A Labour candidate has reportedly quit following the emergence of a blog post likening Israel to a child abuser.
Kate Ramsden – who was running for Gordon in Scotland – appears to have stood down after claims that anti-Semitism smears against Jeremy Corbyn were being ‘orchestrated by the wealthy establishment’ came to light.
According to the Jewish Chronicle, she previously wrote of Israel: ‘To me the Israeli state is like an abused child who becomes an abusive adult. ‘Like child abuse it has to stop… as we intervene with child abusers the international community needs to intervene with Israel.’
She added: ‘Like many abusers, unable to reflect on their own abuse, and ending up recreating it in the abuse of others, exerting their power in those weaker than themselves because once they were the powerless.’
GW: Well if the cap fits & she has a right to say what she thinks. Maybe Israel should consider that (((they))) seem to be trained from birth to think everyone else except their own are the enemy?????? What kind of logic is that?
