Et byrådsmedlem fra Labour har tråkket i Twitter-baret. 20 år gamle Aysegul Gurbuz ble umiddelbart suspendert etter antisemittiske meldinger. Selv bedyrer hun sin uskyld og sier at hun tror kanskje det er søsteren hennes som har lagt dem ut. Meldingene er flere år gamle, hyllesten til Hitler er fra 2011. Men noen «plagsomme» mennesker bestemte seg altså for å grave litt i palestinaforkjemperens Twitterkonto. Hun var riktignok en god del yngre da det begynte, men det er ingenting som tyder på at hun har forandret mening i og med at dette har pågått i flere år.

The 20-year-old student is alleged to have called Adolf Hitler the ‘greatest man in history’ and said she hoped Iran would use a nuclear weapon to ‘wipe Israel off the map’. Miss Gurbuz, who is Muslim, became Luton’s youngest councillor when she was elected to the High Town ward last year. But last night Miss Gurbuz was suspended after the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism found a series of disturbing posts on her Twitter account from 2011 to 2014.

Det er mange Labour-politikere som har vist antisemittiske tendenser i det siste.

The suspension is the latest anti-Semitism probe within Labour ranks. Labour peer Baroness Royall is already leading an inquiry after Oxford University Labour Club’s co-chairman resigned, claiming a ‘large proportion’ of its members had ‘some kind of problem with Jews’.

In the past weeks, Labour has twice suspended the deputy chairman of its Woking branch, Vicki Byrne, for posting anti-Semitic tweets, and suspended councillor Khadim Hussain, former Lord Mayor of Bradford, for sharing a Facebook post that said: ‘Your school education system only tells you about Anne Frank and the six million Zionists that were killed by Hitler.’

I forbindelse med saken i Oxford University kom det også frem at jødiske studenter føler seg utrygge på campus.

Labour-leder Jeremy Corbyn kommer seg ikke på banen for å ta avstand fra de voksende antisemittiske holdningene i partiet sitt. Mange klager over at han ikke gjør nok.

‘Anti-Semitism is rising in Europe and the UK, and the regular anti-Semitic tweets and opinions emanating from the Labour Party have failed to elicit any meaningful response from Jeremy Corbyn. How many more cases must we see before Labour take action?’
