Israel's Labor cuts ties with Corbyn, citing anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel

Adjust Comment Print

Since Corbyn assumed leadership of the Labour party a series of controversies relating to his seemingly one-sided pro-Palestinian rhetoric, failure to stamp out anti-Semitism in his party and past actions, have led to a tumultuous relationship with British Jewry.

Avi Gabbay, the Israeli Labour leader, sent a formal letter to Mr Corbyn in which he also accused the Labour leader of "very public hatred of the policies of the government of the state of Israel".

He wrote to Corbyn: "It is my responsibility to acknowledge the hostility that you have shown to the Jewish community and the anti-Semitic statements and actions you have allowed as Leader of the Labour Party UK".

Gabbay wrote that he made a decision to take the step ahead of Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day, which recalls the horrors of antisemitism in Europe and Israel's commitment to combating antisemitism of all forms and in all places.

Ahead of Israel's Holocaust Memorial Day which begins on Wednesday night, Israeli Labour leader Avi Gabbay wrote to Jeremy Corbyn telling him of the suspension.

Britain's Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaking after he retained his parliamentary seat in Islington north London, June 9, 2017.

He said: "I think it's council housing, properly funded with direct labour, it's getting the private contractors out of the National Health Service and having it fully funded, properly funded by general taxation, and it's investment in work because I think secure work, where everyone has a place is essential for a coherent society".

The film director said the Labour party would be able to implement a more "coherent society" after the European Union divorce.

"The Labour Party of Israel and the Labour Party UK have a long history of friendship".

Labour sources said Mr Bartley has been suspended from the party yesterday.

"It's just between the Israeli Labour party and Jeremy Corbyn directly, not the wider Labour party and certainly not us".

JEREMY Corbyn has today lost the support of Israel's Labor Party over the ongoing anti-Semitism row - but has gained the support of Nick Griffin over Syria.

The breach follows widespread accusations that the UK Labour Party under Corbyn, who was elected leader in 2015, has been overly tolerant of anti-Semitism within its ranks.

Over the weekend, the Campaign Against Antisemitism held their own rally outside the Labour Party's London HQ.

Gabbay's step came three days after Corbyn called for a review of arms sales to Israel in a message condemning its "illegal and inhumane" actions against Palestinians protesting on the border with Gaza.
