11:06 pm
is absolutely shocking. they tell the inside story of how sir can't darma, who could be britton's next prime minister overseas a lawless party? i've waited 17 bob to appear in front of you in this whole as live, all right, all hundreds of thousands of internal communications. expose how secretive operatives took control of britain's labor party. he's a qu by 2 people to take over one of the major political parties in britain that free speech was shot down in the life of parting look like somebody is course, currently monitoring fear i'm going and where my car is park to live with children is going, it just stinks to high heaven. what that even in the background and the fowls reveal how a hierarchy of racism exists under storm. his leadership, i faced more racism in the labor party and i have in the rest of my life combined
11:07 pm
in episode to the true story behind the labor parties, anti semitism crisis. i feel so ashamed right now, but it's come to this. i have been speaking for may we reveal how truth was diverted? oh, right. and reality turned on its head. the media was not interested in the reality of the school. i to cobra who you i'm, i'm from sky news from sky news because life of the school. what are you going to do about the perceived anti semitism and your partner? mr. coleman. if you got any comment on, jeremy corbin devoted his political career fighting racism. suddenly he becomes labor lead up, and the media come bolling this to tell the world,
11:08 pm
but this man is not an anti racist. he is actually a racist, ah, mystical of it was, he was with it disabled them as a politician and as a potential prime minister, instead of being able to set out his social democratic vision of social justice, he was obliged to feign dolph one allegation after another but he was actually a noxious racist, orderly right, enabled, noxious places. the i unit investigation draws on voices that have been sidelined, choose who support jeremy corbin but don't support israel and british palestinians. it was painful as palestinians. they had he to enter
11:09 pm
the debates and that's how it is designed, designed to pay it draws to on the entire contents of the party's disciplinary folders. since before jeremy corbin became leader in 2015. we have really detailed data and information that one doesn't normally see about a political party. a veteran anti racist campaigner analyzes the documents. my mother was a holocaust survivor. he lost dozens of her own family primarily in auschwitz and to raise youngster. i am a former and he member of parliament from south africa where i served under nelson mandela and i have written and lectured including and outfits on genocide prevention. hundreds of party activists are suspended and expelled on the
11:10 pm
basis of evidence in these files. it consists largely of social media post. ah, there are examples o genuine clear anti semitism. you know, here is an example that says, the enemy is not muslims of christians of judaism, the real enemy is rothschild zionism. the rough child family holds about 80 percent of the world's total wealth rothschild the nasty. this is a fairly standard anti semitic trope. here is another one who killed jazz, kay, who killed lincoln, who attacked the u. s. s. liberty. who is attacking our liberty. i'll tell you who jews we can see real anti semitism
11:11 pm
and there is also a lot of information in these disciplinary files where there is clearly no anti semitism whatsoever. there's one post it reads in memory of for little football is rest in peace and i'm sure many people will recall em. these for young kids, 9 to 11 years old, playing football on the beach who was shot dead by israeli forces. another example, we demand that international criminal court and the un charged benjamin netanyahu. and israel for war crimes against humanity. very similar, put israel on trial for war crimes. to suggest that this is somehow anti semitic, is simply trying to avoid israel in cold,
11:12 pm
out for its appalling abuses in the occupied term. ah, many of those investigated by the labor party believe that israel is in apartheid state. israel was created in 1948 by forming a jewish homeland within historic palestine, the combination of the zionist dream. in 1967, israel invaded and occupied the remaining palestinian land. israel has since isolated garza while building illegal settlements in the west bank. slowly diminishing the size of a potential palestinian state. ah, estonians effectively live on the israeli military control and do not have equal rights. it's 90 submissive, to call israel in apartheid state. it's simply a fact. we,
11:13 pm
we have the amnesty international report for human rights watch report. we have israel's own one in those major. she writes organizations, but selim have also come to this conclusion. wow. oh, it's really pissy understood that there are things you can't say. so one of them is you can't talk about your experiences in harrowing her. oh, you have to keep it sort of cool and, and you can't talk about israel in the way that it shouldn't be talked about. oh wow. when i started having a bit more active about anti semitism, i was just confused because you don't palestinians ever chose who the lack of
11:14 pm
occupy wasn't hughes, who for some of the house and choose which religion they were going to say they asked in the name off there was no choice in that i do apologize with accusations of anti semitism in the labor party emerge after former london mayor ken livingston is attacked. a claiming that hitler had been a supporter of zionism. you're a lot even racist. i see upon your heck from nasty apologies. you dare say you sent him a full exam. he said you're on the roster. i think you me a say is at stake. every re says i'm to say mouths and for the labor part say it's time for jeremy goldberg. criticism of the labor party mounts,
11:15 pm
but not old british jews, oppose the labor leader. the route of anti semitism exposes divisions within the jewish community. with lots of jewish people were among the enthusiasts for jeremy corbett. but when the attack started to really ratchet up against jeremy and his supporters who were being absolutely demonized, vilified in the media. we talked to others in the party and decided that there was a need for a group which expressed an alternative. jewish view. pro corbin, jews, formed jewish boys for labor j b l is critical of israel and zionism. unlike its large arrivals, the jewish labor movement and labor, friends of israel, both of which are supportive of israel. ah. for the 1st time ever the labor
11:16 pm
party has walked into the disagreement between jews, overs honest and said one sort of jews. ugh, not only wrong, but the guilt of anti semite to face a phenomenon her. the idea that jew equals ernest and the and he's on is an equals anti semitism, is, is dangerous. it's reprehensible. it's an abomination to me. ah, jewish voice for labor is supported by palestinians in the party who believe they are the victims of racism. anybody who knows anything about the history knows very well that israel was created on the basis of a state whose population would be of one community and not others. ah, this is exemplified in my own story. i mean,
11:17 pm
why should i and my family have left our homes? ah, we felt we had to leave because there had been a dreadful massacre in a village hall day. i see in policy and village in which jewish or malicious, assaulted the village, and shot dead over a 100 people. mm. after that terrible massacre, a big jeep went round the streets of jerusalem with the malicious, with these jewish militias in it. leaders are shouting out, your turn is next and i have never been allowed to return. no member of my family has returned. no palestinians,
11:18 pm
i know has been allowed to return for the same racist reason. they are of the wrong race. so you keep them out. well, if that isn't racism, i don't know what is i to have corbin's opponent confront, pro palestinian protest is a wow. most anti semitism campaign as belong to the political mainstream. but some, a more militant with to what we have here. oh, militant scientists. the people who campaigned for the state of israel, paul scott, is a pro palestinian activist. i
11:19 pm
get to know the faces. it's actually only a very small corps of people. they are always there. in many cases, the people they perceive to be going to see might of merely people who criticize the state of israel. oh, jonathan huffman is a form of vice chair of the zionist federation. mm. with him is damon lens. now another pro israel activist. following this incident, both men are convicted of aggressive bullying behavior. the aim is to provoke, to i call, and in jonathan hoffman's case is usually to disrupt. i. once i tell jose i unit has discovered links between huffman and the far right
11:20 pm
organisation. members of the racist english defense league o e d. l attended a demonstration that huffman helped organize his photographed alongside roberta mo, the founder of the edi els jewish division. she will lay to express her admiration for anders brevity, the neo nazi him. mad at 77 people in norway from around june 2010, the english to french lee started coming to demonstrations supporting the pro israel counter demonstrators. so they were dressed in camouflage care. they often had balaclava as dogs with them. so george's flags here, the whole thing huffman is not the only pro israel activist who had links to the fall, right. he worked closely with blogger, richard mallet. mallets blog regularly provided
11:21 pm
a platform from about to mow and other e d l supporters. there are lots of examples about right racism in regard to most comments on richard minutes blog. for example. she refers to broker clad dragons and filthy bearded vermin. arabs have been eating campbell for years. the cult of islam has the power to turn normal human beings into beasts huffman and melody, distance themselves from the e. d l in 2011. but they will play a key role in labels anti semitism crisis. ah, the majority of cubans, critics do not embrace all right, politics, but they blame corbin for allowing anti semitism to flourish. so i know when you to said that he ah, but corbin has
11:22 pm
a problem. one that is ignored in the media coverage as leader of the opposition colburn has his own office, often known as latte. it's the parties general secretary in mcnichol, who was in charge of party headquarters and is the dispute unit at party headquarters that handles anti semitism complaint. corbin inherited the party bureaucracy from previous less radical party leaders. for the 1st 2 and a half years, the beesley ship, jeremy colby, was obliged to work with a general secretary who was hostile to him and ran a posse machinery which was hostile to him. i've never worked in a i an environment that was so. so talk to can and i talked to can i'm friendly. i remember for example, the 1st time i went to walk to round
11:23 pm
h k. and we were just walking around one of the floors and it just goes deathly silent. ah, the neighbor falls container. what's that conversation between 3 senior officials? clare francis fella, the head of internal governance, tracy, ellen, manager of the general secretary's office. and mike crighton, the director of audit risk and property. the messages refer to jeremy colbin. ah, i am just about to stop him. that might be a disciplinary worth it know nothing in the rules about stabbing o phone though. he's got some great knives, but an ice pick would have a certain irony. this is a reference to the general secretary in mcnichol and to the mazda of leon trotsky.
11:24 pm
what killing your leader with an ice bake or knife? no, come under bringing the party into disrepute. not in this case. leading this is about a dozen people in this watch at the most senior officials in the labor party. they obviously have total confidence in one another. this conversation is not going to be late. they not say he orders from mister colbin quite the opposite. they always be hope be caught in the ship, him in content. so after a year, as lida coven is forced to stand for a 2nd time following an attempted coup, while the party establishment challenges call them, he inspires hundreds of thousands of new members to join staff at party headquarters launch what is known as the validation process.
11:25 pm
they scour the social media of new members. it's claimed. the goal is to weed out those who hold offensive views. the labor files reveal the methodology used by party staff. they drop a list of labor impedes and such from abuse directed at them. and only at those m p 's if you look at the name of the m p 's legal list of 57. and the very old thing is, as far as i can see, the scarce the single supporter of jeremy colbin on this list. it kind of loads it in a very significant way, but it's only going to pick up because hostile to the right wing of the party. i. carbonite supporters with more than $11000.00 members are identified as needing to be investigated.
11:26 pm
it creates a backlog in the disciplinary unit and i've that star from tackling antisemitism. factionalism within the labor party was so endemic and so pronounced that he was disrupting other parties ability to deal with. for example, anti semitism cases, the validation process is run by sam matthews. who soon becomes head of the disputes team handling anti semitism? the lawyer is not an option. cation is not an option b. that because the head, the other way, is not an option. the time is now by the spring of 2018. corbin is as frustrated as his critics the labor fall, show that in february that year coban right to the parties, general secretary in mechanical angry that the dispute team under sam matthews is so ineffective in tackling anti semitism. it is clear that
11:27 pm
the current processes are far too slow to meet the volume of disciplinary cases. the party has to deal with in a drought response mechanical claims. the scale of anti semitism in the party is exaggerated. over half of the complains made relate to non members, and therefore not a matter for the complaints team. he urges corbin to remind colleagues in the shadow cabinet and the parliamentary labor party that misguided comments attacking the unit undermined the work they do and said only those in the right wing press in april 2018. coban puts close ally jenny form be in charge of the party bureaucracy form be replaced as mechanical as general secretary at party headquarters. finally, giving the leadership authority over the disputes department, staff brought in by form b to walk on disputes
11:28 pm
a report of what they find. there was no record keeping. so a number of members had been suspended or investigated. however, we couldn't find the evidence for what, what caused the suspension all the investigation. so it was clear to me that cases just hadn't been worked on. so for me to start in 2019 and have 1st eyes on cases from 2016 was quite absurd. once corbin is in control of the party bureaucracy, the disciplinary process improves. this graph shows the number of suspensions, investigations and expulsions from the labor party on grounds of anti semitism. all through the corbin era, a vase is the moment when jenny form b becomes general. secretary of the labor party enabling jeremy colbin to take control of the bureaucracy of her labor works. after they took control,
11:29 pm
the number of investigations, suspensions and expulsions went up exponentially. this graph on its own does a great deal to raise deep questions about the dominant media narrative on the corbin era in part to how the parties desperation to end. the anti semitism crisis pushed staff to the brink. there was an individual who i had expelled hers. she had a stroke which led to her death is something that deeply, deeply invited to music. the 3rd of the country is under water. more than 33000000 are suffering from hunger, disease and displacement. the word stories about children who were drinking from
11:30 pm
the fame water with their dead cattle was floating al jazeera questions. the climate change play a role in the deadly down for climate change is here to stay with the full report pakistan. the great deluge on al jazeera with oh
11:31 pm
hello, i'm sorry, i'm moving on just a quick look at main stories of following now. at least 38 people, including 23 children, have been killed in a shooting a knife attack at a daycare center in the northeast of thailand. and children with age from 2 to 5 years old and most of them were stamped to death. the attack was a former policeman who was facing trial on drug charges after the shooting. he killed his wife and child at home for killing himself. decline in authority, say at least 4 people have been killed in russians. drive on residential buildings in the southern says he gives up. the injured includes a 3 year old child, according to the regional governor crane. foreign minister is accused rusher, deliberately striking civilians to sophia. the lead is a 44 year apiece, countries or in prague at the 1st meeting of the new summit. the aims to address some of the pressing issues facing continents, including the fallout from russia,
11:32 pm
war and ukraine. it is discussing shad challenges like migration security and the energy crisis. this meeting extremely important. this should be the 1st one. it should be an important meeting because we share the same content and we face the same challenges and we have the occasion to address how we can try to, to improve the corporation to transmission in order to have more more stability, more city team or more piece at least 18 people have been killed in 2 separate boats. accidents in greece. coast guards has one boat capsized off the island of less balls. it was carrying at least 40 people trying to migrate europe. a 2nd incident happened by the south navy on and if cathedra. thousands of people, including many children, were rescued off to a boat, carrying up to $100.00 people, hit rocks and sank in high winds. india is testing samples of cough syrup produce for export. i made in pharmaceuticals,
11:33 pm
off the world health organization said they were linked the death of $66.00 children in the gambia w i chose at the desk or from acute kidney injuries. and lab samples are showing that each of the 4 syrup made by the engine company contains unacceptable. amounts of contaminants may dance, as it became aware of the death on thursday and was seeking for the details more and everything we're covering in the news our that's in about 25 minutes time. i will see you then i'll do their investigations. the labor files continues now. hm .
11:34 pm
ah ah ah, having gained control of the party bureaucracy, the corbin leadership made tackling anti semitism a priority. there were many instances where i did feel quite uncomfortable in terms of how far they were pursuing individuals for anti semitism. we were instructed to scour through facebook pages and social media pages of individuals who we were
11:35 pm
looking for under semitic material for the word palestine was included as such term, which was the thing that alarmed me the most. we would act almost immediately to any inquiries that would come in from the jewish chronicle. jewish news, and even if it was not close of play, we would often get instructed by the directors to just stay behind so we can take action on those, those individuals. ah, the labor files reveal that anti semitism campaigners or scarring, social media accounts, evidence to center labor headquarters. one has to understand that this was a social media crisis that it involves people creaming through extraordinary numbers. of social media comes to
11:36 pm
find examples that could be interpreted as anti semitism. so what we have here is the anti semitism, tases logs, which logs every single complaint of anti semitism made during the corbin years. and after the carbon is 23 percent of all complaints in the carbon error involved one single individual complainant, 23 percent 12 percent came from the organisation labor against anti semitism. ah, labor against anti semitism is a collective of party activists. it regularly makes accusations against jewish party members, but its spokesman, you and phillips is not jewish. ah,
11:37 pm
the labour files show that phillips right to the party's disputes unit using a pseudonym that appears jewish. david goldstein, on one occasion he uses his real name. thank you. you and he hastily corrects himself. i meant thank you. david labor against anti semitism does have a jewish adviser. whether jeremy kobus not you seem, i don't know you just as to an answer make association to many terrorist associations to be able to be trusted in downing street. jonathan hoffman at one time demonstrated alongside the english defense league. now he's on mainstream tv news from jewish boys, labor and johnson hoffman, who is a consultant to the labor against anti semitism group. thank you both for joining as absolutely not satisfactory. i'm the issues with the between the jewish
11:38 pm
community and between labor $97.00 which i represent, i'm labor party will go on after to day. the block run by richard millet becomes the source for a number of stories about corbin's alleged anti semitism. they include a 2013 incident when corban accused a group of zionists, of lacking a sense of english irony. the zionists present at the meeting. he was describing what millet an huffman with. i am just dumbstruck. these people in shorter it with known right wing extremists with known racists with a slam of hopes when they have a story about what a perceived to be anti semitism. they're taken seriously in at face value by the mainstream media. we don't seem to conduct any kind of research into their background all their associates. i'm just amazed with
11:39 pm
a policy at labor headquarters. the pressure of anti semitism takes a tone. there was an individual who i had expelled out of the labor posse and find he semitism. and she was an elderly lady and she passed away soon after her expulsion and people were blaming the pots his expulsion leading to death. as she had a stroke which led to her death. 2 we had a chang maintain, and in the meeting a senior officer had laughed and said look where and he said might kill us now. and the whole room broke out laughter. at that stage i just broke down because, you know, i'd, i just didn't know how to deal with something. so horrendous. i
11:40 pm
blamed myself is something that deeply, deeply invited to me anything ah take care of everything at least discovered this answer. phone threat has been left by a jewish man. persia. very, very shaky. i mean, it's such kind of absolutely uncontrollable, rage and fury. i mean, the idea that you should be talking to other jews in this vile way. jewish
11:41 pm
supporters of jeremy corbin find themselves in an increasingly hostile environment and i have had phone calls. i had some phone calls from somebody who said that he was outside my door and he knew me and he knew my home anywhere. and as i lifted, he was going to put me in a wheelchair. and i last thing. yeah. i met what to me was utterly cool, nastiness from local labor party. and what was so cool was that i've been a member of the parties that i was young, socialist, 15 or something. i used to love the labor party. i had such friends here. people turned against me people. i knew people whose my children baby sat for the children this they don't go don't call 7. talk to jenny manson anyway. i kind of thing. it's been horrible. oh, with me again. this is my son. i've been, i'm standing here, i'm a try
11:42 pm
to raise a different view. i my pro corbin juice find themselves shouted down palestinian voices are silenced almost entirely. the crisis in the labor party and 2018 coincides with the great march of britain in the gaza strip. a group of unarmed people marched to the barrier that israel had erected between garza and the rest of the country and demanding that they should return to their homes and lands.
11:43 pm
the israelis responded with fire. in 8 months over a $150.00 palestinians are killed. it was inspiring in one way to see the strength and resilience of the palestinian people. i'm with by the same time it was actually devastating. ah, a shot, a journalist yasemin a member of a press fest on a shot, a nurse with her hands off. i mean, these bubbles crimes being committed but at the same time everything in the
11:44 pm
labor party was a different was it wasn't talked about a was an ad part the forefront and they, they were the best line spawn anti semitism. as i feel like a lot of people when it came to policy, felt like they had to walk an egg shells in order to get the terminology. exactly right. ah. people to from mom or facebook speaking up for the palestinian people. and because it's easier not to, i infuse, yes to campaign is increasingly focused their efforts on compelling the labor party to adopt a new definition of anti semitism. i be very clear that any the full adoption of the international follicles, remember, it's like working definition about the semitism is good enough or it's my back to
11:45 pm
the caveat. see, any see has got to adopt internationally. green coat, lock, stock, and barrel. palestinians opposed the new definition of the i h r a definition was eagerly taken off by western government and, and western institutions. and it was bertram play, blatantly pro israeli, an and t and therefore anti palestinian. the controversy around the definition concerns the examples that accompany it. these are the 11 illustrative examples of the i h r a definition of anti semitism. 7 of these and read refer to israel. it conflicts criticism of israel with anti semitism. 71 denying the jewish people are right self determination, for instance,
11:46 pm
by claiming that the existence of the state of israel is a racist endeavor is particularly problematic. because by acknowledging the right to self determination of the jewish people, you are by definition removing the right of self determination from the palestinian people. there was a lot of attempts to push back truthfully i think at that time periods there was fairly minimum success and pushing the policy in narrative in the media around as a shape to me when i remember is that basically being there to non i
11:47 pm
label ruling national executive committee is gathering to discuss whether to adopt the i h r, a definition outside of familiar pro israel activists. oh. inside the any see pauses the international holocaust rememberance alliance definition including the examples that linked antisemitism to criticism of israel. we don't, did the i h o re because it was politically impossible to hold up why, you know, why you wouldn't day off to day on the media. there are jewish voices who want the i h r. i definition the count of pressure, frogs and palestinian voices in the media and so on was absent. ah, i wasn't surprised than a past. they created a climate where i think many people thought that the only way the a test stop is if this definition was passed. by wish i
11:48 pm
just wish that showing me, corbin, i don't know what he truly believed in. i thought time, ah, our exit poll is suggesting that there will be a conservative majority. the labor party suffers one of its west electoral defeat. december 20 jeremy corbin is replaced as labor leader. hon. bye for kiss, thomas. it is the owner of the privilege of my life be elected as leader of the labor party. de new leader has a very different view of the relationship between israel and the palestinians. i'm a senior national recently went to report with being a part of state that was embraced and supported by many members of the party, particularly on the on the line with no, i've been very clear about lot of that is not a faulty position staff in the parties, dispute department feel
11:49 pm
a change i believe the criteria for and services in changed quite dramatically within kids leadership, it was quite clear that anti semitism was going to be used as a tool under the new leadership to essentially strike as many left wing members as possible many jews are among those targeted by the new leadership at least 56 jewish people that we know of have at some point during this completely insane period than labor party history, been either investigated, suspended, or actually expelled from the party for something to do with anti semitism, jewish members of the labor party, we've calculated the 6.3 times more likely to be investigated by the labor party for allegation of anti semitism. the non jews in the labor party. people have
11:50 pm
