Ex-Archbishop of Canterbury: UK Labour Leader Corbyn Gives Impression He ‘Doesn’t Like Jewish People’

In an interview on International Holocaust Memorial Day, a former archbishop of Canterbury lamented a “deplorable” rise of antisemitism in Britain in recent years.

Lord George Carey told i24 News that the matter was a particular problem in the Labour Party, which has been roiled by a number of antisemitism scandals since far-left MP Jeremy Corbyn became its leader in 2015.

“The weakness of his statements can give the impression that he is, deep down, someone who doesn’t like Jewish people,” Carey said of Corbyn. “I hope he might say that’s not the case. But I fear he’s not giving clear leadership to his own party in condemning, from within his own ranks, people who speak out against Jewish people.”

Asked about the role of the media and the Church in fostering anti-Israel sentiment, Carey noted, “Christians are to blame as well. I think of Israel as a wonderful, sophisticated, democratic society surrounded by undemocratic nations. We must support one another.”
