A whistleblower from the West Midlands town sent this broadcaster screenshots of Mr Hussain’s alleged post.
The Campaign Against Antisemitism told GB News: “This post is abhorrent, and does nothing but divide communities at a very sensitive time. The image is a clear breach of the International Definition of Antisemitism, which has been adopted by the Labour Party.
It added: “We welcome the suspension, but clearly there is a wider cultural issue within the Walsall Council Labour Group, which the Party must investigate.”

Yesterday, a Labour source told GB News that the party was aware of the screenshot, and Cllr Hussain had been administratively suspended pending an investigation.
The same source confirmed that he later lost his role as deputy leader of the Labour group.
Soon after his suspension, Mr Hussain quit Labour with immediate effect, writing in a resignation letter that the party was “not safe for anyone with Muslim beliefs.”
He slammed Keir Starmer and local MP Valerie Vaz for not supporting a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war, adding “the Muslim community is being played by the Labour Party.”

The former councillor complained about the ongoing investigation into his allegedly sectarian chanting, sparked by a GB News report, but did not mention his alleged post comparing Netanyahu with Hitler.
Mr Hussain did not respond to our request for comment.
