Scottish Labour tries to distance itself from anti-semitism row
SCOTTISH Labour has moved to distance itself from the anti-semitism row that has dominated the UK party in recent weeks.
Yesterday, Labour’s Holyrood chief, Richard Leonard, and shadow communities secretary Monica Lennon met representatives from the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities (SCoJeC), and the Jewish Leadership Council, and “made clear that there is zero tolerance to anti-semitism in Scottish Labour”.
The meeting came as Labour MPs and party members clashed in London at the disciplinary hearing for Marc Wadsworth, who was suspended in 2016 when he criticised MP Ruth Smeeth at a the launch of report on anti-semitism.

Around 40 MPs marched alongside Smeeth as she made her way to give evidence.
They were met by a group calling themselves Labour Against the Witch-Hunt, who called for the party to “reinstate Marc Wadsworth”.
One of Wadsworth’s supporters, Tony Greenstein, has already been expelled from the Labour Party.
“It’s about toppling Jeremy Corbyn and supporting the special relationship, which means supporting Israel. It’s got nothing to do with anti-semitism at all whatsoever,” said Greenstein.

Hi Sumanth and welcome to Praize.

This is good news. Unfortunately there is also zero tolerance for anything that the government considers to be Islamaphobic hate speech, which can be as nuanced as the sentence I just wrote.

It is no wonder that Jews are fleeing the nations that have welcomed Islamists with eyes wide shut and arms and pocketbooks wide open.

This is probably too little, too late.
