Press TV- A member of Britain’s Labour Party has reportedly invited an investigation after an Internet post declaring that the Takfiri terrorist group of Daesh is controlled by Israel.
Writing on his Facebook page, Labour activist Bob Campbell has suggested that Tel Aviv had the terror group attack the countries, which had thrown various forms of support behind Palestinians, namely France, Japan, Indonesia, and Belgium.
“How many more attacks have to take place before the world fully understands that ISIS is run by Israel?” he finally asked, referring to the Takfiri group by another acronym.
Labour lawmaker Tom Blenkinsop, who represents Middlesborough, where Campbell lives, has reportedly ordered an investigation into the comments and suspended the activist pending the probe.
In remarks to The Independent, however, Campbell, himself, has denied being suspended from the party.
After writing the status on Facebook, he created another post saying Daesh has not attacked Israel "because the dog doesn’t bite its own tail." Previously, he had also posted pictures comparing the Holocaust to the situation in the Tel Aviv-blockaded Gaza Strip, captioned "Holocaust the sequel…Please stop Israel," and posted pictures depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu being hung from a tree and an Israeli flag adapted with an image of a rat featuring the words, "The real plague."
Campbell, however, has also distanced himself from anti-Semitism and qualified the posts as “anti-Zionist” rather than anti-Semitic. “I post lots of pro-Jewish posts but I [also] post anti-Zionist posts.”
Members of party have in the past enraged Israel by making various anti-Tel Aviv remarks.
