OP-ED: The Fact Anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn Remains Labour Leader Shows How Rotten The Party Has Become

The following is via Antisemitsm UK:

Jeremy Corbyn has insisted in an interview that he was not involved in laying a wreath honoring the Palestinian ‘Black September’ terrorists who brutalized and massacred Jewish Olympians at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

When asked if he was involved in laying the wreath, his eye shifting rapidly, he said: “I was present at the wreath laying but I don’t think I was actually involved in it.”

However his lie was quickly undone when Sky News’ Political Correspondent, Tamara Cohen, tweeted a video of an interview in which Mr Corbyn said last year that he did lay a wreath.

Additionally, at the time, he wrote an article for The Morning Star, in which he reported: “After wreaths were laid at the graves of those who died on that day and on the graves of others killed by Mossad agents in Paris in 1991, we moved to the poignant statue in the main avenue of the coastal town of Ben Arous, which was festooned with Palestinian and Tunisian flags.” Those killed by Mossad agents in Paris in 1991 were Black September terrorists.

Mr Corbyn’s lie was compounded by a further lie. Having previously claimed that he was in Tunisia “to find peace”, The Daily Mail revealed that he was in fact at a conference where a senior official from Hamas, the genocidal antisemitic terrorist organisation, outlined the group’s strategy for violent attacks, which it called “magnificent”.

The conference also heard from Othman Jerandi, a former Tunisian foreign minister, who appeared to support the conspiracy theory that ISIS is in fact an Israeli conspiracy, saying: “ISIS and Israel are the same thing”.

Over the past few weeks, Campaign Against Antisemitism has commented on countless revelations about Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. The country has read and heard about antisemitism in private and public Labour Party meetings, blogs, tweets and Facebook comments. We have seen evidence of Mr Corbyn honouring terrorists and abusing Holocaust Memorial Day. Over the same period he has released a hypocritical and insincere apology, and several statements deflecting the blame onto others.

At this point the weight of the facts should speak loudly enough for themselves. His brazen lies about honoring the brutal antisemitic terrorists behind the Munich massacre show that he is not a decent man. Jeremy Corbyn is a liar, a defender of terrorists, and an antisemite. Under his leadership the Labour party presents an existential threat to the British Jewish community, not least because he so clearly supports those who brutalize and murder Jews. The fact that he remains the Leader of the Opposition shows how rotten the Labour Party itself has become.

Furthermore, Claudia Webbe, the Chair of the Labour Party’s Disciplinary Panel has tweeted a claim that the “combined machinery of state, political and mainstream elite” are conspiring to smear Jeremy Corbyn with “false allegations”.

As Chair of the Labour Party’s Disciplinary Panel, Ms Webbe must know that this kind of language is common in antisemitic conspiracy theories. Instead of addressing the fact that Jeremy Corbyn has been caught in multiple lies over his honouring of antisemitic Black September terrorists, she has now accused those who are appalled by Mr Corbyn’s action, presumably including the Jewish community, of being part of a sinister plot.

Ms Webbe’s intervention just shows how pervasive the rot has become within the Labour Party. This is the kind of supposedly neutral arbiter that we are asked to trust to deal with allegations of antisemitism in the Labour Party.
