Labour Party facebook group antisemitism

‘zionist stooge.’

Joshua Garfield, Labour councillor

"I’ve been kicked out of the Newham Labour Party Facebook Group for asking an admin to remove an antisemitic post. The post referred to Lisa Nandy as a ‘zionist stooge.’ Antisemitic post is still there; but the Jewish member who complained has been chucked out. *sigh*.

Here’s the post. I haven’t a screenshot of my comment request to the admin; it’s since been deleted. It’s in forums like this where hostility to Jews and Jewish orgs are spread among Labour members. Local leadership is required to combat it, not silence Jewish complainants."
