Naz Shah is a British lawmaker whose Labour Party membership was put on hold Wednesday due to her suggestion that Israel should be moved to the United States. This unique idea was apparently just one of a number of anti-Semitic posts Shah recently put on Facebook.
Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone has now also been suspended from the Labour party. According to the BBC, Livingstone defended Shah in part by saying that Hitler was “supporting Zionism” when his policy was that Jews should be moved to Israel.
Apparently, Ms. Shah was also “supporting Zionism” in her own way. Hell, anybody who wants to rid their land of Jews by shipping them somewhere else can claim to be “supporting Zionism.”
Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has denied that Labour harbors anti-Semites. Asked if there was a crisis in the party, he replied, “It’s not a crisis. There’s no crisis. Where there is any racism in the party it will be dealt with, it will be rooted out.” That’s a sentiment that would surely make that renowned Zionist-supporter himself- Adolph Hitler- proud.
Despite frequent missteps by the Tory party, it appears the loyal opposition is determined to stay just that.
Calling Monty Python.
