BBC’s ‘Is Labour Anti-Semitic?’ documentary maker in conversation

In the latest episode of his podcast series British journalist Jonny Gould talks to John Ware about his documentary “Is Labour Anti-Semitic?” which was aired on BBC One’s ‘Panorama’ earlier this month.

“…the [Labour party] press operation is frankly inept…it’s difficult to take some of their stuff seriously.”

“None of them [the Labour party leadership] would submit to questioning. It’s impossible to interrogate them because any communication is conducted…by e-mail, by written answers…it’s not an ideal way to get to the bottom of something…”

“…the Labour party’s relationship to the truth on some of these issues is not what it should be, has not been what it should be.”

The podcast is available here or in additional formats here.

  1. Everybody intelligent is fully aware that the left-wing BBC commissioned the Panorama programme highlighting anti-Semitism in the Labour party for one reason only……………. It is because they see Corbyn as a liability and a danger to the future of their beloved party and they want him OUT and replaced by a more votable leader.

    “It is true that the American legal system derives
    much of its content from the Old Testament [also
    known as the Jewish Bible or Tanach]…

    When we were growing up, my friends and I
    would take great pride in discovering the Jewish
    sources of American laws, such as: the privilege
    against self-incrimination, the requirement of
    two witnesses for certain types of crime,
    and the very idea that punishment must be
    proportionate to the crime committed.”

    “Why is Israel singled out for super-scrutiny and
    double-standard criticism, expected to maintain
    a level of moral behavior not demanded of anyone else?”

    “We need a new term to describe this phenomenon,
    this double-standard, this super-scrutiny of
    things Jewish, this singling out of Israel.”

    ===================================
    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “This phenomenon, which currently has no
    accepted name, assumes a variety of forms,
    but its most obvious manifestation is the special
    and often gloating attention paid by the media,
    [and] by intellectuals, and by the government
    to any deviation by Israel, no matter how trivial,
    from the highest norms of humans rights,
    civility, and sacrifice.

    Though Israel may be deserving of criticism,
    what is missing is the comparable criticism
    of equal or greater violations by other countries
    and other groups. This constant, often legitimate
    criticism of Israel for every one of it deviations,
    when coupled with the absence of legitimate
    criticism of others, creates the impression
    currently prevalent on university campuses
    and in the press that Israel is among
    the worst rights violators in the world.”
