Archbishop of Canterbury Prays at Western Wall in Jerusalem, Condemns Anti-Semitism

(Christian Today-UK) James Macintyre - The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, prayed with British Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis at the Western Wall in Jerusalem on Wednesday. Welby later noted: "Within European culture, the root of all racism, I think, is found in anti-Semitism. It goes back more than 1,000 years in Europe." "Within our Christian tradition, there has been century upon century of these terrible, terrible hatreds in which one people, who at the same time have contributed more to our culture as a people than almost any other that one can identify, that one people are also hated more specifically, more violently, more determinedly, more systematically than any other people."
