UK's Corbyn asks Trump to ensure health service not for sale in trade talks

Israel's Foreign Minister Israel Katz on Thursday expressed hope that UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would lose next week's parliamentary elections due to his anti-Semitic views.Last month, Ghanem Nuseibeh, the head of the Muslims Against Anti-Semitism's nonprofit organization and 23 other prominent activists sent a letter to The Guardian newspaper in which they refused to vote for the Labour party in the December 12 election.

Asked if she would support Labour in an effort to stop Britain leaving the European Union if there was a hung parliament, she said she would, provided that Corbyn was no longer its leader.

He said: "Our party and me do not accept anti-Semitism in any form. obviously I'm very sorry for everything that has happened".

The party leader said sorry twice in 2018, but was criticised for refusing to do so four times in a recent interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil.

It was reignited during the election campaign after the Chief Rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, claimed "a new poison - sanctioned from the very top - had taken root" in Labour. Candidates have been withdrawn by the Liberal Democrats, the Conservatives, and by us, because of it. "We just do not accept it in any form whatsoever".

Corbyn told This Morning he was also open to meeting with members of the Jewish community to discuss the matter.
