Front of Jewish Chronicle

I don't know much about this and never have but I don't think they've ever printed a direct plea on the front page before.

And how come the Jewish Chronicle has so few adverts? It rarely has any.

What is the direct plea? More details needed.

Religious fruitcakes.

God doesn't exist.

If and when Corbyn loses everyone will be happy blaming the Jews.

#5 The danger is that some stupid people will draw that conclusion.

Is well known right-wing Tory Stephen Pollard still editor of the JC?

Go fuck yourself.

QED all religious groups are deluded nutters.

When Pollard writes anti-Labour articles for the Telegraph, are we supposed to believe this paper is in some way impartial? It’s an unbelievably shitty trick to use race and religion like he does.

And that’s actually the core problem with this shit. Whether it’s the right wing Jewish establishment, of which the JC is the mouthpiece, or the cynical old guard Labour Blairites pretending to care about Jews, it always ends up as ‘those pesky Jews interfering’.

Establishment Jewish groups always try to ‘fit in’, thinking that if they take the side of the wealthy and powerful, that they’ll be protected. History shows that is only the case as long as they continue to be useful (as the Guinness corruption trial showed). And it only ends up creating resentment at ordinary Jews who don’t have their powerful protect1ions.

Also, 87% of synagogue going religious Jews are not representative of the whole Jewish community. The JC represents an ageing and unrepresentative section of the Jewish community and I wish the media would stop being so fucking lazy.

#10: Although the concept of God will probably outlast the concept of bossab2.

Indeed. Careful, though, Tiny, or some thick, dishonest shit stain like Lemongrass will accuse you of blaming Jews.

solomongursky - 07 Nov 2019 10:25:32 (#15 of 344)

I agree, they've got some front.

Jacob_Richter - 07 Nov 2019 10:29:02 (#16 of 344)

Pollard has even had to pay damages for racist libels against Muslims in the past. The man has some front.

Yeah, some people really care about Jews. It’s very touching.

It’s constantly interesting how, from what I’ve seen, of the 5-6 posters on this site who have identified as Jewish in these discussions, only one thinks that Corbyn and Labour are antisemitic. Yet, like most of those in the media, several non-Jews have lined up to tell us how wrong we are, or that we’re not proper Jews.

I’m sure they know best. What would I know...

Turned into a cesspit so soon

LemonGrass, ffs!

Well, their figures are an absolute lie, of course.

Mind you, when shown video evidence that Louise Elland fabricated allegations of barracking and AS abuse, they said that they stood by her lies, as being true.
