UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has “declared war on the Jews,” a top British Jewish leader said in a television interview on Tuesday.

During an i24 News appearance, Marie van der Zyl — the president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews — said of the ongoing antisemitism scandals dogging Corbyn and his party, “We’re feeling nervous, we’re feeling anxious…We’ve never been in this situation, it’s unprecedented.”

“We are fighting this, we are insisting on the international definition of antisemitism being implemented in full,” she added. “We want the show trial of Ian Austin stopped and we want the numerous disciplinary actions that have been pending for years to be completed in a transparent way.”

Corbyn’s “hatred of Israel and Zionism,” van der Zyl noted, “run so deep that he cannot separate that from antisemitism.”
