UK suspends British-Nigerian minister for calling Israel’s actions ‘genocide’

 A British-Nigerian minister, MP Kate Osamor has been
suspended after she accused Israel of genocide on the eve of Holocaust Memorial
Day.

 

Osamor, a British-Nigerian-born MP for Edmonton, sparked
resentment after claiming in her weekly newsletter that Gaza should be added to
the list of ‘recent genocides’.

 

In a post on X handle, Osamor posted a photo of herself
signing the Holocaust Education Trust’s commemoration book in Westminster.

 

“Tomorrow is Holocaust Memorial Day, an international day to
remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, the millions of
other people murdered under Nazi persecution of other groups and more recent
genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and now Gaza,” she wrote.

 

However, the Board of Deputies, the Jewish Labour Movement,
and the Holocaust Educational Trust reacted to her controversial remarks.

 

Meanwhile, a Labour source told MailOnline on Sunday that
the Chief Whip has suspended Osamor from the Parliamentary Labour Party pending
an investigation.
