Presumably using the anti-semitism canard to evoke sympathy and deflect from the very serious allegations:
This summer has brought two crises, ...one personal, the re-surfacing of child abuse allegations about her father, Lord Greville Janner, though police have never interviewed him.

She says: “It has been dire. The Janner family has experienced the most putrid, toxic anti-Semitism. It is extreme stuff. It is beyond comprehension.Vile, vile fascist anti-Semitism. This is full on lunacy. And it reminds you that it is there.”

In 2012 Britain was shocked to discover that one of its most popular TV stars was a serial paedophile who had committed sex crimes against children throughout his 50 year career. Jimmy Savile raped children in the BBC’s dressing rooms, in orphan homes and in institutions that cared for the disabled. No one bothered to defend Jimmy Saville.

Yet when Lord Janner faced similar allegations, the British establishment was somehow hesitant and confused. Despite the fact that Lord Janner was suspected of sexually abusing more than 30 children from the mid-1950s until the late 1980s the British judicial system found itself struggling.

Janner, a former Leicester MP (Labour) was the chairman of the Board of Jewish Deputies (BOD), a body that claims to represent British Jewry and the founder of the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET). To date, neither the BOD nor the HET has expressed any regret for its past association with Janner who died at age 87 before a trial could take place.

Lord Janner’s family is taking good care to restore their father’s reputation. Soon after the Lord passed away we learned from the British press that Janner’s three grown-up children asked “to take part in the investigation into his alleged crimes.”

Outside the investigation’s London headquarters, Lord Janner's son, Daniel Janner QC, attacked the "shambolic and discredited inquiry" (into his father alleged crimes).

He claimed there had been a "total failure" to acknowledge "our late father's good character and legal status as innocent"

In February 2018 we learned that Lord Janner’s son vowed to bring a private prosecution against the man who initiated the Westminster child abuse claims, who has himself been charged with paedophile offences.

I am not in a position to verify whether Lord Janner was guilty of the crimes he was accused of but I can confirm that the enquiry into his suspected sex abuse has collapsed. In all, 33 men and women accused Lord Janner of abusing them. Their plight has been forgotten. One of the most embarrassing chapters in Britain’s past remains untouched.

Lord Janner is hardly alone as a suspect in an abusive sex scandal. For the last two years we have been learning about another Zionist enthusiast who left more than 80 victims traumatized, abused and humiliated.

Lord Janner inquiry:
Officer 'ordered not to arrest MP'


A retired detective said he was ordered by a senior officer not to arrest MP Greville Janner, an inquiry heard. Kelvyn Ashby said his child sexual abuse investigation 30 years ago was "stymied" as the peer was given special treatment and was not arrested.
The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) also heard about a "chronic lack of oversight" at Leicestershire County Council. Ex-Leicester MP Lord Janner, who died in 2015, had denied the charges. The evidence comes from three decades ago when allegations of abuse against Lord Janner were first followed up. It emerged as part of a huge investigation into Leicestershire children's homes, the inquiry heard.

Home search
Mr Ashby was in charge but said police were overstretched, and did not follow up the first allegation. He described receiving evidence about Lord Janner repeatedly sexually abusing a boy. Mr Ashby said he wanted to arrest Lord Janner and search his home, but a senior officer ordered that Janner should rather be invited for interview instead.
He said that Janner answered "no comment" throughout that interview.
Mr Ashby said: "I was really annoyed about it. The fact we weren't allowed to arrest him.
“If I'd been arresting a man off the street I would have had plenty of evidence, reasonable grounds for arrest. The opportunity for a search was missed. That's key. We didn't catch him, it was stymied."

When asked by the inquiry barrister if he thought there was no arrest because of preferential treatment, Mr Ashby answered, "absolutely, yes".

It was more than two decades before Lord Janner was charged over that complaint. Mr Ashby said not arresting him at the earlier opportunity, was "one of the main failings".

The Lord Janner case
• Lord Janner was the subject of child sex abuse allegations dating back to 1955.
• Three police investigations took place in the 1990s and 2000s, but no charges were brought.
• Following a fourth inquiry, he was charged in 2015 with offences against nine alleged victims. Police say 38 people accused him of abuse.
• The peer, who suffered from dementia, was ruled unfit to plead, and died aged 87 before a trial of the facts could take place.
• An independent inquiry in 2016 found that the three earlier investigations were "missed chances" to prosecute him.
• Nine of Lord Janner's accusers began the process of suing his estate for damages.
• Three dropped their cases in March 2017 and the remaining six two months later.

The inquiry also heard about failings at Leicestershire County Council, where concerns were raised by several employees around the same time. Accepting mistakes were made, the council's barrister described an account from a worker at one of the council's children's homes. He said a boy had been spending the night in the same room as Lord Janner. The council's barrister also highlighted how a social services manager allowed what was described as a "friendship", which was "well-known" at a high level. He said this represented "a chronic lack of oversight".

Lord Janner's [Jewish] family say they believe he "became a target" due to his prominence and money and "believe as totally in our father's innocence today as we always have".
