Graham Jones MP accuses Israel of "deliberately killing children"

Graham Jones MP, a Labor Party member who serves Haslingden & Hyndburn, Tweeted the following on July 14th.
According to the Jewish News, Jones Tweeted the accusations during an exchange with Jewish News editor Justin Cohen.  Jones subsequently deleted the Tweet as you can see by his timeline (and per a site which keeps track of deleted Tweets by MPs) and apologized to Cohen. According to Breitbart London, additional Tweets by Jones – which he also deleted – directly accused Cohen, who is Jewish, of ‘killing children’, despite the fact that he is not Israeli.
Beyond Jones’ vicious smear of Israel, “holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel” (per Jones’ Tweet to the Jewish journalist) is defined as antisemitic according to the EUMC Working Definition.
