Aysegul Gurbuz #racist telegraph.co.uk
A Labour councillor has been suspended after a series of anti-Semitic tweets were found on her Twitter account.
Aysegul Gurbuz, 20, is the latest name drawn into a row threatening to divide the party following claims of harassment of Jewish students at Oxford University.
Gurbuz represents the High Town ward in Luton after being elected in May 2015. She also sits on a panel supervising Bedfordshire Police.
But messages on her Twitter account, now deleted, suggest strong support for Adolf Hitler who is referred to as "my man Hitler" and the “greatest man in history”.
Another tweet hoped that Iran would use a "nuclear weapon" to "wipe Israel off the map".
Other tweets expressed "disgust" that "Jews are so powerful", and one even stated "Ed Miliband is Jewish. He will never become prime minister of Britain."
One tweet said: "If it wasn't for my man Hitler these Jews would've wiped Palestine years ago. Sorry but it's a fact."
The tweet’s author added "Not hating on Jews btw".
Among the most shocking tweets was one that began: "Jews cannot expect us to sympathise with their history under Hitler."
Gurbuz was also a candidate for Warwick Student Union’s Ethnic Minorities Officer, listing in her manifesto a commitment to “Increase awareness of Holocaust Memorial Day”, as well as serving on the Executive Committee of the Warwick Friends of Palestine Society.
