Herzog slams Corbyn’s ‘outrageous’ comparison of Israel to IS

The head of Israel’s Labor party, Isaac Herzog, condemns UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s “outrageous” comparison of Israel and the Islamic State.

“Corbyn’s suggestion of moral equivalence between Israel and ISIS is outrageous, unacceptable, and a betrayal of global Labour values,” Herzog writes in a rare Twitter comment in English. “Corbyn’s views represent a consistent hatred of Israel.”

Corbyn made the remarks while discussing the findings of Labour’s inquiry into anti-Semitism in the party.
