Israeli Opposition Leader Urges Corbyn, UK Labor Delegation to Visit Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum

British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn delivers a speech in London on April 14, 2016

The Jerusalem Post reports:

Opposition Leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) penned a letter to UK Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn Saturday, in which he expressed outrage over anti-Semitic remarks expressed recently by some party members, and extended an invitation for a delegation to visit Yad Vashem on behalf of the party and bear witness to anti-Semitism at its core.

“I have been appalled and outraged by the recent examples of anti-Semitism by senior Labor party officials in the United Kingdom…which must act as a red alert and prompt immediate action,” Herzog wrote.

He penned his letter in light of recent comments made by former London Mayor Ken Livingstone during an interview with the BBC last Thursday, alluding to Hitler being a Zionist. “Let’s remember when Hitler won his election in 1932 his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism,” Livingston said.
