Here is Mr Jeremy Corbyn, Labour MP for Islington North, at the “Meet the Resistance” event at Friends House. His friends, he says, are Hezbollah and Hamas.
You see, Hezbollah and Hamas are just working for the good:
“The idea that an organisation that is dedicated towards the good of the Palestinian people, and bringing about long term peace and social justice and political justice in the whole region, should be labelled as a terrorist organisation by the British government, is really a big, big historical mistake”
Then, with a Jewish fig leaf in place, he appears to call for the destruction of today’s Israel:
“We are opposed to Zionism and what Israel is doing towards the Palestinian people. But we are opposed to them from a point of view of unity. All our marches have involved very substantial Jewish contingents and they always will, because our argument, and I refuse to be dragged into this stuff that somehow or other because we’re pro-Palestinian, we’re antisemitic. It’s a nonsense. What we are in favour of is a Palestine where everybody can live. They can’t live if you’ve got Zionism dominating it all.”
Nonsense? How blunt must one be? How about this filth, produced in Syria and broadcast by Hezbollah’s Al Manar TV channel as part of a special Ramadan series of Jew hatred. Would that be clear enough for Mr Corbyn?
Surely Mr Corbyn would be more at home with the extremists of “RESPECT”.
It’s time for Labour to give him a firm push in that direction.
