UK Jewish lord threatens Labor resignation after rash of anti-Semitic events

A prominent Jewish member in the British House of Lords dismayed at a recent rash of anti-Semitic incidences has threatened to resign from the Labor party if it did not send “a clear and unequivocal message” opposing anti-Semitism, The Jewish Chronicle reported Monday.

Lord Michael Abraham Levy, a former music industry executive and close advisor to former UK prime minister Tony Blair, made the threat after Labor party member and former parliamentarian candidate Vicky Kirby was suspended (for the second time this week) due to tweets stating that Jews have “big noses” and “slaughter the oppressed.”
