J.K. Rowling slams British author for calling Jewish outrage at Corbyn ‘synthetic’

J.K. Rowling went head to head with a fellow British writer on Twitter over his criticism of Jewish complaints about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

Simon Maginn, who has written five thrillers under his own name and satirical comedies under the name Simon Nolan, on Sunday in a tweet called Jewish outrage over Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s 2013 comments indicating that “Zionists” do not understand British culture “patently synthetic outrage,” and called on a Jewish tweeter to “Explain your deep and wounding sense of injury.”

  1. Complicated. Behind the scenes the conservative party adopted Israel’s policy on anti-Semitism last year or before – labour did not. Could explain the headlines,to a degree, calling the labour part anti-semite. Labour has now adopted this policy. The strong emotions don’t help serious debate and nor does not knowing of the reason behind part of the press coverage. In general calling something ‘anti’ is a debate tactic to reduce opposition. Like ‘anti-american’, strong emotions don’t further any debate. But there wasn’t a ‘debate’ until the need to adopt this policy became apparent. One of many factors , perhaps,but a factor ,nonetheless.
