Can you imagine a Corbyn led New Socialist Party, it would be like a scene out of Citizen Smith!

Let’s hope they do all bugger off, good riddance, they’re a poison within the Labour Party.
 
Israel being secretly behind all wrong doing is used as a more general metaphor for the familiar trope of Jews conspiring secretly and being behind all wrongdoing.
So Jews protesting in Israel against Netanayhu and his corrupt dealings are what? Anti-Jewish, anti-Semitism, anti-Israel or just anti-bad and wrong?

These things are in no way comparable.

Campaigning against specific, real policies of the government of Israel is entirely different to casually imagining evils elsewhere are attributable to them. The latter is often used as a way for blaming the ills of the world on Jewish conspiracy.

Right, so calling out American police practices is a greater crime than those practices actually being carried out? OK, gotcha.

Everyday police repression of Palestinians is real. Peake has been campaigning against the occupation for years, and supporting grassroots Palestinian organisations in her area as well as using her platform to highlight the issues. Could you let us know your criteria for legitimate resistance and protest, please?

Peake acknowledged her mistake, “I feel it’s important for me to clarify that, when talking to The Independent, I was inaccurate in my assumption of American Police training & its sources,”

I have no Idea what point you're trying to make now - that she was wrong to admit her mistake, wrong that it was an error?

How this is relevant to campaigning for Palestinian rights is mysterious to me.
