London - The anti-Semitism dispute bedeviling Britain’s Labour Party ahead of an election Thursday has continued with the suspension of a city councilor.

The party said Monday that Nottingham City councilor Ilyas Azis has been suspended pending an investigation.

The move follows the suspension last week of two other Labour figures, including former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, who was on the party’s executive council.

Aziz had suggested on Facebook that it might have been wiser to create Israel in America and that Israel could be relocated “even now.”

What's new? The only way for Jews to defeat anti semitism is by showing Jewish pride and backbone, through Torah and Mitzvos. Not by apologizing for existing and cowtowing to our enemies.

It is true that Israel is almost like a part of the USA.

It is a fact that Israel can not do ANYTHING without the permission of America.

It is a fact that Israel is one of the biggest Schnorrer's(beggars) from America.

It is a fact that America is the only true supporter of Israel.

However, i do believe that the city councilor said it becuase of Anti-semitism.
