Antisemitism and Clement Attlee

Many of the reviews of Andrew Adonis' biography of Bevin have suggested that he and Attlee were antisemitic.  That may be true of Bevin, but I find the idea harder to swallow with Attlee.

This story sugģests that took in one of the kindertransport children, which seems an thing for an antisemite to do.  Of course during the Mandate, he may have made hostile comments, but they surely have to be seen in the context of the attacks on British soldiers in Palestine at the time.
