Jewish Letter denounces smears of Anti-Semitism against Labour and CorbynA celebrated attack on Corbyn by Chief Rabbi Mirvis was devoid of facts and instead complained of the Labour Party “culture”. (...) A detailed examination of all the anti-Semitism accusations against Labour done by a group of UK Jews supporting Labour found the charges were “smoke without fire”. As for what Jeremy Corbyn has done (as opposed to words taken out of context) his record is sterling, going back to the time he organized the defense of Jewish-populated Wood Green from a National Front rally. John Bercow, the Jewish former Conservative MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, testifies that, having known Corbyn over two decades, he has ‘never detected a whiff of antisemitism’ about him. This is a political fight, not a matter of a racist attack on religion or ethnicity. Right-wing Jews who hate Corbyn for his support for Palestinian rights and Right-wing non-Jews who hate Corbyn for his proposed social reforms are united in spreading the “Labour anti-Semitism” slander. If false charges of anti-Semitism are used by the Right in successfully destroying a candidacy in the UK, they’ll do it again and again worldwide. [bz] 14/12/2019

British Jews blockade Israeli ‘lawfare’ group talk in LondonJewish News (UK) - While a community centre in north London was hosting a talk by Naomi Linder Kahn, a director of the Israeli radical nationalist ‘lawfare’ group Regavim, activists from the anti-occupation group Na’amod linked arms and stood in front of the entrance. The Na’amod protesters made their presence known by singing songs, and using a megaphone to recite Birkat HaBayit, the Jewish prayer for the home. A separate protest by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign took place nearby. Regavim has led the legal charge to demolish Bedouin and Palestinian homes. Josh Cohen, a Na’amod member who took part in the blockade, said that "Welcomin Regavim to the UK demonstrates the depths of the moral crisis in our community when it comes to the occupation. Regavim doesn’t just support the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Israel and the West Bank. It is actively involved in efforts to make this happen. Just as British Jews have rejected the home-grown extremism of British racists, they must reject the vile hatred championed by organisations such as Regavim. Everyone who opposes racism must condemn those Jews who welcome this sort of hate into our community.” [ak] 10/12/2019

Rabbis standing up together for Palestinian childrenRabbi Alissa Wise - Jewish Voice for Peace - For decades “unconditional” U.S. support for Israel has been code for funding Israel’s human rights abuses of Palestinians – Trump is simply taking that to its logical next step. But more and more Jews, especially young Jews, commit to working for justice and equality for all in Israel/Palestine. [ak]3/12/2019
