UK: 67% of Jews fear Jeremy Corbyn leadership victory

Via Jewish Chronicle:
Almost seven in 10 British Jews are concerned about the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn becoming leader of the Labour Party, an exclusive JC poll has revealed.

The frontrunner’s views on Hamas and Hizbollah, and association with Holocaust denier Paul Eisen, have also caused extreme worry — with over 80 per cent saying they are concerned about his positions.

The polling, conducted earlier this week, reveals the depth of anxiety within the Jewish community about Labour’s future direction.

Asked how they feel about Mr Corbyn becoming leader, 67 per cent say they are “concerned”, with only 13 per cent responding “unconcerned”.

Mr Corbyn was the runaway favourite as ballot papers were sent to Labour members this week.   more
