Roots of Corbyn’s anti-Semitism

Dalrymple writes that Jeremy Corbyn’s

failure to condemn anti-Semitism in his party

and his

penchant for consorting in friendly fashion with extremist anti-Zionists of genocidal instincts

are cause for anxiety among British Jews to an extent not known since the time of Mosley.

No one can say for certain whether the man’s anti-Semitism is

a sincerely held prejudice or a matter of electoral calculation. (There are more than 10 times as many Muslims in Britain as Jews, and it makes electoral sense to appeal more to Muslims.)

Dalrymple reports that Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Britain’s far-Left-populist opposition party, recently mounted a defence of a mural depicting Jewish bankers playing Monopoly on the backs of naked minorities. Corbyn wrote:

Why? You are in good company. Rockerfeller [sic] destroyed Diego Viera’s [sic] mural because it includes a picture of Lenin.

Dalrymple points out that this sort of thing is

cause for anxiety among British Jews unknown since the rise — and thankfully swift fall — of Sir Oswald Mosley.
