The British Labour Party suspended yet another member for anti-Semitic comments after he posted an article online 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 reported. 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 that helped encourage the Nazi oppression of minorities.

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

Responding to Ali’s suspension, a Jewish Labour Movement spokesperson told London’s Jewish News, “The party has acted in a swift and appropriate manner. We await the results of the investigation with interest. There must be zero tolerance for the promotion of race hate by social media in the Labour Party.”
