'The founder of the UK Labour campaign group Momentum is to speak at an event organized by an Israeli embassy proxy next month.
The Jewish Labour Movement announced on Tuesday that Jon Lansman would be among the speakers at their conference next month.
Lansman told The Electronic Intifada that although he is not a member, “I agreed to speak at the JLM conference some time ago and it does not affect my support for the text of the agreed Labour code of conduct” against anti-Semitism.
The JLM has been adamantly opposed to the new code, demanding it be revised to include a defintion of anti-Semitism which would prohibit important criticisms of Israel.
The lineup of speakers announced by JLM also includes several of party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s most hard line opponents.
These include Margaret Hodge, the lawmaker who reportedly defamed Corbyn last month as a “fucking anti-Semite and racist” and right-wing Labour stalwart Wes Streeting.
Hodge was briefly investigated by the party’s disciplinary structures, before the action was dropped – reportedly under threat by a faction of Labour lawmakers that they would break away from the party.
The announcements come amid a report that Lansman is preparing to do a u-turn on Labour’s code of conduct against anti-Semitism.'
