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

 PLANS Jeremy Corbyn

Since Corbyn assumed leadership of the Labour party a series of controversies relating to his seemingly one-sided pro-Palestinian rhetoric, failure to stamp out anti-Semitism in his party and past actions, have led to a tumultuous relationship with British Jewry.

Mr Corbyn said the Labor Party should have had the "courtesy" to have spoken to him before severing relations.

The announcement was made via a statement by a party spokesperson, who quoted a letter written by leader Avi Gabbay to Corbyn.

"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 U.K.", Gabbay wrote in a letter to Corbyn, announcing the suspension, Gabbay's spokesman said.

Avi Gabbay, the Israeli Labour leader, sent a formal letter to Mr Corbyn in which he also accused the Labour leader of "very public hatred of the policies of the government of the state of Israel".

"

"Anti-Semitic statements and actions you have allowed as Leader of the Labour Party UK."

".

US Budget Deficit to Surpass $1 Trillion by 2020
The gap between spending and revenues will balloon over 1 trillion dollars in fiscal 2020 and keep expanding for years. Growth will be primarily driven by business investment, consumer spending and federal spending.

Gabbay said that cooperation between the two parties will continue in some areas, but they "cannot retain relations" with Corbyn. I have informed all Labour Israel staff, Members of Knesset, and elected leaders of the Labour Party Israel of the suspension of ties with your office.

Criticism of the Labour leader reached a crescendo earlier this month when 1500 demonstrators protested outside Parliament Square in central London calling for severe punishments against antisemitic members of the party. "I think they should have done me the courtesy of asking me first". "He has failed to respond to their repeated offers of dialogue, including invitations to host him at Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust museum".

The British Campaign Against Antisemitism denounced Corbyn to the Labour Party in a comprehensive disciplinary complaint that accuses Corbyn of bringing his party into disrepute for dismissing antisemitism and flags his membership in several social media groups used as platforms for antisemitic posts.

"Jeremy will be meeting with the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council to listen to their concerns and to discuss how to best root out anti-Semitism from our movement and society".

Over the weekend, the Campaign Against Antisemitism held their own rally outside the Labour Party's London HQ.

The message came a day after nine Gazan Palestinians, including a journalist, were killed during protests at the border with Israel, the second Friday in a row of so-called March of Return protests.
