But some Labour MPs who are critical of Mr Corbyn's leadership fear the anti-Semitism row has already inflicted long-term damage on the party.

"Jews have been in Britain since 1656".

His comments came as Jewish leaders continued to attack Corbyn over the controversy. Sacks is an independent member of the House of Lords.

It came ahead of a crucial NEC meeting todayTUES where Jeremy Corbyn is under pressure from senior party figures, including his shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry, to adopt the full global definition of anti-Semitism.

It came after Mr Field announced he would sit as an independent on Thursday after 40 years representing Labour in the Wirral seat.

i24NEWS revealed that Corbyn met Hamas officials during a visit to Israel and the West Bank in November 2010 that he failed to declare, in breach of parliamentary rules.

She told the Sunday Times: "We should be concentrating on Europe, but they [the Labour leadership] don't give a toss; all they can think about is their internal Labour Party and their hatred of Jews".

On Sunday, ex-prime minister Gordon Brown added his voice to the debate, saying Labour must make a statement by "unequivocally" adopting the guidelines and all the examples.

The issue has opened up deep and bitter divisions within Britain's main opposition party.

Corbyn has said anti-semitism has no place in the Labour Party, but it remains uncertain if the party's executive committee meeting this week to discuss its definition of anti-semitism will endorse the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition in Labour's new code of conduct.

Jewish Labour organisations said they would wait and see to what sort of clarification the NEC would sign up to, although there is frustration among many that antisemitism is being linked to what they argue is a separate foreign policy question about Israel and Palestine.

The Jewish Labour Movement also criticised the outcome of the NEC, tweeting: "We note the election of Willsman to the ruling body of the Labour Party".

Mr Field is facing calls to stand in a by-election after resigning the whip, and is taking legal advice after party sources said it meant he had "automatically opted to resign from the Labour Party", which he disputes.

He said that under Mr Corbyn the party was seeing an "erosion of our core values" and cited "a culture of intolerance, nastiness and intimidation" among local members.

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell said comparisons between Mr Corbyn and Enoch Powell were "just wrong".

The former Prime Minister said the decision was not just about policy but about the "soul" of the party, warning that anti-Semitism was now a "real and present" danger in the UK.

He also said he was confident that the issue of the definition would be "resolved" at the NEC meeting, predicting that "all sides will be satisfied with the proposals". "And I believe this problem must be solved within the Labour Party now", Brown said.

The report said that the so-called Labour "rebels" were hoping to recruit more parliamentarians to join a breakaway and form a new political party, as well as pushing to hold a no-confidence vote against Corbyn.
