“Just like the Powell speech, it identified a group of British citizens and said, in effect, they’re not really part of us, they’re an alien element, and that is classic anti-semitism. … The fact is, anti-semitism has returned to mainland Europe, Jews have been murdered in Paris, in Toulouse, in Marseilles, simply for being Jews. When a public figure issues an utterance that has echoes of that anti-semitism, and is in effect opening the door, letting the demons out, then that becomes very very dangerous. And of course there’s a big difference between Enoch Powell and Jeremy Corbyn: there was never the slightest possibility that Enoch Powell would ever become Prime Minister, but Jeremy Corbyn is leader of Her Majesty’s opposition, and might become Prime Minister. Let me tell you vast numbers of British Jews are very disturbed and anxious about that.”
