Corbyn compared Israeli occupation of the West Bank to the Nazi takeover of Europe

Jeremy Corbyn was today accused of making a direct comparison between the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Nazi takeover of Europe.

A video has surfaced of him making the ‘appalling’ comment at an event in 2013, when he was still a backbencher.

The statement appears to flout the globally-accepted definition of anti-Semitism which says it is anti-Semitic to compare the Israeli government with the Nazis.

But Labour said Mr Corbyn was referring to all occupations in the Second World War, not just that of Adolf Hitler’s regime.

The Labour leader is facing mounting pressure to come back from his summer holiday to get a grip on the scandal tearing his party apart.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews said Mr Corbyn must stop being ‘invisible’ and ‘come out of hiding’ and get back to Westminster.
