Campaign Against Antisemitism previously reported that two anonymous Labour councillors in Sheffield were under investigation by the council and the Labour Party, and it appears that Cllr Abdul Khayum may be one of them.
Cllr Khayum, who is also a magistrate, is reported to have shared another post as well with the caption: “Even the real Jews are anti-Zionists.”
Sheffield Council releases a list of complaints to the standards board every year but does not name individuals.
The Director of Legal and Governance at Sheffield Council said: “All complaints received are taken seriously. We are unable to confirm details of any complaint or individuals identified in order to protect all affected parties.”
A spokesman for the Labour Party said: “The Labour Party takes all complaints of antisemitism extremely seriously and they are fully investigated in line with our rules and procedures, and any appropriate disciplinary action is taken.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism advocates for zero tolerance of antisemitism in public life. To that end we monitor all political parties and strive to ensure that any cases of concern are properly addressed.
