Amina Ahmed, an employee at the Met Police, is under investigation for apparently saying that supporting Israel should be a ‘hate crime’. The Mail has the story.
Amina Ahmed describes herself on her LinkedIn page as a “leadership program facilitator and project manager” at the Met Police, and seemingly made calls for those who support Israel to be investigated for a “hate crime”.
In an edited comment posted in her name, she wrote: “I think at this point, if anyone openly agrees with the war in Gaza, they should be called out as Islamophobic and inciting hatred against Muslims.
“That should be investigated as extremism. Whether the [counter-terrorism] world decides to act fairly and proportionately and treat IDF support as an extremist ideology, I don’t know.”
The force said it was now looking into Ahmed’s post, with a spokesperson telling MailOnline: “We are aware of this post circulating on social media and are currently reviewing it.”
It comes as a police adviser was sacked over his “apparent antisemitic views” after he was seen leading pro-Palestine chants.
Lawyer Attiq Malik was the Chairman of London Communities Forum – a “strategic advisory body” for Scotland Yard which helps to “shape police policy and procedure at a strategic level”.
Mr. Malik was filmed in 2021 orchestrating the chant ‘From the river to the sea’ – described by Suella Braverman as “a staple of antisemitic discourse”. The slogan is widely interpreted as calling for the destruction of Israel.
The Met said it will be “immediately ceasing” its relationship with Mr. Malik while the force investigates the footage.
