An investigation by the Daily Mail has found evidence suggesting that Jeremy Corbyn laid a wreath and participated in a prayer at the graves of the Black September terrorists responsible for brutalising and massacring Israeli olympians, who included Holocaust survivors, at the 1972 Munich Olympics, even castrating one of their corpses. The events in Munich were utterly horrific and in the wake of the attack, Israel embarked on a programme of assassinations of the perpetrators, intended to deter future attacks on Jews by Palestinian terrorists.
Having previously written about his attendance at the 2014 wreath-laying event, Mr Corbyn claimed to have been at the graves of different Palestinian terrorists, but the Daily Mail uncovered photographs of Mr Corbyn and sent a journalist to the cemetery, who discovered that he had been standing by a plaque at the graves of the Black September members.
In the past two weeks, we have continued to learn of Mr Corbyn’s track record of distorting Holocaust Memorial Day, spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories and even calling a bloodthirsty terrorist his brother. Now this has emerged.
Mr Corbyn previously gave assurance that he was not honouring terrorists who sought out Jews for murder, but it now appears that he was laying a wreath at their graves. A responsible politician would not have gone anywhere near that ceremony, but Mr Corbyn is not a responsible politician.
Given Mr Corbyn’s history of defending, honouring and befriending antisemites, including genocidal antisemitic terrorists, this latest revelation adds to the deeply disturbing evidence that the Leader of the Opposition is a longstanding ally of those who wish Jews great harm.
