An antisemitic banner was removed from a London building on Monday, leading to praise from local politicians.

The banner — reading “Welcome to the Zionist police state” — was hung below a window of a home overlooking a Jewish cemetery in Mile End, a neighborhood in East London, according to reporter Gabriel Pogrund of The Sunday Times.

Labour MP Wes Streeting, the shadow exchequer secretary to the treasury, tweeted that the banner had been taken down by the Metropolitan Police and the local council, to whom he offered “big thanks.”

Local Councillor Kevin Brady tweeted, “Very pleased at how rapidly the team leaped into action” and praised other councillors who “swooped right in.”
