Chief Rabbi claims ‘majority of British Jews’ live in terror of Jeremy Corbyn winning election

Writing in The Times, he states the “Jewish community has watched with incredulity as supporters of the Labour leadership have hounded parliamentarians, members and even staff out of the party for challenging anti-Jewish racism”.

He adds: “The way in which the leadership 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.”

He urges every person to vote “with their conscience”.

He then adds: “Be in no doubt, the very soul of our nation is at stake.”

Mr Mirvis claims at least 130 outstanding anti-Semitism cases are being looked at by Labour and thousands more have been reported but remain unresolved.

A Labour spokesman said: “Jeremy Corbyn is a lifelong campaigner against anti-Semitism and has made absolutely clear it has no place in our party and society.

“The 130 figure is inaccurate and it is categorically untrue to suggest there are thousands of outstanding cases.”
