Jewish leaders call for UK's Labor Party to act on anti-Semitism 'cancer'Almost half a century ago, when he first became an active supporter of Britain's Labor Party, Rabbi Abraham Pinter said it had far less of a problem with anti-Semitism than the country as a whole.Moshe Menezira, manager of the Kosher Deli in Golders Green in north London, which has a large Jewish community, said there seemed to be a problem within Labor and that it was leading to many Jewish voters reconsidering whether to back Khan.The incidents sparked accusations from Jewish leaders that Labour leaders and those on the British political left were doing too little to combat anti-Semitism in their ranks.Opponents of Labour have previously leveled accusations of anti-Semitism against socialist Corbyn, who was elected party leader last September.Some Jewish leaders say Labour has more than a fringe problem, with anti-Zionism often used as a cover for being anti-Jewish.Rabbi Pinter, who said he was embarrassed that he used to count Livingstone as a friend, said those in Labour who denied there was an issue were part of the problem.
