UK Labour leader calls accusations of anti-Semitism ‘hurtful,’ ‘offensive’

The United Kingdom’s Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, denied accusations that he is anti-Semitic on Sunday.

“I do find that actually quite hurtful and quite offensive,” Corbyn told the BBC regarding a British rabbi’s accusation that Corbyn has made the most offensive comments since an infamous speech by late politician Enoch Powell.

Last month, the rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, condemned statements Corbyn made regarding British Zionists, calling Corbyn “an anti-Semite” who has “given support to racists, terrorists and dealers of hate.”
