Corbyn famously described Hamas and Hezbollah — two internationally condemned terrorist groups of a theocratic nature — as his “friends.” The assassination of Osama bin Laden at the hands of American special forces to him was a “tragedy.” He hosted in parliament Palestinian hate preacher Raed Salah and shared a stage with Dyab Abou Jajah, a Lebanese activist who said Europe had made “the cult of the Holocaust and Jew-worshiping its alternative religion.” Moreover, Corbyn donated money to an anti-Israel group led by a Holocaust denier and laid a wreath on the grave of a PLO terrorist involved in the 1972 Munich massacre of Israeli athletes.
This week it emerged that he had attended a highly controversial anti-Israel rally at Trafalgar Square in May 2002 that included members of radical Islamist groups al-Muhajiroun and Hezbollah. According to reports, men of al-Muhajiroun were dressed as mock suicide bombers and held placards reading “Palestine is Muslim.” They chanted “Skud, skud, Israel” and “Gas, gas Tel Aviv,” along their support for al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
Al-Muhajiroun is a banned terrorist organization which was led by high-profile Salafi militant Omar Bakri Muhammad and Anjem Choudary, a notorious British hate preacher and Islamic State recruiter, at the center of an international network of Islamic extremists. Their members have been linked to the 7/7 London bombings, the beheading of British soldier Lee Rigby, and the recent terrorist attack at London Bridge and Borough Market.
This is the company he keeps and Corbyn, in his own words, has been “involved in opposing anti-terror legislation ever since 1983.”...That's a track record that should--but, alas, won't--give every UK voter pause.
