Former London Mayor says he may have Jewish roots following anti-Semitism row

Controversial former mayor of London Ron Livingstone told the London based Jewish Chronicle on Saturday that he may have Jewish roots stemming from his mother’s side.

Livingstone made the claim after giving testimony during a UK Labour party inquiry earlier this week into allegations that he used anti-Semitic language after claiming Adolf Hitler supported Zionism.

On April 28, Livingstone gave a radio interview with the BBC and commented: “Let’s remember when Hitler won his election in 1932 his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism.”
