NEW: Shadow minister apologises over 'antisemitic conspiracy'
- @UKLabour's shadow immigration minister Afzal Khan has said he is "sincerely sorry" after sharing what he described as "an antisemitic conspiracy" on social media.
The post in question features a video of the US comedian Jon Stewart talking about the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and was posted when Mr Khan (@Afzal4Gorton) was a @UKLabour MEP in 2015.
Underneath the video the text prominently refers to an "Israel-British-Swiss-Rothschilds crime syndicate" and "mass murdering Rothschilds Israeli mafia criminal liars".
The post has been deleted but has been archived:
Mr Khan also shared a video allegedly sourced from a Far Right website - again the post has been deleted by Mr Khan, but has been archived and a link is below.
The Facebook evidence was provided to the @BBC by voluntary group @LabourAgainstAS.
They also provided evidence of Gorton MP Afzal Khan recently ‘liking’ another Facebook post claiming @jeremycorbyn was "the target of a relentless smear campaign, orchestrated by the wealthy establishment".
LAAS spokesman, @EuanPhilipps, called for Mr Khan to be removed from the party:
“Afzal Khan, Labour MP for Gorton, has a track record of seemingly promoting and endorsing anti-Jewish views. It is a pattern of behaviour that must lead to his expulsion from the Labour Party.”
“On Monday, Jeremy Corbyn proposed changes to Labour's complaints system to speed up the expulsion of members over antisemitism.”
“It is now time for those changes to be put into action, for Mr Corbyn to demonstrate his commitment to tackling antisemitism, and for Mr Khan to be quickly removed from the Labour Party.”
