Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby speaks out against antisemitism and Islamophobia at a vigil in London featuring bereaved Israelis and Palestinians and calling for unity against hate.

Welby tells the crowd it is time to “clean away antisemitism and Islamophobia,” both of which have been on the rise in Britain since the war sparked by Hamas’s unprecedented attack.

“We will not let antisemitism, Islamophobia have a role in our streets, our schools, our towns,” Welby adds.

Imam Monawar Hussain says “we stand united against all those who seek to sow hatred and division.”
