Michael Rosen's views on allegations of antisemitism in The Labour Party
This morning Micheal Rosen wrote the Facebook message below and said it was fine to share it anywhere and everywhere. Micheal is the author of over 100 books. In 2007 he was appointed British Children's Laureate. For full bio visit: here. Rabbi Danny Rich and Rabbi Howard Cooper. This tells us that within the religious part of Jewish life, there are people who are worried about how religious leaders have politicised religion. In the past this has been levelled at Muslims for having brought in 'communalist politics'. Commentators like Nick Cohen were particularly scathing about this at the time of, say, George Galloway being elected. The silence in the mass media about the dangers of a religious group saying, in effect, 'don't vote for Party X' are very great. Howard Cooper could see a danger that it could invite persecution. In this particular election, it is also particularly dangerous because it is a two-horse race. Saying 'don't vote Labour' is in effect saying, 'Let's have a victory for the Tories'. This is no surprise, as the Chief Rabbi welcomed the election of Boris Johnson to the leadership of the Tory Party and blessed him.
