Ken Livingstone, the former mayor of London who was suspended from the Labor Party on Thursday for claiming that Nazi ruler Adolf Hitler was a Zionist, refused to back down “for telling the truth.”

The former MP on Friday called on his party and its leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to reverse course and reinstate him despite the firestorm of controversy ignited by his remarks.

Livingstone said that his suspension was the result of a “well-orchestrated campaign” cooked up by the “Israel lobby.”

His remarks were reported by the British newspaper Telegraph.
