Jim,
Totally impossible to calculate as Israel has declared that 'New Antisemitism' is opposition to the State of Israel and is regarding all criticism of Israeli policy as "opposition", which it is not.

We were discussing incidents of hate crime, so your claim is irrelevant as well as being completely false.

The few details of Labour so-called antisemitism that have emerged ar criticism of Israel and not the Jews.

Not true.

some self-described supporters of the Jewish People didn't invent Parliamentary pacts of silence

They didn't.

It would also helpp if hypocrites who go ballistic at ny criticism of Israel, had the balls to condemn such 'Jewish pacts of silence' despite the fact that the culprit is one of his gang

No-one here are "hypocrites who go ballistic at ny criticism of Israel.
No-one but you has ever suggested a "Jewish pact of silence" and I regard it, like you comparing of Israel to Nazi Germany, as anti-Semitic.

Bobad, Even using your figures, the chances of someone of the Jewish faith being the victim of a hate crime, is approximately one in five hundred thousand.

Whilst not seeking to condone such crime we do need to get things in perspective that is one in half a million.

Good grief you have far more chance of being shot in the States.

On the left, black people are usually allowed to define what's racism; women can define sexism; Muslims are trusted to define Islamophobia. But when Jews call out something as antisemitic, leftist non-Jews feel curiously entitled to tell Jews they're wrong, that they are exaggerating or lying or using it as a decoy tactic – and to then treat them to a long lecture on what anti-Jewish racism really is.

"Interesting figures."
Totally impossible to calculate as Israel has declared that 'New Antisemitism' is opposition to the State of Israel and is regarding all criticism of Israeli policy as "opposition", which it is not.
The main victims of Israel's redefinition of antisemitism are the Jewish people who are blamed indirectly by Israelis for their ethnic cleansing policy - that is the inevitable result of claiming all criticism of its policies are "antisemitic".
The few details of Labour so-called antisemitism that have emerged ar criticism of Israel and not the Jews.
Of course, it would be helpful if some self-described supporters of the Jewish People didn't invent Parliamentary pacts of silence (the classic antisemitic slur, dating back to the Nazis is "a Jewish Plot")
It would also helpp if hypocrites who go ballistic at ny criticism of Israel, had the balls to condemn such 'Jewish pacts of silence' despite the fact that the culprit is one of his gang

Interesting figures.

To put them in context we need to understand that the population of the USA is in excess of 300,000,000.

There were 1354 reported hate crimes according to the FBI figures.

I am NOT suggesting those crimes should be overlooked but in the great scheme of things they are rare.

Mr Carter, I would suggest that you look up what is involved in "colonising" any lump of land. You could then tell me how a country of less than 18 million people could "colonise" a massive land mass inhabited by over 350 million people. On the particular subject of "India" it did not become a country until 1947 prior to that it consisted of areas directly administered by the United Kingdom, which were collectively called British India, and those ruled by indigenous rulers, but under British tutelage or paramountcy, and called the princely states - India was NEVER a British colony, between 1600 and 1858 the British Government only interest in India was supporting any policy that ensured the best interests of the Honourable East India Company (A trading organisation). It was only after the Indian Mutiny of 1857 that the British Government stepped in.

Please do keep it up, it lets everyone know that you have run out of argument and steam - best you go look out one of your Hawaiian shirts, get on your bike and peddle down to the pub smelling wild flowers on the way - might require a "Wide Load" escort though which must detract a little from the pleasure of it.

As a matter of fact, irrelevant though it is to the point, I have no axe to grind at all over the targeting of one religious group over another. It's all equally disgusting. I see that you've gone from unqualified support to "seeming" to support. His assertion was a matter of quantity. You make assertions of that nature if you have the numbers to back them.

Can't say I recall ever discussing hate crimes in the USA.

The FBI "figures" you do provide cannot be put into context as we don't know the numbers of Islamic or Jewish people in the States.

If the population of Jewish people were 665 and 664 reported hate crime against themselves that would be a highly significant figure, If there were 6.64 million Jewish people that figure of reported hate crime becomes less significant.

That figure could also be distorted by one person making a high number of reports.

So many variables, none of which Bobad cites.

I don't know about anyone else but I would consider that Bobad has an axe to grind.

FBI figures state that the rise in anti-Islamic hate crimes has been something in the order of 67% up from 154 reported instances to 257 - Meanwhile anti-Semitic hate crimes rose by 9% in the same period to 664 reported incidents. UK statistics are worse - look them up Huffington Post.

Yes that assertion by bobad does stretch credulity, there is far, far too much religiously motivated hate crime in the world, against people of a variety of religions, but I would have thought that such crimes in South Asia rather outweighed those in the Middle East, if only because of the very large populations there.

But as far as anti-semitism goes, the parallel between the UK and France is of course that anti-semitism, like islamphobia, is largely the preserve of the political right.

Anti-Semitism and hate crimes directed against Jews are a growing problem in the world, in fact Jews are targeted more than all other religious groups combined in most of the western world today. In the UK alone hate crimes against Jewish people are at record levels having risen by more than a third from previous years.

Timeline: Labour's anti-Semitism crisis

February 16 2016

Oxford University Labour Club co-chair resigns after claiming that its members have "some kind of problem with Jews" and sympathise with terrorist groups like Hamas.

March 6

Two former shadow Cabinet ministers, Michael Dugher MP and Rachel Reeves MP, accuse Jeremy Corbyn of trying to "bury" the Party's problem with anti-Semitism after refusing to publish an investigation into harassment of Jewish students at Oxford University.

The two I have left are really good quality ones. One is made by Fat Face. I would not usually pay their prices but I think this was from a charity shop! The other I got in America. Make is Columbia who I usually associate with hiking/outdoor gear. Skipton market had some good ones at one time but not for the last couple of years. Charity shops are sometimes a good source and you are also helping the environment by recycling. Should appeal to sandal reading hippies...

Trouble with Hawaiian shirts is (a) I don't want to spend a fortune on 'em, (b) the internet is awash with suspiciously cheap ones. Where to buy?

Bell tent, Teribus? As ever, your imagination let's you down. Not a bad attempt but clichéd. 2/10 for effort.

To be honest, Steve,it was an unfair challenge. He could never measure up to anything of mine :-)

I know a safe place for you and your raggle taggle band Stevieboy, the "Alternative Facts" thread, you can sit there with Gilly Greg and Don, cursing Donal John and the electoral process to your hearts content. No one will hear you or disagree with you, you will be in "Bigot heaven"    :0)
