7:27 am
as to what vision of germany there is for the future now the main opposition in the united kingdom has become embroiled in a row over the semitism the labor party's executive is to hold a k. meeting on the matter on tuesday but some high profile and pays for the veteran left wing party leader jeremy corbyn to resign over the issue lawrence lee reports from london. who is jeremy colby. is he as his fervent supporters believe the most moral politician in generations a man who spent his entire life campaigning for political justice for palestine or is he as equally fervent opponents allege a closet racist and anti semites who says there's a difference between criticizing israel and criticizing jews but you blurs the lines between the two. is always been a split in the labor party on israel with one wing supportive of the palestinian struggle and another wing including many jewish labor party members who actively
