British-Nigerian Minister Osamor Suspended Over Controversial Remarks on Israel’s Actions

 

In a move that has stirred significant controversy, MP , a British-Nigerian minister representing Edmonton, has been suspended from office for her critical stance on Israel’s ongoing bombardment of Gaza.

 

Osamor’s suspension comes in the wake of her sharing a photograph of herself at a Holocaust Educational Trust event, commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day. However, it was her statements in her weekly newsletter that sparked outrage, where she suggested adding Gaza to the list of ‘recent genocides.

In her newsletter, Osamor stated, “Tomorrow is Holocaust Memorial Day, an international day to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust… and more recent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and now Gaza.”

The aftermath of her comments saw swift condemnation, prompting Osamor to issue a tweet apologizing “for any offence caused by my reference to the ongoing humanitarian disaster in Gaza as part of that period of remembrance.

Critics, including the Holocaust Educational Trust, labeled Osamor’s remarks as a “painful insult to survivors of the Holocaust.” The Board of Deputies of British Jews went further, calling her comment “disgraceful,” while the Jewish Leadership Council accused her of exploiting Holocaust Memorial Day to attack the Jewish state.
