Jeremy Corbyn's Passover message to the community per Jewish News. Guess what he doesn't mention.

'We think also about rising levels of antisemitism around the world.

In Poland, the government has passed laws making it illegal to acknowledge Polish complicity in the Holocaust. They have frozen the law that returns property looted by Nazis to Holocaust survivors. 

In France, the neo-fascist National Front is on the rise and just days ago 85-year-old Holocaust survivor, Mirielle Knoll, was brutally stabbed to death in an antisemitic attack. In the US too, we see the far right extremists gathering support for their hateful ideology.

It is easy to denounce antisemitism when you see it in other countries, in other political movements. It is sometimes harder to see it when it is closer to home.

Here's the whole of Jeremy Corbyn's message to the British Jewish community at Pesach 

Note that the rise of antisemitism is linked to fascism but not the left or Islam. Is anyone surprised by the selective criticism of a man who has called Hamas and Hezbollah 'friends', has willingly appeared on Iran's state TV station and has appeared on platforms with many anti Semitic types?
