The far-leftwing activist group, “Hope Not Hate”, have been forced to apologise and been ordered to pay damages to a Jewish woman after falsely accusing her of being among a group who attacked a London socialist bookshop.
The organisation published an article in August 2018 claiming that there was video evidence Sharon Klaff was among a group of around 12 who entered Booksmarks in Bloomsbury as staff were closing and filmed themselves chanting slogans.
Ms Klaff, a pro-Israel activist, took legal action forcing Hope Not Hate to apologise to her in a statement read out at the Royal Courts of Justice on Wednesday morning.
Hope Not Hate was also ordered to pay damages and legal fees of approximately £50,000.
Ms Klaff said it had been a “very difficult time”, saying Hope Not Hate’s article caused “deliberate attacks from people who assumed it was true just because Hope Not Hate said it”.
Hope Not Hate have often been caught out producing and publishing fake news. They target conservatives under the pretence of “anti-fascism”. Tommy Robinson has often found himself on the receiving end of their smears.
Heck, earlier this month they claimed that I “deliberately stirred up tensions with police” in London.
As hard as it is, most of us ignore these radical leftists who continually defame anyone they disagree with.
Well done to Sharon Klaff for taking them on.
Sharon said in a statement:
“This is not only a victory for me, but for the truth, for honesty and integrity and for all those who support what I and my fellow activists do in outing antisemitic hatred for Jews and Israel.
Amen to that.
