This odious individual trying to defend his antisemitism to the BBC's Andrew Neil on the "Daily Politics" show, is Old Trot Gerry ("The Jewish Question") Downing, a revolutionary socialist from London via Ireland who has now been expelled by the Labour Party, in which he was an activist. (See here and here)
|Just a taste of the obscene antisemitism to be seen on this creep's Twitter page|
Defiant and unashamed, he says he will appeal the decision to expel him.
As a prominent left-leaning British Zionist and academic observes on Facebook:
"Gerry Downing does not believe anything different from a huge number of Labour members including the leader; that the antisemitism and violence of Hamas, Hezbollah and ISIS are fundamentally defensive against the agressive systemic global violence of Zionism and imperialism. It is an entirely standard worldview in the UK.This is not of course to defend it, but to illustrate the depths of the problem."
