Labor, Antisemitism, and Israelopathy
In an effort to stave off the constant criticism of antisemitism, the British Labor Party has produced a a new page about antisemitism. On first glance, it appears to be very good.
But you have to think about what is not being said.
There is no reference to the fact of Israel being the historic homeland of the Jewish People. Thus, it still feeds the Israelopathic libel of Israel being a colonial project.
Furthermore, the only thing that is off-limits is comparing Israel to Nazi Germany. But having double-standards for Israel compared to other countries is apparently not a problem.
Finally, note that while it says that Labor supports a two-state solution, it doesn't say what those two states are; this is like when the Palestinians talk about a two-state solution, but what they mean is one Palestinian state and one mixed but not Jewish state.
All in all, this page is reflective of an attempt to try to divorce hatred of Jews from hatred of Israel. That's why is so important to focus on the evils of Israelopathy rather than the evils of antisemitism.
