Senior Religious 'Leader Interferes In UK Election
By ICH & Agencies
Britain’s Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis took an unprecedented stand against the Labour party ahead of next month’s election, urging voters to see the “new poison” that has taken root in the party, and expressing fear for the fate of Jews in the country should Jeremy Corbyn become prime minister.
Polls suggest that just six percent of UK Jews plan to vote Labour. Nearly half say they will “seriously consider” emigrating if Corbyn — a man 87% of those polled believe is an anti-Semite — gets to Downing Street.
"The way in which the leadership of the Labour Party has dealt with anti-Jewish racism is incompatible with the British values of which we are so proud - of dignity and respect for all people. It has left many decent Labour members and parliamentarians, both Jewish and non-Jewish, ashamed of what has transpired." Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said.
Labour responded, rejecting the chief rabbi’s claims and insisting: "Jeremy Corbyn is a lifelong campaigner against anti-semitism and has made absolutely clear it has no place in our party and society and that no one who engages in it, does so in his name."
