Jeremy Corbyn has appeared to compare Israel to Islamic State at the launch of Labour's antisemitism report.
He said: "Our Jewish friends are no more responsible for the actions of Israel or the Netanyahu Government than our Muslim friends are for those of various self-styled Islamic states or organisations."
A Labour MP who stormed out of a party press conference after being verbally abused by one of Mr Corbyn's grassroots supporters has called on the leader to resign immediately after he failed to intervene.
Jeremy Corbyn earned the right to take up the leadership of the party with a big majority. But he has failed and he has no right or mandate to stay in office despite his failure and take the party down with him. He has integrity and decency and those are qualities you hope to find in a leader, but they don't in themselves make you a leader."
British Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn lost a no-confidence vote following the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union. It is unlikely that Corbyn will be an effective leader for the opposition government since he no longer has that much support from his party. Therefore, he should resign from his position as leader of the Labor Party.
Yes, Jeremy Corbyn should resign as the leader of the British Labor Party. Making statements that appear to draw a comparison between Israel and ISIS at the beginning of a meeting about the problem of antisemitism in the Labor Party is very inappropriate and offensive. History has shown that racist and antisemitic statements made by politicians can inspire their followers to commit acts of hate and violence against minorities, and Corbyn should not remain in his position.
