Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group Against Anti-Semitism in the British parliament and Labour Party member John Mann spoke at the British Limmud Conference Monday, addressing the issue of rising anti-Semitism in the UK and Europe to 3, 000 young Jews.

“Britain has 3 forms of anti-Semitism: Traditional anti-Semitism, anti-Semitism of the left and anti-Semitism from the Muslim community”, he said.

The issue of rising anti-Semitism in Britain and in Europe all together: “is a dangerous situation and very volatile, with very serious potential consequences.”

About the controversial anti-Semitic statements by a member of his party Gerald Kaufman said Mann: ” Kaufman is a disgrace to parliament, a disgrace to the Labour Party and it’s a disgrace he is called the Father of the House”

Kaufman’s statements arouse a public storm in Britain, and were also condemned by head of the Labour party, Jeremy Korbyn.
