In an absolutely shocking speech at an event for the Board of Deputies of British Jews, a speaker has called for the “sacrifice” of the socialist British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The unidentified speaker states that “we shall sacrifice him for all the trouble he has caused”, comparing the name “Corbyn” to “korban”, a kosher animal sacrifice.
A korban is an animal such as a bull, sheep, goat, or a dove that has undergone shechita, the Jewish ritual slaughter. The shechita procedure involves the severing of the wind pipe by cutting the neck of the animal.
Despite the shocking comments, the individual is not censured and is warned that the speech is being live broadcast.
