UK: Jack Straw - ‘I am not remotely anti-Semitic’

Straw’s comments at a panel hosted at the House of Commons last week were originally reported by former MK Einat Wilf, another panelist. She announced in a Facebook post and in subsequent interviews that Straw had said that AIPAC’s political clout and “unlimited” funding were prime obstructions to the peace process. She also said Straw claimed that Germany has an “obsession” with defending Israel. 
In his statement to the Post on Monday, Straw did not deny making those comments.
But he strongly pushed back against claims that his criticism was anti-Semitic. 
“I am not remotely anti-Semitic,” he said.
