The British Labor Party has suspended yet another official on Friday for making what are deemed by some to be anti-Semitic comments.

According to The Jewish Chronicle, the party suspended David Watson, a fundraiser in Walthamstow, for a Facebook post in which he said Zionism was “a racist ideology.”

Watson also shared posts alleging links between Islamic State and Israel.

Thus far, the Labor Party has suspended 19 figures for social media posts with harsh anti-Israel and anti-Jewish content.
