    The election of a Muslim as London mayor 'illustrates the need for Europe to rediscover its capacity to integrate', the Pope told La CroixPope Francis has hailed the election of London’s first Muslim mayor in a wide-ranging interview with a French newspaper. Discussing the migrant crisis with French daily La Croix, Pope Francis said “the worst form of welcome” for migrants is “to ‘ghettoise’ them”. “On the contrary, it’s necessary to integrate them,” the Pope said. “In Brussels, the terrorists were Belgians, children of migrants, but they grew up in a ghetto. In London, the new mayor (Sadiq Khan) took...

    LONDON—Donald Trump said he is unlikely to have a good relationship with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron if he becomes the next U.S. president because of Mr. Cameron’s earlier criticism of him. “It looks like we’re not going to have a very good relationship, who knows,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with ITV News, which aired Monday. Mr. Cameron’s spokesman responded that the prime minister stood by earlier comments that Mr. Trump, the likely Republican presidential nominee, was “divisive, stupid and wrong” for calling for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. He also said criticism from Sadiq...

    Former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone said, in an interview with Al-Ghad Al-Arabi TV, that when Hitler came to power in 1932, he did not want to kill the Jews. He just wanted to "deport all the Zionists to Israel," said Livingstone, who further claimed that Britain and the U.S. should have absorbed the Jewish refugees following WWII, rather than enabling the establishment of the state of Israel, which was "fundamentally wrong." Livingstone added that he never buys Israeli products and that the failure to resolve the Palestinian problem leads Muslims to join ISIS. The interview was conducted on May...

Jacqueline Walker is a vice-chair of the movement’s national steering committee and activist in south-east England. Labour suspended Ms Walker from the party after the JC brought her comments to the party’s attention. She has repeatedly claimed the ongoing allegations of Jew-hate against party members are part of a “witch-hunt” against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Describing herself as an anti-Zionist, Ms Walker responded to a critic who asked her about the Holocaust on Facebook in February by writing...

"Anti-Semitism is absolutely abhorrent and wrong,” he stated, on a BBC One interview. “Anyone that commits any act of anti-Semitism, that makes anti-Semitic remarks, is auto excluded from the party and an inquiry follows immediately." "We have suspended, we will suspend, any member that behaves in that way," he added. Corbyn's statement surfaces after weeks of unfettered hatred from Labour party members toward Jews.

It's not a decision that has attracted much attention in the United States. The Obama administration has weighed in, urging Britons to vote to remain. That's the same approach taken by every American administration for 60 years. The default assumption is that we have done pretty well over the last 240 years with a Union of...

If you thought Bernie was a crazy radical, then you haven't met Larry, who moved on to the UK where he runs for parliament as a member of the Green Party. The Green Party is about as terrible as a political party can possibly get. Its only virtue is that unlike its German counterpart, it didn't come out for legalizing pedophilia. (It left that to Labourites like Harriet Harman.)

From Corbyn's own connections to Holocaust-deniers and anti-Semitic preachers, to the recent decisions to readmit left-wing extremists previously expelled from the party over anti-Semitism, and the high-profile allegations of rampant anti-Semitism among Oxford University's Labour Club (and an apparent cover up of the problem) - all of these have led the UK's Campaign Against Antisemitism to ask: Does the Labour Party have an anti-Semitism problem?

    As a public service, here is a brief guide for Americans to tomorrow's British elections. Not that you really need one. The operating principle is easy enough to understand -- like the British taste for delicacies like toad in the hole, bubble-and-squeak and spotted dick. Not to mention specialties like kippers salty enough to make the Dead Sea seem alkaline. As I said, easy to understand. Like the game of cricket, whose rules are as clear to an American as a London fog. Once the election returns are in tomorrow night, it's just a matter of coalition-building, a game that...

    Right-Wing Wins British Elections Fri May 3, 3:51 PM ET By BETH GARDINER, Associated Press Writer BURNLEY, England (AP) - The anger that once exploded into riots in this ramshackle northern English town made itself felt again this week, more quietly but with equal power. Voters put three far-right anti-immigration candidates from the British National Party on the city council, prompting outrage in the political mainstream and fear among many foreign-born residents. "A stain on the town," proclaimed the local Lancashire Evening Telegraph. "Good luck to them," said Geoffrey Haworth, a BNP supporter. David John Edwards, Carol Hughes and Terence...

    A Labour MP is urging people in Oldham to vote for any party to stop the far-right British National Party (BNP) winning a seat in the local elections. Phil Woolas wants to prevent the BNP winning any council seats at all in the forthcoming poll.The MP for Oldham East and Saddleworth told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he wanted people to vote "Conservative, Liberal Democrat or whoever" instead. Oldham was ravaged by three nights of violence between white and Asian youths last May, after the BNP campaigned in the town ahead of the general election. And in that election, BNP...

    When the Labour leadership was in the throes of one of its recent shambolic policy re-alignments – it may have been the volte face on support for the Government’s fiscal charter, or the contradictory announcements on renewing Trident – a colleague of mine said: “Is this too serious to be funny, or is it too funny to be serious?” I think we have the answer to that question now. With the announcement last week of Seumas Milne’s appointment as head of Labour strategy and communications, there can no longer be scope for doubt. This is deadly serious. To appreciate just...

    Britain and its western allies should be prepared to enforce a no-fly zone inside Syria to protect refugees even if Russia vetoes a UN resolution, the Labour co-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on Syria has said. Jo Cox, working in conjunction with the former Conservative international development secretary Andrew Mitchell, is pressing the British government to develop a new comprehensive diplomatic political and military strategy focused on protecting Syrian civilians against attacks both by Isis and Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad.

    Key members of Jeremy Corbyn’s team have actively supported “insurrection” and rioting against the police, a Telegraph investigation has found. John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, Andrew Fisher, Mr. Corbyn’s new political adviser, and John Ross, a close ally and economic expert, have all condoned or justified violence. A trawl by this newspaper of archives, reports and internet postings shows how Mr. Corbyn’s inner circle has frequently supported civil unrest and even praised violent demonstrators—including in one case a hooligan jailed for hurling a fire extinguisher at police from the top of a building. …

  • [UK] Labour’s Vegan Farming Spokesman: Treat Meat Eaters Like Smokers, Meat Like Tobacco

    Labour’s vegan farming spokesman believes meat should be treated like tobacco with a public health campaign to stop it being eaten. Kerry McCarthy MP was recently named the Labour Party’s Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Jeremy Corbyn’s appointment of a vegan farming spokesman was always going to be controversial. Not only is McCarthy’s 20 year-long vegan lifestyle choice in potential conflict with a large section of Britain’s agricultural economy, she is a Vice President of the League Against Cruel Sports which seeks to ban countryside pursuits favoured by many farming communities.

    The new leader of the British Labor party, Jeremy Corbyn, is saying that he has some Jewish ancestry, the Jewish Chronicle reports. Speaking in an interview with the Church Times, Corbyn revealed that there was a “Jewish element” in the family. […] Corbyn, who was elected Labor leader a week ago, has stirred up some controversy as he infamously called Hamas and Hezbollah as his “friends”. In the days before the vote he also received an endorsement from Hamas, with the terrorist group hailing him for his “sympathetic” stance towards them. Corbyn’s election as head of Britain’s opposition was a...

    His politics are that of principled rebellion. Between 2005 and 2010, when Labour was in government, Corbyn voted against party lines 25% of the time. Known for his anti-war politics, he has publicly supported both the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Irish republicans. In 1996 the Guardian editorialized that his ill-timed meeting with Gerry Adams of Sinn Fein made him “a fool whom the Labour Party would probably be better off without.” Now, with the party in disarray, Corbyn has come out of obscurity to become Labour’s next leader — and British Jewry is worried. In a recent Survation poll, 67%...
