JERUSALEM (JNS) — Israeli President Reuven Rivlin praised Britain’s Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis on Wednesday and expressed support for his recent article strongly criticizing British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

During a meeting between the two in London, Rivlin thanked Mirvis for his “clear voice and leadership,” the President’s Office said according to AP.

In his article, published on the website of The Times, Mirvis wrote that “just weeks before we go to the polls, the overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety.”

“During the past few years, on my travels through the U.K. and further afield, one concern has been expressed to me more than any other. Of course, the threats of the far right and violent jihadism never go away, but the question I am now most frequently asked is: What will become of Jews and Judaism in Britain if the Labour Party forms the next government?” he said.

According to the report, Rivlin told Mirvis that there is “no room for anti-Semitism in the halls of power,” and that the rabbi’s “clear voice and leadership, particularly in the last few days, fills us all with pride.”

  1. Typical Zionist ideology and strategy, to ignite and claim antisemitism thereafter to hail themselves rescuers . . .

    Kudos to Rabbi Weinberger for his letter to Mr. Corbyn having a “clear voice” that these Yidden offshoots do not represent Klal Yisroel!

      • Your hateful spewing language is evidence that you too hate Jews . . .

        Just a different format of antisemitism . . .

        So you have the strongest army, and the country you call home is shelter infested, it’s about time you face the failure.

        • it’s NK satmar scum who go to gaza and iran to show their support for people who fund and/or plan the attacks to murder Jews who are evil scum. Pablo Christiani, Johannes Pfefferkorn, and Nicholas Donin at least converted before they supported those who wanted to massacre Jews.

  2. PureSatmar_________
    Aren’t you embarrassed that this Wine-Burger letter is a fraud and no such bum exists? And are you so psychotic that you love an antiSemite just because he hates Israel? Please investigate your grandma’s breeder, you’ll be stunned to know to whom you’re related.

  3. Lazy boy, it would be interesting to know if the Times of Israel would apply the same
    logic to the gang of Jewish lawmakers in US who cause Jew hatred by pushing to overthrow a president without evidence of wrongdoing, and are generally in favor of immorality, no borders, heavy burdensome taxes on majority of non Jewish people and despise our Judeo- Christian values.

    • King Bibi has fallen, I definitely feel your pain . . .

      You Chareidim will go to elections again with endless spins and falsehoods in order to justify being part of zionists antisemits which strive to eradicate the holy identity of Am Yisroel
