Former London mayor Ken Livingstone said Saturday he regretted a row over anti-Semitism that has rocked Britain's opposition Labor party, but refused to withdraw comments linking Hitler to Zionism.Livingstone was suspended from the center-left party Thursday after saying Hitler initially wanted to move Jews to Israel, and "was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews".His comments came in defense of Labor lawmaker Naz Shah, who was suspended Wednesday in the face of widespread criticism for sharing anti-Semitic posts on social media two years ago.More than 80 Jewish members or supporters of Labor wrote a letter to the Guardian newspaper Saturday, denying that anti-Semitism was rife in the party.
