A Labor Council candidate was suspended from the party last night for spreading a series of & # 39; disgusting & # 39; conspiracy theories about Israel.
Alex Braithwaite shared a post suggesting that the anti-Semitic crisis of Labor had been driven by Israel to discredit leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Last night she apologized and was suspended by Labor. But she remains a candidate for the Brighton and Hove Council because it's too late to retire. If she wins, she will sit as an independent.
Miss Braithwaite, pictured, shared messages that support Ken Livingstone and claim that the Rothschild family controlled the European Central Bank.
And she posted a cartoon suggesting that the BBC was governed by the & # 39; terrorist state & # 39; from Israel. The matter will add worries. Labor responds slowly to cases of anti-Semitism.
Labor Against Anti-Semitism spokesman Euan Philipps said: & Alex Braithwaite has posted some very offensive, anti-Semitic comments, articles, and images on her Facebook page over several years. They are really horrible and we hope that they will be investigated by the Brighton police as hate speech.
& # 39; It is inconceivable that someone who apparently cherishes such views, as these messages suggest, can be chosen for a public office role. & # 39;
He said that Miss Braithwaite was supported by Momentum – the basic movement in which he said anti-Semitism & # 39; endemic & # 39; was – and called for action by local Labor figures, including MPs Lloyd Russell-Moyle and Peter Kyle.
The queue comes as Labor waits to hear if it is facing a full probe from the Equality and Human Rights Commission as to whether it has discriminated against the Jews.
During the weekend, recordings of Mr. Corbyn (pictured with Diane Abbott) leaked in which admitted that Labor in recent years ignored cases of anti-Semitism & # 39; & # 39; had

Messages shared by Miss Braithwaite included a cartoon in which BBC and CNN cameramen filmed a crying Israeli child while ignoring body parts in Gaza. The caption on the cartoon described the media as & # 39; nothing more than an accessory for the police / terror state & # 39 ;.
She also spread Rothschild conspiracy theories and a message that said: "Is Israel & # 39; s hand behind the attacks on Jeremy Corbyn? & # 39;
Miss Braithwaite said: & # 39; As a black socialist woman, I have been opposed to all forms of racism and discrimination throughout my life.
& # 39; These are old messages that I didn't write on social media but shared before I knew these anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that I wouldn't share today. & # 39;
A PvdA spokesperson said: & # 39; The Labor Party takes all complaints about anti-Semitism extremely seriously. & # 39;
Another candidate from the Labor Council in Brighton has been suspended on sexist tweets, including a report that allegedly said: & # 39; I love group rape. & # 39;
Daniel Gray told The Sun that he & # 39; deeply and sincerely felt sorry for these unacceptable and sexist tweets & # 39 ;.
