The General Election – an urgent message to our supporters
North London Friends of Israel has always been, and remains, an inclusive, non-partisan and non-sectarian organisation. We are neither right-wing nor left-wing, Brexit or Remain. Our supporters include people who are all of these. We welcome everyone, of all faiths and none, who supports Israel and wishes to help us put Israel’s case to our local community. We have always sought to do this in a non-partisan fashion.
However, this is no ordinary general election.
The leader of the Labour Party, and its candidate for Prime Minister of this country, has turned his party into a haven for Jew-haters, Israel boycotters and Holocaust deniers.
Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is not the party we knew – and many supported – in the past.
Good, principled MPs – Ian Austin, John Mann, Luciana Berger, Louise Ellman, John Woodcock, Joan Ryan and many others – have left or been hounded out of Labour by overtly racist, antisemitic intimidation.
Moderates who remain are falling into line behind Corbyn. This sanitises his racist policies and those of his supporters, increasing the likelihood of him becoming Prime Minister.
A victory for Labour would radically increase the level of open antisemitism in Britain. It would destroy Britain’s relationship with Israel and align it with genocidal terrorists and dictatorial regimes who wish to wipe Israel off the map.
Unfortunately, it no longer matters how good or decent your local Labour candidate is. All Labour candidates are committed to making Corbyn Prime Minister.
A vote for Labour is a vote for Corbyn.
To fight this hatred we urge you to Stop Corbyn.
Please vote for whichever candidate is most likely to prevent a Labour victory.
Signed North London Friends of Israel.
