Growing anti-Semitism

Guido Fawkes highlights a fringe meeting at Labour's Brighton conference which would be difficult to distinguish from a gathering of a Hamas chapter in England. Granted that Guido more than most on-line journos exaggerates, generalises from the individual and takes quotations out of context, there are indisputably too many instances of an anti-Jewish trend within Labour.

The number of people in the UK who identify as Jewish seems to be holding steady, but it is around a tenth of that of British Muslim, which is growing. Is there a cynical electoral motive for the Labour leadership not to stamp on this trend in the party? Does "for the many, not the few" imply scapegoating minorities?
