"I write to inform you of the temporary suspension of all formal relations between the Israel Labor Party and the Leader of the Labor Party UK", he wrote.
While there are many areas where our respective parties can and will cooperate, we cannot retain relations with you, Leader of the Labour Party UK, while you fail to adequately address the anti-Semitism within Labour Party UK.
"And yet it is my responsibility to acknowledge the hostility you have shown the Jewish Community, and the anti-Semitic statements you have allowed as leader of the Labour Party in the United Kingdom", he adds.
Israel's opposition Labor party said Tuesday it was suspending relations with British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, accusing him of showing hostility to the Jewish community and allowing anti-Semitic statements and actions from his party officials.
The leader is a vocal advocate for Palestinian rights and a long time critic of Israeli government policies. Corbyn called Hezbollah and Hamas his friends in 2009 and said it was an honor to host representatives from those terrorist groups in parliament.
Most recently, he condemned Israel for its "inhumane" killing of Palestinians on its border with Gaza.
In a message read out at a demonstration outside Downing Street on Saturday, Mr. Corbyn demanded that Prime Minister Theresa May support the United Nation's call for an independent worldwide inquiry.
Firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and can not be tolerated.
Last week, Corbyn attended a Passover Seder organized by a left-wing Jewish group that openly calls for Israel's destruction. In the past it has tweeted that "Israel is a steaming pile of sewage which needs to be properly disposed of".
Demonstrators carried placards demanding "Zero tolerance for anti-Semitism" and "Labour hold Corbyn to account". "I am a strong believer that engaging in meaningful dialogue is crucial to finding effective solutions and resolving disputes and I am clear that such a meeting would be just the start of a fruitful ongoing exchange on eradicating antisemitic behaviour and discourse within the Labour party".
"And what that implies [is] what political changes we need to make in order to really be in control of our lives".
This comes amid several recent revelations involving party members, including Corbyn's own apparent support of a mural with anti-Semitic undertones, have led to protests against his leadership from sections of the Jewish community.
"A very powerful signal of the anger and deep unease felt by Israeli Labour politicians at increasing antisemitism in the UK Labour party and Jeremy Corbyn's inability to understand his role allowing antisemitism to flourish and his unwillingness to properly tackle it".
