The ‘Sussex Friends of Israel’ Twitter account is full of bile against Jeremy Corbyn. You have to scroll a long way down its Twitter feed as of this moment to find a tweet that isn’t directly about the Labour leader – and even then, it looks indirectly about him.
The politics of its comments are not hard to discern and it seems to consider being a friend of Israel amounts to a single issue at the moment – yet it seems to consider itself a serious source of comment.
So this video of a founder member being abusive to four people innocuously leafleting outside a shop five or so years ago is something they probably don’t want to see widely shared:
Then again, they might be proud of it – the group has been accused of association with unsavoury behaviour toward protesters previously.
The SKWAWKBOX has been unable to find contact details for Mr Cobbs to invite him to comment. He has previously called a Jewish organisation antisemitic for asking him for comment about an interview in which the Jewish Chronicle thought English Defence League members praising the racism of the Israeli government were representatives of Sussex Friends of Israel.
