JNS.org – An Islamic activist who said London’s Grenfell Tower fire victims were “murdered” by Zionists is now under investigation by police in the UK.

Nazam Ali, director of the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC), is accused of exploiting the June 14 fire, in which more than 80 people were killed, at an anti-Israel Al-Quds Day rally just days after the blaze.

“We received an allegation of anti-Semitic comments and it is being investigated by detectives from Westminster…The inquiry continues,” a spokesman for London’s Metropolitan Police Service said, the Telegraph reported.

In a video of the June 18 protest, Ali was recorded as saying, “As we know in Grenfell, many innocents were murdered by [Prime Minister] Theresa May’s cronies, many of which are supporters of Zionist ideology.”

The IHRC also reportedly encouraged its supporters to bring Hezbollah flags to show support for the Lebanese terror group.

The Community Security Trust (CST), a British watchdog organization that monitors antisemitism, said it was appalled by Ali’s “grotesque” comments linking Zionism with the Grenfell fire. “In any circumstance, these comments would have been utterly hateful, but to hang them on what happened at Grenfell Tower beggared belief,” CST stated.

In a response to the investigation, Ali told the Telegraph his comments were taken out of context.

“To say that some of Theresa May or the Tory party’s supporters are Zionists is hardly controversial,” he said.
