It is painful to witness the twisted attacks on Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party

13 April, 2018

• THANK you for your Comment (Corbyn, a leader under siege, April 6). As the daughter of a Jewish woman whose parents fled pogroms, it is painful to me to witness the twisted attacks on Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. This is belittling to the sufferings of Jewish people.

Racism in all its forms is abhorrent and, sadly, still at work everywhere. Of course, it should always be challenged, but what seems to be happen­ing is that a pernicious con­coction of lies and disinform­ation by a variety of interest groups has been encouraged to foment, like an etching where what you omit or take out or suggest leaves certain im­pressions, for which the main­stream media must accept a large part of the responsibility.

I say to them: tell the truth. Isn’t Palestine as deserving of the truth too. Mr Corbyn is a man of great principle. He has too much integrity for his cynical opponents. He will not buckle.
