Labour AM suspended for antisemitic comments
Cardiff – A Labour AM criticised for making “extremely offensive” remarks about Jewish people has been suspended from her party in the assembly.
In a recording that emerged last week Jenny Rathbone suggested Jewish people’s security fears could be “in their own heads”.
Ms Rathbone, who is suspended pending a Labour probe, has apologised.
“I hope the matter can be resolved as soon as possible,” the Cardiff Central AM said.
Last week the Jewish Chronicle published a recording of Jenny Rathbone in which she also said hostile behaviour towards Jewish people was driven by the behaviour of the Israeli government.
