Labour Palestinian group apologises for 'final solution' posts

Labour Friends of Palestine and the Middle East (LFPME) said it was sorry for an “extremely poor choice of words”.

    A pro-Palestinian Labour group has apologised after it posted a message on social media referring to a “final solution”.

    Labour Friends of Palestine and the Middle East (LFPME) said it was sorry for an “extremely poor choice of words”.

    The group published posts on Facebook and Twitter on Monday about Labour’s support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    The caption, posted together with a picture of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem behind barbed wire, read: “The Labour party’s two state solution will END the occupation – our solution will be the final solution. #FreePalestine #EndtheSeige [sic]”.

    The Nazis used the euphemism “the final solution of the Jewish question” as a reference to their attempts to annihilate the Jewish people.

    The posts have been removed from the LFPME social media accounts, with a message on the organisation’s Facebook wall admitting “a post published earlier on this page [which] contained an extremely poor choice of words.

    “Due to the preperations [sic] for the Party conference, we were unable to effectively check every piece of content being published on our page.

    “While the use of the phrase in this context was a genuine error, we would like to sincerely apologise for the hurt it has caused and will endevour [sic] to ensure such errors do not occur again in the future.”
