The British Labour party suspended yet another member, a local Jewish newspaper revealed Wednesday - this time, after she claimed the Jews caused an "African Holocaust."
Jacqueline Walker, a member of the Movement organization which supports Hamas-supporting Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, made the comments in a February Facebook post, the Jewish Chronicle reports.
“As I’m sure you know, millions more Africans were killed in the African holocaust and their oppression continues today on a global scale in a way it doesn’t for Jews," Walker wrote.
“Many Jews (my ancestors too) were the chief financiers of the sugar and slave trade which is of course why there were so many early synagogues in the Caribbean. So who are victims and what does it mean? We are victims and perpetrators to some extent through choice."
Walker then made a series of comments this week defending the anti-Semitic acts running rampant in the Labour party, including defending former London mayor Ken Livingstone's comments claiming Adolf Hitler was a "Zionist" and claiming the dozens of anti-Semitic incidents in the party do not equate a problem with anti-Semitism in Labour.
“Like everywhere in British society the Labour Party fails, and fails too often, to be what we would want it to be - a bastion of socialism and internationalism,” she wrote.
“The chief victims of those failures however are not people of Jewish descent, but are the many other representatives of other minorities underrepresented in the structures of the LP and discriminated against inside and outside the LP economically, culturally and politically in contemporary Britain.”
Labour announced Wednesday Walker has been suspended, pending an investigation.
More than 50 British Labour party members have been suspended in the past two months over comments deemed racist or anti-Semitic, according to The Daily Telegraph.
Corbyn himself has been criticized in the past for referring to Lebanese Shiite terror group Hezbollah as "friends" and urging dialogue with Palestinian Islamist terror group Hamas, as well as meeting representatives of both organizations.
