"Antisemitism is a crime in the UK. If it happened there would have been a criminal investigation followed by arrests and convictions."

Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party share the view that language or behaviour that displays hatred towards Jews is antisemitism, and is as repugnant and unacceptable as any other form of racism."

Now gnome why did the suspension of Livingstone occur?

Hi Dave

<" It is pretty good isn't it Mike. Glad it is not just me :-)">

Yes and judging by the packed audience we are not alone.

Haven't seen any of the New Sweeny. Loved the old one though.

We are just watching some repeats of Death in Paradise. Corny but easy to watch and very funny in parts.

Regards

Mike

Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party share the view that language or behaviour that displays hatred towards Jews is antisemitism

Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party have adopted the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, see: IHRA Working Definition of Anti-Semitism which is considerably broader than what you are trying to disingenuously portray, see: New Anti-Semitism from which I offer this excerpt for your edification:

New antisemitism is the concept that a new form of antisemitism has developed in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, emanating simultaneously from the far left, Islamism, and the far right, and that it tends to manifest itself as opposition to Zionism and the State of Israel. The concept generally posits that much of what is purported to be criticism of Israel by various individuals and world bodies, is, in fact, tantamount to demonization, and that, together with an alleged international resurgence of attacks on Jews and Jewish symbols, and an increased acceptance of antisemitic beliefs in public discourse, such demonization represents an evolution in the appearance of antisemitic beliefs.

But do go on pretending, it serves as a perfect example of the definition.

Yes gnome, a very cute response. Pray tell what were the reasons livingstone brought the party into disrepute? Disrepute simply cannot fall out of the sky- there are reasons for such findings. Let me refresh your memory.


http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/ken-livingstone-suspension-labour-party-10158679

Not only do you appear to share the same party as livingstone but also the same inability to accept proven facts.

No. There is discretion. Shah admitted making anti-Semitic comments, but could not be accused of stirring up hatred.
"Antisemitism, as such, is not a criminal offence."

From the same Blog-O-Pedia article you quoted, Boo:

"Critics of the concept argue that it conflates anti-Zionism with antisemitism, defines legitimate criticism of Israel too narrowly and demonization too broadly, trivializes the meaning of antisemitism, and exploits antisemitism in order to silence political debate.

Antony Lerman, writing in the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz in September 2008, argues that the concept of a "new antisemitism" has brought about "a revolutionary change in the discourse about anti-Semitism". He writes that most contemporary discussions concerning antisemitism have become focused on issues concerning Israel and Zionism, and that the equation of anti-Zionism with antisemitism has become for many a "new orthodoxy". He adds that this redefinition has often resulted in "Jews attacking other Jews for their alleged anti-Semitic anti-Zionism". While Lerman accepts that exposing alleged Jewish antisemitism is "legitimate in principle", he adds that the growing literature in this field "exceeds all reason"; the attacks are often vitriolic, and encompass views that are not inherently anti-Zionist.

Lerman argues that this redefinition has had unfortunate repercussions. He writes that serious scholarly research into contemporary antisemitism has become "virtually non-existent", and that the subject is now most frequently studied and analyzed by "people lacking any serious expertise in the subject, whose principal aim is to excoriate Jewish critics of Israel and to promote the "anti-Zionism = anti-Semitism" equation. Lerman concludes that this redefinition has ultimately served to stifle legitimate discussion, and that it cannot create a basis on which to fight antisemitism."

Keith, one of the arguments given by Tezzer was that there were no arrests and no convictions. The point I am making is that that argument should be discounted for all the reasons you have just given. You have failed to grasp the point once again so there is no point in my trying to remake it.

Greg. I always do my research! You must tell me what boo's mantra is. I am only familiar with the Vedic ones.


If you wish to reject a proposition, then to be taken seriously you need to offer some sort of argument to support your position.
Otherwise you are simply frothing and we already have a past master of that affectation.

Well then, Inanes, you'd best re-read the "Working Definition", this time for comprehension.

It says nothing about criticism of the State of Israel or of the Israeli government's actions being "antisemitic". In fact it clearly states the opposite.

And if you don't know what Boo's mantra is, you're the only one here that doesn't.

Yes, I grasped your "point" but is spurious.
There was no criminal offence to charge Labour's anti-Semites with, but there is for having sex with under-age children when it actually happens.

Anti-Semitism is a serious problem for the Labour Party, according to the Labour Party, but underage sex parties are not a problem for the Tories because there have not been any.

Of course it does not, and no sensible person would claim that.
However, some statements about Israel are anti-Semitic, e.g. comaparing Israeli policies to those of the Nazis, as Jim has often done.
Here is an extract,

Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor. 

Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.

 Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.

Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis

Awww c'mon now Gnome don't be so coy. If you are going to quote me quote the full sentence:

"Ken Livingstone still remains suspended from the Labour Party for "bringing the Labour Party into disrepute" for his defence of Shah's remarks."

The remarks being referred to here are those that Naz Shah says herself were anti-Semitic.

So Livingstone remains suspended from the Labour Party for his defence of anti-Semitic remarks.

What a pity those in Labour's NEC can't simply call a spade a spade.

Lovely little creatures, ferrets. Wonderful characters and very intelligent. I am most surprised that someone who says he campaigns against cruelty to animals would suggest that they were vermin and provide recipes to cook them. Even as a jest it is in very poor taste. Still, I suppose that a parasitic worm that has no original thoughts of it's own and survives only off the droppings of its masters can not do any better really. I would not suggest cooking and eating it though. Could make you ill!
