The British Labour party's "shocking" anti-Semitism does not make them "ready to govern," the former Archbishop of Canterbury stated Saturday – and demanded immediate action amidst a slew of damning incidents.
Lord Carey, who is vice president of the Council of Christians and Jews, raised the call for alarm during a speech in a New York synagogue over the weekend, the Daily Mail reports.
"We should be alarmed by this trend," Carey stated. "In a civilized country, such language and attitudes shouldn't be tolerated."
Carey further called on Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn to stop the slew of anti-Semitic language, saying that if he does not do so, the party "is not ready to govern."
Carey's statements follow an upswing in hate speech from the party.
In March, Vicki Kirby, a party organizer banned for calling Hitler “a Zionist god” and ridiculing Jews for having “big noses," was readmitted into the party.
More recently, Bob Campbell, a party activist, was criticized for suggesting that Israel was behind the ISIS terror organization.
And earlier this week, a former mayor of Bradford and Labour member, Khadim Hussain, posted comments on Facebook decrying Holocaust education and alleging that Israel had armed ISIS.
Corbyn himself is infamous for being a Hamas and Hezbollah sympathizer, calling both terror groups his “friends."
