New Labour Party Leader Keir Starmer Supports Zionism, Promises to “Tear Out” Antisemitism “By its Roots”

I like this guy already.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, here’s another reason why he is a nightmare for Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters:

Speaking exclusively to Jewish News, he opened up about his little-known Jewish family ties, saying: “My wife’s family is Jewish. Her dad is Jewish, their family came over from Poland. The extended family live in Israel”, in Tel Aviv.

While he hasn’t yet visited the Jewish state, he said he would “of course” like to go, adding: ”I haven’t been but we’re in regular contact with them and we’ve got various visits planned, basically to take our kids for the first time.”

“I do support Zionism. I said that last night. I absolutely support the right of Israel to exist as a homeland.”

“My only concern is that Zionism can mean slightly different things to different people, and as Lisa [Nandy] said, to some extent it has been weaponised. I wouldn’t read too much into that. I said it loud and clear – and meant it – that I support Zionism without qualification.”
