An “anti-Semitic” poster from outside the Labour Party conference has been removed.
The Labour leader said he was “disgusted” that the poster had been put up outside the conference centre.
He said: “We asked the police to remove it and I’m glad they did.
“This kind of antisemitic poison has no place whatsoever in our society.”
Benjamin Netanyahu is depicted flying a plane which represents the Israeli lobby and dropping bombs of “defamation” accompanied by the speech mark anti-Semite, anti-Semite, anti-Semite.
It bore the slogan “IHRA tell the NEC how you feel” referring to the huge row about the party’s refusal to adopt the full internationally-recognised definition of anti-Semitism.
It suggests that accusations of anti-Semitism in Labour are being created by an Israeli lobby.
Actress Tracy Ann Obermann who is herself Jewish and receives a huge volume of anti-Semitic abuse from people claiming to be Labour or Jeremy Corbyn supporters called for it to be removed.
She tweeted a picture of the poster in place saying: “If someone doesn’t take this down I’m coming down to Brighton myself to rip it down. Labour you disgust me.”
Jack Lubner Co-youth and Students officer for Jewish Labour tweeted: “Horrendous to see an antisemitic cartoon outside UK Labour conference for the second year running.
“I feel sick and unwelcome, as a Jewish member, to have to walk past this racist bile on the way into conference.”
Initially Sussex Police decided to allow the poster to remain but later on they changed their stance.
