Labour Friends of Israel has scrapped plans to host a stand at the party’s conference this weekend, because of antisemitic abuse from delegates.

The organisation usually promotes itself at the annual gathering, but is afraid to put its staff in the firing line of hostility from some of the thousands of people who attend.

In a statement, Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) criticised “the failure of Jeremy Corbyn to do anything” to curb “the ongoing abuse of Jewish party members”.
