Jeremy Corbyn has insisted in an interview that he was not involved in laying a wreath honouring the Black September terrorists who brutalised and massacred Jewish Olympians at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
When asked if he was involved in laying the wreath, his eye shifting rapidly, he said: “I was present at the wreath laying but I don’t think I was actually involved in it.”
However his lie was quickly undone when Sky News’ Political Correspondent, Tamara Cohen, tweeted a video of an interview in which Mr Corbyn said last year that he did lay a wreath. Additionally, at the time, he wrote an article for The Morning Star, in which he reported: “After wreaths were laid at the graves of those who died on that day and on the graves of others killed by Mossad agents in Paris in 1991, we moved to the poignant statue in the main avenue of the coastal town of Ben Arous, which was festooned with Palestinian and Tunisian flags.” Those killed by Mossad agents in Paris in 1991 were Black September terrorists.
Mr Corbyn’s lie was compounded by a further lie. Having previously claimed that he was in Tunisia “to find peace”, The Daily Mail revealed that he was in fact at a conference where a senior official from Hamas, the genocidal antisemitic terrorist organisation, outlined the group’s strategy for violent attacks, which it called “magnificent”.
The conference also heard from Othman Jerandi, a former Tunisian foreign minister, who appeared to support the conspiracy theory that ISIS is in fact an Israeli conspiracy, saying: “ISIS and Israel are the same thing”.
Over the past few weeks, Campaign Against Antisemitism has commented on countless revelations about Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. The country has read and heard about antisemitism in private and public Labour Party meetings, blogs, tweets and Facebook comments. We have seen evidence of Mr Corbyn honouring terrorists and abusing Holocaust Memorial Day. Over the same period he has released a hypocritical and insincere apology, and several statements deflecting the blame onto others.
At this point the weight of the facts should speak loudly enough for themselves. His brazen lies about honouring the brutal antisemitic terrorists behind the Munich massacre show that he is not a decent man. Jeremy Corbyn is a liar, a defender of terrorists, and an antisemite. Under his leadership the Labour party presents an existential threat to the British Jewish community, not least because he so clearly supports those who brutalise and murder Jews. The fact that he remains the Leader of the Opposition shows how rotten the Labour Party itself has become.
