TRIALS OF THE DIASPORA:
A HISTORY OF ANTI-SEMITISM IN ENGLAND
ANTHONY JULIUS  2015 (1.01.36)

In a book that Harold Bloom, in The New York Times Book Review, called a "strong, somber book on an appalling subject," Anthony Julius offers a wide-ranging and insightful history of anti-Semitism in England, the first such study of its kind. Julius focuses on four distinct versions of English anti-Semitism. He first describes the anti-Semitism of medieval England, a radical prejudice of defamation, expropriation, and murder, which culminated in 1290, the year Edward I expelled the Jews from England. The second strand is literary anti-Semitism, from the anonymous medieval ballad "Sir Hugh, or the Jew's Daughter," through Chaucer's "The Prioress's Tale" and Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, to T. S. Eliot and beyond. The third is modern anti-Semitism, the commonplace anti-Semitism of insult and exclusion, running from the mid-17th century through to the late 20th century. The final chapters then deal with contemporary anti-Semitism, emerging in the late 1960s and the 1970s, which treats Zionism and the State of Israel as illegitimate Jewish enterprises.

ON WHY JEREMY CORBYN IS UNFIT TO BE PRIME MINISTER

(Background)    Antisemitism row: Hodge and Brown pile pressure on Corbyn (2 Sept 2018)
MP calls Jeremy Corbyn racist in furious Commons row as Labour redefines anti-Semitism  (18 July 2018)

When Jeremy Corbyn won the Labour leadership he was shrugged off as an unelectable oddball in a scruffy suit who would doom Labour to certain defeat. But last year’s shock election result forces us all to consider the real possibility of a Corbyn-led government – a prospect which has some jumping for joy and others quaking in their boots. Intelligence Squared is bringing together some of Britain’s top political minds to debate whether Corbyn is potentially the saviour of Britain’s downtrodden or a fringe fanatic who is morally unfit to be Prime Minister.

According to his critics, Corbyn leads a dangerous gang of hard-left zealots who cosy up to enemies of the West and are hell-bent on rehashing the disastrous politics of the 1970s. He has turned a blind eye to the antisemitism festering away within the Labour Party and has crafted a foreign policy which would make Putin proud. And when it comes to the economy, his old-school socialist programme of borrowing, tax hikes and Renationalisation could be catastrophic. By pulling Labour away from the centre ground, Corbyn has gravely damaged one of Britain’s great political parties. He is a danger to this country,
and is not fit to lead it.

That’s the contention of the Corbyn-bashers. But what answers do they have to the crises that have plagued Britain since the 2008 financial crash? Inequality is rampant and wages have been squeezed for a decade, while many millennials struggle to get a foot on the property ladder. Homelessness and food bank usage have hit record highs across Britain, and each winter brings a new NHS crisis. Our current economic model has clearly failed, say the Corbynistas, so why not try something different? Corbynism isn’t the socialism of the 1970s – it’s a whole new set of radical, transformative policies and a vision for social justice that has enthused an entire generation of young people. Give Corbyn a chance, and he’ll build a Britain for the many, not the few.

A HISTORY OF THE JEWS IN ENGLAND
THE BEGINNING OF PERSECUTION
AND THE ORGANIZATION OF JEWRY
The Rebs 2015 (41.18)

For the first time Crusading enthusiasm—hitherto at a low ebb—spread throughout England among all classes, from highest to lowest. It was inevitable that the feeling against the Jews was accentuated. The heavy exactions of the previous reign, of which they had been to some extent the instruments, were not forgotten, and there was little prospect that the policy of the government would change. Increasing numbers and prosperity were a prolific cause of jealousy. In 1179 Pope Alexander III had felt obliged to exhort the king to protect the monks of St. Augustine's, Canterbury, in their business dealings with the Jews, which must have been
of considerable volume.

WHO WAS AARON OF LINCOLN?
HENRY ABRAMSON 2014 (511.58)

Reputed to be the wealthiest man in 11th century England--wealthier even than the King--Aaron of Lincoln was a hugely successful moneylender whose achievements included the financing of many cathedrals.  His story, while exceptional in terms of scope, is nevertheless instructive of the Jewish experience in the medieval economy as a whole.

Panorama goes inside the anti-Semitism crisis gripping Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party.

LABOUR ANTISEMITISM ALLEGATIONS FOLLOWING BBC DOCUMENTARY
Julia Hartley-Brewer  talkRADIO 11 Jul 2019 (27.15)
Labour and party leader Jeremy Corbyn have been condemned after a BBC Panorama programme investigating claims of anti-Semitism in its ranks was broadcast.  
Eight people told Panorama they were undermined in their attempts to tackle anti-Semitism in the party.  Former officials alleged that Labour's director of communications, Seumas Milne, and its general secretary, Jennie Formby, interfered with investigations.

Four of those who spoke out, including former Labour general secretary Iain McNicol, broke non-disclosure agreements to do so.  

Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson said the revelations were "harrowing".

IS EUROPE FAILING TO COUNTER
ANTI-SEMITISM? |
DW News, 2019  (20.17)
In France, a surge in anti-Semitic violence and hate speech has caused members of the Jewish community to fear for their safety. French President Emmanuel Macron has made a very public show of condemning the crimes, which include vandalism of cemeteries, online harassment and physical attacks. Elsewhere too, many Jews increasingly feel under threat. Rising numbers of anti-Semitic crimes and violent attacks in Germany are causing alarm in Jewish communities, and prompted the Central Council of Jews in Germany to call for stronger action by police and politicians.
