A crushing majority of UK Jews believe Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is anti-Semitic and the party he leads fosters a profound hatred of Jews, according to a poll conducted by the Jewish Chronicle.
The survey, undertaken by polling company Survation between August 12 and September 4, reveals 85.9 percent of British Jews regard the Labour leader as anti-Semitic, while just 8.3 percent believe he is not.
The poll also showed British Jews held an extremely low opinion of the hard-left Labour Party in general, with a telling 85.6 percent of those polled believing Labour suffered from “very high” levels of anti-Semitism.

The UK Jewish leader said the community is “feeling nervous, we’re feeling anxious, it’s like Jeremy Corbyn has declared war on the Jews at home.
