'Dame Margaret Hodge hit out at Labour last night for ignoring a dossier of violent anti-Semitic abuse directed against her – including a call for Hezbollah to murder her.
The Labour MP, who is Jewish, revealed that she contacted the police after she was accused of being a ‘NazIsrael apologist’ and a ‘pro-Zionist Trojan horse’ by supporters of Jeremy Corbyn.
The catalogue of abuse was also sent to Labour, but while the police responded by charging one of the perpetrators, Labour has not contacted the MP at all.
Another online message – out of almost 200 collected by Dame Margaret and sent to the police – suggested she should be killed by Middle Eastern terrorists.
It said: ‘Margaret Hodge is a Zionist pig... and hopefully Hezbollah will catch up with the bitch.’ Militant group Hezbollah was once described as ‘friends’ by Mr Corbyn.
MPs accuse the Labour leadership of failing to tackle anti-Semitism amid reports that dozens of former members suspended for offending Jews are now back in the party.
Many of the abusers identified themselves online as supporters of Mr Corbyn or the hard Left.
Last night, Dame Margaret asked why it was that the police had taken action when she contacted them last year, but none of the Labour members responsible had been expelled by her party.
Labour’s general secretary told MPs yesterday that it was impossible to stamp out anti-Jewish racism from the party.
Jennie Formby, a key ally of Mr Corbyn, refused to say how many cases of anti-Semitism the party was still dealing with.'#
