Labour has suspended a councillor over social media posts, including a suggestion Israel should be relocated to the United States.
Nottingham City councillor Ilyas Aziz was suspended on Monday pending an investigation in the latest row over alleged anti-Semitic comments to hit the party.
Among Facebook posts appearing on Mr Aziz's account was one highlighted on the Guido Fawkes website.
It read: "Jews and Muslims lived together in the Middle East, in peace pre 1948. Perhaps it would have been wiser to create Israel in America it's big enough. They could relocate even now".
The move comes after Jeremy Corbyn on Sunday insisted the party is "united" in opposing anti-Semitism.
His comments came in the wake of a turbulent week which saw both MP Naz Shah and former London mayor Ken Livingstone suspended.
A Labour spokeswoman said: "Ilyas Aziz has been suspended from the Labour Party pending an investigation."
