David Cameron wades into Naz Shah row after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says her comments were 'offensive and unacceptable'

The Prime Minister has hit out at the lack of strong action against Labour MP Naz Shah following 'offensive and unacceptable' comments she made online.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has personally warned Ms Shah over Facebook comments she made about Israel, but the PM suggested more should be done.

In a Facebook post in 2014, Ms Shah shared a graphic which showed an image of Israel's outline superimposed onto a map of the US under the headline "Solution for Israel-Palestine Conflict - Relocate Israel into United States", with the comment "problem solved".
Ms Shah's post suggested the US has "plenty of land" to accommodate Israel as a 51st state, allowing Palestinians to "get their life and their land back".
It added that Israeli people would be welcome and safe in the US while the "transportation cost" would be less than three years' worth of Washington's support for Israeli defence spending.
Ms Shah added a note suggesting the plan might "save them some pocket money".

Mr Corbyn - who is under pressure to deal with complaints of increasing anti-Semitism in the Labour Party - said: "What Naz Shah did was offensive and unacceptable. I have spoken to her and made this clear.
