UK Jewish groups call on Labour Party to suspend lawmaker

British Jewish groups and British lawmakers have called on the Labour Party to suspend a Member of Parliament who compared Israel to the Nazis.
The Labour Party said last week that Afzal Khan had been “reminded of his responsibilities as a Labour representative,” but that he would face no disciplinary action, the Jewish Chronicle reported Thursday.
Kahn tweeted in August 2014, during the war with Hamas in Gaza: “The Israeli government are acting like Nazi’s in Gaza.”
Khan in 2008 received a high national honor, the CBE, for his community and interfaith work, and is co-founder of The Muslim Jewish Forum of Greater Manchester.
