Naz Shah, a British member of Parliament representing a city with one of the country’s largest Muslim populations was heckled with cries of “Jew, Jew, Jew” when she said during a political debate on Thursday that Israel had a right to exist.
The incident in Bradford was captured on video:

Nationwide parliamentary elections will be held on Thursday.
Shah was suspended from the Labour Party last spring after she posted an anti-Semitic Facebook image. She was later reinstated after promising to learn from her mistakes and apologizing several times, which was largely accepted by the British Jewish community.
Bradford remains a hotbed of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionist politics. The city was once represented by George Galloway, who rallied locals during Israel’s 2014 war with the terror group Hamas to declare the city an “Israel free zone.”
