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Mr Ward has had the whip withdrawn until 13th September.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?"
