(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

A Tory council candidate has said on Facebook that she would never support “The Jew” Ed Miliband.

Tory candidate Gulzabeen Afsar referred to Ed Miliband as “Al Yahud“- which means “The Jew” in Arabic:

tory jew miliband

Here’s the full story from the Jewish News:

EXCLUSIVE: Tory council candidate: I’d never support ‘the Jew’ Miliband

It’s unthinkable I know, but some of the right-wing attacks on Miliband during the election – bacon sandwiches, backstabbing etc – have had nasty anti-semitic undertones:

‘Backstabber’ is an historical antisemitic insult: Tory campaign turns nasty

Could the vitriolic attacks on Ed Miliband be because he’s Jewish?

But perhaps it seems – not so unthinkable after all?
