Tony Greenstein, the Jewish ‘anti Zionist’ activist who has spent the best part of the last two decades harassing and slandering the most dedicated pro Palestinian thinkers and activists*, was expelled yesterday from the Labour party. Greenstein believes that it may have something to do with the “hysteria over ‘anti-Semitism’ amongst Corbyn supporters.
Interestingly, in a statement circulated yesterday, Greenstein himself admits that he wasn't an AZZ(Anti Zionist Zionist) as many of us assumed for years. He was actually a devoted Zionist operator seeking the approval of the most hawkish Zionist Lobby in Europe. Greenstein writes: “even the Zionist Board of Deputies of British Jews (BOD) and other Zionists have acknowledged my role in combatting Gilad Atzmon, a notorious anti-Semite who used to be associated with the Palestine solidarity movement.”
This is clearly a refreshing development. Many years ago, when Greenstein was brought to court charged with petty crimes such as credit card theft (see below), his Rabbi father was his Kosher credential. Now that Greenstein has drifted away from his Rabbinical heritage, he uses the ultra Zionist Lobby group BOD as proof of his kosher ambitions. He has a good reason to do so: our Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn,, once a prominent member and patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, is in a more than friendly relationship with the ultra Zionist Lobby.
I can obviously understand why the Labour Party wants nothing to do with Tony Greenstein. But we, the ‘so called’ antisemites (for merely pointing out Israel being the Jewish State) do not want him either!
I will say it in an unequivocal manner: We, the true enemies of Jewish racist politics, are not happy to become the Labour Party’s dustbin.
We should start to make our club slightly more exclusive. Maybe we should follow the Jews and allow in only those antisemites who can prove beyond any shred of a doubt that their mother was also anti semitic.
