Boycotting Israel is NOT Anti-Semitic

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to the movement to boycott Israel or disinvest from those doing business in the occupied territories as “anti-Semitic.” Similarly, Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who recently presided over a meeting that raised more than $20 million to fight this movement, referred to it as “anti-Semitic.” Whether one agrees with this movement or not, and many Jews are leading participants, the fact is that it is in no way “anti-Semitic.”

Maybe it's to do with the fact you said you would stab him in the front or it's another lie and smear who knows with this lot. 
Maybe Jess just has a problem with Steve Rotheram being Pro Corbyn and Andy Burnham saying yesterday: "There shouldn't have been a second leadership election" and when asked could Corbyn win a General…
