TWO prominent Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany have marked their 90th birthday by condemning the “relentless attacks” on Jeremy Corbyn.
Twins Frank and Ralph Land, who were born in Berlin but fled to Britain in April 1939, criticised the “false and malicious accusations of anti-semitism” that they believe are intended to silence criticism of the Israeli government.
The Land twins, who were survivors of the Kristallnacht pogroms of November 1938, said: “We know what anti-semitism looks and feels like from our Jewish childhood in 1930s Berlin.
“The relentless attacks on Jeremy Corbyn for his support for Palestinian rights are a disgrace and bring no credit on the Jewish organisations, mass media and Labour MPs who mount them.”
The twins both restated their support for Mr Corbyn’s leadership of Labour, and called on Labour MPs to “work in unity” towards achieving the goals of “combating inequality and injustice in Britain and across the globe.”
