Confusion surrounds the status of a former Labour councillor who appeared to link Israel to the 9/11 attacks and Islamic State after it was reported she had been readmitted to the party – only to be denied by Jeremy Corbyn’s office.
Beinazir Lasharie was alleged last year to have posted video on Facebook entitled: “ISIS: Israeli Secret Intelligence service”.
She was reported to have written: “Many people know about who was behind 9/11 and also who is behind ISIS. I’ve nothing against Jews..just sharing it.” And later she took to the social network to add: “I’ve heard some compelling evidence about ISIS being originated from Zionists!”
But the Guido Fawkes site quoted Kensington Labour as saying that her suspension was lifted by December following an investigation and that she was once again a “Labour councillor for Notting Dale”.
Jeremy Corbyn’s office, however, told the Jewish News last week she remains suspended -and stood by that position today.
On Twitter, she wrote at the time the original suspension “Don’t believe everything you read or see, I don’t! I’ve been misquoted, look at my full profile before judging me. Thanks #peace”.
