Left antisemitism: what it is and how to fight it

Click here to download text of pamphlet as pdf Since Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the Labour Party a number of political storms have taken place in which Corbyn and the wider left have been accused of antisemitism.

They are the tools of demagogy more than of reasoned discourse…our language of politics is decayed, disablingly. So opens Sean Matgamna’s timely book on the moral gangrene of the British Left. In connection with apologia for Mao’s murder of 70 million Chinese, he speaks of ‘mind-rotting conflation, purging of the real meaning of words, vandal destruction of important concepts, smart-ass apologist’s attempts to obscure important distinctions.’ And of course, Matgamna...
