The Labor Party was responsible for “Illegal acts of harassment and discrimination” anti-Semites during the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, he concluded a report by the British Equality and Human Rights Commission published this Thursday. Following these conclusions, the former leader was suspended and removed from the party in Parliament.
Jeremy Corbyn has already reacted, guaranteeing that he intends to contest what he calls “political intervention”.
The 130-page report, the result of a 16-month investigation, says it found “significant flaws in the way the Labor Party has dealt with complaints of anti-Semitism over the past four years”.
It is difficult not to conclude that anti-Semitism within the Labor Party could have been fought more effectively if the leadership had chosen to do so, ”say the authors, in a criticism of Corbyn.
At issue are internal lawsuits against militants and leaders accused of discriminatory statements against Jews, that critics and victims complain that they have not been concluded or resulted in the punishment or expulsion of those responsible.
At the root of the sentiment against the Jews is the traditional support of the Labor Party, especially from the left-most wing, to Palestine’s self-determination, holding Israel responsible for the conflict in the Middle East.
The problem led several deputies to leave the party, namely Luciana Berger, who eventually joined the Liberal Democrats, and John Mann, who was recruited by the conservative government to lead a working group on anti-Semitism.
The former labor leader admitted the existence of anti-Semitism in the party and regretted the delay in implementing measures he took to resolve the problem during the time he was in charge of Labor, between 2015 and 2020. “When I became a labor leader in 2015, party processes for handling complaints were not adequate. The reform was then paralyzed by an obstructive party bureaucracy, ”said Corbyn, calling for“ substantial improvements ”from 2018.
The current leader of the Labor Party, Keir Starmer, acknowledged that this is a “Shameful day” to the main opposition force and promised to implement the recommendations made in the report, including a new complaints process independent of management.
“There can be no more missed opportunities. No more refusals or excuses. Under my leadership, ‘Labor’ will act decisively against anti-Semitism in all its forms, ”he promised.
