Just so people are aware it isn't a problem just in Labour. It is, sadly, all across the political spectrum. Though so far only the right-wing have shot up synagogues.

As a child someone told me antisemitic jew hate was the crossover point on the political spectrum; where antisemites of all political persuasions are united by only their hate and the conspiracy theories they spread.
I think the reality is more extensive than just the political spectrum.
I've crossed paths with plenty of non-politically affiliated thug antisemites and non-political religious antisemites.

Is it incorrect that Garrard is a pro-Israel lobbyist? I hadn't heard of him until now, but it doesn't look unlikely.

He's clearly a lobbyist, conditionally donating significant amounts of money to political parties. Whether he's pro-Israel isn't so clear, but from wikipedia he's hosted several MPs in Israel and sponsored a Labour Friends of Israel lunch.

Where do you find all these open antisemites? I'm not sure I have every come across one.

It is difficult to see how it is antisemitic to describe the pro-Israel lobbyist who sponsored the Labour Friends of Israel group as a pro-Israel lobbyist, regardless of his religion or ethnicity. Maybe the LibDems felt the virtue-signalling bandwagon was getting away from them and they had to leap on to it before it outran them. They may fall under its wheels.

They felt left out.
