Lawmakers demand Labour take anti-Semitism seriously

LONDON (AP) — Some 90 senior members of Britain's opposition Labour Party have urged the group's leader Jeremy Corbyn to expel a lawmaker accused of being an apologist for anti-Semitism. The demand came soon after the party lifted its suspension of Chris Williamson, a lawmaker who had been filmed telling a meeting that the party had been "too apologetic" and "given too much ground" in its response to anti-Semitism allegations. Labour has been split apart by claims that the party has become hostile to Jews under Corbyn, a longtime supporter of the Palestinians' cause.
