Ignorance victorious (for now) as Labour suspends Jackie Walker for alleged anti-Semitism | Vox Political

eu.startpage.com_2016-09-30_18-57-04.pngIgnorance victorious (for now) as Labour suspends Jackie Walker for alleged anti-Semitism | Vox Political – Jackie Walker said she had not found a definition of antisemitism she could work with [Image: Andy Hall for the Observer]. Jackie Walker said she had not found a definition of antisemitism she could work with [Image: Andy Hall for the Observer]. This is a pointless exercise. Labour will look at the evidence, see that there is no case against Ms Walker, and reinstate her – as happened before. The real villains in this little melodrama are the elements of the Jewish Labour Movement who conspired to entrap the Momentum vice-president – and failed rather miserably. Principle among these must be Mike Katz, vice-chair of JLM, who led the ‘training’ session where a discredited definition of anti-Semitism was put forward (intended to provoke a controversial comment, perhaps?) and the event was recorded on camera – a breach of Labour’s ‘safe space’ policy for training sessions – in order to provide the right-wing press with damning material. But here’s the thing: The EUMC definition of anti-Semitism is discounted by the vast majority of interested parties – including the organisation that commissioned it. It has no official status and successor body the Fundamental Rights Agency ditched it.
