‘Utter nonsense’: Corbyn smeared as anti-Semite because he opposes ‘horrendous Israeli policies’

‘Utter nonsense’: Corbyn smeared as anti-Semite because he opposes ‘horrendous Israeli policies’
Accusations of anti-Semitism leveled against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn are absurd and serve as a means to intimidate and silence critics of Israel, Dr. Gabor Mate told RT.

Mate, a renowned physician, author and public speaker, expressed bafflement over claims that Corbyn is prejudiced against Jews.

“It’s utter nonsense, and if I was speaking to any fellow Jews of mine who make those claims, I would say to them: Don’t be ridiculous,” he told Afshin Rattansi on RT’s Going Underground.

According to Mate, smearing Corbyn as an anti-Semite is “simply a way to intimidate and silence critics of horrendous Israeli policies.”
