Pray for Today's British Election: Brexit, Anti-Semitism on the Ballot

Dale Hurd : Dec 12, 2019  CBN News

Britain voted to leave the European Union in 2016, then saw their leaders bungle it, delay it, and effectively deny it. But voters now have another chance to send a message to Parliament.

But another issue has crept into the race: anti-Semitism.

Polling showed the race has tightened up at the last minute, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned an indecisive outcome could lead to a hung Parliament. But oddsmakers were still favoring Johnson's Conservative Party to win.

Rupert Adams of William Hill Online Betting said, "Momentum has switched but it doesn't change the fact that as it stands all the betting suggests that it will be a Conservative majority."

At stake is nothing less than the United Kingdom's future with or without the European Union.

Britain voted to leave the European Union in 2016, then saw their leaders bungle it, delay it, and effectively deny it. But voters now have another chance to send a message to Parliament.

Johnson has already been forced by Parliament to do what he vowed he wouldn't do: delay Brexit.

"I'd rather be dead in a ditch," Johnson said in October about renegotiating Brexit. "We will not allow this paralysis to continue."

If Johnson's Conservatives win a clear majority in Parliament, they're likely to move quickly to pass a Brexit withdrawal agreement. If Labour is somehow able to form a government, there will likely be another national referendum on whether to leave the EU.

But the Labour Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn have been rocked by charges of anti-Semitism. The Simon Wiesenthal Center this week labeled Corbyn "the biggest global threat to Jews."

Corbyn replied to the charges, saying, "I completely reject that. I became leader of the party, there were no processes in place to deal with anti-Semitism. We introduced rules to deal with it, we introduced an appeals procedure to deal with it, and we produced an education process..."

But whistleblowers told a London Sunday Times investigation that those claims were "lies." Corbyn has embraced Hamas, Iran, compared Israel to the Nazis, and is accused of allowing anti-Semites with Nazi-like views to remain in the party. (Screengrab image: via CBN News)

Tom Bower, author of Dangerous Hero, said, "Corbyn has been exposed. He's been exposed as an anti-Semite, exposed as a Marxist, exposed as someone who doesn't listen to the heartlands about Brexit."

Under Corbyn's leadership, many Labour voters outside of London have switched to the Brexit Party or the Conservative Party.

Tim Bale, professor of politics at Queen Mary University, said, "Polling suggests that he's the most unpopular opposition leader that we've ever seen since polling began."

If Johnson goes on to win a clear majority, his goal is to take Britain out of the EU by January 31 next year. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
