A member of the Scottish Labour Party has accused the UK’s three main Jewish newspapers of being agents in the pay of Mossad, the Israeli secret security agency.
The astonishing claim follows last Wednesday’s decision by the independent outlets to publish a joint warning that anti-Semitism had eroded Labour and posed an “existential” threat to British Jewry.
“If the purpose is to generate opposition to anti-Semitism, it has backfired spectacularly. (I)f it is to get rid of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Leader, it is unlikely to succeed, and is a shameless piece of cynical opportunism.
“And if it is a Mossad assisted campaign to prevent the election of a Labour Government pledged to recognise Palestine as a State, it is unacceptable interference in the democracy of Britain,” Labour Councillor Mary Bain Lockhart wrote on Facebook.
