Ken Livingstone Takes a Page From The Fuhrer

Ken Livingstone, the former London Mayor and Labour MP, who was suspended by the Labour Party for claiming that Hitler was a Zionist back in April, is standing by his remarks.

While speaking at the Oxford Union last night, Livingstone claimed that Hitler being a Zionist was “a historical fact” and equivalent to 1+1=2. For good measure, Livingstone whined that he was a victim of “a well-orchestrated campaign” by the “Israel lobby.” Of course, when Livingstone says Israel lobby, he means Jews.

It will ultimately be up to the Labour Party’s National Executive Committee to determine whether Livingstone is expelled from the party altogether. If he isn’t, then British Jews will be loyal Tory voters for generations to come.

This is an important decision because Livingstone is taking a page from Hitler’s book – The Big Lie. Say something loud enough and often enough and people will believe it to be fact.

By claiming that Hitler is a Zionist, Livingstone is equating a mass murderer of Jews to real Zionists like Theodor Herzl, David Ben-Gurion, Chaim Weizmann, Menachem Begin, Chaim Herzog, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin and countless others who turned a desert into a Jewish homeland and a pluralistic democracy. It is an effort to delegitimize Israel and vilify Jews. Ken Livingstone is an anti-Semite and it is up to the Labour Party to determine if this is the sort of person they want within their ranks.
