The charges of anti-Semitism against Corbyn are without merit, an underhanded contribution to the disgraceful efforts to fend off the threat that a political party might emerge that is led by an admirable and decent human being, a party that is actually committed to the interests and just demands of its popular constituency and the great majority of the population generally, while also authentically concerned with the rights of suffering and oppressed people throughout the world. Plainly an intolerable threat to order. (Noam Chomsky, email to Media Lens, September 9, 2018)
In 2017, we urged readers to Dump The Guardian over its relentless attacks on Jeremy Corbyn. After a short pause, the paper continued and intensified its attacks, this time spreading spurious and damaging claims of anti-semitism.
Noam Chomsky, asked about these claims, responded:
In his excellent piece The chimera of British anti-Semitism (and how not to fight it if it were real), Norman Finkelstein writes:
The transparent motive behind this cynical campaign is to demonize Corbyn, not because he’s a “fucking anti-Semite,” but because he’s a principled champion of Palestinian rights.
Below, we've compiled a list of over one hundred Guardian articles to give you an idea of just how dedicated the paper has been in spreading these spurious charges of antisemitism.
According to Patrick Elliot, the Guardian was the first UK newspaper to publish a story "with the words 'Corbyn' and 'antisemitism' in the same sentence."
If you haven't already, it really is time to Dump the Guardian.
