The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY MAR­CUS DYSCH

LABOUR POLITI­CIAN Stella Creasy has posted im­ages on Twit­ter of an an­ti­semitic, Holo­caust-deny­ing Christ­mas card she was sent in the post.

The card, re­ceived by the MP for Waltham­stow last week, ap­peared to show a draw­ing of two peo­ple, with one ask­ing the other: “Do you still be­lieve in Fa­ther Christ­mas?”

The sec­ond per­son replies: “Do you still be­lieve in Holo­caust?”

The mes­sage in­side in­cluded a hand­writ­ten note in bro­ken English stat­ing: “No Jew can be Prime Min­is­ter of Eng­land, no MP can be a Jew” and re­fer­ring to a Jewish vote-rig­ging con­spir­acy.

Af­ter Ms Creasy, who is not Jewish, posted her tweet, a num­ber of users of the so­cial me­dia site said that they had alerted the Com­mu­nity Se­cu­rity Trust.

Ear­lier this month, Ms Creasy was tar­geted for abuse af­ter vot­ing for airstrikes against Daesh in Syria.
