UK Muslim parliamentarian thinks Jews caused his bad driving

A Muslim Labour MP who caused an accident on the road while driving, blamed Jews for the disaster and has been suspended from the party:
The British Labor party suspended politician Lord Nazir Ahmed over allegations that he blamed a road accident that he caused on a Jewish conspiracy.

Ahmed, 55, was jailed for causing a deadly road accident while texting behind the wheel. Earlier Thursday the Times of London cited him as saying that his prison sentence was a result of pressure applied on the court by Jews “who own newspapers and television channels.”

Following publication of these remarks, a Labor spokesman said: "The Labor party deplores and does not tolerate any sort of antisemitism.

"Following reports in the Times today we are suspending Lord Ahmed pending an investigation."

The Board of Deputies of British Jews condemned Ahmed’s comments saying he had recalled the worse anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

“We are appalled by Lord Ahmed's alleged comments which recall the worst Jewish conspiracy theories. However outlandish and incredible his allegations, there will always be gullible or malicious individuals or groups that will accept what he has said and add to the growth of anti-Semitic discourse,” said Board chief executive Jon Benjamin.

“We note that Lord Ahmed has now been suspended from the Labor Party pending a full investigation. If he is found to have indeed made the reported comments, he should be expelled from the Labor Party, as such views should have no space in responsible political discourse,” he added.

Ahmed became one of the first Muslim peers in the UK after former British prime minister Tony Blair appointed him in 1998.
Sadly, he probably won't be the last. For all we know, there'll likely be more coming in during the next election in 2-3 years.
