A Jewish activist organisation has duped Jeremy Corbyn fans into calling him unfit for office by making them believe comments said by the Labour leader about Jews were actually made by Boris Johnson.
The video made by the Israel Advocacy Movement shows Labour supporters being presented with the Labour leader’s controversial comments about Jewish people – but they are told they were said by Mr Johnson.
After they all claim that Mr Johnson should be forced to stand down, the filmmaker reveals the comments were actually made by Mr Corbyn.
The revelations caused a mix of reactions, with some expressing shock and disgust, while others started to spout anti-Semitism themselves.
Among the controversies used to trick supporters in the video is Mr Corbyn’s endorsement of a century-old book suggesting banks were controlled by the Jews.
The Labour leader wrote the foreword for a new edition of JA Hobson’s Imperialism: A Study, in which the author argues European finance was controlled ‘by men of a single and peculiar race’.
In 2011, Mr Corbyn called the book a ‘great tome’, a quote used by the filmmaker and attributed to Mr Johnson in a bid to trick Corbyn supporters taking part.
How would Labour supporters react if Boris Johnson was responsible for Corbyn's antisemitism?We went to a left-wing anti-racist protest to find out.#NeverCorbynPs.

One shocked supporter replies: Well, what can I say? I don’t know much about it but the Jews have got a lot of power and a lot of money, haven’t they?
‘They do manipulate things; power is money.’
Another supporter, after expressing shock at the revelation, asks: ‘Is that true? I mean, I still think vote Labour.’
The filmmaker then asks another supporter about a recent poll that found 50 per cent of British Jews would think about leaving the UK if Corbyn was elected.
She says: ‘Where are they going to go, to Palestine? Why are they scared of him? Because they’ve got off-shore accounts and they don’t want to pay tax.’
It comes after Mr Corbyn rejected claims he has made Labour a ‘refuge’ for anti-Semites today amid renewed accusations the party has failed to deal with the issue.
