.  His Ministers have made it even clear.  Tsipi Hotoveli, the Deputy Foreign Minister (there is no Foreign Minister as Netanyahu has also taken that position) has made the position of the Israeli Government crystal clear:
Tzipi Hotoveli - the religious nutcase who is Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister
‘This land is ours. All of it is ours. We expect as a matter of principle of the international community to recognise Israel’s right to build homes for Jews in their homeland, everywhere.

Zionism from its foundation has asserted Jewish sovereignty over all of the biblical Land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael), which extends up to the Litani, east to the Euphrates and south to the Nile.  There is no recognition of shared sovereignty.  As Moshe Dayan explained to a group of university graduates: 
Moshe Dayan
During the last 100 years our people are in the process of building up this country and this nation, of expansion, of getting more Jews and more settlements to expand the borders.  Let no Jew say that this is the end of the process.  Let no Jew say that we are near the end of the road. Ma’ariv, 7.7.1968.

The ‘peace process’ has only one function.  To maintain the pretence that a 2 state solution is possible and therefore to provide justification for the denial of any political or civil rights for over 4 million Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.  It is a pretence that western leaders are happy to play along with.
When you're surrounded by  New Labour sharks it's best not to feed them
But for socialists and Corbyn in particular to play along with this is despicable.  Corbyn was arrested at South Africa house once protesting Apartheid in South Africa yet he is willing to go along with Apartheid in Israel.   Because that is what the 2 State solution amounts to.
The Labour Movement Conference which Corbyn chaired in 1984
Of course the Jewish Labour Movement and assorted hypocrites will pretend they support a 2 State solution, knowing full well it won’t come about.  However they oppose any pressure upon the Israeli state, such as sanctions or BDS, to bring it about.  Sanctions on Iran, a siege of Gaza (which is the most coercive form of sanctions) is fine, but sanctions against Israel – let the heavens fall in first.
Report of LMCP Conference which Corbyn chaired - the Zionists tried to hoax the speakers that the conference had been cancelled
In the Spring of 1984 the Labour Movement Campaign for Palestine held a conference at County Hall, London when the GLC was still in existence.  The Conference was sponsored by AUEW-TASS, the engineering section of the Engineering Union, 11 MPs and Palestine Solidarity Campaign as well as the London office of the PLO.   Among the speakers were Peter Tatchell and Richard Balfe MEP (he's now Lord Balfe of the Conservative Party!).

One of its main demands was for the breaking of links between Poale Zion, the British branch of the Israeli Labour Party and the Labour Party.  Poale Zion has now changed its name to Jewish Labour Movement but it is the same creature.  Now Corbyn is happy to preside over an absurd situation where JLM is going to be ‘training’ people to recognise ‘anti-Semitism’ – which in their view is opposition to the Israeli state and Zionism (a word they don't like to use because Zionist, I mean the word, is 'abusive'.

Jeremy Corbyn was the Chair of the Conference and a very good and enthusiastic chair he was.  He was fully in support of the principle aims of the conference so I am interested to know why he has changed his mind about what, if the Trades Description Act applied to politics, would be called the Labour Friends of Apartheid Israel.
Jeremy Corbyn was one of the LMCP's original sponsors - the LMCP's platform included support for a democratic, secular state not a Jewish Apartheid state
It’s not terribly difficult to discern the strategy of Corbyn’s advisers.  Keep you head down when it comes to anything to do with Palestine.  Above all don’t say anything about how the current campaign about ‘anti-Semitism’ is really about criticism of Israel.  If you concentrate on the bread and butter issues of austerity then other things will disappear into the distance.  This is a particularly stupid strategy because the Zionists, aided by their chorus in the Mail, Guardian etc. will not let the issue of Palestine and Zionism die.  They will continue to root out ‘anti-Semitism’ in the party even if it does mean ludicrously examining every tweet for the past decade in the hope that some minor misdemeanour might be discovered.  In my own case it has taken ludicrous lengths.  

The idea is to focus on economics and ignore the political and questions of the State.  Pretend that the capitalist state is neutral as opposed to an instrument to be used by one class against another.  Leave the question of monarchy and control of the army to another time.  That is why there was such a fuss made about Corbyn singing the national anthem.  Deference to the Crown and the institutions of the State is important for Labour’s servile worshippers at the altar of the capitalist state.  The monarchy provides the icing over the division of the cake between rich and poor.  However rich or poor you are you can identify with Mrs Windsor.

Even the mild-mannered PLO representative in Britain, Manuel Hassassnian lambasted Corbyn’s silence over Palestine.  Palestinian ambassador says leaders won’t stand up to Israel for fear of being labelled anti-semitic.  Corbyn used to attend every AGM I can remember of Palestine Solidarity Campaign.  He was vocal on the oppression of the Palestinians.  Now he has taken a vow of silence as if he were a Trappist monk when it comes to Palestine.

As Hassassnian said:  ‘“Jeremy Corbyn (who) was an ardent, staunch supporter of the Palestinians and now we hardly see any statements coming from him in support of Palestine.’

Naturally ‘when the Star contacted the Labour Party for comment on Mr Hassassian’s statements’ it ‘did not receive any responses. 
Blairite clone Fabian Hamilton accuses BDS supporters of 'anti-Semitism'
Corbyn’s silence led to the ludicrous appointment of arch-Zionist Fabian Hamilton to a junior shadow foreign office minister who in the Jewish News has accused supporters of BDS of being ‘anti-Semitic’.  According to this useless New Labour clone, opposing the military and police state that is the life of Palestinians on the West Bank is ‘anti-Semitic’ and yet Corbyn appointed him despite knowing of his views.  

Corbyn has also gone along with the 'anti-Semitism' smears made against anyone those who are deemed a political threat by Labour's Blairite civil service.  He has been attacked repeatedly by the Jewish Chronicle's editor Stephen Pollard yet not once has he pointed out that Pollard acted as an apologist and worse for anti-Semitic politicians Robert Zile and Michal Kaminski, Latvian and Polish MEPs, whose anti-Semitism was only exceeded by their support for Zionism.

If Corbyn is so willing to bow down to the Zionist lobby today, he will bow down to the financial lobbies tomorrow.

Searchlight 'anti-fascist magazine joins forces with Labour’s ‘anti-Semitism’ witchhunt

Searchlight Magazine – the Racist ‘Anti-fascist’ Magazine

Searchlight Magazine, under Gerry Gable, has a long history of attacking the Palestine solidarity movement and the Palestinians.  It also has a record of never attacking or criticising Israeli Apartheid.
Searchlight's racism quickly alienated Black organisations in Britain
Searchlight's libellous editorial
In its current edition, quite bizarrely, out of the blue in an editorial, it describes me both as an anti-fascist, a Palestine solidarity activist and a ‘Jew hater’. Clearly the statement is actionable.
What has prompted its editor, Gerry Gable, to this outburst he doesn’t say.  I can only presume it is the accumulation of various resentments built up over the years.  It is probably a result of criticisms I have made over the years about Searchlight’s Zionist politics, its destabilisation of the anti-fascist movement and its spying on anti-fascists and anarchists on behalf of the secret state see e.g. The Death Agony of Searchlight Anti-Fascist Magazine - How Gerry Gable endedup defending racism in the name of anti-fascism   Gable has certainly proved sensitive in correspondence to the comparisons I drew between him and his illustrious predecessor, Maurice Ludmer.
Gable and friend
When Apartheid existed in South Africa, Searchlight didn’t hesitate to criticise the actions of the Apartheid Government, although it never mentioned the close diplomatic, economic and military relations between the two governments.
Gables memorandum to his bosses boasting of intelligence contacts and how he spied on the Left and Anarchists
When it comes to Israel Gable, whose magazine only comes out every 3 months now, since the cash cow that Hope not Hate and Nick Lowles represented have departed, sees no evil, hears no evil and says no evil.  The injunction by hundreds of Israeli rabbis that Jews should not rent apartments to Arabs is not mentioned.  [Dozens of Top Israeli Rabbis Sign Ruling to Forbid Rental of Homes to Arabs, ]  Neither the demolition of hundreds of Palestinian homes, Jewish roads in the West Bank, the official Apartheid in the West Bank (2 separate legal systems for settlers and Palestinians) or the segregated schools are worthy of mention.  No mention either of the Judaisation programmes within Israel, which bear a market similarity to the deJewification program of the Nazi party. 
Gable and his wife Sonia
In a profile of Gable he explained that he left the Communist Party in 1961 "because the party had begun to adopt an anti-Israeli line." (Jewish Chronicle  23.10.87).  This is in contrast to the previous editor of Searchlight, Maurice Ludmer, who was President of Birmingham Trades Council and a stalwart of the trade union movement.  Ludmer left the CP in 1968, because of its lack of commitment to anti-fascism and anti-racism.
Searchlight fantasy about an international fascist axis - drawn from Israeli paranoia
Despite this, Searchlight has a fondness for Stalinist politics.  How else can one explain the racist justification of Stalin's expulsion of the Tatar people because a minority of them collaborated?
During the Labour Government of 1974-80, the security establishment persuaded Home Secretary, Merlyn Rees into deporting journalist Mark Hosenball and ex-CIA agent Phil Agee.  Duncan Campbell of the New Statesman, was investigating GCHQ (then a secret installation) with Hosenball and the result was the ABC trial (Aubrey, Berry and Campbell) under the Official Secrets Act.  In November 1978 this trial collapsed with token sentences being handed out.  During the trial and the campaign that preceded it, the security services had done their best to poison the media via corrupt and tame journalists.  One such was Gerry Gable, a researcher with London Weekend Television.
In May 1977, Gable wrote one of a number of reports to his superiors at London Weekend Television regarding Phil Kelly, who became editor of Tribune and an Islington Labour councillor, was then active in the ABC Defence campaign.
Maurice Ludmer - first editor of Searchlight - an anti-imperialist unlike his successor
"He was also seen frequently... at the offices of the Vietnam Sollidarity   Campaign.  It was suggested that in either late '67 or early '68 he travelled to Cuba and was trained as was 'Carlos...  in Guerilla warfare and Espionage by the KGB."  In 1969, "Kelly went to Jordan, not, as he told people, to see the refugee amps... but to a proper Fatah training camp.  Members of the Baader Meinhoff group also attended these camps."  On a demo in London "he was seen to kick a policeman... Reports from left watchers state that he has been to Cuba, America, East Germany, Jordan, Sofia in Bulgaria...
The arrest of Campbell, Berry and Aubrey has caused a civil rights row, but according to my top level security service sources, they inform me in the strictest confidence.. Kelly is suspected of being the KGB man who reaps the goodies...I have now given the names I have acquired to be checked out by British/French security services especially the French and German connections and the south  American stuff is being checked by Geoffrey Stewart-Smith's Institute.  He has strong CIA links (and links with WACL - a fascist group - TG). I may try somebody in the Israeli Foreign Office that I know for some checks on Kelly..." 
Searchlight Conference with Zionist pressure group, the Islamaphobic Campaign Against Anti-Semitim
According to the New Statesman (15.2.80): "The wording of Mr  Gable's memo suggests clearly that he was engaged in a 2-way transaction with his security sources... The nature of the official material received and recorded by him suggests that much of it was coloured by phone-tap info and informer reports."  As Time Out remarked, the  memo caused those who Gable mentioned, like Hosenball, who had previously considered Gable as a friend, to feel betrayed" (22.2.80)  It is something that people in anti-fascist politics have also experienced.  There is reason to believe that Campbell was also being monitored by Gable.

Nine years later and Gable was up to his old tricks, this time for Channel 4's 20/20 Vision.  Gable befriended, and took advantage of, a lonely low-level civil servant in the DTI, Brian Gentleman.  One day he found himself accused, live on TV, of being a Czech agent.  However the Police refused to prosecute. Gentleman was considered a Walter Mitty character whom Gable had entrapped. The Broadcasting Complaints Commission delivered a stern rebuke. 

But it is in his effect on the anti-fascist movement that Gable and Searchlight has been most destructive, precisely because it is here that their reputations have been established. Anti Fascist Action was formed in February 1985.  Almost immediately via Searchlight/Guardian journalist David Rose a controversy was sparked over an anarchist group, Class War.

CW were never popular on the Left, their paper was particularly crude. They attracted a young, punk periphery with a low political awareness. They were the perfect foil for Gable and his security service chums. Allegations were made that their leadership were NF'ers, that racism was  endemic in CW, that they were police agent-provocateurs on demonstrations and that the NF & CW jointly planned the Stop the City demonstrations as an anti-Jewish pogrom.  CW were immediately suspended.  When a Commission of Enquiry reported, CW were exonerated but the damage to AFA had been done.  The 1976 AGM nearly broke up in turmoil.  AFA’s Report stated that "Despite the leading role of Searchlight magazine in the affair, and despite many approaches to the magazine for evidence, the sum total of material from Searchlight to the enquiry was nil.  We are bemused by Searchlight's role in this affair."  In the course of the inquiry Gable had admitted to monitoring anarchists.  For whom he didn't say.

Gables Memorandum to his bosses at London Weekend Television
From:  Gerry Gable
Date:  2 May 1977
About: Agencies
To:    Julian/Mike Braham/Barry Cox (Please keep these reports secure)

Phil Kelly was a member of the Young Liberals who in the sixties joined what was known as 'the Red Guard'. Young Liberals like Peter Hain and Peter Hellyer went against the traditional Liberal line and started campaigning along lines more akin to the Radical left. They stood out against the Vietnam War/Apartheid and for the Palestinians against the Israelis. At home they were for direct action on housing and other evils in our society.

In the first place, as I understand it, Kelly was an odd fish in the rather middle class Young Lib circles, he had a strictly working class background. He was up to his neck in various campaigns in 1967. The Biafra aid set up was one of them. He was also seen frequently during that year at the offices of the Vietnam Solidarity Campaign. It was suggested that in either late '67 or early '68 he travelled to Cuba and was trained as was 'Carlos' during the same period. Certainly Cuba held a Tri-Continental conference at that time involving many third world and Latin American states where Cuba was active in spreading their own brand of revolution. It is suggested that parallel to the conference, an extensive course of training in Guerilla warfare and Espionage took place. If the latter is true, then certainly Cuba's own Secret Service would have been aided by the KGB on the espionage side of the courses. In the early part of 1969 Kelly was seen at the Soviet Trade Mission in London.

I think that around this time he worked on the Hornsey Journal or another paper in that area, then he moved to work in the new radical press -- being a familiar face at Black Dwarf/Seven Days and later Time Out. Hellyer and some other Young Liberals got very involved with the Palestinians around this time and in the summer of 1969 Kelly went to Jordan, not, as he told people, to see the refugee camps, schools and medical aid groups, but to a proper Fatah training camp. Members of the Baader Meinhof group also attended these camps and learnt their bombing and killing skills in them. Kelly was taught firearms/explosives and went out on some treks to the Israeli border with Fatah patrols.

Around this time, after returning to London, Kelly acted as a cheer leader on several Arab demonstrations in London and during fighting in one of them he was seen to kick a policeman.

But although he seemed firmly in the left camp, a number of odd things about his attitude towards a person he knew to be hostile to the left are rather strange, on several occasions he could have blown the cover of a man who had infiltrated the Palestinians and some left groups. This man ran into him time and time again, including once at a function organised by the Cuban embassy in London. Kelly was seen on Irish Rights marches the night the Ulster office was attacked, medical aid for Vietnam, Portugese meetings and even a demo over Anguilla.

Wherever he worked on left journals he always seem to get into a position [section illegible, but probably 'had access to the'] names and address of subscribers. Reports from left watchers state that he has been to Cuba, America, East Germany, Jordan and Sofia in Bulgaria for a Peace Conference. In the early seventies he went to work in West Germany and was away for around two years, I understand that he worked as a sports reporter (he was there at the time of the Munich massacre). He also had a German girl friend whose name is either Gerde Jager, or Jaegar, the daughter of a rich lawyer. She is said to be close to SWAPO operations in Western Europe and tied up with something named 'Informist'?

Back in Britain Kelly worked at Time Out and was instrumental in introducing Mark Hosenball to stories that are part or even all of the reason for his deportation order. Around Time Out a group of Americans, Kelly, Duncan Campbell (the technology freak), plus Crispin Aubrey and John Berry (not just a former Army signals clerk, but a former member of British Military Intelligence) began to operate.

More than a year ago Kelly started to work for Interpress Services, a press agency of which he appears to be the sole employee in this country.

Even some of the left watchers here thought that this agency was set up at the time of a Third World Conference held in Colombo in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago and that in some way it is connected with the Yugoslav State Press Agency. However our checks reveal that it was set up in Italy in 1968 as a press co-operative and the directors are South Americans an Italians, one of the original people before Kelly at this end was John Rettie -- a man I still have to check out but was in some KGB scandal in Moscow some years ago.

The last return made by the co-op shows an annual turn-over of a quarter of a million pounds sterling, although it precedes Kelly's joining them (at least officially) salaries are shown as only two thousand per annum.

Hosenball, who to my knowledge was always keen to meet any new contacts, told me that he had refused to meet Kelly's contacts in Germany but would say no more. He was also prepared to tell me that the co-op was, as he understood it, set up by some Chilean Christian Democrats who in more recent times dropped out to be replaced by the Iraquis, although no signs of this appear on the company house records. Hosenball is frightened to tell me more about Kelly and it is almost certain that Kelly could blackmail Hosenball to keep silent. Since the Agee/Hosenball expulsion notices were issued, Kelly is often being seen more and more running round organising things. When Hosenball made it clear that he did not wish to be used as political cannon fodder, Kelly wrote an attack on him that appeared in the 'Leveller', a radical magazine.

This is not all that Kelly has done for the 'Leveller', he has also produced material on West Germany for them about the trials of the Terrorist groups.

The arrest of Campbell/Berry and Aubrey has caused a civil rights row, but according to my top level security service sources, they inform me in the strictest confidence that for about four years Campbell, Berry and Kelly and others have been systematically gathering top level security material. Campbell, who claims to have only an interest in technological matters in as far as the state is involved, had done four years detailed research into the whole structure of the other side of not only our Intelligence services but those of other NATO countries. He has also gone to people who work on top security contracts and started off by asking them about open commercial work their companies do and then gradually asked them for information on top secret work, including that on under-water detection hardware, which he clearly knows is beyond the pale.

Politically it appears that the group have no one political guiding light or line, but Kelly is suspected of being the KGB man who reaps the goodies gathered by people who are possibly as disapproving of the KGB as they are of the CIA. [Two words illegible but probably 'Other teams'] like this have been operating in France and Sweden. (Agee has been in contact with the Swedish set up.) The security services feel that once the real nature of this case begins to emerge they expect people like Jonathan Aitken will fade away fast. The security service accepts that a number of decent people have been signed up to support these people on civil rights grounds and they also unofficially accept all the short-comings of the act that they have been held under, but they say they are sure this has gone well beyond the bounds of Press Investigation.

Hosenball, although supposedly having his differences with Kelly, was party to a strange chat between Kelly and Steve Weisman at Granada's Christmas party. They were going through a list of contacts and what Hosenball's reaction would be be if he were asked about them. I could not catch the names but when one name came up all three of them seemed very keen to keep it out of the hearing.

Hosenball got extremely angry with Malcolm Southam of World In Action when asked about a man named Karl Von Metre, thought to be an American living in Paris, and would not talk about him Hosenball's Paris trips are a mystery.

He told me two years ago that the reasons for his Paris visits were to go through files taken from a Portugese office of an extreme right wing group that used a press agency as a cover. At the time of the army take over in Portugal they had been seized and taken to Paris. However, my own investigation showed that the files were not in Paris at all had had never been taken out of Portugal, so why lie? His contact in Paris is Frederick Laurent, a young man who works for the left wing paper 'Liberation' and who lives in very grand style in a huge Paris apartment.

When Hosenball and Kelly had hold of the Crozier material they were very keen not to check out right wing connections but to trace phone numbers they felt belonged to Secret Service establishments etc. Hosenball also went to Spain, I think to track down one of the people mentioned in the Robert Moss letters, but despite all this research most of what they got was not appearing in print anyway. Kelly was not happy about Searchlight using the documents and I think Hosenball, who had done work for Searchlight on various occasions, felt embarassed by his attitude.

Kelly's current girl friend is Dorothy Jones who works for the People's Press Service or News Service, a sort of Agitprop outfit. Kelly moved into a house in Hemmingford Road, Islington, some time last winter. He shares it with Richard Fletcher who is on the London Co-op Education Committee, (strong links with East Germany) this is at 104 Hemmingford Road, N7.

I went to the house one dark winter night just after they had moved in. I was with Mark Hosenball and the reason for our visit was to get some more photocopies of the Moss letters.

When we arrived, a man who I thought must Fletcher came to the door. The building is a shop, basement and upper part, it was in a bad state of disrepair and the man was plastering or something like that. He said to Mark 'there is a caucus meeting, Phil's up top'. Mark told me to hang on and ran upstairs to the top floor. Being a nosey bugger I followed and in the top floor front room were about seven or eight men, no women, all seated on cushions on the floor with no centre light.

They were a mixed age group. I didn't recognise any of them and they did not seem to know me. Kelly looked at me staring in over Hosenball's shoulder and leapt up and pushed us out of the room. He said to Mark in a low voice 'Why did you bring him here?' and Mark waffled on about not being able to contact him in advance and I needed the letters that very night as Searchlight was going to press on the next day. Kelly took us to the basement and produced the papers and then ushered us out as quickly as possible.

I have now given the names I have acquired to be checked out by British/French security services, especially the French and German connections and the South American stuff is being checked by Geoffrey Stewart-Smith's institute. He has strong CIA links. I may try somebody in the Israeli Foreign Office that I know for some checks on Kelly. It is now a time of waiting for feed-back and also further checks here.

I have attached a number of documents including a transcript of Kelly's interview with World in Action. It goes without saying that I would like this kept strictly secret.

Labour’s ‘anti-Semitism’ witch-hunt lets the cat out of the Bag

Calling for the Deselection of an MP is now a Disciplinary Offence

Obtaining the reasons for my suspension from the Labour Party has been like drawing teeth .  

Although they have been happy to leak information to the Tory press, Labour’s witch hunters have been less keen to inform me what it is I have been accused of, as you can see from the correspondence below.   

Islam  - Religion of Bigotry one of the pamphlets on Paul Bogdanor site
Labour’s disciplinary procedures bear a remarkable similarity to Alice in Wonderland and Franz Kafka’s Trials.  [See Ian McNicol Restages Franz Kafka’s TheTrial ] 
Now however the witch-hunters’ hand has been revealed.  Gregson has now openly asked me if I have called for the deselection of Peter Kyle, the New Labour MP for Hove who supports the involvement of private companies in the NHS and who supported the bombing of Iraq.  Of course the answer is yes but is it a crime in the Labour Party now to support deselection?

The first I knew what I had been accused of was when these articles appeared in The Times & Telegraph April 2nd
Harry Gregson, Labour’s acting SE England organiser is a run of the mill apparatchik.  His level of political consciousness can best be discerned by the fact that he celebrated the 90th birthday of a woman who has been on state benefits for 90 years whilst telling the rest of us to tighten our belts!  The monarchy is, as Shelley observed, the string that ties the robbers’ bundle.
Gregson sources Paul Bogdanor a regular contributor to the site - an example of the virulent Islamaphobia on this site is a pamphlet by Pamela Geller 
Gregson’s idea of an investigation is to google my name and see what comes up.  It would appear that no sewer is polluted enough for him to immerse himself in it in the hope that he might find a few nuggets amongst the detreitus.

Gregson sources one of his quotes regarding an anti-Semite called Gilad Atzmon, who I have heavily criticised on this blog and elsewhere, to a Paul Bogdanor.  Bogdanor writes for the site which features Jihadi Watch and features the above pamphlet from one of the most extreme anti-Muslim racists, Pamela Geller.  Geller is basically a fascist  but that does not stop Gregson sourcing from such people.  This is how she is described on her Wiki page:
She is a supporter of the English Defence League (EDL) saying: "I share the EDL's goals ... We need to encourage rational, reasonable groups that oppose the Islamisation of the west."[29] In June 2013, Geller was scheduled to speak at an EDL rally,[7] but was barred from entering Britain by a Home Office ruling that describes her as having established "anti-Muslim hate groups".[13]
Some of the comments date back years, part of long-forgotten debates.  They have been hauled out, stripped from their context and selected in order to provide a pretext for my expulsion.   The chances of Gregson or the other apparatchiks even understanding the context of an ongoing discussion with Gilad Atzmon, the holocaust denying jazzman are about zero.

If Gregson, Stolliday and McNicol had a shred of honesty, then they would say ‘we disagree with your opinions, you are a socialist and an anti-Zionist and we are therefore expelling you.’  But these people are fundamentally dishonest and instead resort to trying to find the residue of long forgotten conversations, fragments and comments in order to make a case.

The original allegations related to anti-Semitism and Ireland.  Now that they have been deemed insufficient, Gregson has been scurrying around in Islamaphobic sites trying to find something else to go on.

It’s doubtful these Holocaust-mongers have a clue what the deportations were, or of the horrors that attended them. I remember my late mother describing her deportation. She was in the Warsaw Ghetto. The survivors of the Ghetto Uprising, about 30,000 Jews, were deported to Maijdanek concentration camp. They were herded into railroad cars. My mother was sitting in the railroad car next to a woman who had her child. And the woman – I know it will shock you – the woman suffocated her infant child to death in front of my mother. She suffocated her child, rather than take her to where they were going. That’s what it meant to be deported. To compare that to someone posting a light-hearted, innocuous cartoon making a little joke about how Israel is in thrall to the U.S., or vice versa…it’s sick. What are they doing? Don’t they have any respect for the dead? All these desiccated Labour apparatchiks, dragging the Nazi holocaust through the mud for the sake of their petty jostling for power and position. Have they no shame?

My offences were the following comments:

Gregson goes to the far-Right Zionist and warmonger's site Harry's Place to dig up a quote from the right-wing Times columnist, Oliver Kamm.

What I said was that in the context of a war between the IRA and the British Government then clearly the Commander in Chief of the British Army, Margaret Thatcher was clearly a legitimate target in the eyes of the IRA.  

Despite the froth of the mass media and the Tories, my memory of these times was that ordinary working-class people said that it was a pity they didn’t get her.  This was during the Miners’ strike and that was the gist of the comments that miners I worked with in Brighton uttered.  

Given the fact that Thatcher was the main supporter of General Pinochet of Chile in his fight against extradition to Spain, a man who had thousands of workers, socialists and democrats tortured to death, and that she personally ordered the sinking of the Belgrano with the loss of around 750 men, when it was sailing outside of and away from the Argentinian exclusion zone, I wouldn’t have lost any sleep if she had died.
Jihad Watch - virulently racist section of site that Bogdanor posts on
More publications on Bogdanor's site
This is a good example of a comment wrenched out of all context.  It has been sourced from someone called Paul Bogdanor, son of the more sober Oxford constitutionalist Vernon Bogdanor.  Bogdanor is belongs to the fascist and Islamophobic wing of the Zionist movement.  Besides writing virulently anti-communist nonsense he believes that in the second world war Hitler and Stalin were no different.  He posts on which has a section ‘Jihad Watch’ a fanatically anti-Muslim page.  
More Islamaphobic rubbish
The surrounding comments make it clear that I was arguing with Gilad Atzmon, an anti-Semitic jazz player, trying to persuade him to abandon his move towards a holocaust denial position.  This was in the context of a meeting of his, at the SWP’s Bookmarx bookshop which Jews Against Zionism picketed.  The fuller correspondence is:
Dare I say it, some of your remarks re the holocaust were spot on re the Zionist collaboration with the Nazis.  And that is the point anti-Zionists should make rather than flirting with holocaust denial, or in Shamir's case being a full blooded exponent.

It is therefore dishonest to post the piece below suggesting that I am ‘now experiencing a radical change of heart.’  The radical change of heart, if anyone’s was your own in disagreeing with Shamir’s views on Auschwitz, especially after having praised Paul Eisen’s holocaust denial tract, Holocaust Wars, as a ‘great text’.  If someone who, like you, has flirted with holocaust denial, has retracted, then it would be wrong to pretend otherwise.  That is called honesty.  However just to clarify, for the avoidance of any further confusion on your part, if you disagree with Israel Shamir re the existence of Auschwitz as an extermination centre then your idea is spot on.  If you agree with Paul Eisen about the Nazi holocaust or go wittering on about Jewish power then your ideas are their usual turgid nonsense. 
I trust that even you now understand.

Tony Greenstein

Gregson is under the impression that Zionism was a movement opposed to anti-Semitism.  This is an understandable belief given that Zionists shout ‘anti-Semitism’ at the drop of a hat.  What Gregson doesn’t appreciate is that Zionist screams of ‘anti-Semitism’ have nothing to do with anti-Semitism and everything to do with support for Israel.  Which is why the incident that started the latest bout of media attacks on ‘anti-Semitism’ at Oxford University Labour Club was triggered by that club’s support for Oxford Israel Apartheid Week.  OULC have been bludgeoned now into accept the Zionist discourse about anti-Semitism, as Naz Shah has, but a lie is still a lie.
Academic article describing Zionist anti-Semitism - according to Gregson agreeing with it is 'anti-Semitic'

Hopefully the article Classic zionism and modern anti-semitism: Parallels and influences (1883-1914) by Jacques Doron from the Journal of Israeli History, no. 8, 1.9.83. will help in Harry's education.

In the article, which is from a Zionist academic journal, Doron observes, in respect of Zionist anti-Semitism, that It cannot be denied that the Jewish self-criticism so widespread among the German Zionist intelligentsia often seemed dangerously similar to the plaints of the German anti-Semites.’ p.171.

Zionism was founded upon what was called the ‘negation of the Diaspora’, literally a hatred of Jewish existence outside Palestine.  Zionism was a blut and bloden political movement that believed that the Jewish Question could only be resolved when Jewish feet were planted on the soil of Palestine.  Jews had a mystical blood and racial attachment to each other via the land of Palestine. Their existence outside Palestine was unnatural, abnormal.  They therefore went as far as to accept what the anti-Semites said about the faults of the Jews.  When Arthur Ruppin, Father of Jewish Land Settlement (and also the Father of Jewish Sociology) in Palestine, who was also a member of the Zionist Executive was accused of being an anti-Semite, he didn’t take offence.  Quite the contrary:
When Ruppin's friend called him "an anti-Semite," he was not at all put off by the epithet and retorted spontaneously: "I have already established here [in his diary] that I despise the cancers of Judaism more than does the worst anti-Semite." (p. 186 entry Ruppin's Diaries 4.8.93.)  
Arthur Ruppin, member of Zionist Executive and Father of Jewish Land Settlement

Ruppin’s view of the famous Dreyfuss trial, where France’s aristocratic and military caste sought to pin the label of treason on a Jewish officer, as a means of rolling back the gains of Emancipation for French Jewry as a whole, was that: 
Ruppin was proud to be called an anti-Semite
‘In Paris a captain by the name of Dreyfuss has been arrested on charges of spying:  he is a Jew.  In Berlin a major usury trial is taking place.  Naturally the accused are Jews, and so it goes on.  I fear that up till now I have had too good an opinion of my people and perhaps the anti-Semites are right in their charges after all!… Even the gravest punishment is not too harsh for this Dreyfus, since not he alone but all the rest of us must suffer for his guilt.’  (p. 187)
An example of Jewish anti-Semitism - Pinhas Rosenbluth describes Jews outside Palestine as 'vermin'

Doron speaks of Ruppin’s ‘revulsion toward the Jewish character and its physical embodiment.’ p. 191.  Ruppin however was not alone.  You are spoilt for choice when it comes to anti-Semitic statements by Zionists.  Perhaps the most anti-Semitic of all comments was that by Pinhas Felix Rosenbliith (who was destined to become Israel’s first Minister of Justice .  He described Palestine "an institute for the fumigation of Jewish vermin."   As Doron notes, ‘a perusal of the Zionist sources reveals a wealth of charges against the Diaspora Jew, some of which are so scathing that the generation that witnessed Auschwitz has difficulty comprehending them.’

Isaac Deutscher, the biographer of  Trotsky, summed up the attitude of most Jewish workers to Zionism when he wrote:
It should be remembered that the great majority of East European Jews were, up to the outbreak of the second World War} opposed to Zionism... the most fanatical enemies of Zionism were precisely the workers, those who spoke Yiddish... they were the most determined opponents of the idea of an emigration from East Europe to Palestine... in the idea of an evacuation, of an exodus from the countries in which they, had their homes and in which their ancestors had lived for centuries, the anti-Zionists saw an abdication of their rights, a surrender to anti-Semitism. To them anti-Semitism seemed to triumph in Zionism, which recognised the legitimacy and the validity of the old cry ‘Jews get out!' The Zionists were agreeing to get out. [Isaac Deutscher, 'The Non Jewish Jew ' & Other Essays-The Russian  Revolution and the Jewish Question' pp.66/7]
4.              Gregson demonstrates the idiocy and stupidity of this witch-hunt when he says  ‘On top of the above that were raised in the original complaint, I would also like to ask you about the following allegations:

Why you might ask, should this be the subject of a disciplinary investigation?  It is a fact that Israel has squandered the reparations money from Germany meant for the holocaust survivors for holocaust education, monuments etc.  Large scale fraud has been perpetrated by the Jewish Claims Conference, the major organisation involved in claiming the money.  It is an open secret that the Israeli government is as parsimonious as it can be.
No doubt this article from Ha'aretz is also 'anti-Semitic'

‘It was hard not to be moved by the plea for financial support made to the Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee in April by Dora Roth on behalf of her fellow Holocaust survivors. “What have you done with the money? What? The sight on television of Holocaust survivors who don’t have heat in the winter, who don’t have money for food is to your shame. Permit us to die in dignity.”
Gregson believes its 'anti-Semitic' to tell the truth about how Israel treats the Holocaust survivors who have subsidised the Israeli state

Or perhaps Gregson didn’t get to read another article in Israel’s Ha’aretz newspaper Israel Is Waiting for Its Holocaust Survivors to Die   Perhaps Gregson would like to summon the ‘anti-Semitic’ writer of the above article for an investigation too!  I should point out that the person who wrote the above article, Amos Rubin, is a childhood survivor of the holocaust but I doubt that will stop humourless and dessicated Labour bureaucrats and the Zionist Jewish Labour Movement who are happy to use the holocaust to try and undermine support for Palestine in the Labour Party.

5.  Another charge is that ‘you described another Labour MP as 'Tory Boy' My description of Steve Reed in It is Time for Unity in the Campaign Against theWitchhunt - Momentum has to support all those suspended not just its Vice Chair Jacqueline Walker was motivated after reading the Report in Inside Croydon Labour suspends Croydon Central secretary over Hitler tweet.  Steve Reed is even wearing a blue rosette!
‘Last week, Lambeth South MP Steve Reed OBE, a deputy chair of Progress, the Blairite party-within-a-party, seemed to suggest that something was underway when he referred to “internal disciplinary matters” in a tweet regarding White’s situation. This was long before the Croydon party official had received any notification that he was subject to such a procedure.  This is not the first time that Progress has conducted a witch-hunt against socialists in Croydon.’
6.              - That you acted in an un-comradely manner to Labour members and referred to the investigation set up by Baroness Royal as 'racist'

My tweet describing former Hove MP Ivor Caplin as a war criminal
Yes I probably did refer to the report of Baroness Royall as ‘racist’.  Possibly the reason is that it is part of a racist agenda which conflates Jews and Zionists as equivalent.  It is a report designed to label as ‘anti-Semitic’ Oxford University Labour Club’s support for Israel Apartheid Week and to rehabilitate the Zionist Jewish Labour Movement.  However the url refers to another tweet describing the former Hove MP Ivor Caplin, a former Defence Minister at the time of the Iraq War as a war criminal! 
An example of racist & Islamaphobic pictures on the Twitter page of Zionist that I called out

7.              That you use 'Zio' /'Zio idiots'/'Zionist scum' as a insults repeatedly on 

twitter  yes I confess I do use the label with Islamaphobes!  Is there a problem with that?

There are 3 more allegations:

8.              That you evoked the Final Solution in a letter to the Labour Party.

9.              That you referred to the Brighton Labour Party as acting in a racist way. 

10.              That you advocated the de-selection of Labour MP Peter Kyle on twitter.

None of these are sourced, but it’s nice to know that calling for the removal of Peter Kyle is now an offence meriting disciplinary action!

In practice, the Israeli government is waiting for the Holocaust survivors to die off within 20 years so that it will no longer have to pay their benefits.

Israel Is Waiting for Its Holocaust Survivors to Die

There are three different days committed to remembering the Holocaust, but during the rest of the year, the Israeli government only thinks of Holocaust survivors as a financial burden.
Amos Rubin Feb 06, 2013

The Chief Rabbinate of Palestine in 1946 declared the tenth day of the Hebrew month of Tevet a "general day of Kaddish" for dead Jews whose gravesites are unknown. The date was traditionally a fast day observed by Jews to commemorate the beginning of Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II's siege of Jerusalem. Its modern significance was added not long after the end of World War II, when the horrible scale of the destruction of Europe's Jews – 6 million people, constituting one third of the continent's pre-war Jewish population – became clear.  Today, only the members of Israel's national religious Jewish community preserve the tradition. The ultra-Orthodox, as usual, boycott commemorations on the day because of "the Zionists."

On March 3, 1951, Israel's Knesset set aside the 27th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan, when the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising broke out (April 19, 1943 in the Gregorian calendar), as Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day. On the eve of the day, all places of entertainment in Israel are closed by law and mourning and commemoration services are held at Israel's national cemetery on Mount Herzl and the museums at Kibbutz Lohamei Hageta'ot (the Ghetto Fighters' Kibbutz), Kibbutz Yad Mordechai, Kibbutz  Tel Yitzhak and Nir Galim.

On the other hand, the United Nations declared the day the Red Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp (January 27, 1945) International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day every year, UN member countries across the globe come together to mourn the tragedy that led to the death of 6 million Jews, 3 million Romani and 1 million genetically "defective" Germans.

That totals three days a year, but what about the other 362 days? The number of concentration camp survivors, anti-Nazi partisans and Jews who hid in forests and Christians' homes now living in Israel is 233,700, according to the Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute. Of these individuals, dozens die every day. Apparently, the heartrending stories of 80-to-90-year-olds struggling for the basic means of survival that appear in the media every year do not bother the officials entrusted with their welfare in the Finance Ministry. That these survivors must choose between buying their medicines or food or that they don't have a source of heating in the winter doesn't seem to stop the State of Israel from denying them substantive assistance by relying on a variety of bureaucratic clauses. Israel even pettily denies Holocaust survivors the few benefits they are entitled to, when medical committees alter their disability evaluations in a manipulative way. Thus, a committee determines a Holocaust survivor has a 69 percent level of disability, not 70 percent, so the state can save NIS 500 on the recipient's benefits payment. In practice, the Israeli government is waiting for the Holocaust survivors to die off within 20 years so that it will no longer have to pay their benefits.

In 1953, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer signed a reparations agreement, entrusting the State of Israel to handle payments to Holocaust survivors.  Looking back, you could argue that Ben-Gurion was right to transfer survivors' reparations payments toward strengthening the young State of Israel. Yet it was only decades later that this injustice done to Holocaust survivors – including my parents, Auschwitz survivors Eliyahu and Rachel Rubin – was corrected. Only then did they start receiving reparations payments from the treasury.

Several Israeli banks hold the property of Jews murdered in the Holocaust but create obstacles to prevent their heirs from receiving their due. Several years ago, Haaretz published an estimate that deposits made in Israeli banks in the decades before 1945 are not worth what they should be today. Israeli banks shamelessly benefit from the funds of the dead, those without heirs and even those with them. With respect to the German and Swiss banks that took Holocaust victims money, there is the biblical quote, "Have you murdered and also inherited?" In Israel it is just, "Have you inherited?" It is saddening to see how the Jews who determine government priorities in our country, which was founded on the ruins of the Holocaust and thanks to the tremendous Zionist endeavor, are in practice waiting for Holocaust survivors to die.

Dear Mr Gregson,
I sent you the following reply.  Yes I am happy to see you at a mutually agreed date but please supply everything that you possess by way of allegations.  I have in any event applied via a subject access request for the full information so there is no reason for you to hang on to it since you will have to disclose everything.
Full disclosure is normal practice in both the civil and criminal courts, employment tribunals etc. so I am finding it increasingly difficult to know why you are incapable of following what is accepted practice in all courts.  It is in your interests to make full disclosure since otherwise any decision that is made will be open to legal challenge.
Whilst happy that you have informed me as to the 3 central quotes at the centre of my case I need to obviously know what was the surrounding conversation.  I assume that you have this. 
Assuming you agree to further disclosure then please supply with some dates.
Please acknowledge this reply as the previous email clearly got lost in the ethernet.

Dear Mr Gregson,
At last, after nearly two months of being suspended, I have finally been given a glimmer of the reasons as to why I have been suspended.
I would of course like to receive chapter and verse, i.e. date, time and surrounding discussions, as to when these quotations were allegedly said, so that I can see what the context of these remarks were.  In other words the full body of evidence surrounding what are bare quotations.
I will receive this anyway via the Subject Access Request that I have submitted so it would make sense on your part to send me the full information.  I cannot think of any reason whatsoever to withhold such information from me.  If this were a court of law they would grant full disclosure without a second's though unless you are claiming national security considerations!

Dear Mr Greenstein,
Thank you for your letter. You were suspended from the Labour Party as it was alleged you breached Labour Party membership rules by acting in a way that was grossly detrimental to the Party. This specifically related to the comments below that you were alleged to have made:
- 'The attack on Thatcher by the IRA was obviously legitimate. She was a military target'
- 'Zionism is a Jewish version of anti-Semitism'
- 'spot on re the Zionist collaboration with the Nazis.'
These comments were the trigger for your suspension and will form part of the interview. However you will also have the opportunity to respond to any other evidence that I have discovered throughout the investigation so far.
Please can you let me know if you are now prepared to meet for an interview? I can come to Brighton if necessary.

I will be conducting interviews with witnesses and I will also need a time when you are available for an interview. You are entitled to bring along a 'silent friend', as am I, they must be a Party member and they cannot intervene in the interview in any way. Please provide me with the name of your ‘silent friend’ prior to the interview so I can ensure they meet these requirements.
