UK: Jewish MP in Britain says he’s received multiple death threats

A member of Britain's Parliament said he has received death threats because he is Jewish. Lee Scott, the Conservative lawmaker of the Ilford North constituency, said he has received five death threats in the past year.

On Tuesday, during a debate on anti-Semitism in Parliament, Scott detailed some of the abuse, including an incident in which a caller told him he should be “stoned to death.” The lawmaker said that he first received a threat after the last election in 2010, when two people called him a “dirty pig” and threatened to kill him.
