So to clarify: Labour is screwed because 2 of their members were misquoted as saying "Hitler was misunderstood and the Jews deserved it" .
That's a misquote. What they actually said didn't need misquoting to stir up a storm.

Quote:
Let’s remember when Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism – this before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews.
Historically inaccurate/badly phrased/bloody stupid - you choose.

Quote:
I think blurring these two things undermines the importance of antisemitism because a real antisemite doesn’t just hate the Jews in Israel, they hate their Jewish neighbours in Golders Green or Stoke Newington, it’s a physical loathing
Could be taken an implying that it's ok to hate the Jews in Israel, so long as it's only them. Anti-Semitic/Racist/bloody stupid- you choose

Quote:
"Solution for Israel-Palestine Conflict - Relocate Israel into United States... problem solved".
Anti-Semitic/Racists/bloody stupid - you choose.

Politicians have to be very careful what they say. Neither have in this case. Sure Shah wasn't an MP at the time, but she was in politics.
