    British Home Secretary Sajid Javid on Sunday suggested that Jeremy Corbyn should quit as Labour leader following controversy over his visit to a cemetery in Tunisia containing memorials to Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorists, the Daily Mail reports. Questions were raised over Corbyn’s 2014 trip after the Daily Mail published pictures of the Labour leader holding a wreath near the graves of some of those terrorists who were responsible for the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Labour said that Corbyn had already made clear he was paying his respects to the victims of a 1985 Israeli...

    Video @JeremyCorbyn British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn acknowledged on Sunday that anti-Semitism has surfaced in the party and apologized for “the hurt that has been caused to many Jewish people.” His statement came in a three-minute video posted on social media on Sunday. “Anyone who denies this has surfaced in our party is clearly actually wrong and contributing to the problem. I acknowledge there is a real problem of anti-Semitism that Labour is working to overcome,” he said. Corbyn acknowledged that “we have been too slow in processing disciplinary cases of, mostly online, anti-Semitic abuse by party members. We’re acting...

    The latest sign of the death of the "moderate" Democrat. Labour-Style Antisemitism Takes over the Democratic Party The latest sign of the death of the "moderate" Democrat. August 3, 2018 Ari Lieberman    In 2010, Britain’s current Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, hosted an event which facilitated a tour for a shadowy group called the “International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network.” The entire event was predicated on Holocaust revisionism and revolting comparisons between Israel and the Nazis. During the course of the event, one of the speakers likened Israel’s defensive measures in the Gaza Strip to the Nazi treatment of Jews in...

    Labour was on the brink of civil war last night over anti-Semitism. The party endured a fevered day of briefing and counter-briefing following the revelation that Jeremy Corbyn hosted an event comparing the Israeli government to the Nazis. And last night two new pieces of footage surfaced of the Labour leader making controversial comments, both praising the release of Hamas terrorists on Iranian TV in 2012, and two years earlier comparing Israel's blockade of Gaza to Nazi atrocities. It comes amid the fall-out from Mr Corbyn's refusal to sign up to the full internationally recognised definition of anti-Semitism - which...

    Calls grow for Peter Willsman to be expelled after tape emerges of his remarks at meeting on anti-Semitism guidelines, but party declines to discipline him, accepts apology instead An audio recording has emerged of a senior member of the UK Labour party telling an executive committee meeting that allegations of anti-Semitism in the party are being made up by “Jewish Trump fanatics,” as the party continues to be roiled by accusations of tolerating anti-Jewish sentiment. Peter Willsman made the comments during a meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee earlier this month when it approved controversial new guidelines on anti-Semitism,...

    Labour’s Shadow Chancellor and right-hand man to party leader Jeremy Corbyn has said it is his “job” to “overthrow capitalism” and “radically” transform society, whilst praising the former leader of socialist Venezuela. John McDonnell repeatedly and emphatically backed bringing down the UK’s system of free enterprise and trade in an interview with the BBC, as well as calling for private firms to hand over their profits to the state. The man who Labour would put in charge of the Treasury, tasked with running Britain’s economy, said he aimed to transform society “in a way that radically changes the system”....

    Jeremy Corbyn is facing questions over why it took him four days to sack his hard-left disciplinary chief after she defended a Holocaust denier. Christine Shawcroft was forced out of her post after it emerged that she had e-mailed colleagues to demand the activist be let back into the party. But Labour MPs are now calling for her to be removed from the NEC altogether and kicked out of the Labour Party - and warn that if she is not then Mr Corbyn will be seen as a 'hypocrite'. Meanwhile, the Labour leader sparked fresh fury today by refusing to...

    Talks between Jeremy Corbyn and the Jewish Museum in London on a speech by the leader of the British Labour Party have broken down. The party, beset by allegations of anti-Semitism, approached the Jewish Museum with a plan to host a speech on the issue, the London-based Jewish Chronicle first reported on Thursday. Corbyn also has been fighting accusations of harboring anti-Semitic sentiments. But on Friday the Chronicle reported the speech was off following a disagreement over who would be invited to attend. Last month, the party’s ruling body and leadership endorsed a code of conduct that is based on...

    The leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said on Friday there was a “real problem” of anti-Semitism in his party which he would root out, but he also hit back at strong criticism of Labour from Jewish newspapers. In an article written for The Guardian newspaper, Corbyn stopped short of agreeing to adopt in full an internationally accepted definition of anti-Semitism, along with a series of examples, as sought by Jewish groups. Corbyn, a veteran campaigner for Palestinian rights and a critic of Israel, has been hit by accusations that Labour has tolerated anti-Semitism among some of its...

    The leftist ruling body of Britain’s Labour Party has voted not to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism in its code of conduct, bringing relations between the Jewish community and the party to a new low since socialist Jeremy Corbyn became leader. (snip) At a meeting hosted by the Stop the War coalition in 2009, Corbyn referred to Lebanese terror organisation Hezbollah and Palestinian terror group Hamas as “friends”. Calling Hezbollah “an organisation that is dedicated towards the good of the Palestinian people and bringing about long-term peace and social justice”, Corbyn said it was “really a big, big historical...

    Theresa May taunted Jeremy Corbyn that he had 'failed' today after the Tories held key London seats in local elections and made gains in other parts of the country. In the biggest test of public opinion since the general election, Labour's efforts to wrest the strongholds of Westminster, Wandsworth and Barnet from the Tories fell flat. In Barnet, where Labour needed just one seat to secure control, the Tories entrenched their position - with defeated councillors launching a furious attack on Mr Corbyn for failing to get a grip on the anti-Semitism crisis. Labour also came up short in crucial...

    On Thursday British voters will go the polls in councils and regions across the country to vote in the latest round of UK local elections, in what will be a major test of Theresa May's leadership. Polls will open from 07:00 to 22:00 in 150 English councils, with all of London's 32 boroughs also up for grabs. A total of 4,500 seats will be contested across the country. The prime minister has had a difficult six months, losing four members of her cabinet and suffering a growing number of parliamentary defeats. As a result some commentators predict May's Conservative party...

    Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is ashamed to say “England” for fear of appealing to racists, a damning party report says. The English Labour Network — set up by Labour moderate MPs — ordered a study to look at how to champion patriotism. But the group, which was founded last year, found that Labour is too scared to mention England, or celebrate St. George’s Day — which is today. The report warns: “Labour’s biggest single problem is we often don’t mention England even when talking about England.” It adds: “Some activists are uncertain about celebrating St. George’s Day or reflecting English...

    For most of the 20th century, most British Jews voted for the Labour Party. It seemed like a natural fit. This was a party that championed religious minorities, emphasized workers’ rights, and condemned anti-Semitism—all stances that appealed to a Jewish population that grew along with immigration from Europe. Yet now, a spate of anti-Semitic scandals is plaguing the left-wing party, and many British Jews are fed up with its leadership’s perceived failure to address the problem.

    British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Monday wrote to Jewish leaders that he is a “militant opponent” of anti-Semitism. Corbyn’s letter to the Board of Deputies and Jewish Leadership Council came after British Jewish leaders sent an open letter to the Labour party in which they wrote that Corbyn had “sided with anti-Semites rather than Jews.” The letter sent to Member of Parliament John Cryer, chair of the Parliamentary Labour Party, said, “Today, leaders of British Jewry tell Jeremy Corbyn that enough is enough. We have had enough of hearing that Jeremy Corbyn ‘opposes anti-Semitism,’ whilst the mainstream majority of...

    Theresa May’s government has admitted that “a significant portion” of the more than 400 Islamic State fighters who have returned to Britain are at large, unpunished, having been deemed “no longer of national security concern”. The admission came in response to a question in the House of Commons by Labour MP John Woodcock, who demanded to know why the Government is refusing to release figures on the number of returned jihadists being prosecuted, despite having previously provided them. “Are more than 400 of those returning individuals in jail or going through the court system? We simply do not know, because...
