With the Labour Party tying itself in knots over the anti-semitism  issue, I think it's time we had some rational thought about what actually reflects an "ism".    As I understand it, a Semite is a member of a common language and sub-racial grouping in the area of Palastine, which includes both Arabs and Jews.  Jews are a religious sect, NOT a race;  so any criticism of Jews can't be "racist", or even "anti-semitic" .   We've finished up in our society with woke liberals using the term "racist" incorrectly as a shout down to any view contrary to their own, to the point where any debate is shut down.   The real division in the Labour Party is the long standing one between right and left, which has now been overlayed with identity politics.   :rolleyes:

An Iraqi friend of mine once told me that the Israelites & other Arab tribes all stemmed from the 7 Tribes of Israel & that the only difference is that the Israelis follow Judaism as opposed to the Arabs being mainly Islamic. Otherwise they are all the same.

There is more to it than that as Blair left a legacy which had a lot to do with why Labour took sides in the Middle East problem in its own electoral self interests.

Think Labour has played to the Muslim vote for some time now - such is the nature of politics.    :rolleyes:
