Jeremy Corbyn’s False Empathy on Holocaust Memorial Day

Last week, people gathered across the United Kingdom to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who joined 200 Holocaust survivors at a service in Westminster, shared a photo of himself on social media signing the Holocaust Educational Trust’s book of commitment, saying: “Let us never allow antisemitism or any other form of racism to disfigure our society.”

In that moment, it felt as if the concept of mockery had been invented only to describe the absurdity of Corbyn’s PR stunt. His participation in the service was as offensive as it was hurtful to victims of anti-Jewish discrimination. Here was a man pretending to fight a vicious disease that he himself has helped to spread.

No other form of racism has disfigured the modern mainstream political landscape in Britain as has the rise of Corbynism — an ideology rooted in classic pre-war antisemitic language. Nurtured by Corbyn’s virulent anti-Western and, by extension, anti-Israel sentiments, this ideology has created a climate in which legitimate criticism of Israel has morphed into antisemitism, something no other nation endures.

The purpose of Holocaust Memorial Day is twofold: to serve as a date for official commemoration of the victims of the Nazi regime, and to promote Holocaust education so that hatred of Jews can never again gain a foothold in our societies.
