Here's something 'hollow-cost' related that is getting the usual 'Friends of Israel
' smear tactic, 'news' coverage:
Its concerning Israeli Jew and Palestinian Rights supporter Miko Peled saying this at the British Labour Party annual conference:
“This is about free speech. The freedom to criticise and to discuss every issue: whether it’s the Holocaust, yes or no; Palestine; the liberation; the whole spectrum. There should be no limits on the discussion.”
And its being made into 'news' to bash Jeremy Corbyn with the 'anti-semite' smear yet again.

As in the Daily Fail linked above, and — as usual — also in The Guardian
In The Guardian
, famous 'Friend of Israel
' Labour Deputy Leader Tom Watson is given the hero treatment. Presumably paving the way for him to be a successor to pro-Palestinian Party leader Corbyn if this succeeds in making it all go wrong for Corbyn. They never give up, these zionists.
maintains this could end Corbyn's election chances!!?
Antisemitism could stop Labour winning power after Holocaust denial row hits conference
Labour cannot win power while Jewish voters shun the party over antisemitism, a defeated candidate has warned, as allegations of Holocaust denial tarnished the conference.
Mike Katz warned Jeremy Corbyn of many “difficult conversations” on the doorstep with Jewish people who were turning their backs on Labour because of the perception of an antisemitism stain.

So... Somehow if Jews don't vote for you then you have no chance?!
Hmmm? Soooo... they are admitting that 269,568 Jews who represent only 1.1% of the population of Britain really DO get to decide who rules???
. . . . .
I myself regard this particular smear reporting as very good 'news' indeed.
I take this as yet another sign of how attitudes are changing, despite the efforts of some in the media.
When someone as respected, as sincere, as ethically principled, as noble and as high profile as Miko Peled says it, its going to be hard to shut this call for openess on this traumatising pseudo-history down.
