London ordered the removal on Wednesday of adverts stating "Israel is a racist endeavour," which were featured at bus stops around London, although it is not clear who erected them. Police have opened an investigation following the posters' appearances in at least four locations, including stops in Westminster, Waterloo and Bloomsbury.

Created by ethnic cleansing; maintained by ethnic exclusion. Israel is a #racistendeavour

 

The posters appeared a day after the U.K. Labour Party adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's definition in an attempt to defuse a row deepening rifts on its leader, Jeremy Corbyn. 

A section of the definition states that "denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor."

A spokesperson for London mayor Sadiq Khan said: "These offensive adverts are not authorized and are acts of vandalism which Transport for London and its advertising partner takes extremely seriously. They have instructed their contractors to remove any posters found on their network immediately."
