“Antisemitism is an absolute cancer in our society and we should know when it grows, it is the signal of even worse things happening,” British Prime Minister David Cameron announced during a session at the House of Commons, the Jewish Chronicle reported on Wednesday.

Cameron was addressing the recent reports of a sharp rise in antisemitism in the opposition Labour party – including the suspension of two local councilors – and an investigation into the conduct of many members of the Oxford University Labour Club, as was reported in The Algemeiner earlier this month.

Pointing to Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, Cameron said, “I say to the leader opposite, it’s his party. He should sort it out.”

Cameron was responding to a question put to him by Conservative MP Mike Freer, who had asked whether the prime minister agreed antisemitism should be rooted out from all private and public organizations, according to the JC.

“There is sadly a growth of antisemitism in our country and we see it in terms of attacks on Jewish people and Jewish students,” Cameron said.

    Britain is getting what they deserve for closing the gates to Israel in WWII and letting the Jews burn in Hitlers Europe. Soon it will be a Muslim nation with all the good things that entails.

    Cameron is himself a Jew-hater, it’s just not as in-your-face with him as it is Corbyn and Labour in general.

    Cameron has no problem with the Iran deal but he is shocked shocked by Jews building homes, but not at all shocked – nothing to say – on the PA calling for the killing of Jews in its mosques, schools and kindergartens. He pretends the PA is a moderate peace partner for Israel. He is not shocked by the thousands maimed, abducted and murdered by jihadists in Africa and Asia every month. He has nothing to say there.

    In other words, like most people, including plenty Jews, Cameron is an anti-Semite himself.

    Praising our Lord Jesus Christ for the British PM’s faithful courage and testimony! I remember Queen Victoria, who had a similar faith!

    Antisemitism and Islam are much the same thing. They both have to be rooted out as they support each other in the common goal of destroying Jews.
