Labour faces fresh anti-semitism storm after by-election wannabe’s Holocaust jibe

LABOUR was hit with a fresh anti-semitism storm last night after it emerged the party’s leading candidate for next month’s Lewisham East by-election likened the Israel-Palestine conflict to the Holocaust.

Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, odds-on favourite to be the next Labour MP for the South East London seat, claimed Palestinians were victims of a “genocide”.

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day last year she wrote on Facebook: “Today is the day when we remember all those affected by the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur – I’m adding Palestinian to the list”.

The alarming comments — unveiled by the Guido Fawkes website — risks reopening the incendiary row that has engulfed Labour over the last few weeks and cost the party crucial votes in last week’s local elections.
