Israeli Foreign Minister Says He Hopes Corbyn Isn’t Elected

2

Israel’s foreign minister says he hopes the leader of Britain’s Labour Party doesn’t get elected in the country’s upcoming vote.

Israel Katz told Israeli Army Radio on Thursday that he hopes Jeremy Corbyn isn’t brought to power on Dec. 12.

Katz said: “I personally hope he doesn’t get elected.”

He cited a “wave” of anti-Semitism that Corbyn “doesn’t deny” as the reason for his opinion.

Corbyn has struggled to defuse harsh criticism about anti-Semitism leveled at both him and the party in the lead-up to the vote.

While voicing his disapproval of all forms of racism, including anti-Semitism, Corbyn declined repeatedly to apologize during a recent prime-time BBC interview for any anti-Semitism that has occurred in the Labour Party over the past few years.

    “In August 2015, dozens of prominent Jewish activists signed an open letter criticising the paper (the jewish choronicle) for what they viewed as its “character assassination” of Corbyn. They wrote: “Your assertion that your attack on Jeremy Corbyn is supported by ‘the vast majority of British Jews’ is without foundation. We do not accept that you speak on behalf of progressive Jews in this country. You speak only for Jews who support Israel, right or wrong.” They continued, “There is something deeply unpleasant and dishonest about your McCarthyite guilt by association technique. Jeremy Corbyn’s parliamentary record over 32 years has consistently opposed all racism including antisemitism.” Signatories to the letter included Laurence Dreyfus, Selma James, Miriam Margolyes, Ilan Pappé, Michael Rosen and Avi Shlaim.
