In the space of a few weeks, rows over Russia, Europe and anti-Semitism – three divisive issues that have dogged Corbyn throughout his long career on the left of British politics – have erupted within Labour.Last week, Corbyn, instinctively wary of the EU, which many leftists see as a capitalist club, was criticized by some prominent Labour lawmakers for sacking Owen Smith, a member of the party's "shadow Cabinet," which mirrors the government.This week, British Jewish groups protested against Corbyn outside Parliament accusing the Labour leader, a vocal supporter of Palestinian rights and critic of Israel, of failing to tackle anti-Semitism within Labour ranks.Corbyn may have to come down on Labour members whose support for Palestinians can translate into anti-Jewish comments.Corbyn is unlikely to shift his position dramatically on Brexit, sources said.Corbyn's position on Russia over the nerve agent attack, however, has indeed shifted.Corbyn says he now regrets describing members of those groups as friends.
