Behind the Attack on Corbyn – Criticism of Israel Now Defined as Anti-Semitism | Conn Hallinan via Portside

Does the British Labor Party and its leader, Jeremy Corbyn, have an “anti-Semitism problem,” or has the party’s left wing been targeted by the Israeli government for its support of the growing boycott and divestment movement that challenges Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land?

A group of Israeli lawyers and social activists would like to know the answer to that question and have filed a Freedom of Information action in an effort to find out.

Spearheaded by Israeli human rights activist Eitay Mack, the request targets Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Ministry of Foreign Affairs to “verify tcorbynhat these play no part in the de-legitimization waged in recent years on the UK Labor Party and Mr. Corbyn.”
