The Left's Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Anti-Semitism

כריכה קדמית
Biteback Publishing, 2018 - 413 עמודים
An updated edition of the book which looks a the problem of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, now with two new chapters detailing events since its first publication in 2016, and new academic research into the origins of this phenomenon. Relations between British Jews and the left are in crisis, a situation reaching its nadir when the Labour Party was forced to suspend Naz Shah and Ken Livingstone over comments they made about Israel. Yet, until the 1980s, the British left was broadly pro-Israel. This change did not happen by chance: political activists made it happen. This book reveals who they were, why they chose Palestine and how they sold their cause to the rest of the left. It explains why more people will march in the streets of today's Britain to protest against Israel than any other country. It is about the anti-Israel left of Jeremy Corbyn, Ken Livingstone and George Galloway, born out of anti-apartheid campaigns and now allies itself with Islamist extremists who demand Israel's destruction. This anti-Israel fervour has anti-Semitic consequences
