Introduction – Nov 29, 2019
Hours after Britain’s most senior Jewish leader warned that a “poison had taken root” in Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party his remarks were indirectly endorsed by the head of the Church of England.
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis wrote in the Times on Tuesday Nov 26, that: “A new poison sanctioned from the top has taken root in the Labour Party”.
Strong words but later the same day the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, the Church of England’s most senior prelate tweeted in support:
That the Chief Rabbi should be compelled to make such an unprecedented statement at this time ought to alert us to the deep sense of insecurity and fear felt by many British Jews: (Twitter)
However, Justin Welby may not be the most impartial judge on the matter. Although not widely publicised, Justin Welby’s father was Jewish, which makes the archbishop himself half-Jewish.
Of course, in itself being half-Jewish may mean nothing but as Henry Makow has pointed out there are many signs in Welby’s background to suggest that he is a full-blown Illuminati shill. That being the case we would suggest that pronouncements from the Church of England should viewed in the same light as though coming from Downing Street, the Vatican, the EU parliament or the White House: i.e. with a degree scepticism caution.

Justin Welby backs chief rabbi after Labour antisemitism remarks
Harreit Sherwood – The Guardian Nov 26, 2019
The archbishop of Canterbury has in effect backed the chief rabbi’s comments on the Labour leadership’s record on antisemitism with a tweet highlighting the “deep sense of insecurity and fear felt by many British Jews”.
Justin Welby does not explicitly refer to the Labour party, but his intervention a few hours after the chief rabbi’s excoriating public criticism of Jeremy Corbyn is significant.
In an article in the Times, Ephraim Mirvis, Britain’s most senior Jewish leader, accused Corbyn of allowing a “poison sanctioned from the top” to take root in the party, saying the way the Labour leadership had dealt with anti-Jewish racism was “incompatible with the British values of which we are so proud – of dignity and respect for all people”.
Welby posted on Twitter: “That the chief rabbi should be compelled to make such an unprecedented statement at this time ought to alert us to the deep sense of insecurity and fear felt by many British Jews. They should be able to live in accordance with their beliefs and freely express their culture and faith.”
