The leader of the British National Party has been drumming up support among the country’s anti-Semites, taking to Twitter to declare that “ignorance of Zionist manipulation of politics makes it easier for them to drag us into their wars”.2

In a series of tweets, Griffin singled out pro-Israel Education Secretary Michael Gove, neo-conservative commentator Douglas Murray and the English Defence League (EDL) Jewish Division leader James Cohen as warmongers.

The Barnet-born BNP chairman, who is a Member of the European Parliament, also rubbished the UK Independence Party (UKIP) for “chasing kosher funding,” declaring that “only the BNP will ban ritual slaughter!”
