UK: Labour councillor suspended after praising Hitler on social media

Via The Independent:
A 20-year-old Labour councillor has been suspended from the party following allegations that she praised Hitler on social media.

Aysegul Gurbuz, who was the youngest person to be elected to Luton Borough Council in May last year, has been suspended from the party following an investigation by the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAAS).

Tweets on her profile - which has since been deleted - from between 2011 and 2014 praise Hitler as the “greatest man in history”and saying "the Jews are so powerful in the US it's disgusting".

In one post, it says: “If it wasn’t for my man Hitler these Jews would’ve wiped Palestine years ago. Sorry but it’s a fact. Not hating on Jews btw”.

Another said it is impossible to sympathise with Jewish people for the crimes committed during the Holocaust “because they’re making Palestine live through the same thing”.
