Left-wing anti-Semitism is anything but a new phenomenon per Daniel Hannan on Telegraph Blogs

'Left-wing anti-Semitism is anything but a new phenomenon
"How, as a socialist, can you not be an anti-Semite?" Adolf Hitler asked his party members in 1920. No one thought it an odd question. Anti-Semitism was at that time widely understood to be part of the broader revolutionary movement against markets, property and capital.
... Karl Marx himself,... The grandson of two rabbis, he disliked all religions, but reserved a vehemence for Judaism that we never find in his writings on Christianity – about which he could be rather sentimental, though he deplored its corruption by the "Jewish spirit". In 1844, the odious cadger wrote: The essence of Judaism and the root of the Jewish soul is expediency and self-interest; the God of Israel is Mammon, who expresses himself in the lust for money. Judaism is the embodiment of anti-social attitudes.'

The left have long allied themselves with anyone who might help destroy capitalism and in doing so have chosen Islamism, with its inherent anti Semitism, over the Judeo Christian. Thus much of the British left have accepted anti Semitic slurs, often by saying they mean anti Zionist, but I and others are not fooled.
