New video shows Jeremy Corbyn embracing 'blood libel' preacher who was later jailed for raising funds for Hamas as shocking report calls Labour a 'welcoming refuge' for anti-Semites and reveals SEVENTY whistleblowers
The now Labour leader is seen shaking hands with Sheikh Raed Salah in 2012
Salah was excluded from UK because of concerns over 'virulent anti-Semitism'
He was jailed in 2014 for two years for raising millions for terrorist group Hamas
By DAVID WILCOCK, WHITEHALL CORRESPONDENT and JACK MAIDMENT, DEPUTY POLITICAL EDITOR FOR MAILONLINE
PUBLISHED: 17:37, 5 December 2019 | UPDATED: 17:38, 5 December 2019
Jeremy Corbyn was at the centre of another anti-Semitism row today as video footage emerged of him embracing an Islamic hate preacher convicted of using the 'blood libel' against Jews. 
The now Labour leader is seen shaking hands with Sheikh Raed Salah after a 2012 talk in which he referred to him as a an 'honoured citizen' and invited him him to tea in the House of Commons.

Salah, a prominent member of the Islamic Movement in Israel, had been excluded from the UK because of concerns over his 'virulent anti-Semitism'.
In 2011, he was able to slip through border control at Heathrow and give a number of speeches before he was arrested on the orders of the then Home Secretary Theresa May.
His deportation was blocked in 2012 but the judge ruled that he had been guilty of a blood libel - a trope which claims that Jews kill children to use their blood for religious rituals. 

The Labour Party is under formal investigation by the Equality and Human Rights Commission over its handling of allegations of anti-Semitism. 

Euan Philipps, spokesman for Labour Against Antisemitism, said: 'In August 2015, Mr Corbyn claimed that he had been ''unaware'' of a British court's findings in 2012 that found Raed Salah guilty of blood libel.

'However, footage revealed today shows Jeremy Corbyn embracing Raed Salah in April 2012 – at the end of a meeting in which Mr Corbyn had been discussing the British court judgement which he later claimed to have known nothing about.

'This evidence seems to prove not only that Jeremy Corbyn had close personal links with figures responsible for virulent anti-Jewish racism, but also his apparently willingness to avoid being truthful about these links.'

The 70 current and ex-staff have given sworn statements which form part of the Jewish Labour Movement's submission to the EHRC. 

The document handed over by the JLM represents a major blow to Mr Corbyn's general election campaign as it contains numerous accusations about him as well as the Labour Party more broadly. 

It includes a claim that some prospective Jewish Labour members in one constituency were subjected to 'home visits' before they were allowed to join. 

The JLM submission argues: 'The Labour Party is no longer a safe space for Jewish people or for those who stand up against anti-Semitism. 

'That is the disturbing but inevitable conclusion from the evidence that JLM has put before the Commission over the course of the past 13 months.' 

The 53-page document claims that 'Mr Corbyn himself has repeatedly associated with, sympathised with and engaged in anti-Semitism'.

The JLM document said the 'Labour Party is no longer a safe space for Jewish people or for those who stand up against anti-Semitism'

It sets out in 11 points examples of Mr Corbyn's past behaviour which the JLM claimed had acted as 'signals to party members' that 'anti-Semitic views are acceptable'.

The JLM, which has been affiliated to Labour for decades, alleges that the party has tried to deny it has a problem and claims employees have spread 'conspiracy theories designed to discredit those who speak out against anti-Semitism.' 

It also claims that 'high profile and senior members of the Party have repeatedly defended and/or associated with those accused of anti-Semitism'. 

The JLM said this had provided 'legitimacy' for people in the lower branches of the party to 'do the same and/or deny that a problem exists'. 

Based on the evidence compiled by the JLM it concluded that Labour's internal process for the handling of complaints was 'inherently politicised'.

It alleges that staff were asked to upload details of cases to a USB drive which was then delivered to the Leader of the Opposition's office for staff there to review and make recommendations.      

The JLM submission alleges that Jewish Labour members have been 'victimised' at various levels of the party. 

For example, it cites evidence submitted by one respondent who claimed an official at a constituency Labour party had 'objected to 25 applications for membership from the ultra-orthodox Jewish community and required home visits to these prospective members' houses'. 

'This was not a requirement for other prospective members and appears to have been direct discrimination against Jewish applicants for membership,' the submission states.

Israeli foreign minister says he hopes Jeremy Corbyn does not win general election
Israel's foreign minister said today he hopes Jeremy Corbyn loses next week's general election, citing allegations of anti-Semitism buffeting the Labour Party leader.

With Israel in political disarray of its own after two inconclusive elections, the UK contest has elicited few comments from Israeli leaders despite deep concern among British Jews over Mr Corbyn and media reports that some might opt to emigrate if he wins power.

Last week, Foreign Minister Israel Katz said the Israeli government had not discussed the prospect of Mr Corbyn's election or the future of intelligence and security ties with Britain should the veteran pro-Palestinian campaigner become PM.

But pressed on the issue in an Israeli Army Radio interview today, Mr Katz was more forthcoming as the December 12 ballot approaches.

'I won't meddle in internal elections but I personally hope that he won't be elected, with this whole wave of anti-Semitism...I hope the other side wins,' he said.

Jeremy Corbyn has been caught out claiming he watches the Queen's speech on Christmas Day in the morning - when in fact the annual address is always broadcast in the afternoon.

The Labour leader has a cringe-worthy exchange with ITV's Julie Etchingham in an interview set to air tomorrow night, when the presenter asks if he sits down with his family to watch the annual 3pm address.

He firstly claims: 'It's on the morning, usually we have it on some of the time.' 

But Etchingham challenges him, pointing out the speech first airs in the afternoon, causing him to incorrectly suggest that the 3pm airing is a repeat.

Etchingham asks 'So you don't sit down as a family to watch the Queen's speech?' forcing the Labour leader to protests that his family 'doesn't watch television very much on the day'.

He then claims that he likes 'to do a bit of exercise on Christmas morning', leading to Etchingham to once again point out that the speech first airs in the afternoon. 

The interviewer finally asks 'You don't watch it do you, Mr Corbyn?' causing him to suggest there is 'lots to do' on the day, including a visit to a local homeless centre.

During the wide-ranging interview, Mr Corbyn also claims that if elected he would give up Chequers, the country house of the Prime Minister in Buckinghamshire.

He points to the fact that the UK is home to 150 billionaires, adding: 'We've still got people sleeping on the streets.'

Mr Corbyn's position echoing the sentiments of shadow chancellor John McDonnell, who said he would let a homeless family move into No11 Downing Street.

During the interview, he also apologises to those who have suffered as a result of his party's delays in dealing with allegations of anti-Semitism.

Jeremy Corbyn: It's when its repeated... in the afternoon.'

Julie Etchingham: 'So you don't sit down as a family to watch the Queen's speech.'  

Jeremy Corbyn: 'We don't watch television very much on Christmas Day. Maybe a film in the evening. Erm I'd like to do a bit of exercise on Christmas morning.'

Julie Etchingham: 'You do some exercise on Christmas morning. I don't think the Queen's speech is in the morning.

'It's three o'clock in the afternoon. That's when everybody watches it.'

Jeremy Corbyn: 'Well. Our Christmas is sometimes...'

Julie Etchingham: 'You don't watch it do you, Mr Corbyn.' 

Jeremy Corbyn: 'There is lots .. lots to do .. I enjoy the presence of my family and friends around Christmas. Obviously, like everybody else does.

'And, I also visit the homeless shelter, either on Christmas Day, or the day before, to talk to, and listen to people's lives, about how they could be made better with a government that cared for them.'

Humiliation for Jeremy Corbyn as his Palace confrontation with Donald Trump over the NHS falls flat and he is kept apart from the President - who said he would NOT want the health service even 'on a silver platter' 
Jeremy Corbyn has suffered fresh humiliation by being kept apart from Donald Trump at Tuesday night's Buckingham Palace reception after vowing to confront the US President over the sanctity of the NHS.

The Labour leader said he would warn the President that 'public services are not for sale' at a gathering of Nato leaders and Royals hosted by the Queen.

But in an embarrassing setback, the left-winger never got the chance to speak with Mr Trump and follow through on his promise, which was derided by one cabinet minister as a 'desperate stunt'. 

It was the second blow Mr Corbyn has been dealt yesterday after the President killed his main election attack line by flatly dismissing the idea he wants a post-Brexit trade deal to open the health service to American companies and push up drugs prices.

James Abbott-Thompson, the son of Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, has been charged with assaulting two police officers
The son of Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott has been charged with two counts of assault over alleged attacks on police officers during a disturbance at the Foreign Office.
James Abbott-Thompson, 28, was arrested on Friday afternoon last week after police were called to the Foreign Office in Westminster, where he used to work.
He was later charged with two counts of assault by beating an emergency services worker and a public order offence.

Westminster Magistrates' Court heard on Monday that he is accused of spitting at and punching one officer and biting the thumb of another. 
He was bailed to appear back in front of magistrates in February. 
By that time, if Labour win next week's General Election, his mother could be Home Secretary, in charge of the country's police forces, two of whose members he is accused of assaulting.

Ms Abbott is currently campaigning for a Labour government in which she would be in charge of the police as Home Secretary

According to his LinkedIn page, Abbott-Thompson got a position in the Foreign Office's Diplomatic Fast Stream in 2014 and was based in London for two and a half years.

He was then moved to the British Embassy in Rome until June this year, when he went on secondment to consultancy firm HewardMills, which he has since left.

Abbott-Thompson is the son of Ms Abbott and Ghanaian architect Richard Thompson, who divorced a year after his birth.

He was at the centre of a political row in 2003 when his left-wing mother was accused of hypocrisy for sending him to the £10,000-a-year City of London School.

Abbott-Thompson studied at Cambridge before getting a job at the Foreign Office

He went on to study sixth form in Ghana and law at University of Cambridge's Trinity College.

The Met Police confirmed they were called to an incident at the Foreign Office in King Charles Street, Westminster at 2.45pm last Friday.

A spokesman said: 'James Adam Abbott-Thompson, 28, was charged on Sunday 1 December with two counts of assault by beating of an emergency services worker.

'He was further charged with an offence under Section 4 of the Public Order Act. He appeared in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday, 2 December.

'He was granted bail and next appears at City of London Magistrates' Court on 7 February.'

The alleged assaults are said to have taken place after Abbott-Thompson arrived at the Foreign Office building and asked to speak to someone, who was not present.

A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed the three charges and the trial date of February 7.

Ms Abbott's office has been contacted for comment. 

Police were called to the Foreign Office in King Charles Street, Westminster last Friday +4

Ms Abbott spoke about her son during a TV interview when she was running for the Labour leadership in 2010.

Explaining her decisions about his education, she said: 'I knew what could happen if my son went to the wrong school and got in with the wrong crowd.

'They are subjected to peer pressure and when that happens it's very hard for a mother to save her son. Once a black boy is lost to the world of gangs it's very hard to get them back.'

She told the BBC's Andrew Neil: 'West Indian mums will go to the wall for their children.'

Ms Abbott made Jonathan Aitken, the former Conservative cabinet minister who served a prison sentence for perjury, her son's godfather, after she worked with him at Thames Television in the 1980s.

Jeremy Corbyn laid the blame for the deadly terror attack in London Bridge at the door of Donald Trump today as he ignored pleas to avoid politicising the atrocity. 
 
The Labour leader used an image of Friday's bloody carnage, which left two innocent people dead, in an election video released just hours before the US president's arrival in Britain.
 
A video posted on the Labour leader's Twitter feed shows flowers beside the roadsign in the capital, to a soundtrack of Mr Corbyn condemning Western wars and emotional music.

Tomorrow: Mr Trump will attend a reception at Buckingham Palace with the Queen to welcome Nato leaders
 
Wednesday: Nato summit takes place at the Grove Hotel, near Watford
 
 
The tweet has the message: 'It's time for Britain to stop clinging on to Donald Trump's coat-tails.' 
 
It came despite complaints that both main parties have been exploiting the deadly attack ahead of Mr Trump's expected arrival in the UK this evening for a Nato summit. 
 
Ex-Labour MP John Woodcock added: 'By saying Britain only has itself to blame for the London Bridge terror attack, Jeremy Corbyn once again side with the enemies of the UK rather standing up for British citizens.
 
'This sick anti-west propaganda ignores the fact that scores of countries that had nothing to do with the Iraq war are targeted by Islamists - it is exactly the kind of thing you'd expect from Osama bin Laden not a man who wants the keys to Downing Street.

'This is from a man who travels thousands of miles and places flowers on terrorists graves then... forgets he has done it,' he added.
 
'He is not fit to be even considered to visit Number 10, never mind be a potential occupant of it.'

In a bruising prime time pre-election interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil, Mr Corbyn said he wanted to have 'a discussion' with Ephraim Mirvis after he accused the left-winger of  allowing the 'poison' of anti-Semitism to take root in Labour.

Jeremy Corbyn laid the blame for the deadly terror attack in London Bridge at the door of Donald Trump today as he ignored pleas to avoid politicising the atrocity. 

The Labour leader used an image of Friday's bloody carnage, which left two innocent people dead, in an election video released just hours before the US president's arrival in Britain.

A video posted on the Labour leader's Twitter feed shows flowers beside the roadsign in the capital, to a soundtrack of Mr Corbyn condemning Western wars and emotional music.

Donald Trump's itenary for three-day UK visit
Tonight: Mr Trump is due to land at an airport in London

Tomorrow: Mr Trump will attend a reception at Buckingham Palace with the Queen to welcome Nato leaders

Wednesday: Nato summit takes place at the Grove Hotel, near Watford


The tweet has the message: 'It's time for Britain to stop clinging on to Donald Trump's coat-tails.' 

It came despite complaints that both main parties have been exploiting the deadly attack ahead of Mr Trump's expected arrival in the UK this evening for a Nato summit. 

Ex-Labour MP John Woodcock added: 'By saying Britain only has itself to blame for the London Bridge terror attack, Jeremy Corbyn once again side with the enemies of the UK rather standing up for British citizens.

'This sick anti-west propaganda ignores the fact that scores of countries that had nothing to do with the Iraq war are targeted by Islamists - it is exactly the kind of thing you'd expect from Osama bin Laden not a man who wants the keys to Downing Street. 

'Britain will be less safe if we let Corbyn Labour's Jihadi apologists take over the country.'

Tories also reacted with fury to the online video posted to Mr Corbyn's 2.2million Twitter followers.

Morcombe and Lunesgate candidate David Morris said it was 'appalling behaviour especially degrading to our closest allies.'

'This is from a man who travels thousands of miles and places flowers on terrorists graves then... forgets he has done it,' he added.

'He is not fit to be even considered to visit Number 10, never mind be a potential occupant of it.' 

Boris Johnson has defended launching a crackdown on the treatment of convicted terrorists after the rampage by 28-year-old Usman Khan, who was out of prison on licence.

Former University of Cambridge students Saskia Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25, were fatally stabbed during a prisoner rehabilitation event on Friday. 

In a searing rebuke, Mr Merritt's father David, an estates manager at a sixth form college and Labour activist, said last night: 'Don't use my son's death, and his and his colleague's photos - to promote your vile propaganda.

'Jack stood against everything you stand for - hatred, division, ignorance.' 

David Merritt, who describes himself on Twitter as a 'pragmatic left-leaning atheist', has been repeatedly retweeting messages urging politicians against swingeing reactions to the London Bridge attack. 

The family of Mr Merritt, from Cottenham, Cambridgeshire, asked yesterday that his death not be used to justify introducing 'even more draconian sentences' on offenders in a heartfelt tribute. 

Khan was on licence and wearing an electronic monitoring tag when he launched the attack, which injured three others, after he was invited to the prisoner rehabilitation conference on Friday afternoon.

'It's my job to keep people safe': Boris Johnson defies fury of father of London Bridge terror attack victim
Boris Johnson today denied exploiting the London Bridge terror attack despite a a backlash from the father of one of the victims.

The Prime Minister defended launching a crackdown on the treatment of convicted terrorists after 28-year-old Usman Khan went on a rampage while out of prison on licence. 

Speaking to reporters in Southampton this afternoon, the PM rejected the idea that his action was a knee-jerk response.

'Look at my 2012 manifesto on crime ... I've campaigned for a long time for longer sentences for serious and violent offenders,' he said.

Mr Johnson said it was 'probably clear from the outset' that Khan was 'too tough to crack' when it came to rehabilitation.

'What I'm saying is our job is to keep the public safe and that's what we want to do,' he added.

The event was organised held by Learning Together, a programme associated with Cambridge University's Institute of Criminology.

The attack has prompted the Ministry of Justice to review the licence conditions of every convicted terrorist released from prison, which Mr Johnson told the BBC's Andrew Marr show yesterday said was 'probably about 74' people.

Mr Johnson has vowed to take steps to ensure people are not released early when they commit serious offences.

But speaking to reporters in Southampton this afternoon, the PM rejected the idea that his action was a knee-jerk response.

'Look at my 2012 manifesto on crime ... I've campaigned for a long time for longer sentences for serious and violent offenders,' he said.

Mr Johnson said it was 'probably clear from the outset' that Khan was 'too tough to crack' when it came to rehabilitation.

'What I'm saying is our job is to keep the public safe and that's what we want to do,' he added. 

Mr Corbyn also made a speech on the terrorism threat yesterday, saying Western aggression and austerity was responsible for fuelling the problems, and convicted terrorists should 'not necessarily' serve their full sentences. 

The election video posted on Twitter today includes footage of his speech, interspersed with images including that of the memorial at London Bridge.

Jeremy Corbyn tells Iranian television that the BBC is biased 'towards Israel having a right to exist' in a chilling video clip that reignites the anti-Semitism row engulfing the Labour leader. 

In an interview with Tehran-backed channel Press TV - since banned from operating in the UK - he attacks the British broadcaster's coverage of issues in the Middle East.

In clip that is circulating online today, filmed in 2011 when Mr Corbyn was a backbench MP, he also claims that the then director general Mark Thompson had 'an agenda'.

He said: 'I think there is a bias [in the BBC] towards saying that Israel has a democracy in the Middle East, that Israel has a right to exist, Israel has its security concerns.'

It comes days after he sparked fury after refusing to apologise to British Jews over the anti-Semitism row and clashed with the Chief Rabbi ahead of December's election.

Mr Corbyn made several notable appearances on Tehran-based Press TV as a backbencher. 

In 2012 the channel lost its UK broadcast licence after broadcasting a clip of an apparent confession by documentary-maker Maziar Bahari in Tehran which he claimed was obtained via torture.

The clip of Mr Corbyn also shows him saying: '[There is] pressure on the BBC from probably Mark Thompson, who seems to me to have an agenda in this respect. 

'There seems to be a great deal of pressure on the BBC from the Israeli government and the Israeli embassy and they are very assertive towards all journalists, they challenge every single thing. on reporting the whole time.'

It follows a difficult live TV interview for Mr Corbyn on Tuesday in which he said the Chief Rabbi was 'wrong' to accuse Labour of failing to tackle anti-Semitism' 

In a bruising prime time pre-election interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil, Mr Corbyn refused four times to apologise to British Jews.

He said he wanted to have 'a discussion' with Ephraim Mirvis after he accused the left-winger of allowing the 'poison' of anti-Semitism to take root in Labour.

The Labour leader was challenged over Mr Mirvis's allegation that Labour's claims it is doing everything to tackle anti-Jewish racism was a 'mendacious fiction'.

'No, he's not right. Because he would have to produce the evidence to say that's mendacious,' Mr Corbyn replied.

He insisted he has 'developed a much stronger process' and had sanctioned and removed members who have been anti-Semitic.

But he floundered when Mr Neil detailed specific cases of anti-Semitism by Labour members who faced little or no sanction.

Boris Johnson today said he found it 'quite incredible' to see 'what has happened to the Labour Party'.

He told LBC: 'I think he's slightly not in total control, and I think there's a lack of grip and a culture of anti-Semitism.' 

It came amid reports of Labour switching to a major defensive strategy in the north as Leave voters abandon 'toxic' Mr Corbyn.

A study by YouGov suggested the Tories could smash Labour's 'red wall' of traditional stronghold to win 359 seats out of 650 - up from 317 in the 2017 election and a comfortable 68 majority.

Mr Corbyn was found to secure just 211 seats, down from 262 two years ago - and only just above the historic disaster of 209 when the party was led by his left-wing hero Michael Foot.

A party source told the Times that the campaign was in chaos, telling the newspaper: 'There are too many heads of strategy, people with their heads in the sand about how toxic Jeremy is and a chaotic organisational structure. 

'But it's impossible to plan if you have no leadership.'

Dear Elaine

You could be forgiven for thinking that Jeremy Corbyn is the only threat to Israel in Parliament.

He isn’t.

In the last year there have been 1,143 negative comments about Israel in the UK Parliament.

59% from Labour, 41% from all the others
And if you click here https://www.israelbritain.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/psc.jpg you’ll see what the Palestine Solidarity Campaign expects general election candidates to support.

So please click here https://www.israelbritain.org.uk/pledge/and ask your general election candidates to support the Pledge for Israel
The words of Edmund Burke should ring in our ears.

‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing’.

Yours sincerely

Michael McCann

Unite general secretary Len McCluskey has said the UK’s Chief Rabbi was “wrong” to say Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was not fit to be prime minister.
In a column in The Times on Tuesday, Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis staged an unprecedented intervention, saying antisemitism in the Labour Party was a “poison – sanctioned from the top”.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s World At One programme, Mr McCluskey said: “I think that was wrong and quite extraordinary that a religious leader should come out and say that.”

He added: “Labour has fought, Jeremy Corbyn has fought, I’ve fought all my life against antisemitism. Labour has now very robust procedures to deal with anybody. We don’t want a single antisemite in the Labour Party.”
He continued: “I’m sure that’s what he believes if he said it, I just absolutely, fundamentally disagree with him.”
The party has tried to steer its campaign away from allegations of antisemitism and towards the NHS and climate change.
Corbyn faced pressure to apologise to the Jewish community after failing to when pressed during a 30-minute grilling on the BBC by veteran journalist Andrew Neil on Tuesday evening.

Victims of antisemitism must be made to “feel reassured” for true repentance to be shown, the Archbishop of Canterbury has said.
Justin Welby added that the Chief Rabbi felt he had “no choice” but to intervene in the election period and call out antisemitism in the Labour Party.
Justin Welby added that “true repentance” means “both acknowledging where things have gone wrong, but also changing course and action”.

The Archbishop of Canterbury said that for Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, speaking out about antisemitism was “one of the most painful decisions he’s ever had to take”.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Emma Barnett Show, Mr Welby said: “You’d have to ask him directly, but I obviously know him quite well and when you look at his article he talks about it being one of the most painful decisions he’s ever had to take, and I know that’s true.
“His instincts, like mine and others, are that during an election, you keep schtum, you say nothing. And a lot of people in the Jewish community were saying, ‘you’ve got to speak’, and he felt that there was no choice.”
Asked whether Mr Corbyn should apologise for the party’s issue with antisemitism, Mr Welby said “true repentance” must be shown, but warned that “it’s not a quick thing”.

The Jewish community has always proudly defined itself by the contribution it makes to British life. As the Chief Rabbi emphasised this week to devastating effect, thanks to the Labour Party it is now tragically defined by antisemitism.

And, quite frankly, everyone is sick and tired of hearing it.

The enormity of Ephraim Mirvis’ shocking intervention in The Times this week, two weeks before election day, cannot be overstated.

Nobody in the Jewish community, not the Chief Rabbi nor indeed my newspaper which, last year, united with two other Jewish papers to publish identical front pages warning a Corbyn government would be a threat to British Jews, wants to face this harrowing ordeal day after day, month after month, year after year.

Like the rest of the country, British Jews want a Labour Party that, at its best, mirrors British values. A party that stands up for minorities, gives hope to the young and cares for the old. That’s why, for the majority of British Jews, a vote for Labour at election time always seemed the only moral choice.

Not this time. Not this party.

The Labour Party at this election has lost its soul, its legacy, its Britishness.

The Chief Rabbi accused Corbyn of spreading “antisemitic poison”, but stopped short of calling him antisemitic. So is he? It’s a question many have asked but only Jeremy Corbyn can answer.


Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, Chief Rabbi of United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
He certainly gets on marvellously with antisemites. He likes anti-Jewish murals, mourns antisemitic terrorists and befriends the psychopaths of Hamas and Hezbollah. He shows genuine warmth towards people who, given half a chance, would slaughter every single Jew, from Tel Aviv to Tottenham.

Last week, footage emerged of him backslapping someone straight after they claimed Zionism made Jews “immoral”. This is Corbyn in his comfort zone.

This is why Labour is only the second political party after the BNP to be investigated for antisemitism by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, a watchdog set up by Labour.

Labour is fielding candidates at this election who shouldn’t be allowed in the party, let alone Parliament. Instead of firmly shutting the door in their faces, they are welcomed in and made would-be MPs.

Labour’s candidate in Harlow defended a blog about a ‘Jewish final solution’. Labour’s candidate in Coventry South told a pro-Israel tweeter told to “jump off a cliff”. Labour’s candidate in St Ives is in a band that sings From the River to the Sea’, a song calling for Israel’s destruction. Labour’s candidate in Poplar and Limehouse shared social media posts about “Zionist masters”. Labour’s candidate in Leeds East lied on national TV when he denied saying “Zionism is the enemy of peace”.


Jeremy Corbyn, Jo Swinson, Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage.
Five others have been removed for antisemitism – after intense media pressure. This lot should follow, but don’t hold your breath.

These are precisely the sort of people who’ve enthusiastically joined the party since Corbyn took over.

Call them out for what they are and he denounces his core support.

That’s Corbyn’s catch 20-Jew.

Rather than asking if Jeremy Corbyn is antisemitic, a more revealing question might be: what is it about the Labour Party that antisemites find so attractive? The answer is simple. Jeremy Corbyn.

That’s the truth every voter must choose to ignore if they vote Labour on 12 December.

PUBLISHED: 17:58, 22 November 2019 | UPDATED: 02:04, 23 November 2019
Jeremy Corbyn faced a brutal onslaught from the audience on Question Time tonight as he desperately struggled to convince voters he is fit to be PM.

The Labour leader looked shocked as he was booed on the flagship BBC show when he tried to explain his party's convoluted position on Brexit.

For the first time Mr Corbyn made clear the public will never know whether he personally wants to Leave or Remain - admitting he intends to stay 'neutral' in a second referendum rather than backing the new package he wants to negotiate with the EU. 

In his own grilling on the same programme later, Boris Johnson expressed incredulity that Labour was 'indifferent' on the biggest decision facing the country. 

During a devastating 30-minute mauling, Mr Corbyn reeled as he was confronted by more voters over 'misogynism' and anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. Ryan Jacobs, 36, from Hull, told him that he was not the 'nice old grandpa' he seemed.

'Why do female MPs need bodyguards at party conference?' they said.

The veteran was also asked whether business should be 'frightened' of a left-wing government, as Tom Gray, Rotherham, a 25-year-old housing officer, said: 'Your reckless socialist ideas are genuinely terrifying for me and my family.'   

He was challenged over whether he would bow to Nicola Sturgeon's demand for another Scottish independence referendum - which she has warned would be a red line for propping him up in power if there is a hung Parliament.

He eventually muttered that a new ballot should not take place 'in the early part of the new Parliament', but made clear it would happen. 

He also floundered as he defended the party's pledge to nationalise chunks of BT and offer free broadband to everyone in the country - which experts say would cost £100billion. 

He initially claimed that South Korea had a similar system and everyone received free broadband, before admitting that many people there still paid for the service.

Mr Corbyn is desperately trying to overhaul the Tory advantage in the polls, which has been running at up to 17 points and consistently in double figures.

Such a margin of victory on December 12 would be more than enough to deliver Mr Johnson the overall majority he craves to 'get Brexit done'.

Labour launched its most left-wing manifesto for decades yesterday, pledging to hike taxes by £83billion to fund a massive public spending splurge and nationalisation of swathes of the economy.

The party insists only the wealthy will have to pay more tax. However, the respected IFS think-tank has branded that claim 'not credible'. 

Jeremy Corbyn says he will NEVER reveal whether he backs Leave or Remain 
During a particularly painful exchange, Jeremy Corbyn admitted for the first time that while he wants to renegotiate a Brexit deal and put it to a referendum, he would not back Leave or Remain at any stage. 

One man said: 'Mr Corbyn, will you campaign to remain or leave the EU. Why would anyone vote Labour without knowing the answer to that question?'

Mr Corbyn replied: 'One, we will negotiate a credible Leave deal with the European Union.'

The audience laughed and groaned, prompting Mr Corbyn to snap back: 'Let me finish please, I am trying to answer the gentleman's question.

'Secondly, we will put that alongside remain in a referendum. 

'The role of our government will be to ensure that the referendum is held in a fair atmosphere and we will abide by the result of it and I will adopt… a neutral stance so that I can credibly carry out the results of that to bring our communities and country together rather than continuing an endless debate about the EU and Brexit.'

In one toe-curling clash, a man told Mr Corbyn: 'I heard you talk about free speech and standing up for human rights.

'I have two young daughters and what terrifies me is some of the Labour MPs, some of the female MPs, and the misogyny that has happened in the Labour Party.

'They have been driven out of the party. I look at a video on YouTube of Ruth Smeeth particularly, because and I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt in terms of maybe people aren't doing it in your name.

'But I look at a video of Ruth Smeeth online where she was in a press conference with you and Ruth Smeeth, a Jewish MP, was heckled out of the press conference and there you are at the end of the press conference chatting happily to that same heckler.

'I don't buy this whole nice old grandpa. I see that video and that tells me all I need to know and I am terrified for my daughters because I see what you did in that video.

'I don't understand how you can say you stand up for human rights and free speech when that is how you support a Labour MP at a Labour press conference.

'I think that is disgraceful.'

Mr Corbyn responded: 'Nobody should suffer any abuse in public life or privately.'

The audience member hit back and said: 'Watch the video.'

Who was in the QT audience tonight? 
The Question Time audience was made up of around 150 people.

The BBC said it was a roughly equal split between Conservative and Labour supporters with a smaller number for the Liberal Democrats and SNP. 

The corporation added that there was a slim majority for people who voted Leave over Remain, except for some who were too young to vote at the last election. 

But not everyone was happy with the selection.

Former No10 communications chief Robbie Gibb tweeted: 'This audience feels like it's full political activists rather than typical voters.'

'Secondly, we will put that alongside remain in a referendum. The role of our government will be to ensure that the referendum is held in a fair atmosphere and we will abide by the result of it and I will adopt… a neutral stance so that I can credibly carry out the results of that to bring our communities and country together rather than continuing an endless debate about the EU and Brexit.'

Mr Corbyn was pushed hard on the issue of whether there should be a second referendum on Scottish independence.

He said: 'I don't see a priority in Scotland of having an independence referendum.'

He added: 'In the early years of a Labour government we will not be supporting an independence referendum instead we will be investing in Scotland.'

Host Fiona Bruce pressed Mr Corbyn to define exactly what he meant when he said 'early years' as she asked if it was two, three or four years.

He said: 'The early years. First two years. At least.'

Mr Corbyn's answer prompted more audience laughter. 

Taking to the stage immediately after Mr Corbyn, Ms Sturgeon insisted if there is a hung Parliament he will cave into her demands for a referendum next year so he can get the keys to Downing Street. 

And during his appearance later, Mr Johnson said Mr Corbyn's Brexit stance appeared to have 'mutated'.

The Prime Minister then said: 'He is now going to be neutral on the deal that he proposes to do.

'I don't see how he can do a deal when he is going to be neutral or indifferent about the deal that he wants to do.

'Never mind that. I do not think whatever deal Mr Corbyn proposes, I don't think it is sensible for this great country of ours to spend next year in yet more delectable disputations about the EU and then another referendum on Scotland. How can that be right for our country?'

It is the second major TV showdown of the campaign so far - after the pair went head-to-head in an ITV special earlier this week.

Nicola Sturgeon says Corbyn would risk the union to win power 
Nicola Sturgeon tonight claimed Jeremy Corbyn would be willing to sacrifice the Union of the United Kingdom if that was the price of taking power after the election. 

Mr Corbyn said he would not allow a second Scottish independence referendum to take place in the 'early years' of a Labour government - a period he defined as 'at least' two years. 

But Ms Sturgeon, the SNP leader, is adamant that a second breakaway poll must take place before the end of next year.

The Scottish First Minister claimed this evening that Mr Corbyn would be willing to tear up his red line on the issue if he was in a position to form a government after December 12 but needed the support of the SNP. 

She said the Labour leader would not be able to resist the possibility of forming a government and rolling out his massive spending plans. 

Ms Sturgeon's comments on a BBC Question Time special confirm that Labour support for a second independence referendum would be her main ask during potential post-election cooperation talks. 

That clash was generally seen as a draw, with Mr Johnson hammering his opponent over his muddled Brexit stance, while the Labour leader got in his key attack lines on the NHS.

This time they were being interrogated separately for 30 minutes by members of the public in the audience, with host Fiona Bruce trying to keep order. 

Despite focus groups conducted for polling expert Lord Ashcroft in constituencies in the north of England last night suggested voters are highly sceptical of populist giveaways such as free broadband for everyone. 

Worryingly for Mr Corbyn polling in the constituency of Great Grimsby this week found that the Brexit Party has been siphoning off Labour votes - apparently supporting Nigel Farage's repeated claim that he will not split the Eurosceptic vote.   

There is still time for things to change, with the leaders facing the potential for disaster in unpredictable TV specials like Question Time. 

During last night's regular edition of the show, a motorbike-loving £80,000-a-year IT consultant sparked a huge row after savaging Mr Corbyn's plan to 'super-tax' hard-working Britons. 

Rob 'Bullet' Barber lashed out at shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon for his party's policy of imposing £83billion in new taxes to fund Mr Corbyn's massive spending spree.  

The 38-year-old IT consultant and high-profile motorcycle racer from Bury was cheered to the rafters as he vented his rage at the left-wing raid, saying it was a 'lie' that Labour was only targeting the very wealthy and billionaires.

But Mr Barber also had some viewers scratching their heads after claiming he was not in the top 5 per cent of earners, despite saying his salary was more than £80,000.

Among a slew of punishing tax rises in the Labour manifesto published yesterday was a new 45p tax rate for those earning over £80,000.

The scale of the challenge facing Mr Corbyn was illustrated today after a new poll found that less than a quarter of British voters like the Labour leader. 

Some 44 per cent of people who took part in a Ipsos MORI survey said they like Mr Johnson. 

But just 23 per cent said the same of Mr Corbyn. That number ranks as the lowest likeability rating for a Tory or Labour leader recorded by the polling company since 2007. 

Overall, the poll put support for the Tories at 44 per cent, up three points on a month ago, while Labour is up four points to 28 per cent. 

Mr Farage did not take part in this evening's Question Time event but he tried to get his election campaign back on track today as he set out his vision for Britain. 

He launched the Brexit Party's election 'contract' with the British people as he pledged to abolish the House of Lords and scrap the BBC licence fee. 

He also outlined a pledge to make it easier for people to force a referendum on crunch issues. 

The Brexit Party wants to introduce 'Citizens' Initiatives' to allow people to demand a national ballot if they are able to secure the signatures of at least five million registered voters. 

Mr Farage insisted there would be a decade time limit on repeating votes on the same issue. 

But the proposal does raise the prospect of a 'Neverendum' series of votes on the UK's EU membership.

Boris Johnson faces audience barbs over 'telling the truth' as he runs the Question Time gauntlet 
Boris Johnson faced barbs over his trustworthiness, controversial newspaper columns and his failure to publish a report on allegations of Russian interference in British democracy tonight as he ran the gauntlet of the Question Time audience.

The Prime Minister's appearance on the BBC's flagship election special began with an immediate challenge over how important it is to 'tell the truth'. 

Amid jeers from the crowd, Mr Johnson insisted that the main threat to public trust was the failure to honour the result of the 2016 Brexit referendum. 

'I think it is absolutely vital,' he said. 'And I think that the issue of trust in politics is central to this election. 

'And fundamental to the corrosion of trust in politics at the moment is the failure of politicians to deliver Brexit.' 

Mr Johnson was also challenged over delays to the publication of a report on alleged Russian interference in British politics. 

But he dismissed claims it had been deliberately held back to avoid embarrassment as 'Bermuda Triangle stuff'.  

Mr Johnson said Mr Corbyn's Brexit stance appeared to have 'mutated'.

The Prime Minister then said: 'He is now going to be neutral on the deal that he proposes to do.

'Never mind that. I do not think whatever deal Mr Corbyn proposes, I don't think it is sensible for this great country of ours to spend next year in yet more delectable disputations about the EU and then another referendum on Scotland.

'How can that be right for our country?' 

Mr Johnson tried to focus on Brexit during his responses to many of the questions he was asked this evening. 

But the audience laughed and groaned when he claimed MPs had been 'given every opportunity' to agree to his Brexit deal. 

'On your point about the reasons for having an election, let's be in no doubt, I didn't want to have an election,' he said.

'No prime minister wants to have an election on December 12. We had to do it because Parliament is blocking Brexit.'

The audience erupted into groans when Mr Johnson added: 'They were given every opportunity to pass it ... every opportunity to pass and they passed a law to insist that extended beyond October 31.'    

Aside from Brexit, Mr Johnson faced a particularly tough grilling on why a report into possible Russian interference in British democracy had not been published before the election. 

Mr Johnson defended the decision and said: 'There is absolutely no evidence that I know of to show any interference in any British electoral event.'

He added: 'And the reason I won't [publish it now] is I see no reason, or if I decided not to ages ago, is because I see no reason to interfere with the normal timetable... just because an election is going on.'

Mr Johnson said the idea that Russia had interfered in previous democratic events in the UK was 'complete Bermuda Triangle stuff'.

'As is the suggestion that the referendum... was somehow false, not fair, wrong and should now be cancelled,' he said. 

Mr Johnson also came under fire for comments he made in newspaper columns he wrote in the past. 

He refused to apologise for a series of controversial remarks but insisted he had never meant to cause any hurt

'I defend my right to speak out and I do defend my right to… If you actually read the piece, which I don’t know how many people have, if you read the piece what I was really doing..'

As the Prime Minister finished his sentence he was interrupted by a heckler, who cried: 'Which one?'

'Well. I suggest you read any of them - or all of them', Mr Johnson replied.

'What I was really doing was mounting a strong liberal defence of the right of women in this country to wear what they choose and not to be oppressed into wearing something they don’t want to wear.

'I have written many millions of words in my life as a journalist and I have... genuinely never intended to cause hurt or pain to anybody and that is my intention,' he said. 

'What I will say because I think you are referring to a particular article of a year or so ago...'

Host Fiona Bruce then stepped in and said: 'To be fair, there's a few articles. So there's the Muslims going around looking like letterboxes, which was last year, you referred to tribal warriors with watermelon smiles and flag-waving pickaninnies and then just to get another demographic in, tank-topped bum boys.'

Mr Johnson replied: 'If you go through all my articles with a fine-tooth comb and take out individual phrases there is no doubt that you can find things that can be made to seem offensive and of course I understand that.'

The Conservative party leader also claimed that describing homosexual men as 'tank-topped bum boys' was not offensive, and dodged an audience question about the comment.

British Army 'could stage mutiny under Corbyn', says senior serving general
Generals would not 'allow a prime minister to jeopardise the security of the UK'

A senior serving general has reportedly warned that a Jeremy Corbyn government could face "a mutiny" from the Army if it tried to downgrade them.

The unnamed general said members of the armed forces would begin directly and publicly challenging the labour leader if he tried to scrap Trident, pull out of Nato or announce “any plans to emasculate and shrink the size of the armed forces.”

He told the Sunday Times: “The Army just wouldn’t stand for it. The general staff would not allow a prime minister to jeopardise the security of this country and I think people would use whatever means possible, fair or foul to prevent that. You can’t put a maverick in charge of a country’s security.

“There would be mass resignations at all levels and you would face the very real prospect of an event which would effectively be a mutiny.”

The general, who served in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, said he and many soldiers were sickened by Mr Corbyn’s refusal to condemn the IRA, which killed 730 troops and injured 7,000 more during the conflict.

His shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, was forced to apologise when it was revealed he had called for IRA members, including hunger striker Bobby Sands, to be honoured by the British government.

The general said: “Many soldiers are disgusted by the comments of Corbyn and John McDonnell [about] the IRA — men who have not only murdered British soldiers but also hundreds of members of their own community.”

Labour's Shadow Foreign Secretary Hilary Benn on scrapping Trident and leaving Nato: 'I don't think that is going to happen'

Labour leadership: Jeremy Corbyn calls for nuclear disarmament at a CND event

'Corbyn's plan to UK from Nato would be disastrous'
Responding to the general's suggestion of a potential mutiny among members of the Armed Forces, a senior Labour source told The Independent: "It does seem like quite an extraordinary statement".

Labour's newly appointed shadow Foreign Secretary, Hilary Benn, has said he does not believe Labour would back either nuclear disarmament or a withdrawal from the military alliance.

Mr Corbyn had earlier announced he would be pulling out of the Stop The War Coalition's annual conference due to his busy schedule.

And it comes after senior members of the Shadow Cabinet said they were planning to rebel if Mr Corbyn attempted to block another vote for air strikes against Syria.

The Sunday Times reported that half of Mr Corbyn’s Cabinet have approached David Cameron to say they are prepared to defy the whip and vote with the government so long as Mr Cameron comes up with a coherent plan.

Tony Blair urged tactical voting today as he accused Jeremy Corbyn and Boris Johnson of 'fantasy' Brexit plans - saying neither deserve a majority.

The former PM complained that British politics is 'a mess' and 'utterly dysfunctional', repeating his call for a referendum to cancel the departure from the EU.

He said the Labour leader Corbyn was offering 'populism of the Left', while the Tories were just relying on the public rejecting the Opposition's high-tax and nationalisation agenda. 

Warning it would be 'unwise' to give either party a majority, Mr Blair said voters should treat the contest on December 12 as '650 mini elections' - suggesting they should back whichever candidates will help the Remain cause. 

He said he personally would be voting for the Labour hopeful in Cities of London and Westminster, but he 'understood' why people would support Lib Dem Chuka Umunna in the seat.

'The truth is: the public aren't convinced either main party deserve to win this election outright,' Mr Blair said.

'They're peddling two sets of fantasies; and both, as majority governments, pose a risk it would be unwise for the country to take.'

The intervention came in a speech at a Reuters Newsmaker event this morning.

Mr Blair has been supporting individual candidates in the campaign so far, but made clear his disdain for Labour's current leadership. 

'The Conservative Party say vote Tory and Brexit will be done; it will be over,' he said.

Boris Johnson hammers home messages on NHS and Brexit 
Boris Johnson delicately sheared a sheep today - as he hammered home his key messages on Brexit and the NHS.

The PM has been campaigning in Wales after unveiling the 'safety first' programme yesterday, focusing on pledges to get the UK out of the EU, recruit more nurses, and cut taxes.

With a poll showing the Tories 11 points ahead of Labour, the party's offer deliberately made no effort to compete with the extraordinary spending splurge proposed by Labour.

Jeremy Corbyn has put forward an eye-watering £83billion a year in day-to-day spending, plus hundreds of billions on nationalisation - including the state seizing chunks of BT to offer everyone free broadband.

In an apparent sign of desperation yesterday, shadow chancellor John McDonnell announced another £58billion would be handed to women pensioners - despite the measure not having been costed in its manifesto.

Mr Johnson tended to a sheep as he visited the Royal Welsh Winter Fair in Llanelwedd this afternoon. 

'They even add - do it and we can get back to dealing with the important issues.

'The cheek is quite breath-taking. So, having visited this debacle upon us, which has distracted us from those big issues for over three years, they now use the distraction as a reason for doing Brexit, not abandoning it.

'But it appeals. It is, however, a fantasy. Brexit isn't over on 12 December, nor even on 31 January next year. We immediately begin the new phase of Brexit negotiation.'

He added: 'The Conservatives calculate that they can force people to elect them, despite worry over Brexit, because Jeremy Corbyn is the alternative.

'The Labour Party leadership calculate they can combine traditional Labour support around issues like the NHS, with Remain voters who hate Brexit, despite fear about the Labour Leader.

'In other words, both parties want to win on the basis that whatever your dislike of what they're offering, the alternative is worse.'

Mr Blair said: 'Yet though Brexit is a distraction, it is also the vital determinant of the nation's future.

'It remains the single most important decision since 1945. Because of its effect on the economy, it impacts every one of the non-Brexit promises the parties are making.

'Doing it matters. How it is done matters. And exhaustion is not the frame of mind in which to do it.

'No-deal Brexit is not off the table. It is slap bang in the middle of it.

'When people hear the phrase no deal, they often think we just mean failure to agree; which in Brexiteer language means we haven't surrendered.

'What it really means is throwing our economy off a cliff and hoping it finds a parachute on the way down.

'It is a risk no responsible leader would take. Yet we may be about to empower a leader - Boris Johnson - to take such a risk.'

On Labour, he will say: 'The Labour Party manifesto is heralded by its leadership as the most radical ever.

'This is true. It promises a revolution; and if implemented it would indeed amount to one...The problem with revolutions is never how they begin but how they end.'

Mr Blair is expected to say: 'The polls predict a Conservative victory and put the chances of an outright Labour victory as negligible. But I wouldn't trust Boris Johnson with a blank cheque.'

Mr Blair said he had been campaigning for 'great Labour candidates' - but said there were 'good solid, mainstream independent-minded' individuals in both main parties. 

'There are good, solid mainstream, independent minded MPs and candidates in both parties,' he said. 

'Like many, I have been campaigning for great Labour candidates because we know parliament will be poorer without them. 

'I am sure the same is true of the Conservative Party and there are those who were expelled for their moderation also standing.'

Luvvies for Labour! Jeremy Corbyn bathes in the glow of backing from singer MIA and veteran left-wing film director Ken Loach at election event in London 

Jeremy Corbyn bathed in the glow of backing from Labour 'luvvies' including singer MIA and veteran left-wing film director Ken Loach at an election event in London last night. 

Musicians and actors heaped praise on the Labour leader as he unveiled an 'arts manifesto' - with some insisting he should not quit even if he loses to the Tories again on December 12.

But Labour activists and Jewish groups expressed dismay at the presence of Loach, pointing out that he had dismissed concerns about anti-Semitism in the party.  

Hip-hop performer MIA said if Mr Corbyn fails to become PM it would still be 'very hard' to find another candidate who was 'not corrupted' to replace him as leader.

Speaking at the Theatre Royal Stratford East last night, the Paper Planes singer said described Mr Corbyn as 'the last stand that England has got'.

Discussing the possibility of Mr Corbyn standing down if Labour loses next month's election, the rapper added: 'To get someone with such a track record is going to be impossible.

'It's going to be very hard to find people who are not corrupted in some sort of way.'

Loach, who directed the Bafta-winning film I, Daniel Blake, said the left-wing party's plan for the arts was 'transformative'.

He said Labour was offering a 'way into a world that will be new and exciting'.

In a rallying call to supporters, Mr Loach said Labour faced the 'fight of our lives' against the 'public school bluster' of the Tories during the remaining two-and-a-half weeks of the campaign.

He added: 'We fight... for those who don't want to live in an unequal society.

'Not only for those who live on a zero hours contract, but those who are ashamed to live in a country with food banks.'

Before the event, the Jewish Labour Movement group tweeted its concerns about Loach's involvement.

'According to him antisemitism in the Labour Party is ‘mischief’ and the Holocaust is up for discussion. Why is Jeremy Corbyn sharing a stage with this man?' the group said.

Ed Miliband's former adviser Ayesha Hazarika added: 'I like the arts policy stuff but him? Really? Wasn’t Lily Allen available? Or stormzy?

Addressing the crowd last night, Mr Corbyn said: 'I love the arts, I love theatre, I love art, music, I love the inspiration that it brings to all our lives.

'Arts, music and culture are not separate from science, engineering and ideas.

'You need that inspiration in whatever you do.

'Our arts policy is to create a £1 billion arts fund, and that will ensure that the libraries, theatres, and the local arts facilities are improved and remain available for all.'

Labour has vowed to suspend British arms sales to Israel it says are used against Palestinian civilians.

The party committed to the policy in its general election manifesto unveiled at a launch in Birmingham on Thursday.

The programme promises to immediately suspend arms sales to Israel “used in violation of the human rights of Palestinian civilians” and to Saudi Arabia used in the conflict in Yemen.

It vows to “conduct a root-and-branch reform of our arms exports regime so ministers can never again turn a blind eye to British-made weapons being used to target innocent civilians.”

The manifesto pledges to “immediately recognise the state of Palestine” and reaffirms Labour’s commitment to a two-state solution.

Maureen Lipman’s Beattie makes comeback in video mocking Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour
The Coronation Street star brought back Beattie, the Jewish grandmother from British Telecom's well-known 1980s adverts, in video mocking the Labour Party

Maureen Lipman’s beloved Beattie made a surprise comeback this week in a blistering video tearing into Jeremy Corbyn.

Beattie made television history in British Telecom’s well-known 1980s advert, in which, on the phone to her grandson who lamented his poor exam performance, but passed pottery and sociology, she claimed: “You get an ‘ology, you’re a scientist.”

Lipman, 74, who plays Evelyn Plummer in Coronation Street, recreated the Jewish grandmother in a short clip produced by Mainstream, an anti-extremism campaign led by former Labour minister Ian Austin.

In character as Beattie, Lipman told her friend Nora: “Of course, we were all Labour, everybody voted Labour. I voted Labour all my life.

“You know what my late husband said? If you’re Jewish, they gave you your Labour Party badge the day after your circumcision. They gave with one hand, they took with the other.”

She added: “But this lot. This lot’s not Labour. They’re not socialists. You know what they are, Nora? They’re extremists, that’s what my Melvyn says, and he’s not often wrong.”

Speaking of accusations of institutional antisemitism in the Labour Party, she said: “The antisemitism, who would have believed that? The bullying, the hectoring, the driving out of good Jewish MPs, the sitting down with people he shouldn’t sit down with.”

On Labour’s policy proposal to roll out free broadband across homes in the UK, she said: “It’s taken me ten years Nora to learn how to Skype my grandchildren.

“I can do the shopping online, the dry goods, I can do the banking online so I don’t have to walk four miles to a bank that’s not even there and he wants to take it away and ruin it – a man who thinks you get out of Brexit with a revolving door.”

On her decision to revive the iconic character, Lipman told Jewish News: “Thirty years it’s taken me to shrug off Beattie. Why would I ruin what’s left of my career? That my life as a  national treasure was perhaps less important than the rest of my life in an uncivilised country.”

She added that while she could “easily have written an article” on the subject, she hoped she could “move mountains with humour.”

Lipman told The Sun she had felt compelled to make the video to speak out against what she saw as “the flagrant antisemitism” that “made it impossible for me to vote Labour at this election.”

“It was only when big spender Corbyn announced that he would take control of broadband that I began to wonder what Beattie, newly liberated by computer literacy, would make of handing over that freedom to a bunch of profligate people with scant regard for her centrist sensibilities,” she added.

Lindsey Graham says he will call Adam Schiff to testify in Senate trial
November 14, 2019
Mgid
Lindsey Graham dropped a devastating bombshell on Adam Schiff: if Democrats vote to impeach President Trump, the Senate trial will feature Adam Schiff testifying — under oath.
On Wednesday, Senator Graham told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he would indeed subpoena Schiff.

“One of the witnesses will be Adam Schiff because if he, in fact, did meet with the whistleblower, and coached the guy up, I think that’s relevant to the impeachment inquiry itself,” said Graham.

Schiff said yesterday that he does not know who the whistleblower is — which is hard to believe since his staff has been coordinating with him.

It would be interesting if, under oath, Schiff would say the same thing. Facing possible perjury charges, he might be forced to tell the truth.

And that would be devastating for Democrats, who has repeatedly tried to play down the accusations that this whole thing is a farce and they were coordinating with the whistleblower from the start.

Lindsey Graham: I Will Call Adam Schiff to Testify in the Senate

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday evening that he will call Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) to testify in the Senate if the House impeaches President Donald Trump.
Graham added that he would not allow a trial of President Donald Trump in the Senate based on hearsay evidence alone, and without testimony from the “whistleblower.”

Graham was speaking after the close of the first day of public hearings in the House Intelligence Committee as part of the “impeachment inquiry” authorized by Democrats in a House resolution that passed on party lines October 31.


After the first two witnesses testified, Democrats on the committee voted along party lines to table a motion made by Republicans to call the “whistleblower” — who admitted having no first-hand knowledge — to testify in person.

Republicans — notably Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) — pointed out that neither of the two witnesses would qualify to testify in court, since they only had “hearsay” evidence, i.e. they did not see or hear anything relevant themselves.

The Sixth Amendment, which guarantees the right to confront one’s accuser, excludes hearsay evidence in most circumstances — especially when the direct evidence, in this case the transcript of the telephone call between the president and President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine.

Graham, as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and a former impeachment manager during the trial of former President Bill Clinton, would have considerable sway over the procedural rules the Senate would adopt for Trump’s trial if the House impeaches the president.

He declared that he would bar any case against the president based on hearsay alone, suggesting the prospects of a motion to dismiss. “Any resolution setting up a trial in the Senate — I’m going to make sure that hearsay cannot be the basis of an impeachment investigation,” he said.

“If you excluded hearsay, like every other court in the land, there’s nothing there,” he added. “If you invoked the hearsay rule, what would be left?” He described impeachment based on hearsay as “a threat to the presidency itself.”

Graham added that he would require that the “whistleblower” testify.

“Any trial in the Senate must expose the whistleblower so the president can confront his accuser. I will not accept a trial in the Senate until I know who the whistleblower is,” he said.

Graham also said that Congress needed to satisfy questions about the whistleblower’s potential motivations — and whether he had a role in former Vice President Joe Biden’s conflict of interest regarding his son Hunter’s board position in a corrupt Ukrainian company, Burisma. Biden threatened to block $1 billion of U.S. aid unless Ukraine fired a prosecutor who was, theoretically at least, overseeing an investigation of the company’s corruption.

Some media reports have suggested that the whistleblower worked for Biden under the Obama administration.

“Was the whistleblower connected to Joe Biden in any way? … Here’s the point: did the whistleblower engage in an effort to get the Ukrainian president [at the time, Petro] Poroshenko, to weigh in and stop the investigation of this gas company [Burisma]? Was there a connection between the whistleblower and Biden’s effort to call the Ukraine?

Graham also vowed that House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) would be called to testify. Ordinarily, he said, he would not call a member of the House to testify, as a matter of mere oversight, but an impeachment trial was a special case.

“One of the witnesses will be Adam Schiff because if he, in fact, did meet with the whistleblower, and coached the guy up, I think that’s relevant to the impeachment inquiry itself,” Graham said.

Schiff denied having met the whistleblower, and denied knowing the whistleblower’s identity, in the hearing on Wednesday — but he was not under oath.

The Labour we lost: Jews, Jeremy Corbyn and a fraying bond
Next year marks the centenary of the Jewish Labour Movement's affiliation with the Labour Party. We look at the rich legacy of Jewish support for the left many see as under threat

Next year is the centenary of the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM)’s affiliation with the party. But rather than prepare for a celebration, many in the community fear the prospect of a Jeremy Corbyn government.

The JLM, officially affiliated with the party since 1920, said it would not campaign for candidates “unless in exceptional circumstances”. Meanwhile, looming large on the horizon, a verdict on whether the party is institutionally antisemitic is expected from the Equalities and Human Rights Commission early next year.


It is a remarkable indictment for a party that boasts a rich legacy of Jewish support intertwined with Poale Zion, as the JLM was once called.

Poale Zion emerged from Jewish trade unions and a flourishing political scene that featured a flurry of working men’s clubs, debating societies and English and Yiddish language newspapers in London’s East End. It played a pivotal role in the Labour Party’s commitment to a Jewish national home laid out in its War Aims Memorandum published in August 1917.


Pamphlet from the early days of the movement
“Throughout its 99-year history, Poale Zion and Jewish Labour activists have been members of Parliament, civic leaders and councillors,” said Jewish Labour Movement national secretary Peter Mason. “They’ve become ingrained in the fabric of the Labour of Party that always believed in equality, social justice and the rights of minorities.”

He added: “We’re now in a situation that 99 years on from those earliest moments of people like Ben Gurion coming to Britain to build the British socialist Zionist tradition that the Labour Party that used to represent us has now allowed itself to be captured by this intolerable populist, antisemitic hard left tradition. All of that’s been put in jeopardy,”

Miriam Mirwitch, 26, from London, joined the Labour Party at 16 in response to what she saw as the corrosive impact of austerity measures on her community. “I got really angry about it. I wanted to make a change and I thought that the best way to create that change was to get involved in the Labour movement,” she said.

Mirwitch, who serves on the Jewish Labour Movement’s national executive committee, hailed the “proud history of Jewish Labour activists,” citing the example of MPs Emanuel (Manny) Shinwell and Ruth Smeeth.

Over recent years, the activist found “a tension between being Jewish and being a Labour Party activist” and has received online abuse, including messages containing antisemitic tropes and threats and “very very nasty replies” on social media.

“All of us have experienced antisemitic comments at local meetings, and obviously I firmly believe it is a minority who are like this but the issue is that it’s very present in the structures of the party and that’s what makes it institutional,” she said.

But Mirwitch, who identified as a “stay-fighter,” added: “We need to stay involved in the Labour Party and speaking out if you can because if you leave there’s no one left to speak out against antisemitism, but I also have a huge amount of respect for people who decided that they had to leave.”


Jewish Labour Movement members recall Cable Street
Community involvement in the Labour Party rose in the wake of mass migration from Eastern Europe from 1870 and waning support for the Liberal Party, a party once regarded by many as the natural home of British Jews.

Dr Ben Gidley, senior lecturer at Birkbeck and an associate of the Pears Institute, said: “In the interwar years, particularly in places such as the East End of London, there were many Jewish activists in the Communist Party and in the Labour Party, although many Jews still continued to vote for Liberals out of an older loyalty.

“Within those working-class communities where there were a lot of Jews, the garment industry in particular, but also cabinet makers, the trade unions in those sectors were often attached to the Labour Party.”

Since its founding in 1900, the Labour Party has enjoyed a long history of Jewish contributions, with a staggering 80 peers, 90 MPs and 33 ministers serving in Parliament, and some 19 private members’ bills put forward.

“Many of them [Jewish MPs] made significant contributions to the history of the Labour Party and indeed of Britain,” said Gidley, citing Tom Myers, the first Jewish Labour MP, elected 100 years ago, and Marion Phillips, the first female Jewish MP.

Perhaps the most well-known figure was Scottish MP and peer Emanuel (Manny) Shinwell, Luciana Berger’s great-uncle, who was born to a Polish family in the East End and raised in Glasgow. He made significant contributions towards protecting workers’ rights.

Serving in the House of Commons for 40 years, he rose through the ranks of the party and was appointed chairman and even minister under three Labour governments. The Labour titan served as a minister in Ramsay Macdonald and Clement Attlee’s Labour governments, and later became a member of the House of Lords.

He famously crossed the floor in 1938 to slap Conservative MP Commander Robert Tatton Bower, who taunted him during a heated exchange on the Spanish Civil War and suggested that he “go back to Poland”.Dr Hugh Dalton MP at a Poale Zion meeting (archive)

Another towering figure was the MP Sydney Silverman, perhaps best remembered for leading a 30-year push for the abolition of the death penalty and bringing forward the private member’s bill in 1964 that led to a change in the law.

Born to a family of drapers in Liverpool, he was elected to Parliament in 1935 and retained his seat until his death in 1968. Serving as chairman of the British arm of the World Jewish Congress, he visited Nazi camps after the Second World War and raised the plight of Jewish refugees in Parliament.

Today the relationship between the Labour Party and the Jewish community appears to some to be beyond repair. But the Battle of Cable Street, often seen as an iconic historical moment allying the Jewish community with the left, offers many lessons for the party.

The day entered the annals of history when thousands of anti-fascists came out on the streets of London’s East End to block Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirts march.

“It’s the antisemitism they recognised that wore blackshirts,” said Gidley. “It bought into anti-fascism, but it didn’t necessarily recognise other forms of antisemitism. It didn’t know how to deal with the other faces of antisemitism.”

Irate Corbyn refuses to say if he regrets working for Iran’s Press TV
UK Labour leader claims not to have appeared on channel since Iranian election protests; in the past defended receiving up to £20,000 for 5 appearances between 2009 and 2012

In an interview broadcast Tuesday, UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to disavow his appearances on Iran’s Press TV and claimed that he had not appeared on the Tehran regime’s propaganda channel since the government cracked down on demonstrators protesting election results, presumably referring to the 2009 protests.

According to the UK parliament’s register of members’ interests, Corbyn was still appearing on Press TV as recently as July 11, 2012, The Times reported, six months after a decision by British regulators to revoke the channel’s license and issue a fine for broadcasting an interview with imprisoned Newsweek and Channel 4 journalist Maziar Bahari that was filmed under duress.

The Canadian-Iranian journalist was arrested while broadcasting from Iran on the protests following the elections. Throughout his imprisonment he was tortured and interrogated on his statements against Holocaust denial, his film on Jews trying to escape the Holocaust, and his Jewish connections.

Press TV is an English-language news network connected to the state-owned Iranian broadcasting company.

Asked four times by Channel 4 News if he regrets appearing on the channel, Corbyn, visibly angered, refused to directly answer the question and instead said that he had used the outlet as a forum to discuss human rights and justice.

On Wednesday Bahari added his voice to the growing chorus of criticism against the opposition leader.

“Dear Jeremy Corbyn, it’s very easy to say sorry. I don’t resent you because of you did,” Bahari tweeted. “You may not have known the true nature of Press TV. A good leader must confront his past mistakes and not evade a question four times in a row.”
Corbyn has in the past defended receiving up to £20,000 ($26,285) for five appearances on the channel between 2009 and 2012 — revealed in the UK parliament’s register of members’ financial interests — saying it was “not an enormous amount.”

Footage emerged in August of Corbyn, accused by the Jewish community of tolerating anti-Semitism in his party’s ranks, telling Press TV that the BBC “has a bias towards saying that… Israel has a right to exist.”

In the 2011 interview, posted on Twitter by the British political blogger The Golem, Corbyn explains that “there’s pressure on the BBC from, probably, [then-BBC director general] Mark Thompson, who seems to me to have an agenda in this respect. There seems to be a great deal of pressure on the BBC from the Israeli government, from the Israeli embassy, and they are very assertive towards all journalists and toward the BBC itself. They challenge every single thing on reporting the whole time.”

That Israeli pressure and bias from the likes of Thompson, Corbyn goes on to say, mean the corporation leans in favor of Israel’s existence.

“I think there is a bias towards saying that Israel is a democracy in the Middle East, Israel has a right to exist, Israel has its security concerns,” he says in the 36-second clip.

While allegations of anti-Semitism have dogged Corbyn since he became Labour leader three years ago, the furor has reached fever pitch since March.

The crisis over anti-Semitism in the Labour Party has caused a major schism within its ranks and led Jews to express fears over their future in the country.

Almost 40 percent of British Jews would “seriously consider emigrating” if Corbyn became prime minister, according to a recent poll conducted for The Jewish Chronicle.

On Sunday, Corbyn insisted he was not an anti-Semite, but refused to apologize for a series of incidents involving him and other party members that have drawn accusations of rampant anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment.

It’s a classic pattern of deflection: An accusation hits too close to home. Twist it to make it say something it didn’t, set your social media outriders loose, cue manufactured outrage. Then move on. Labour needs to be careful about throwing stones when the panes in its own glasshouse are murky. 

After Boris Johnson's remarks about Jeremy Corbyn and the kulaks, those around the Labour leader would prefer we didn’t linger too long over their own history of enthusiasm for Stalin and the Soviet Union.

For years, the flag carriers of support for Stalinist Russia were the Moscow-funded Communist Party of Great Britain. With the fall of Communism, some in the party went soft. One faction which didn't...

Jeremy Corbyn praising hate preacher Raed Salah
Ex Labour
Jeremy Corbyn was caught on video calling Muslim hate preacher a 'honoured citizen' and inviting him to 'tea on the terrace' at the House of Commons.
Sheikh Raed Salah believes 9/11 was perpetrated by he Jews, that there should be a global caliphate and his Islamic movement mourned the death of Osama Bin Laden.
He also made a speech in February 2007 during a protest in East Jerusalem in which he accused Jews of using children's blood to bake bread.

Revealed: Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell's close IRA links
Telegraph investigation shows Labour's new leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell have long been associated with the Irish terror group

Andrew GilliganBy Andrew Gilligan7:15PM BST 10 Oct 2015
The true extent of Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell’s links with the IRA is revealed by a Telegraph investigation.

It can be disclosed that for seven years running, while the IRA “armed struggle” was at its height, Mr Corbyn attended and spoke at official republican commemorations to honour dead IRA terrorists, IRA “prisoners of war” and the active “soldiers of the IRA.”

The official programme for the 1988 event, held one week after the IRA murdered three British servicemen in the Netherlands, states that “force of arms is the only method capable of bringing about a free and united Socialist Ireland.” Mr Corbyn used the event to attack the Anglo-Irish Agreement, the precursor of the peace process.

"They were enemies of the peace process. They had a clear choice between the IRA and peaceful nationalism and they chose the IRA."
Nigel Dodds, the Democratic Unionist MP for North Belfast
He said it had resulted in no improvement in the lives of the people of Northern Ireland, adding: “It strengthens rather than weakens the border between the six and the 26 counties, and those of us who wish to see a united Ireland oppose the agreement for that reason.”

The editorial board of a hard-Left magazine, of which Mr Corbyn was a member, wrote an article praising the Brighton bombing. In its article on the IRA attack, which almost wiped out Margaret Thatcher’s Cabinet, the editorial board of London Labour Briefing said the atrocity showed that “the British only sit up and take notice [of Ireland] when they are bombed into it.”

According to an authoritative parliamentary reference work, Mr Corbyn was general secretary of the editorial board. He wrote the front-page story in the same issue of Briefing.

The same edition of Briefing, for December 1984, carried a reader’s letter praising the “audacity” of the IRA attack and stating: “What do you call four dead Tories? A start.”

It mocked Norman, now Lord, Tebbit, the trade secretary who was dug out of the rubble of the Grand Hotel, saying: “Try riding your bike now, Norman.”

• Jeremy Corbyn has turned the Labour Party into a laughing stock

• John McDonnell praised women who spat in employers tea over strike

It can also be revealed that in 2004 Mr McDonnell, now Labour’s shadow chancellor, was given a special award by Sinn Fein and another IRA-supporting body for the “unfailing political and personal support he has given to the republican community in the Six Counties over many years.”

The award was presented to him at a Sinn Fein fundraising dinner by Gerry Kelly, the IRA terrorist who bombed the Old Bailey, killing one and injuring almost 200.

Kelly, now a senior Sinn Fein politician, also led the 1983 breakout of IRA inmates from the Maze prison, during which he shot a prison officer in the head.

As has been widely reported, Mr McDonnell also honoured IRA terrorists, though in his case only after the ceasefire.

  In his apology for the remarks last month, Mr McDonnell claimed he only made them to promote the peace process.

In fact, however, Mr McDonnell told the IRA’s official newspaper that he opposed the peace process negotiations to create a power-sharing assembly in what became the Good Friday Agreement.

He said: “An assembly is not what people have laid down their lives for over thirty years…the settlement must be for a united Ireland.”

The disclosures are made after research by the Telegraph in archives in London, Oxford and Belfast.

They come after the Prime Minister, David Cameron, attacked Mr Corbyn last week as “terrorist-sympathising” and “Britain-hating.”

The new revelations were greeted with shock and disgust by victims and opponents of the IRA.

Lord Tebbit, whose wife, Margaret, was permanently crippled by the Brighton bomb, said: "It’s hard to think how Corbyn could sink any lower. It’s the classic definition of the snake’s belly. He betrays his hatred of democracy and his love of violence, which survives to this day.”

Nigel Dodds, the Democratic Unionist MP for North Belfast, said: “Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell speak about honest politics and straight talking, but they should stop trying to pretend and tell lies that they were pro-peace. They were pro-terrorism. They were enemies of the peace process. They had a clear choice between the IRA and peaceful nationalism and they chose the IRA.”

Between 1986 and 1992, Mr Corbyn attended and spoke each year at the annual “Connolly/Sands” commemoration in London to honour dead IRA terrorists and support imprisoned IRA “prisoners of war.”

Programmes for the events have been obtained by the Telegraph.

The programme for the 1987 event, on May 16 of that year, praises the “soldiers of the IRA,” saying: “We are proud of our people and the revolutionaries who are an integral part of that people.”

The programme for the 1988 event, on May 8 of that year, states that “in this, the conclusive phase in the war to rid Ireland of the scourge of British imperialism… force of arms is the only method capable of bringing this about.”

The event took place the day after the funerals of the service personnel killed by the IRA in the Netherlands.

Each programme includes a list of IRA “prisoners of war” who are to be honoured that year, including the Brighton bomber, Patrick Magee, and sectarian murderers.

The lists include their prisons and birthdays, with IRA supporters in the UK encouraged to send them birthday cards in jail.

Mr Corbyn typically spoke alongside senior figures from Sinn Fein, including Gerry Adams at the 1991 event, at which he attacked “British imperialism” and praised Bobby Sands, the IRA terrorist who died on hunger-strike.

The events were organised by the Wolfe Tone Society, which describes itself in the programmes as an “Irish republican support group based in London. Its work consists of helping republican prisoners’ relatives and promoting the policies and publications of Sinn Fein.”

Mr Corbyn and Mr McDonnell “work closely” with the Wolfe Tone Society, according to its convenor, Dennis Grace, speaking at the 2006 event.

It was at the Wolfe Tone Society’s 2003 commemoration that Mr McDonnell made his now notorious comments calling for Sands and other terrorists to be “honoured,” adding: “It was the bombs and bullets and sacrifice made by the likes of Bobby Sands that brought Britain to the negotiating table.”

In his apology last month for the remarks, Mr McDonnell claimed that he made them to promote the peace process, saying: “I went out and argued for the peace process and I made this speech to a group of republicans because one of the problems we had is that if there was a feeling that they were defeated or humiliated they would not stand down.”


In fact, however, the Telegraph can disclose, Mr McDonnell initially opposed the peace process. In January 1998, during the negotiations for a new power-sharing assembly which three months later became the Good Friday agreement, he told the IRA’s official newspaper, An Phoblacht: “An assembly is not what people have laid down their lives for over thirty years. We want peace, but the settlement must be just and the settlement must be for an agreed and united Ireland.”

He changed his position when the IRA accepted the accord and supported the agreement, though he continued to attack the British government for their “failure of nerve in dealing with unionism.”

Mr Corbyn was also active in the Labour Committee on Ireland, another explicitly pro-republican pressure group, speaking at its Labour conference fringe meetings and signing LCI’s statement of objectives in 1984.

LCI regarded Northern Ireland as a colony and the Loyalist majority as a construct which should be ignored. It campaigned vitriolically against the peaceful, constitutional nationalist party, the SDLP, whose supporters it described as “cannon-fodder…manipulated and directed by a sophisticated management caucus.”



Much of the autumn 1985 edition of the LCI journal, Labour and Ireland, is devoted to a six-page personal attack on John Hume, the then SDLP leader, Nobel Peace Prize winner and key architect of the peace process.

The journal described him as “dogmatic,” “insecure,” and suffering from a “deeply-rooted need for adulation and recognition as an international statesman.”

Diane Abbott, the new shadow international development secretary, was also a strong supporter of LCI.

In a 1984 interview with Labour and Ireland, she attacked the Unionist population of Northern Ireland as an “enclave of white supremacist ideology” comparable to white settlers in Zimbabwe.

Mr Corbyn also strongly opposed a precursor to the peace process, the Anglo-Irish Agreement. He said on two occasions that the agreement “strengthens rather than weakens the border between the six and the 26 counties, and those of us who wish to see a united Ireland oppose the agreement for that reason.”

However, it is the explicit support for the Brighton bombing in London Labour Briefing magazine that may prove the most controversial.

• Cheer up, Jeremy Corbyn – David Cameron’s attacks on you could have been a lot worse

• Jeremy Corbyn repeatedly refuses to confirm he will kneel before the Queen

In its December 1984 leader, the editorial board “disassociated itself” from an article the previous month criticising the bombing, saying the criticism was a “serious political misjudgment.”

The board said it “reaffirmed its support for, and solidarity with, the Irish republican movement” and added that “the British only sit up and take notice [of Ireland] when they are bombed into it.”

Alongside its editorial, the board reprinted a speech by Gerry Adams describing the bombing as a "blow for democracy" and the "inevitable result of the British presence in [Ireland]."

Briefing earlier stated: “We refuse to parrot the ritual condemnation of ‘violence’ because we insist on placing responsibility where it lies…. Let our ‘Iron Lady’ know this: those who live by the sword shall die by it. If she wants violence, then violence she will certainly get.”

According to the authoritative reference work, Parliamentary Profiles, by the late Andrew Roth, Mr Corbyn was general secretary of the editorial board at the time. Other reference material describes him as a member of the board. Mr Corbyn ran Briefing’s mailing list and supporters’ register, according to an advert in the March 1983 issue.

He usually chaired its fringe meetings at Labour conferences and other events and was a keynote speaker at its annual general meeting in July 1985, after the Brighton articles appeared.

In a telephone interview during the recent leadership campaign, Mr Corbyn was repeatedly asked by a BBC interviewer whether he condemned the murders by the IRA.

He five times refused to answer the question directly, saying: “I condemn what was done by the British Army as well as the other sides” before the line went dead.

Mr Corbyn and Mr McDonnell did not respond to requests for comment.

Jeremy Corbyn has lit a fire of Jew-hate that is now beyond his control
4 Oct 2018 by Dave Rich
https://cst.org.uk/news/blog/2018/10/04/jeremy-corbyn-has-lit-a-fire-of-jew-hate-that-is-now-beyond-his-control?fbclid=IwAR21Y0mkImeBK1vy4OEKg3d7QGg2GAECSKBxD19yhv5deBUGavNYg8ERX1M

This article, by CST's Deputy Director of Communications, Dr Dave Rich, originally appeared in the Jewish Chronicle on 3 October 2018:

A little over three years ago, shortly before Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the Labour Party, this newspaper set out seven questions for him to answer regarding people and organisations who he had supported, assisted or spoken alongside. It was a gruesome list of terrorists, Holocaust deniers and antisemites, and it was vital and urgent for Mr Corbyn to answer these questions satisfactorily, the JCurged, lest he “be regarded from the day of his election as an enemy of Britain’s Jewish community”.

Nevertheless, cautioned the writer of that editorial, “there is no direct evidence that he has an issue himself with Jews”. This was a question of who Mr Corbyn associates with and the causes he promotes, rather than his own personal attitudes or prejudices.

Three years on, that initial warning seems prescient; but the benefit of the doubt extended to Mr Corbyn personally has long run out. This is one reason why the new edition of my book, The Left’s Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Antisemitism, published last week, has a more pessimistic outlook than the original version that came out in 2016.

Back then, it was possible to plot a way for a Corbyn-led Labour Party to navigate its way out of this problem. If the party leadership accepted that the antisemitism amongst its members was not just the result of random prejudice or ill-chosen language, but the product of a political mindset, then there was scope for the change that was necessary to turn around what was already a mounting problem.

If people at all levels in Mr Corbyn’s party, from the leadership to the grassroots, could take complaints of antisemitism seriously instead of dismissing them as smears designed to silence critics of Israel, then common ground could be found in understanding the particular nature of left wing antisemitism and taking steps to tackle it.

If other opinion formers on the left, including influential voices in the broader movement that propelled Corbyn to the leadership, led a process of learning and engagement with the Jewish community, and if those who attacked the community were vigorously and consistently called out for it, that might provide a platform for the party to rebuild its relationship with British Jews.

Instead, Labour has zigzagged from one false step to another, like a pinball bouncing its way towards the hole marked “Game Over”. From Oxford University Labour Club, to the supressed Royall Report, the Chakrabarti whitewash, the failure — twice! — to expel Ken Livingstone, the chronic failings of its disciplinary processes, and political interference at the highest levels to avoid taking action. Throughout all of this, we witnessed a constant stream of antisemitic statements, posts, tweets and comments from Labour Party members, councillors, activists and officials, past and present, all the while dismissed by Mr Corbyn’s most loyal supporters on social media and in party meetings as smears and lies invented by a coalition of Zionists, Tories and Blairites to keep Britain from reaching its socialist utopia.

Then there is Mr Corbyn’s own contribution to this sorry tale: his support for the antisemitic mural, his affection for the “brothers” of Hamas, his conspiracy theory about “the hand of Israel” being behind jihadist terrorism in Egypt, his backing for a campaign to rename Holocaust Memorial Day, his wreath-laying, his excuses and evasions and, most damning of all, his haughty, knowing comment that “Zionists” do not understand English irony, even if they — we — have lived in this country all our lives.

Two years ago, most opinion columns about antisemitism in the Labour Party stressed that nobody accused Mr Corbyn himself of being antisemitic; his flaw was that he just did not recognise it, he did not think left-wing people were capable of it, or he had not taken the necessary action to deal with it.

There are not many columnists saying that now. Mr Corbyn may or may not be an antisemite, but he has certainly said and done some things that can reasonably be described as antisemitic.

The other thing that has changed in the two years between the first and second editions of my book is that an antisemitic political culture has taken root in the grassroots of the left-wing movement on which Mr Corbyn’s project depends.

This culture can be found in the Facebook groups that bear Mr Corbyn’s name and the alt-left, new media blogs that count as news sources for his more devoted supporters. Some of these Facebook groups have tens of thousands of members, and websites like The Canary, Novara Media and Skwawkbox have a direct line to the party leadership and are more trusted by Mr Corbyn’s supporters than most national newspapers.

This does not mean that every Corbyn supporter, every member of these Facebook groups, or every writer for these websites, is antisemitic. Far from it. Most, like the rest of the country, are not interested in Jews, Israel or antisemitism. But whenever those subjects are discussed in these forums, the dominant view is that Israel is an apartheid or Nazi state, Zionists are deceitful, manipulative racists, and anyone who complains about antisemitism in Labour is, frankly, a liar and a political enemy.

Add in Twitter and certain Facebook groups with their regular conspiracy theories about the Rothschilds, claims that Israel is behind Isis terrorism and even the occasional Holocaust-denying post, and you have an antisemitic political culture that has nothing to do with ordinary criticism of Israeli policies.

Back in March, when the Jewish community demonstrated outside Parliament to protest about Labour antisemitism, Mr Corbyn accepted for the first time that this was a significant problem. The left has its own forms of antisemitism, he wrote, that should not be “dismissed as simply a matter of a few bad apples”. Momentum, the activist movement that organises Mr Corbyn’s foot soldiers, agreed. “Accusations of antisemitism,” they said, “should not and cannot be dismissed simply as right-wing smears nor as the result of conspiracies.”

But their followers were not listening.

Some Labour MPs who attended the community demonstration were abused on social media and threatened with deselection.

The Facebook pages of The Canary and Skwawkbox filled up with comments about “More ridiculous, vile and false antisemitism smears”, “Wealthy Jewish [sic] prepared to slander Corbyn”, “This is about the illuminati/world bankers/Rothschild’s [sic] who happen to majority Jewish [sic] and happens to be true of what is happening to our planet”, “Zionists run the BBC”, “This is what happen’s [sic] when Zionist Jews control our government!”, and so on.

Some in the leadership of the Labour Party and Momentum now understand that they have lost control of what their supporters think about Jews and “Zionists”. The worry is that it is too late.

One consequence is that Jewish Labour members increasingly find their local party meetings intolerable. An obsession with Israel, expressed in the most extreme, hateful terms, and the assumption that any talk of antisemitism is an anti-Corbyn trick, has persuaded many that it is time to leave.

It is hard to avoid the conclusion that Labour is now institutionally antisemitic. This is an alarming situation for all British Jews, whether they support Labour or not. But for Labour, the party that once enjoyed the support of the vast majority of British Jews, and which prides itself on its anti-racism, it is nothing short of a disgrace.

Diane Abbott to stand in for Jeremy Corbyn at PMQs

Diane Abbott is standing in for Jeremy Corbyn at Prime Minister's Questions at mid-day.

The shadow home secretary will be the first black MP to represent her party at the weekly Commons clash.

She will face Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is standing in for Boris Johnson for the first time.

The PM is missing PMQs to deliver his keynote address to the Conservative conference in Manchester.

Ms Abbott said she was "looking forward to leading Prime Minister's Questions" for Labour.

The Commons is normally in recess during the party conferences but MPs voted to keep sitting amid controversy over Mr Johnson's unlawful prorogation of Parliament.

Traditionally, the leader of the opposition can ask six questions, however if the prime minister is unable to attend, both they and their counterpart are replaced by a senior frontbencher.

Among the backbench MPs also listed to put a question to Mr Raab on Wednesday are Labour MPs Teresa Pearce and Lucy Powell, as well as veteran Tory Eurosceptic Peter Bone.

Ex-minister Margot James, one of 21 rebels expelled from the Tory parliamentary party after rebelling against Boris Johnson in a bid to prevent a no-deal Brexit, is also down to ask a question.

Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry and shadow business secretary Rebecca Long Bailey have previously stood in for Mr Corbyn.

In 2015 then-shadow business secretary Angela Eagle also replaced Mr Corbyn at PMQs.

Ms Abbott is a key ally of the Labour leader and has served in his shadow cabinet since 2016.

Making the announcement on Tuesday, Mr Corbyn tweeted: "This #BlackHistoryMonth we're inspired by the struggles of black campaigners, including the first black MPs elected in 1987.

"Tomorrow one of those pioneering MPs, a child of the Windrush Generation, Diane Abbott, will be the first black person to represent their party at #PMQs."

UK Labor leader says Israel & Jews are the source of global terrorism, not Islam
http://www.free-speechfront.info/2019/01/uk-labor-leader-says-israel-jews-are.html?fbclid=IwAR2LGE72OwtJRpGnVUjbEwu6_buvllVrSQ34YxWV7tmd-_EdTAOQW-hvA78

In an interview with an Iranian state television, the leader of the Labor Party in Britain said Israel is behind Islamic terror attacks and global terrorism in order to destabilize the Middle East. He defended ISIS and Islam and described Israel and the Jews as the main source of global terrorism.
Here's what the media does not tell you about the leader of the British Labor Party:
Jeremy Corbyn met with Terrorists of Hamas and Hezbollah and even called them "friends".
Hamas and Hezbollah are Islamic terrorist organizations, with an antisemitic ideology, an arsenal of missiles pointing at Israel, a history of terror attacks on Jewish targets in the West, and links to organised crime.
The leaders of this terrorist organizations repeatedly called for genocide of all Jews.
Please watch and share this video if you think Jeremy Corbyn should resign.

UK Labour Party Doubles Down on Anti-Israel Bias
Sep 25, 2019

UK Labour Party

The UK Labour Party’s annual conference on foreign policy included a long list of anti-Israel proposals.

By United With Israel Staff

On Monday, at Britain’s Labour Party’s annual conference in Brighton, speakers called for a future government to adopt blatantly anti-Israel policies. Members of the Labour Party, lead by Jeremy Corbyn, have become notorious for anti-Semitic statements and virulently anti-Israel stances.

The gathering was laced with Palestinian flags, “Free Palestine” chants and overwhelming support for boycotts of Israeli products from Judea and Samaria. Additionally, there were calls to reject trade agreements with Israel, to halt the sale of British arms to the Jewish country, and to endorse the so-called Palestinian “right to return,” which seeks to flood Israel with the descendants of Arabs who voluntarily left or were expelled from territory that became the Jewish state.

According to a poll released on Sunday, two-thirds of Labour members do not believe the party has a “serious” problem with anti-Semitism, while more than half oppose the UK signing a trade agreement with Israel after Britain leaves the European Union.

Yet, polls show that the overwhelming majority of British Jews view Corbyn as an anti-Semite. So much so, that in July, Labour launched an educational website on anti-Semitism, along with an apology video from Corbyn admitting that his party had “a real problem with anti-Semitism.” In the video, Corbyn apologized for the “hurt that has been caused to many Jewish people” and admitted that his party’s reaction to combating anti-Semitism was too slow.
Following the conference, strong reactions from pro-Israel groups spread across the internet.

Director of Labour Friends of Israel Jennifer Gerber tweeted, “Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is the home for anti-Jewish racists and Israel haters….This is another dark day in the history of the Labour Party.”
Gerber added, “It’s no wonder the Jewish community fears the prospect of him becoming prime minister.”

Director of We Believe In Israel and a former member of Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC), Luke Akehurst noted that this is the second consecutive year in which Labour’s conference has debated Israel. “This cannot be unlinked to the pathological obsession with Israel and Jews which has driven the party’s anti-Semitism crisis,” he said according to the Times of Israel.
 
Since 2015, when Corbyn took charge of the Labour Party, it has suffered from claims that the party is anti-Semitic, leading to the suspension or expulsion of multiple members and officials. The UK’s Equality and Human Rights Commission has investigated the party.

General elections in the UK are expected to take place before the end of the year.

British Jews have expressed grave apprehensions about the fate of their community should Corbyn be tapped to serve as prime minister.

Corbyn angry at Netanyahu over claims “West Bank” is Israel
Sep 13, 2019 | News
https://www.cufi.org.uk/news/corbyn-angry-at-netanyahu-over-claims-west-bank-is-israel/?fbclid=IwAR3gl0Ez1VgLb5wgcxOh3Y3e12DbEfRSvlQ5OFk1POO6rMbQYgNqasSrGXA
Corbyn angry at Netanyahu over claims “West Bank” is Israel
Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour party, has triggered a Twitter storm after reacting to comments by Benjamin Netanyahu that he would annex the Jordan Valley in the so-called West Bank.

Battling to win reelection on September 17, Netanyahu issued the pledge on Tuesday night, drawing firm condemnation from the Palestinians, Arab states, the United Nations and the European Union. He also repeated his intention to annex Israeli settlements in the wider West Bank, but in coordination with US President Donald Trump.

But the Labour leader was quick to condemn Netanyahu over his election pledge,with Jeremy Corbyn saying it would be illegal.

The pledge followed comments made by the Israeli PM earlier in the month that he would extend Israeli sovereignty to all settlements in Judea and Samaria.

He told a group of school children on the election campaign trail that  no more settlements will be evacuated, as happened in 2005 when the entire Israeli civilian presence in the Gaza Strip — known collectively as Gush Katif — was removed.

“There will be no more Gush Katif, there will be no more displacements, and with the help of God we will apply Jewish sovereignty to all communities, as part of the Land of Israel, and as part of the State of Israel,” Netanyahu said. A Likud spokesperson later clarified that the prime minister was referring to Jewish communities in the so-called West Bank.

@jeremycorbyn
Netanyahu can’t just decide to make a third of the West Bank part of Israel.

It would be an illegal act, deny the Palestinian people the right to self-determination and be a dangerous threat to the chance of peace and security for both peoples.

MI5 opened a file on Jeremy Corbyn amid concerns over his links to the IRA, The Telegraph has discovered.

The Labour leader was investigated over fears that he could have been a threat to national security at a time when he was supporting convicted terrorists and campaigning for a unified Ireland.

The revelations come as a Telegraph investigation reveals Mr Corbyn’s full links to the IRA, including his support for one of the Balcombe Street gang who waged a 14-month bombing campaign across south-east England, and his links to the bomb maker believed to have been behind the Hyde Park and Regent's Park devices.

Mr Corbyn also shared a platform with a wanted IRA killer and John McDonnell, his shadow Chancellor, claimed that the pair of them used to “pin people against the wall” in the House of Commons to lobby them on behalf of Ireland.

It was against the background of his support for the Republican cause that MI5 began looking into Mr Corbyn’s activities, and a source close to the investigation confirmed that a file had been opened on him by the early Nineties.

The source told The Telegraph: "If there was a file on someone, it meant they had come to notice.  We opened a temporary file and did a preliminary investigation.  It was then decided whether we should open a permanent file on them".

A file would be opened on "someone who sympathises with a certain group, or is friends with a specific person" and the purpose was to “assess whether the person was a threat", the source added.

The Metropolitan Police Special Branch was also monitoring the future Labour leader at around the same time, but it is unclear if the intelligence was shared.

Peter Francis, the undercover officer turned whistle-blower, has revealed that the force secretly compiled files on Mr Corbyn and nine other MPs which detailed their political beliefs, personal background and any demonstrations that they attended.

He was personally asked to collect information on the Islington North MP as he infiltrated anti-racist groups in the Nineties, he said.

The Conservative peer Lord Tebbit said: “I think it just marks him out as what he clearly is: a hard-Left, Marxist, terrorist sympathiser. It leaves him very comfortable in the company of McDonnell, who, as we know, said that they will gain power not through Parliament but on the streets and the picket lines.”

The former Tory Party chairman, whose wife Margaret was left permanently disabled by the 1984 bombing of  Brighton's Grand Hotel, added: “It’s a comfort to know that they were indeed being monitored, although clearly they stayed just on the right side, for them, of being charged with any offences. It just makes me feel that Mrs May is being perhaps unnecessarily indulgent towards the Labour Party in order to win this election.”

It has also been claimed that the London Labour Briefing, a magazine which Mr Corbyn sat on the board of and frequently contributed to along with Mr McDonnell and Diane Abbott, was being monitored by the security services.

One reader, purporting to be an MI5 worker, wrote to the magazine on its 25th anniversary claiming that it had been their job for 25 years to monitor the publication.

Mr Corbyn has been questioned over his links to republicans and during his leadership campaign he refused five times during a BBC interview to condemn IRA murders.

A spokesman for Mr Corbyn said: "MI5 kept files on many peace and Labour movement campaigners at the time, including anti-Apartheid activists and trade unionists". 

The Balcombe Street Gang and Corbyn's long association with the IRA
It was one of the IRA’s most notorious units whose bloody bombing campaign was only brought to an end during a five-day siege that was broadcast live on television and was watched by millions.

But until now it was not known that a member of the Balcombe Street Gang found support from Jeremy Corbyn, who campaigned on his behalf as he was serving 11 life sentences for his part in the killing of 16 people.

The revelation is part of a series of links between the Labour leader and the IRA during a long association uncovered by a Telegraph investigation.

At the height of the Troubles, Mr Corbyn was a regular face at republican protest events and attended events to honour dead terrorists, it can be revealed.

On one such occasion it was reported in An Phoblacht, a monthly newspaper published by Sinn Fein, that he shared a platform with an IRA volunteer who was wanted over the killing of an SAS soldier and whose extradition had been requested by the British Government. 

At another event commemorating Bloody Sunday, shadow Chancellor John McDonnell is recorded in a republican newspaper as bragging to crowds that in the Lobby of the Commons he and Mr Corbyn had “pinned people up against the wall and said ‘do you know what has happened in Ireland in your name?’”.

Perhaps the revelation which will raise most questions over his judgement is his support for Hugh Doherty, a member of the Balcombe Street gang who at the time was serving 11 life sentences.

As well as attending protests, in 1987 Mr Corbyn handed a petition to then-prime minister Margaret Thatcher demanding better visiting conditions for Doherty and his fellow IRA prisoner Nat Vella and “the immediate transfer of Irish political prisoners to prisons near their homes”.

The Balcombe Street gang, who were named after the London street on which they were arrested after a five-day siege, were responsible for 16 murders. During a 14-month campaign of terror across the south-east of England they carried out 50 bombings and shootings, including gunning down the television personality and co-founder of Guinness World Records, Ross McWhirter, after he offered a £50,000 reward for information that would lead to their capture. They were released in 1999 as part of the Good Friday agreement.

Addressing rally with IRA murder suspect
Archives from Troops Out, a London-based republican organisation backed by Mr Corbyn, show him supporting the cause of Dessie Ellis, who was sentenced to 10 years on explosives charges in the Eighties.

Ellis, whose family Mr Corbyn spoke alongside, was convicted of possessing bomb power-time units for bombs, including those suspected of being used for the Hyde Park and Regent’s Park attacks.

It can also be revealed that he toured Ireland in the 1990s addressing rallies calling for withdrawal of the British.

An Phoblacht reported that at a Dublin rally he stood alongside Angelo Fusco - a wanted IRA man who was on the run after escaping during his trial for shooting dead an SAS officer – and claimed that the partition was the “greatest miscarriage of justice in the history of relations between Britain and Ireland."

At the time Corbyn was speaking alongside him in 1994, the British Government were demanding Fusco’s extradition from the Irish Republic.

Inviting republicans into Commons after Brighton bomb
His efforts to support republicans did not go unnoticed, and archives show that he left fellow MPs and members of his own party “appalled” at his decisions to invite Irish republicans into the Houses of Parliament soon after the Brighton bombing.

He was visited in the Commons by close personal friend Gerard McLochlainn, the former "voice of Sinn Fein in London", who had recently been released from prison for conspiracy to detonate explosives, and Linda Quigley, who had also recently completed a prison sentence for IRA-related offences.

The pair attended just weeks after Mrs Thatcher was targeted in the Brighton bombing, which killed five, including a Conservative MP.

Though he was unrepentant, the archives of An Phoblacht reveal that his actions saw him called before chief whip Michael Cocks, who accused him of being “deeply insensitive” and later said that he was “appalled” at his actions.

In the wake of the bombing a leader article in the London Labour Briefing, the hard-Left magazine on which Mr Corbyn was general secretary of the editorial board, “reaffirmed its support for, and solidarity with, the Irish Republican movement.”

It added: “Let our ‘Iron Lady’ know this: those who live by the sword shall die by it. If she wants violence, then violence she will certainly get.”

Paying tribute to IRA gunmen
Mr Corbyn risked offending victims of the violence again in 1987 when he paid tribute to eight IRA gunmen who were shot dead in an SAS ambush, telling a meeting of the Wolfe Tone Society: "I'm happy to commemorate all those who died fighting for an independent Ireland." 

Despite the criticism often levelled at him, Mr Corbyn remained steadfast in his support for Irish unity throughout his backbench career. Once, while on picket outside the Westminster Office of Jim Prior in 1983, he justified his links claiming that the “large Irish population elected me with a clear Troops Out ticket”.


Show more
Such was his support he was arrested in 1986 for joining a protest outside the Old Bailey to “show solidarity” with terrorists including the Patrick Magee, who was later convicted of the Brighton bombing.

His actions also caused concern to the Royal Ulster Constabulary, who stopped and questioned him five times in one day during a 1999 visit, with Mr Corbyn later complaining to then IRA linked paper An Phoblacht: “On each occasion it has been very clear to me the police officers who've stopped me know exactly who I am and exactly why I am here.”

Refusing to condemn IRA murders
Supporters of Mr Corbyn have said his relationship with Republicans should be seen in the context of the peace talks that followed, with Chris Mullin, the former Home Office minister, describing him as “ahead of his time”.

Since he has taken over the leadership of the Labour Party Mr Corbyn has been much quieter on issues of unity in Ireland, but his past actions have continued to plague him.

In a telephone interview with the BBC during his leadership campaign he refused five times to condemn the murders by the IRA. Before the line went dead, he said: “I condemn what was done by the British Army as well as the other sides”. 

A spokesman for Mr Corbyn said "Jeremy campaigned for peace in Northern Ireland. To do so, he campaigned for the rights of all to be respected and spoke to people on all sides of the conflict.

"Jeremy campaigned for fair trials and against miscarriages of justice, after a series of well publicised cases, such as the Guildford Four and the Birmingham Six."

The spokesman added: "John and Jeremy do not pin people to walls. This is clearly figurative language".

EXPOSED: Links Between Top Corbyn Aide and Anti-Israel Terror Groups
Seumas Milne, Labour’s head of strategy and communications, is considered so influential that he has been referred to as “Corbyn’s brain.” 
By Benjamin Kerstein, The Algemeiner
A top aide to controversial UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has long-standing ties to anti-Israel terrorist groups and would likely be denied a security clearance as a result, a new report has revealed.
Seumas Milne, Labour’s head of strategy and communications, is considered so influential that he has been referred to as “Corbyn’s brain,” and Corbyn, who is considered anti-Semitic by the vast majority of British Jews, reportedly relies upon him completely.

According to a weekend exposé by The Mail on Sunday, Milne’s links with terrorist groups dedicated to destroying the Jewish state are decades old. A party staff member, speaking anonymously, said, “Seumas has been supporting groups that deny Israel’s right to exist for many years.”

While he was at Oxford University in 1977, Milne traveled to Lebanon and met with PLO terrorists. According to a New Statesman profile, Milne “learned Arabic, heard shots fired in anger, escaped from a blown-up building, and was briefly captured by militiamen.”

Palestinian activist Hussein Agha, who has known Milne for years, related that the political adviser “went to Lebanon, Syria, and the West Bank — a young boy on a Leftist grand tour. He adopted a Palestinian accent. He used to speak English with Arabs the way they spoke to him.”

He added that Milne met with Fatah members while the group still openly called for Israel’s destruction and the ethnic cleansing of its Jewish population. “I met him when he came back,” he told The Mail. “He was not anti-Semitic, but he was very, very anti-Israel.”

Call for Palestinians to “Escalate Armed Resistance’
Returning to Oxford, Milne co-founded the Oxford Palestine Campaign, an extremist anti-Israel group. The organization disseminated PLO propaganda and aggressively denounced the 1978 peace treaty between Israel and Egypt, saying, “We must now expect the Palestinians to react in the only way that is left to them: to escalate their armed resistance.”

Agha, who has since been involved in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, remarked that Milne “thinks I have sold out, become too soft. He is a purist.”

According to the Mail report, Milne eventually developed links with Hamas and took Corbyn to the Middle East to meet with leaders of the Islamist terror group, which still openly states that its goal is Israel’s destruction.

In 2009, Milne stated, “The idea that Israel is a racist state is largely uncontroversial” and charged that Israel was “built on ethnic cleansing.”

In response to the Mail report, a Labour source said: “Seumas Milne does not endorse the Hamas charter. He has criticised it.” The source added, “Seumas has never advocated violence. The right to resist illegal occupation is enshrined in international law.”

‘Corbyn Trusts Milne More Than Anyone’
On the overlap between Milne’s and Corbyn’s views, one Member of Parliament noted anonymously, “Without a shadow of a doubt, Corbyn trusts Milne more than anyone. I actually think Corbyn is a little bit thick. It’s no exaggeration to say that Milne is Corbyn’s brain.”

Milne has apparently been heavily involved in Labour efforts to deal with accusations of anti-Semitism against Corbyn and the party. “Again and again, MPs have asked to see Corbyn to talk about anti-Semitism, and when they got to his room, they found themselves talking to Milne,” the MP said.

In addition to Israel-related issues, The Mail said Milne had defended Russia’s invasions of Afghanistan and Ukraine and said an IRA attempt in 1984 to assassinate then-prime minister Margaret Thatcher was a “very daring attack.” After 9/11, he wrote that Americans do not understand that they are “hated with such bitterness” because of their “unabashed national egotism and arrogance.” He has also defended the theocratic Iranian regime, which calls for the destruction of Israel, and called protesters against it “Tehran’s gilded youth.”

Sir Richard Dearlove, former head of British intelligence agency MI6, said that as a result of Milne’s history, it would be impossible for him to pass the required security checks to see classified information if Corbyn becomes prime minister.

“Anyone with his sort of background could not be let anywhere near classified information. It would be out of the question,” said Dearlove.

‘Beyond the Pale’
“I am alarmed enough by Corbyn’s past associations, but Milne’s put him beyond the pale. That means Corbyn could not make the judgments and decisions a PM has to make unless he stopped consulting him,” he explained.

“There would be a recommendation made by the head of MI5, who would have to see the PM and say, ‘This man cannot be allowed to see any classified information.’ Either Corbyn would have to cut contact with him — or the head of MI5 would have to threaten to resign, and do it if he still refused. It would blow up into a major constitutional issue, and it would be huge,” Dearlove added.
