Naz Shah row: peers accuse Labour of failing to root out antisemitism
Labour has been accused by two Jewish peers of failing to get to grips with antisemitism within the party after the suspension of Bradford MP Naz Shah for offensive remarks on Facebook.
Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, caved to pressure and took action against Shah on Wednesday over a series of posts from 2014 in which she appeared to endorse a suggestion that Israelis be deported to the US. Shah has apologised several times.
But Michael Levy, the former fundraiser for Tony Blair, and Julia Neuberger, a cross-bench rabbi, said the comments highlighted a wider problem with antisemitism within some elements of the left.
