Jeremy Corbyn Rated Top Anti-Semite of 2019 by Simon Wiesenthal Center

British opposition Labour Party's John McDonnell said on Sunday he was anxious that accusations of failing to tackle anti-Semitism had damaged his party's election campaign.

"This is proof of the robust action the party is taking to root out anti-Semitism", the party added.

Labour said claims about the large numbers of outstanding complaints were "categorically untrue" and said the people involved would now be expelled in weeks rather than months as a result of new powers introduced by Corbyn.

But sections of the Jewish community seem not to be convinced, with the US -based Simon Wiesenthal Center, named for the late Holocaust survivor who tracked people involved in the 20th-century genocide after Germany's defeat in 1945, identifying Corbyn's Labour as the number one threat to the Jewish people.

The disciplinary files leaked by the media offer the first comprehensive insight into how Labour has dealt with its anti-Semitism issue over the past few months, implying no sufficient action has ensued despite Jeremy Corbyn's pledges to this end. "We just do not accept it in any form whatsoever", he added. "We've done everything, I think, we can possibly do, we've apologised to the Jewish community".

"It wasn't so many people, it was a small number, but I don't care how many people, one anti-Semite in our party is too many, and what we're doing is we've started kicking them out in numbers", he said.

"My understanding is well below that, and there will be a report in the normal way published in January".

But Mr McDonnell said: "The opinion polls have been consistently trending towards [Labour]".

On Tuesday, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn admitted on ITV's This Morning that he was "very sorry for everything that has happened" regarding anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

The Labour leader has struggled to defuse criticism from Jewish groups in the run-up to the December 12 vote.
