A LIBERAL Democrat election candidate who published a series of antisemitic social media posts has been suspended by the party.
Ashuk Ahmed was dropped as the Luton South candidate on Tuesday.
The 51-year-old, who has an MBE for community work, was revealed to have posted a series of highly offensive messages including suggestions that Zionists controlled “half the world”.
He also shared an image of Benjamin Netanyahu with blood pouring out of his mouth onto the bodies of Palestinian children.
Mr Ahmed was interviewed by police in 2014 about the posts, but not charged.
