COR­BYN UT­TERS THE I-WORD

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

AL­MOST three months into his reign as Labour leader, Jeremy Cor­byn has fi­nally ut­tered the word “Is­rael”.

Hav­ing got through an ad­dress at a Septem­ber Labour Friends of Is­rael re­cep­tion with­out it pass­ing his lips, it did, at last, on Wed­nes­day.

But don’t ex­pect a ma­jor change of po­si­tion — the “Is­rael” in ques­tion was not the Jewish state, but an in­tern at a hous­ing project in east Lon­don who Mr Cor­byn cited dur­ing Prime Min­is­ter’s Ques­tions.
