Just days after the UK Labour Party suspended one of its members who claimed Israel had created ISIS and was responsible for the attacks in Brussels, a former mayor quit the party over an investigation into allegations of anti-Semitism.
Khadim Hussain, who had previously served as the Mayor of Bradford, was suspended by the Labour Party on March 23rd, pending the outcome of an investigation into a series of Facebook posts.
On Friday Hussain quit the party, calling the investigation unfair and groundless.
"I wrote to the Labour March on 24 March, outlining my position in response to the unfounded allegations of anti-Semitism,” Hussain wrote on Facebook.
“I am both disappointed and saddened that I did not receive any response, or indeed any form of contact, from the Labour Party, despite my repeated attempts."
Hussain has said that he is now planning to run in local elections this May as an independent.
The offending posts including claims that Israel is arming the ISIS terror organization, and complaints against Holocaust education, referring to the victims as “Zionists”.
Mainstream education, Hussain complained, “only tells you about Anne Frank and the six million Zionists that were killed by Hitler.”
