Dave said,

He was right about that at least.
Apart from your funny foursome here, everyone knows what has been reported in all the media, that she said and meant what I posted.
That is where I got it from.

You have seen it reported by the BBC and the Guardian.
There is plenty more out there. It was reported everywhere.
You have produced nothing to support your case, because there is nothing.
(Or will you produce something now? Ha ha ha!)

She did advocate the transport of Jews with her comment on the graphic of Israel transposed to USA.
She admitted it.

The Guardian confirms that she did. (See Bobad's Guardian link.)

"Labour MP Naz Shah admits to the Guido Fawkes blog she wrote a Facebook post arguing for Israel's population to be "transported" out of the Middle East to America."   The Guardian




This is the message written beneath the image titled "Solution forIsrael-Palestine Conflict" posted by Shah:


Israelis are most loved by Americans. Americans will welcome Israelis with open arms into their homes.

America has plenty of land to accommodate Israel as its 51st states.

Israel can have a real safe Jewish state surrounded by friendly states.

America will no longer have to spend $3 billion tax payer money per year for Israel's defense.

The transportation costs will be less than 3 years of defence spending.

Palestinians will get their land and life back. Middle East will again be peaceful without foreign interference.

Oil prices will go down, inflation will go down, whole world will be happy.

Steve, you actually called me a liar for repeating what she said about her own comments.
When she said "Problem solved" about that graphic, she was clearly advocating the removal of the Jews and she admitted she did.

You are clearly incapable of recognising blatant anti-Semitism, perhaps because of your own position.

The Labour Party denounced her comments as anti-Semitic, and suspended her for them.
The Tory and Lib-Dem Parties agreed that the comments were ant-Semitic.
She herself accepted that her comments were anti-Semitic.
I was right.

BBC,
"Naz Shah: My words were anti-Semitic"
"Labour MP Naz Shah has said the comments which saw her suspended from the party were anti-Semitic.
Ms Shah apologised in April for online posts, including one suggesting Israel should be moved to the United States.
Labour has now reinstated the Bradford West MP, who in her first interview about the controversy blamed her "ignorance".
"I wasn't anti-Semitic, what I put out was anti-Semitic," Ms Shah told BBC Radio 4's World At One. "

"The MP said that when she looked back she thought "how stupid I was and how ignorant I was".
"The truth is that some of the stuff I have since looked at and understood, I didn't know at the time," she said.
Ms Shah said she now understood the connotations involved in the words she used.
"The language I used was anti-Semitic, it was offensive," she said. "What I did was I hurt people and the language that was the clear anti-Semitic language, which I didn't know at the time, was when I said, 'The Jews are rallying.'"

"Ms Shah said she had been on a learning journey in recent months and had received "amazing compassion" from the Jewish community.
"I didn't get anti-Semitism as racism," said Ms Shah. "I had never come across it. I think what I had was an ignorance.""

"United Kingdom
In the UK in recent years, the occasional use of this phrase by public figures has normally been followed by an apology.[5][6][7]
2007, Bedfordshire County counciller Rhys Goodwin, stepped down as chairman of the environment and economic development committee: "...During a debate on heavy goods vehicle traffic in the county, he wanted to argue that a particular problem in Bedfordshire is the amount of trucks on the roads connected with quarrying. But he used the unfortunate figure of speech before sheepishly rephrasing his point.'[8]
Goodwin, who was 74 at the time, said: "There was no racist intent at all. For 50 years of my life that was common parlance, with no more a derogatory connotation than the symbol on a jar of marmalade."[9]
2008, Lord Dixon Smith, Conservative frontbencher, used the phrase in a debate on the Housing and Regeneration Bill: "Of course, the nigger in the woodpile, as the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, has already pointed out, is that it still incorporates what I call the hangover of the new towns legislation." He immediately apologised to the House. His Lordship, also in his seventies, later commented to journalists that the phrase had been "in common parlance when I was younger".[10]
2009, Dick Denby, of Dick Denby Transport uttered this phrase on the BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine show (Tuesday, 1 December) during a discussion on the merits of 83 foot long HGV's. To his credit he did say that perhaps he should not have used said phrase. Jeremy Vine agreed he should not have used it and later apologised to Radio 2 listeners who might have been offended.

Ireland
In November, 2007, in relation to a debate on the Gaelic Players Association, Fine Gael Senator Paul Coughlan asked "Can the leader kick it into play and give members an update? Who is the nigger in the woodpile?". There was no call for an apology.

Australia
David Lord, an ABC News Radio presenter was forced to apologise after using the expression. On 22 February 2007, Alan Jones, another radio presenter, was heard to use the same phrase.[11] There was no call for an apology."

The expression appeared in an Agatha Christie novel and no-one objected at the time.
In current editions it has been changed.

Wiki,
"Commonly used in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, usage has declined since then, and use of the phrase by public figures has often been followed by criticism over the offensiveness of the term "nigger"."

It probably became unacceptable in US earlier than here.

Keith, you're clutching at any straw once again. You'd have thought by now that you and your fellow Tories would have learned that people don't want to hear smears and negativity any more. The approach has just managed to lose May's majority for her. Cast out your Tory planks before you worry about Labour splinters. You need to change your obsession to telling us what your own tawdry side are going to do. So far, due to a multitude of Tory balls-ups and a distinct lack of vision, your side have left the country rudderless, at the mercy of a bunch of sectarian thugs and with brexit going down the pan.

By what was said in the Commons yesterday, it appears that Mr Corbyn is more interested in making political capital than assisting in seeing through the Brexit negotiations to a satisfactory conclusion.

A bad move in the long term, a statesman would have taken the chance offered to prove himself. I also note his delivery has altered since the election to the hectoring manner that he once despised.

Hmmm, well of course it is easy to work together if one side gives in entirely which a little how that reads, ake.

But that isn't the challenge: It is to find things you agree on. So it is possible? Can ake or Teribus make a Brexit proposal - not for everything but one small corner - that they genuinely think Steve Shaw and Dave G could support? And vice versa?
