... Gordon Brown urged ... Labour ... adopt fully the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism in Labour's new code of conduct.
The Labour leadership has argued that the definition, signed by 31 countries and used by many British institutions, does not allow for full criticism of Israel's treatment of Palestinians.
If Jeremy Corbyn caves into blatant, obvious evil calls such as Gordan Brown's, he'll lose me. The ground will fall out from under him.
Defining anti-Semitism to include any criticism of the government of Israel is about as inherently evil as it gets. Is it anti-Chinese to criticize Xi? Is it anti-Russian to criticize Putin? Is it anti-American to criticize Trump? You can name the leader of any nation, ethnic or otherwise, and ask the exact same question. In every case, the answer is no.
Is it anti-Chinese to criticize the Chinese government? Is it anti-Russian to criticize the Russian government? Is it anti-American to criticize the US government? You can name any nation and ask the exact same question. In every case, again, the answer is a resounding no.
If a voice claiming to be God were to tell me that criticizing Netanyahu or the government of Israel is anti-Semitism, I'd know I was hearing from the devil pretending to be God.
What is Gordon Brown's ulterior motive? He certainly has one. He can't be trusted as dogcatcher.
