Whopping 85 Percent of British Jews Believe Corbyn Is Antisemitic


A massive majority of 85 percent of British Jews believe Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn is antisemitic.

The Jewish Chronicle -- the leading Jewish newspaper in the U.K. -- conducted a survey of Jewish attitudes toward Corbyn and Labour, which showed 85.9 percent of Jews see Corbyn as personally antisemitic. Only 8.3 percent disagree.

In addition, 85.6 percent of Jews believe the Labour party itself suffers from very high levels of antisemitism, indicating that they consider the party institutionally racist.

Labour has been beset by antisemitism scandals since Corbyn seized control of the leadership in 2015. Prominent figures have resigned or been suspended, and Corbyn himself has been caught making antisemitic statements.
