Israeli Labor Party Suspends Ties With Corbyn, Claims He Sanctions Anti-Semitism

Ken Loach

In his letter to the BoD and JLC leaders, Corbyn said:"I appreciate and understand the anger you express and reiterate my determination to fight antisemitism within the Labour party and society at large ..."

And he claimed the boss had a "very public hatred of the policies of the Government of the State of Israel".

This week Corbyn slammed Israel's handling of the protests in Gaza on Friday, calling for the United Nations to launch an investigation into the killings of 29 Palestinians as well as reviewing the UK's sale of arms to Israel. In an open letter, the former wrote that Corbyn has a "conspiratorial worldview in which mainstream Jewish communities are. a hostile enemy".

"It is my responsibility to acknowledge the hostility you have shown to the Jewish community and the anti-Semitic statements and actions you have allowed as leader of the Labour party UK", Israeli Labor Party leader Avi Gabbay wrote in a letter to Corbyn, distributed to the media.

That verdict was thrown out by the judge , who didn't approve of VirnetX lawyers' references to the 2012 trial. In 2017 however, Apple filed an appeal against the USA district court verdict, though it lost the case.

Labour Friends of Israel's Director Jennifer Gerber said today: "We fully understand why the Israeli Labor Party has made a decision to suspend relations with Jeremy Corbyn". In 2009, before becoming UK Labour leader, he invited members from the Hamas and Hezbollah militant groups to speak before Parliament, referring to them as "friends".

Firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and can not be tolerated.

Gabbay wrote that he informed all of his party's staff, members of Knesset, and elected party leaders of the suspension of ties with Corbyn's office.

The latest row over anti-Semitism was sparked when it emerged two weeks ago that Corbyn had posted a Facebook comment in 2012 stating the graffiti artist Kalen Ockerman was "in good company" over his resistance to the demolition of anti-Semitic mural in East London.

Demonstrators carried placards demanding "Zero tolerance for anti-Semitism" and "Labour hold Corbyn to account". "LFI's relationship with the Israeli Labour party remains unaffected and we will continue our close cooperation".

"And what that implies [is] what political changes we need to make in order to really be in control of our lives".

The move came following several steps taken by Corbyn that were interpreted by British Jewish leadership as antisemitic.

The Chair of Labor Party Israel has announced it will be cutting ties with the UK party boss while he "fail [s] to adequately address the anti-Semitism within Labour Party UK".
