COUNTDOWN star Rachel Riley yesterday warned that some Labour members see Jews as “the enemy”.
The maths whizz said Labour has become institutionally anti-Semitic under Jeremy Corbyn.
The star is Jewish and has suffered a torrent of vile abuse online for speaking out on the racism.
And she was met with a fresh barrage of hate from trolls at the weekend for tweeting her sympathies for the victims of the New Zealand terror attack.
Speaking in Parliament yesterday, she said “beyond a shadow of a doubt” Labour is anti-Semitic.
She said: “The key thing for me was when the breakaway MP said this is not our party any more – they’ve got the keys.
'WITHOUT A DOUBT'
“They’ve taken over the whole structure of the party and the whole disciplinary procedure, people who at best don’t understand anti-Semitism and at worst participate in it are on the disciplinary panel.”
Miss Riley said a Labour member told her of a party meeting where ‘other Labour people say that tribalism can drive the Labour party by giving them an enemy, which at the moment is the Jews’.
She added: “I get abuse daily. This is happening behind closed doors – it is happening to a lot of people. And I think people genuinely don’t understand the scale.
“Because I’m speaking out about this I’m told I’m an Islamophobe – it’s driving hate.”
She spoke out at the launch of a bombshell report by Professor Alan Johnson which found that Labour has become institutionally anti-Semitic.
Prof Johnson, research fellow at the British Israel and Communications Research Centre, found the racism exists “from top to bottom” of Labour.
A Labour spokesman said they “completely reject claims of institutional anti-Semitism".
