‘We could say sorry for creating Israel’ suggests Labour MP as party continues to reel from Livingstone’s suspension over his remarks on Hitler

The row over anti-Semitism in Labour took a new twist last night after it emerged that one of Jeremy Corbyn’s MPs suggested a Labour Government could make a historical apology for the creation of Israel in 1948.

In comments made last year to a meeting of the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, Ealing MP Rupa Huq said that a Labour Government ‘could probably get that through’.

Ms Huq’s comments, leaked to The Mail on Sunday, have been revealed as the Party is still reeling from the suspension of former London Mayor Ken Livingstone for arguing that Hitler was a Zionist.
