Corbyn Branded A ‘Liar’ In New Anti-Semitism Row
Jeremy Corbyn was heckled and branded a “liar” during his speech at the Jewish Labour Movement’s Chanukah party on Wednesday night after he claimed there was “zero tolerance” of antisemitism within the Labour Party.
The news came as Mr Corbyn was faced with claims that he snubbed a Labour Friends Of Israel meeting in favour of parties organised by the Unite union and Momentum. He also faced public criticism from a leading member of the Israeli government. Public Security Minister Gilad Erden highlighted Mr Corbyn’s past friendliness with Hamas:
“We recognise and we see that there are anti-semitic views in many of the leadership of the current Labour Party.
“We hope it will be changed, that they will come to the right decisions about people in their party who don’t understand that Hamas is a recognised terror organisation, that you cannot have a regular relationship with a terror organisation.”
Anti-semitism is one of the many undercurrents of nastiness within the Labour Party which shows how desperately unfit to govern it truly is.
