Giddy at their boldness – but Corbyn didn’t cause Labour antisemitism. He’s its product

Giddy from having put its collective head above the parapet for the first time ever, Britain’s Jewish community leadership is telling itself that it has managed to change the political weather.

Earlier this week, the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council published a blistering attack on Labour’s leader Jeremy Corbyn for facilitating antisemitism in his party.

A demonstration they called outside Parliament, which brought around 2,000 mainly Jewish people onto the streets, produced the extraordinary sight of dozens of Labour MPs turning up to express solidarity against their own leader, demanding that he purge the party of the antisemitism now rampant within it.

In the face of this unprecedented protest, Corbyn kept shifting his ground. He first conceded there were “pockets” of antisemitism in the party, then that it was more than “a few bad apples,” and then that there was antisemitism in parts of anti-Israel discourse.

So will the Labour party now be forced to purge this poison with which it’s become rotten? No.
