It comes after Mr Corbyn has faced protests and widespread criticism for turning a blind eye to anti-Semitism among his supporters.

Writing to the leaders of the Board of Deputies of British Jews (BoD) and of the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC), Jonathan Arkush and Jonathan Goldstein respectively, Corbyn said he accepted the organizations' agenda for a meeting. "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 behaviour and discourse within the Labour party".

A letter sent to Corbyn, who is avowedly pro-Palestinian, also stated that his "public hatred" of Israel's state policies acted as a deterrent to any constructive relations.

He says there will be a "temporary suspension of all formal relations" between the two parties, saying they can not continue "while you fail to adequately address the anti-Semitism in the Labour Party".

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. In 2009, before becoming UK Labour leader, he invited members from the Hamas and Hezbollah militant groups to speak before Parliament, referring to them as "friends". "Firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and can not be tolerated".

Israel's Labor Party has cut ties with Jeremy Corbyn's office after accusing the Labour leader of hostility towards Jews and allowing "anti-Semitic statements and actions".

HUNDREDS of people gathered outside Labour's headquarters in central London yesterday to protest against anti-Semitism in the party. Whilst Angela Smith MP described it as a "blatant dismissal of the case made for tackling antisemitism".

Last week, Corbyn attended a Passover Seder organized by a left-wing Jewish group that openly calls for Israel's destruction. In the past it has tweeted that "Israel is a steaming pile of sewage which needs to be properly disposed of".

Demonstrators carried placards demanding "Zero tolerance for anti-Semitism" and "Labour hold Corbyn to account". "Clearly this proves that the Jewish Labour Movement's work is more important than ever, and we're not going anywhere".

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