The local Labour group has suspended Ansar Hussain while the allegations are investigated.
Ansar Hussain was elected to represent Wolverton ward in 2021. Previously, he served as Wolverton’s mayor. He was apparently due to be the new deputy mayor of Milton Keynes.
We worked with The Jewish Chronicle to expose his hateful posts and ‘groundless claims and conspiracy theories about Israel’, which the JC shared with the Labour Party, including this highly antisemitic post which Cllr Hussain appears to have sourced from the Islamic extremists website “Mission Islam”.
In addition, Ansar believes in the antisemitic conspiracy theory that Israel somehow controls the terrorist organisation ISIS in some manner. Someone who believes this bunkum should be nowhere near a political party, let alone an elected representative and potential Mayor.
Ansar also appears to happily misuse Holocaust imagery to advance a cause. Co-opting such imagery trivializes and degrades the memory of the murdered millions Jews and belittle their sufferings.
