Corbyn led motion to rename Holocaust Memorial Day 'Genocide Memorial Day'

UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has been accused of giving his personal support to anti Israel Hamas terrorists who between them killed upwards of 600 people

UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has been accused of giving his personal support to anti Israel Hamas terrorists who between them killed upwards of 600 people

He added: "I apologise for the concerns and anxiety that this has caused".

However, the party has kept on many Labour members whom Jewish community leaders said engaged in anti-Semitic hate speech.

Labour has struggled with accusations or incidents of anti-Semitism for several years now.

John McDonnell, Labour's Shadow Chancellor, accounts for 21 percent of coverage, Tom Watson, the deputy leader, for 16 percent, and Diane Abbott, the Shadow Home Secretary, for 10 percent.

Speaking to Shelagh Fogarty, Ms Conway, who is also Labour's lead on communities locally, said: "I would urge the Labour leadership, Jeremy Corbyn, to come out and say some words".

A series of scandals and controversies have ensnared the party, culminating with its recently released policy on anti-Semitism which has been condemned - including by members of the party - for omitting Israel-related definitions that have become standard elsewhere and for not embracing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism.

"It really has shaken us to the core really, but we'll resolve it, we've got to".

It's not enough that he's exposed them to death threats and harassment that has led them to move homes seven times . A gunman killed 20 young children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on December 14, 2012.

A Labour party Spokesperson said: "This was a cross party initiative, jointly sponsored by a senior Conservative MP, to emphasise the already broader character of Holocaust Memorial Day".

"I thought we had got to a position where we are able to move on - we're not - we've got to resolve that by September", he said.

One of the examples changed was the IHRA's one saying: "Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis". "In this sensitive area, such language carries a strong risk of being regarded as prejudicial or grossly detrimental to the party".

The Labour leader has apologised for sharing a platform with people who compared Israel's action in Gaza to the Nazis.

Stephen Kinnock, another Labour MP, tweeted: "This is now a full blown crisis for our party". "I am not sure how he got himself into that situation but I am pleased he apologised", he said on BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

"But that is the starting point and I believe Jeremy Corbyn has the ability and the authority to do it and I hope he does so".
