The Labour Party’s response – I think it’s pathetic, what they’re trying to do is to denigrate the witnesses rather than to take seriously the evidence of the witnessses, which were very very powerful … They’re very defensive for very good reason, they’ve never taken the issue seriously, I don’t think all of them are anti-semitic themselves, but what they are guilty of is at best complacency about anti-semitism, not understanding that it is as racist to be anti-semitic towards somebody who is of the Jewish faith as it is to be racist towards somebody who’s black or asian. They don’t get that, and critically they conflate concern about the way the Israeli governments in recent years have treated the Palestinians, which let me say I and many Israeli Jews share, into a trope against people of the Jewish faith and against the existence of Israel. And that’s where Jeremy Corbyn I think is, and has led to this terrible permissive regime.”
