Anti-semitic Elements in London Police Believed Aiding Anti-jewish Organizations

Anti-Semitic elements among the London police may be helping fascist groups now conducting anti-Jewish activities, a Member of Parliament, who asked that his name not be used, said today. He added that the Palestine situation has given encouragement to the fascist organizations here, which have become extremely vocal in recent months.

The Marquess of Reading told a meeting of the Council of Christians and Jews yesterday that there is a growing hostility towards Jews in Britain, fostered by prewar anti-Semitic groups which have re-emerged in the past year. He also attributed the growth of anti-Semitism to the terrorism in Palestine.
