„Speakers at a Wednesday evening University of London Student Union (ULSU)-sponsored panel called for the destruction of Israel as a solution to ridding the world of antisemitism, The Algemeiner has learned from a British watchdog group. According to a UK Media Watch report, several panelists issued the calls during an event centered on the theme of antisemitism in the Labour Party and how the current scandal is being used to silence critics of Israel and bring down party leader Jeremy Corbyn. A leaflet handed out at the beginning of the panel, titled ‚Labour Jews Assert,‘ stated, ‚some people … are wielding ‘antisemitism’ allegations as a stick to beat the Corbyn leadership.‘
Speaker Tariq Ali – a British Pakistani writer, journalist and filmmaker, who is an outspoken supporter of Hamas – said the annihilation of Israel would greatly benefit both Palestinians and Israelis. Antisemitism, according to Ali, is a result of the creation of a Jewish state, and once Israel is wiped off the map, antisemitism will disappear. Ali’s calls for a one-state solution were seconded by fellow speaker John Rose, a notorious anti-Israel and anti-Zionist author.
Ali also accused Israel of branding those who criticize the country as antisemites, stating, ‚This is not a decision that was taken here [in Britain] or in Washington, DC. This was a decision that was taken by the Israeli government in Israel.‘ He referred to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as the ‚first mass non-violent movement to get Palestinian rights and defend Palestinian rights.‘“ (weiter hier)
