Labour peer’s call for Muslims and Jews to work together

    Labour peer Lord Greville Janner QC has urged Jewish people to join with Muslims in Leeds to combat anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. At a talk in Moortown he told 200 people the Jewish community could not cope without non-Jewish allies and joining forces with the Muslim community was crucial. “If we work together we will live together and if we don’t live together we will die together,” he said. Lord Janner, who is the founder and president of the Inter-Parliamentary Council against Anti-Semitism, said that together with Prince Hassan bin Talal of Jordan he recently founded the Coexistence Trust bringing together Muslim and Jewish political leaders. “The organisation provides a unique bridge across the world of politics and since forming its membership has spread to leaders in almost 40 nations,” he explained.
