UK Labour Party suspends councilor over anti-Israel postings

The anti-Semitism dispute bedeviling Britain's Labour Party ahead of an election Thursday has continued with the suspension of a city councilor.

The party said Monday that Nottingham City councilor Ilyas Azis has been suspended pending an investigation.

The move follows the suspension last week of two other Labour figures, including former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, who was on the party's executive council.

Aziz had suggested on Facebook that it might have been wiser to create Israel in America and that Israel could be relocated "even now."

Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has launched an independent review of anti-Semitism and racism within its ranks.
