A Labour councillor who was suspended for writing that “Jews” were behind 9/11 and ISIS has been reinstated to the party. In October, Beinazir Lasharie, a Corbynista Labour councillor in Kensington, was suspended pending investigation after Guido exposed her extreme conspiracy theories. Lasharie had posted a video on Facebook titled “ISIS: Israeli Secret Intelligence Service”, and commented:
“Many people know about who was behind 9/11 and also who is behind ISIS. I’ve nothing against Jews… just sharing it!”
She also wrote: “I’ve heard some compelling evidence about ISIS being originated from Zionists!”, and when Guido asked her to explain her comments, she told us:
“I don’t know what to believe any more. I’ve seen compelling evidence that links Zionists to ISIS.”
Labour swiftly suspended her and launched an investigation.
Yet today Lasharie is front and centre of the profile picture for the Kensington Labour Party Twitter feed:
Kensington Labour tell Guido that Lasharie is once again “the Labour Cllr for Notting Dale” and confirm that, following an investigation, her suspension was lifted in December. This is the most difficult story yet for the party to explain – why was she let back in after they investigated her extremist rants? Labour’s anti-Semitism problem gets a whole lot worse…
