Labour Member Suspended for Saying Jews Control Country as Anti-Semitism Purge Continues

The British Labour Party suspended yet another member for anti-Semitic comments after he posted an article claiming that “Jews control Britain and are committing genocide on us.”

Musabbir Ali, a former campaign officer from East London, was suspended Thursday, London’s Jewish Chronicle . He is one of approximately 20 members to be suspended in recent months.

On Tuesday, Ali posted on Twitter a link to a blog post titled “Timeline of the Jewish Genocide of the British People.” The blog claims that Jews “financed Oliver Cromwell’s overthrowing and beheading of Stuart King Charles I after he refused them control of England’s finances” and accuses such British leaders as Neville Chamberlain, Winston Churchill and Tony Blair of being “jewish puppets.”

Chamberlain is best known for negotiating the Munich Pact with Adolf Hitler in 1938 following the Nazi leader’s annexation of the Sudetenland. The move is widely regarded as an act of appeasement.

In addition to disseminating the anti-Semitic blog post, Ali has claimed on Twitter that Israel was behind the ISIS bombings in Ankara, Turkey, in October, the Jewish Chronicle reported.
