Zarah Sultana, the newly selected Labour candidate for the constituency of Coventry South, has admitted and apologised for hate speech which she posted on-line.
Four years ago, Sultana posted on social media:
“Try and stop me when the likes of Blair, Netanyahu and Bush die”.
The Jewish Chronicle also reported that Sultana has previously called for violence by Palestinians when she corrected a post saying that instead of “non-violent resistance”, she meant “violent resistance”.
Sultana admitted the hate posts, but added:
“This was written out of frustration rather than any malice”.
The Labour Party has yet to comment on whether Sultana will be deselected.
