Corbyn rejects Herzog invitation to visit Israel

British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn wrote his Israeli counterpart Isaac Herzog Thursday, turning down his invitation to come to Israel following a spate of anti-Semitic incidents involving officials in his party.

In a letter Herzog wrote Corbyn April 30, he invited him to Jerusalem to visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum "to better understand the scourge of anti-semitism" after incidents that Herzog said "sicken all those of moral conscience to the core" and "must act as a red alert and prompt immediate action."
