JEREMY Corbyn is meeting Jewish groups to ask them to stop being bad people and provoking his supporters.
The Labour leader is meeting representatives of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council to show them a better way, called ‘socialism’.
He said: “I bet you didn’t know this: Karl Marx was a Jew. And he was the greatest person ever to have lived.
“So you don’t have to be a rapacious capitalist, or an occupying colonialist benefiting from a racist system of apartheid, or any of the other bad things you’ve been forced into by our unequal society.
“You could be your own people, and those people would support Jeremy Corbyn uncritically. Not only would you not face justifiable anti-Semitism on social media, you’d be happier in yourselves.”
He added: “If you could realise that your religion is wrong and discriminatory and give up on it that would be fantastic.
“I’m just trying to help you.”
