British Labour Party Leader: We Have to Root Out Anti-Zionist Anti-Semitism

(Jewish News-UK) The head of the British Labour Party, Sir Keir Starmer, told Labour Friends of Israel on Tuesday: "On the day I became leader of the Labour party 18 months ago, my first act was to acknowledge and apologize for the pain and hurt we have caused to the Jewish community in recent years." "Anti-Zionist anti-Semitism...denies the Jewish people alone a right to self-determination. It equates Zionism with racism, focuses obsessively on the world's sole Jewish state, and holds it to standards to which no other country is subjected." "We will be clear-sighted about the nature and ambition of the likes of Hamas and Hizbullah, whose use of violence and terrorism destroys the prospect of peace. And let me be clear, too, the Labour party does not and will not support BDS. Its principles are wrong - targeting alone the world's sole Jewish state."
