Kim Johnson apologized in the House of Commons

British Labor MP Kim Johnson has apologized for describing Israel’s newly formed coalition government as “fascist”.

The MP for Liverpool Riverside constituency made the comment in Parliament, when she asked Prime Minister Rishi Sunak about “human rights abuses” against Palestinians.

She apologized shortly afterwards, after being ordered to do so by party leaders.

The lawmaker said she acknowledged that the use of the term “fascist” was “particularly inappropriate” given Israel’s history.
