Jewish groups savage Corbyn over Labour’s anti-Semitism

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been told he must deal with anti-Semitism within his party, days after the left-wing leader was forced to apologise for defending an anti-Semitic  drawing.

Corbyn has said he is ‘deeply sorry’ for the pain caused – but Jewish leaders want real action to be taken against a party with a chequered record on anti-Semitism.

Mr Corbyn said he would be meeting representatives of the Jewish community to “rebuild” confidence in his party.

However, the organisations behind the open letter are planning a protest outside Parliament on Monday.


The letter – drawn up by the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council – said there has been a “repeated institutional failure” to properly address anti-Semitism.

It accuses Mr Corbyn of being unable to “seriously contemplate anti-Semitism, because he is so ideologically fixed within a far left worldview that is instinctively hostile to mainstream Jewish communities”.
