UK Labor Party suspends MP Naz Shah for anti-Israel Facebook posts

UK Labor Party MP Naz Shah was suspended from the party on Wednesday after inflammatory comments she made about Israel prior to becoming an MP were publicized on Tuesday, the BBC reported.
The suspension for Facebook posts she wrote, which included a call to "relocate Israel to America," came after British Prime Minister David Cameron called for her removal and Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn called her comments "offensive and unacceptable."
"Jeremy Corbyn and Naz Shah have mutually agreed that she is administratively suspended from the Labour Party by the general secretary," a Labor Party statement carried by the BBC read. "Pending investigation, she is unable to take part in any party activity and the whip is removed," the statement added.
