A Black Lives Matter group has been accused of anti-Semitism after posting a controversial mural as a cover photo for a Facebook event.
The mural, Freedom of Humanity, was removed from East London in 2012 after concerns from Jewish groups that it contained vile anti-Semitic tropes such as the idea that Jewish people controlled the world.
The street artist, Mear One, has previously denied being anti-Semitic, and said the mural is instead about class and privilege.
The image was posted online by Black Lives Matter Oxford, who are independent of but support Black Lives Matter, as a cover photo on Facebook for an event called Freedom Summer BLM, as reported by Cherwell.
The mural previously caused controversy for Jeremy Corbyn after he questioned why the image was being removed from East London in a Facebook post.
The former Labour leader had written Why? You are in good company ahead of its removal in 2012, but later admitted the image is deeply disturbing.
The post by Black Lives Matter Oxford was spotted by Liberal Democrat councillor Alexadrine Kantor, who responded on Twitter. She said: The Oxford #BlackLivesMatter seems to think antisemitism is a [sic] acceptable way to fight racism. How disappointing. You dont fight racism with racism.
The group has now taken down the picture from the event and tweeted an apology.

History may not repeat itself but it sure rhymes. 2020 is sure rhyming with 1933.
BLM must be exposed as the Marxist organization that it is. Call them out! Call your Congress critters, raise hell!!!
The rule of opposites:
“Black lives matter” means the Commies want to use blacks as fodder for their lefty revolution.
“Antifa” means vicious fascists.
“Tolerance” means obey me or I doxx you.
I would think BLM chanting kill the Jews while marching in Fairfax part of LA would have been a sufficient clue if the graffiti and broken windows on synagogues was insufficient.
On my Facebok page and other places I now call Antifa “The Kristallnacht 2.0 Gang” . . I use it ALL the time to make the point
