Jeremy Corbyn has released a video in response to the Jewish community’s concerns.
Gideon Falter, Chairman of Campaign Against Antisemitism, said: “Jeremy Corbyn has released yet another bland statement devoid of any apology for his own antisemitism or promises of specific actions. In his Guardian article on Friday he called our concerns ‘overheated rhetoric’ and in this video he says that our concerns must not be dismissed. It is just another contradictory, hypocritical, insincere attempt to whitewash his own role as the author of this nightmare. Jeremy Corbyn is an antisemite and under his leadership the Labour Party has become institutionally antisemitic and an existential threat to British Jewry.”
There is no place for antisemitism in the Labour Party. We must drive it out of our movement for good. pic.twitter.com/V1voY75yz4
