Manafort worked with Israel to ‘concoct’ antisemitism smear against opposition leader

The decision of former Trump campaign head Paul Manafort to cooperate with the investigation into alleged interference by Russia in the US election campaign has led to a remarkable revelation that has been flagged by leading US journalists.

Deputy Washington editor of the New York Times, Jonathan Weisman, tweeted last night to highlight the fact that Manafort ‘coordinated with a senior Israeli official to concoct charges of anti-Semitism‘ against an opposition leader for political purposes:

The text that Weisman was sharing is below:

Manafort’s confession bears a striking resemblance to footage filmed by an Al Jazeera undercover reporter that revealed Israeli embassy official Shai Masot discussing ‘taking down’ MPs considered unhelpful to Israeli interests:

The Israeli embassy to the UK later denounced Masot’s efforts as ‘unacceptable’ – but the Manafort revelation suggests that Masot was not acting as a maverick.

The relevance of the Manafort revelation to the situation in the UK, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn smeared as antisemitic, is undeniable – but of course, Corbyn’s critics will still deny it and attempt to paint the idea as ‘tinfoil’ conspiracy theory.
