The Labour Party has restored MP Kate Osamor's membership privileges after reviewing her statements regarding Gaza made on Holocaust Memorial Day.

The MP from Edmonton was removed from her party in Parliament in January following the controversy over a message she sent on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day, which commemorates the genocide of six million Jews during World War II.

Ms. Osamor addressed her party members, emphasizing the importance of observing Holocaust Memorial Day while also advocating for the recognition of other genocides, including the conflict in Gaza.

A spokesperson for the Labour Party announced: "Today, the Chief Whip has reinstated Kate Osamor MP to the Labour whip.

"The Labour Party has concluded an extensive inquiry into grievances regarding a social media post she published in January."

Ms. Osamor, who served as the shadow development secretary during Jeremy Corbyn's tenure, expressed her appreciation to the Labour Party for conducting a review of her behavior, stating that she fully accepts the results of their investigation.

She continued, "I offer my wholehearted apologies once more for my statements. I expressed thoughts that were thoughtless and unsuitable, for which I am sorry and deeply regretful."

"I will keep engaging with Jewish leaders and community members. I am dedicated to meeting the highest expectations."

"I am eager to keep serving the people of Edmonton in Westminster as their Labour representative."

Ms. Osamor expressed regret for her remarks at the time; however, the Board of Deputies of British Jews dismissed her apology as "completely insincere," stating that the "systematic extermination of six million Jews cannot be equated in any manner to Israel's actions to eliminate Hamas from Gaza."

In reaction to her reinstatement, the organization expressed concern, stating, "There will likely be hesitancy within the Jewish community to embrace the decision to readmit Kate Osamor into Labour unless there are clear indications that her apology is genuine."

"If Ms. Osamor truly regrets her actions, she should collaborate with established Jewish organizations and important Holocaust charities to grasp the depth of the offense her words caused to many in our community."

The Jewish Labour Movement expressed a similar view, stating that her initial actions and failure to offer a genuine apology were appalling and tarnished the legacy of everyone who perished in the Holocaust and later genocides.

They also mentioned, "As far as we know, she has indeed been issued a formal written warning by the Labour Party.

"The responsibility lies with her to actively connect with both her local Jewish community in Enfield and the broader community in a meaningful way. Considering her past actions and statements, this will necessitate a genuine and forthright effort. Until she does so, her true commitment remains in question."

The announcement arrives during the uproar caused by ex-Conservative MP Natalie Elphicke's switch to the Labour Party, a move that has led to accusations against Sir Keir Starmer of shifting towards more conservative policies.

For further reading: Conservative MP Natalie Elphicke switches allegiance to Labour Party. Diane Abbott has her Labour Party membership privileges revoked following comments deemed antisemitic and hateful.

In a recent move, the party reinstated privileges to Andy McDonald, the MP for Middlesbrough, following his suspension in October. He had been suspended for using the phrase "between the river and the sea" during a speech at a pro-Palestinian rally last month.

Mr. McDonald stated that he did not intend to use language that would cause distress, and he deeply regretted any pain and hurt that resulted.

Ex-Labour Party members Diane Abbott and Jeremy Corbyn continue to face suspension due to remarks associated with antisemitism.

The progressive activist organization Momentum expressed satisfaction that Ms. Osamor's issue was addressed "quickly." However, they pointed out that this situation only underscores the "appalling" way the Labour Leadership has treated Diane Abbott, who has been suspended from the Parliamentary Labour Party for more than a year.
