Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and the Ongoing Struggle within the UK Labour Party

On October 29, news of former leader Jeremy Corbyn’s sudden shock suspension from the Labour Party spread rapidly across the UK. That morning, a report had been published by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) inquiring into anti-Semitism in the party. In the wake of the report, Corbyn claimed that the scale of anti-Semitism in the party had been ‘dramatically overstated for political reasons’ – and was promptly suspended.
