In Britain, Anti-Semitism Has Become Normal Again

Earlier this week, the general secretary of the British Labor party, Jennie Formby, told her fellow party members that it is “impossible to eradicate anti-Semitism and it would be dishonest to claim to be able to do so.” Perhaps so, writes Stephen Daisley, but “that doesn’t mean you don’t try.” Formby’s point, however, was to give herself an excuse for being less zealous in tackling her party’s infection by anti-Semitism, starting with Jeremy Corbyn, the fanatical Israel hater at its head.
