Wow, what a victim.
The Labour leader was roundly condemned after MailOnline exclusively published a video in which he accused British Zionists of having ‘no sense of English irony’.
Ex chief rabbi Lord Sacks accused Mr Corbyn of being an ‘anti-Semite’ and compared the remarks to Enoch Powell’s notorious ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech.
Speaking to Holyrood magazine, the Labour leader told how he was left feeling upset after coming in for the criticism.
He said: ‘I have found these accusations very painful because my whole life has been about opposing racism and I saw at first-hand in Jamaica the hurt inflicted by Powell’s words.’
Why is it I imagine Corbyn like this?
By the way, “Rivers of Blood” was not the river that came to mind when I heard of Corbyn’s supposed pain at being called a racist. That would be Crimea River.
And let me add to Corbyn’s “pain” – releasing this Rosh Hashanah message right as Rosh Hashanah started in the UK does not exactly instill us Jews with confidence that he is anything but a rabid antisemite.
This follows on from his great Rosh Hashanah message last year, where he promised to fight rising
antisemitism housing prices.
