Nope, I still don't think Corbyn is necessarily antisemitic, I do agree with what Howard Jacobson said:
Jeremy Corbyn it’s a classic case of someone who has been brought up just to assume that that case of Israel as an imperial power in the pay of the Americans and the westerns. An oppressive imperial power. He was just fed on that, he’ll never change that. It’s like milk. To ask him to change his mind on Israel is like asking him to approve of people that go to public school. It can’t be done, it’s part of his genetic makeup.And of course this easily predicts his behavior patterns, like this one:
Jeremy Corbyn rebuffed calls Sunday to denounce contacts with terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah...All this doesn't make him exceptional. But to think that in XXI century a good part of British public would support something as unbelievable and sick as this?
