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.
