Left wing groups ‘care more about hating Israel’ than they do about fighting anti-Semitism

The Community Security Trust (CST) has claimed that a lack of support from left wing anti-racism groups has led to an increase of anti-Semitic incidents in the UK. The charity, which “protects British Jews from anti-Semitism and related threats”, claim that 2016 was the worst year it has recorded for anti-Jewish incidents. CST director of communications Mark Gardner told IBTimes UK that the ongoing anti-Semitism controversy within the Labour Party has also helped increase these incidents. Feb 2, 2017

Donald Trump calls Obamas Australian immigration policy a ‘dumb deal’ in Twitter rampage

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Thursday (2 February) he had spoken candidly with US President Donald Trump, but would not confirm a Washington Post report that Trump had berated him over a refugee swap deal and cut the telephone call short. The deal was agreed late last year between Australia, which has fought alongside US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the administration of former President Barack Obama. As part of the deal, Washington agreed to resettle up to 1,250 asylum seekers held in offshore processing camps on tiny Pacific islands in Papua New Guinea and Nauru. In return, Australia would resettle refugees from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Feb 2, 2017
