Liberal Democrat chief whip Alistair Carmichael wrote a letter to MP David Ward saying the party had removed the whip from him after he posted a tweet about Israel that was neither "proportionate nor precise".
He went on to inform Mr Ward that the party had "decided to suspend the Liberal Democrat whip" from him.
The Liberal Democrat party have suspended the whip from MP David Ward, who has clashed with the party's leadership over comments questioning the continued existence of the state of Israel.
Mr Ward has had the whip withdrawn until 13th September.
It follows a post on Twitter in which the Bradford East MP said: "Am I wrong or are am I right? At long last the #Zionists are losing the battle - how long can the #apartheid State of #Israel last?"
