Green councillor Maroof Raouf said there were “double standards” after councillors held a rally in support of Ukraine and passed a motion condemning Russia’s invasion.
He said some councillors were more eager to support Ukrainian children because of their “blue eyes and blonde hair” as opposed to those in Yemen and Syria.
Coun Raouf, who represents Nether Edge and Sharrow, sent an email to all 84 councillors.
He said: “It is terribly sad and upsetting to see the events currently taking place in Ukraine, no child needs to see the horrors of war. I pray for an end to the conflict, today rather than tomorrow.
“However, I do find some members’ double standards in supporting the people of Ukraine, but not others suffering from the effects of war, disrespectful.
Yemen, Syria and Palestine conflicts ignored
Coun Raouf was critical of the rally where councillors of all parties held Ukrainian flags.
His email adds: “What is happening in Yemen is far worse than what is taking place in Ukraine, yet I don’t see you wanting to hold the flag for Yemen.
“I don’t see you wanting to pose with the flag of Syria, especially when Russia is involved in that conflict too.
“What is happening in Palestine is far worse than what is taking place in Ukraine, yet I don’t see you crying tears for Palestine.
“I appreciate the children of Yemen, Syria or Palestine, to name but a few, may not have the blue eyes and blonde hair that members are so eager to support, however they deserve your thoughts, prayers and flags too.
“I suggest you educate yourself on the horrors committed on those who do not look like you, your constituents will respect you more for it. All humans are equal, not some more equal than others. Your hypocrisy stinks.”
Coun Raouf was unavailable for comment.
