A legislator on Jersey, a British crown dependency off the coast of France, will not run for reelection because of anti-Semitic threats. "My family have been very upset by recent events and I feel that it would therefore be better not to stand for re-election at the end of the year," Sen. Freddie Cohen, who is also the island's planning minister, was quoted as saying on June 7 by the London Jewish Chronicle.
