Kirby: suggested Israel now takes lessons from Hitler
LABOUR ditched one of its parliamentary candidates yesterday after she branded Israel “evil” and suggested the Islamist terrorist group Isis should attack the country.
Vicki Kirby, Labour’s candidate in Woking, posted anti-Israeli comments on her Twitter feed, claiming Hitler might be the “Zionist God”.
The party severely reprimanded two other candidates after one posted sexist and homophobic comments on a Twitter account and the other compared the Tories to Nazis.
One post on Kirby’s Twitter account read: “We invented Israel when saving them from Hitler, who now seems to be their teacher.” Another read: “I will never forget and I will make sure my kids teach their children how evil Israel is!”
Kirby supports a boycott of Israeli products, but Ed Miliband, the Labour party leader, said in June: “The threat of boycotts of Israel is the wrong response. We do and we will resolutely oppose the isolation of Israel.”
