Ruth Smeeth, BICOM and Labour Friends of Israel.

Luciana Berger and Ian Austin join the attack on Jeremy Corbyn.

Ruth Smeeth’s past connection with BICOM renders her ‘outrage’ over anti semitism in the party null and void. BICOM is an extreme pro Israel think tank and have been prominent in a previous scandal involving Conservative MP, Liam Fox, who was forced to resign but is now back in government. Typically for politicians, resigning from a government role is almost always a temporary status. The purpose of the outrage isn’t to highlight a particular problem, it’s to blame Jeremy Corbyn for it. This isn’t an attack on racism, it’s an attack on Corbyn’s concern for and empathy with the Palestinian people.  BICOM and other pro Israeli lobby groups will not accept high profile political support for Palestinians.

Along with Smeeth, Bergman and Austin, another vocal critic of Corbyn was Joan Ryan, who lied about a bogus anti semitic attack by a Labour Party member, which would not have been uncovered but for a secret investigation into the UK Israel lobby being conducted at the time of the claim. Ryan lied and has to my knowledge never apologised to the victim of her smear.

These Corbyn critics are Israel ‘firsters’, when they should be looking after their own constituents, not exaggerating anti semitic feelings in the UK.

This vendetta on Corbyn is designed to remove him. Israel supporters see his leadership a threat, merely because he advocates a fair and peaceful solution to the Israeli/Palestine conflict. How many of them have stood up in Parliament to condemn the killing of dozens by IDF snipers in Gaza? That’s right, the killings occurred in Gaza, not on Israeli (albeit stolen) land. Try to find one ‘Friend of Israel’ that condemns the brutality of the IDF operations in Gaza. You won’t.

This most recent assault on Corbyn’s leadership is clearly organised and well planned as the second phase, the first having failed. These MP’s are treacherous, ignoring their primary concern, the UK and the people in it, for a foreign entity. Corbyn has throughout his career been supportive of all minorities. He is the sort of MP that should be revered not relentlessly smeared.

The Labour Friends of Israel promotes divided loyalties.

Their concern is for Israel, as it’s title suggests. You will find that the vast majority of these MP’s are severe critics of Corbyn. Is this coincidence? Make your own mind up.

  1. Hi
    I have something on MuralGate if you want. Please email. I do have an academic page at but its a little abstract,

    • Chris, I’ve just managed to read your article on Muralgate and it’s magnificent. It really needs to be widely read to understand the very calculated and organised methods being used by Zionists to protect Israel. However, this is much more than that. Whether we like Corbyn or not, while he is leader of the Labour Party, we at least have a choice. The people involved in the smear campaign aren’t just killing Palestinians, they are killing what is left of our democracy and should be exposed.

      • Thanks DD,
        For a week or so I have started to tweet it. I am on ChrisFriel7. And Muralgaga is on my academic site page Chris S Friel. Rightly or wrongly I have not hidden it from those concerned, so Clare Quilty aka Ben Reed has (a) spent a long time looking at my profile – which is nothing to do with Palestine ! and (b) made @CQuilty52 vanish
