Labour in Fresh Anti-Semitism Row After Candidate Posts on Facebook: ‘What Good Have the Jews Done?’

11 Nov 2017

Far-left Nasreen Khan, a shortlisted Labour Party candidate for a Bradford council seat, posted anti-Semitic comments on Facebook and accused teachers of “brainwashing” children into thinking “the bad guy was Hitler”.
A former activist for anti-Israel George Galloway’s Respect Party, Ms. Khan was responding to a video on Facebook in 2012 called, “The Palestine You Need to Know”.

Using the name Naz Kahn, she posted: “It’s such a shame that the history teachers in our school never taught us this but they are the first to start brainwashing us and our children into thinking the bad guy was Hitler.

“What have the Jews done good in this world??”

When questioned about the comment, she had added: “No, I’m not a Nazi, I’m an ordinary British Muslim that had an opinion and put it across. We have worse people than Hitler in this world now.”

Responding to more criticism, she had said: “Stop beating a dead horse. The Jews have reaped the rewards of playing victims. Enough is enough!!”

The Labour member is in a two-person shortlist for council elections next year in the Labour safe seat in the ward of Little Horton, Bradford.

On Friday, Ms. Khan told the Telegraph & Argus that she “apologised straight away” after recently being confronted with her comments, and said they were “inappropriate and unacceptable”.

“I have travelled a long way since then and learned so much. I profoundly regret the comments I made in 2012 and any offence they caused,” she added.

The Labour Party has seen several high-profile figures amongst its ranks making anti-Semitic or anti-Israeli comments, notably since the party was taken over by socialist Jeremy Corbyn, who praises the Palestinian terror group Hamas.

As Breitbart Jerusalem reported, the current Labour conference has been marred by claims of vile anti-Semitic content both on the conference floor and at side events.

On the second day alone an activist called for Holocaust denial to be covered by free speech guarantees as another demanded Jewish and pro-Israel groups be expelled from the party before calling Israel supporters “Nazis.”

The chair of the Jewish Labour Movement said Jeremy Corbyn should be “acutely embarrassed” by the row engulfing Labour, while the party was told to “do more to establish that it is not a racist party” by Britain’s equality watchdog.

Party members backed a move to toughen Labour’s regulations on “incidents involving racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia or otherwise racist language, sentiments, stereotypes or actions” in a conference vote on Tuesday.
