Gabbay wrote that he informed all of his party's staff, members of Knesset, and elected party leaders of the suspension of ties with Corbyn's office.

The party said it could not maintain relations with Corbyn, citing his perceived failure to tackle alleged anti-Semitism within the Labour Party.

Mr Corbyn said the Labor Party should have had the "courtesy" to have spoken to him before severing relations.

Israel's Labor Party has suspended relations with UK Labour over claims that Jeremy Corbyn has allowed "hostility" to the Jewish community.

"It is my responsibility to acknowledge the hostility you have shown to the Jewish community and the anti-Semitic statements and actions you have allowed as leader of the Labour party UK", Israeli Labor Party leader Avi Gabbay wrote in a letter to Corbyn, distributed to the media.

But Labour was hit y a fresh anti-Semitism scandal yesterday after it emerged one of the party's minorities officers posted images comparing Israel to the Nazis.

Corbyn is a staunch supporter of the Palestinians and had previously courted controversy by referring to Hamas and Hezbollah as "friends", something he later said that he regretted.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott announces his candidacy for US Senate
Scott, a multi-millionaire businessman, has served in the governor's mansion since 2011, and is leaving office due to term limits. Trump, in other words, could be a liability in Florida more than in other states - and perhaps for no candidate as much as Scott.

"This, in addition to your very public hatred of the policies of the Government of the State of Israel, many of which regard the security of our citizens and actions of our soldiers - policies where the opposition and coalition in Israel are aligned", the letter by Gabbay continued.

In a message read out at a demonstration outside Downing Street on Saturday, Mr. Corbyn demanded that Prime Minister Theresa May support the United Nation's call for an independent worldwide inquiry.

A number of pro-Corbyn Facebook groups have reportedly posted anti-Semitic material in recent weeks, potentially adding weight to the argument which blames Corbyn for the sentiment in the party. In the past it has tweeted that "Israel is a steaming pile of sewage which needs to be properly disposed of".

The chair of Labour Friends of Israel Joan Ryan MP also wrote to Corbyn, saying that she is "ashamed" that the Israeli Labour Party had been driven to take this step. "I am a strong believer that engaging in meaningful dialogue is crucial to finding effective solutions and resolving disputes and I am clear that such a meeting would be just the start of a fruitful ongoing exchange on eradicating antisemitic behavior and discourse within the Labour party".

"And what that implies [is] what political changes we need to make in order to really be in control of our lives".

In April 2016, Labour parliamentarian Naseem "Naz" Shah was suspended after a United Kingdom political blog unearthed a Facebook post in which she compared Israel to Nazi Germany and suggested that Jews were "rallying" defense of Israel.

However, Corbyn's rhetoric does not appear to match with his actions and many in the British Jewish community are losing their patience.
