Another Labour Party member with issues

'The leader of Brent Council has apologised for sharing a Facebook post which compared Israel with Islamic State.

Labour politician Muhammed Butt shared a clip which appears to show a Palestinian girl in a skirmish with an Israeli soldier, which at the bottom claimed "Israel is a terrorist state like ISIS."

When contacted by Jewish News, Muhammed Butt, who is also the Lead for Equalities at London Councils, said: "I apologise for sharing this on social media. I do not agree with these views and as Leader of Brent Council I have championed diversity, tolerance and respect for all faith communities, and will continue to do so."'

More here at the Jewish News but not on the BBC. 

I do wonder why this Labour Party politician shared something with which he didn't share the view with.
