Statement on the Israeli Labour Party severing ties with the leader of the UK Labour Party:
The announcement by the Israeli Labour Party that it is severing ties with the leader of @UKLabour, Jeremy Corbyn, is unprecedented, shocking but unsurprising.
An undeniable schism has opened between the UK Labour Party leadership and the Israeli Labour leadership, which reflects the breakdown of the UK Labour Party’s relationship with both the British Jewish community and its counterparts overseas.
Labour Against Antisemitism would like to offer our thanks to the Israeli Labour Party for their solidarity and support at this time. We appreciate that the decision must have been a very hard one.

Statement from Labour Against Antisemitism:

Labour Claim of 70 Outstanding Antisemitism Cases Dismissed by Activist Group – Over 1,000 Members Reported Since September 2016

Between September 2016 and June 2017 at least 750 members were reported to the compliance unit by members of Labour Against Antisemitism.
