Even if the right is elected, the left still dominates because of the supreme court

Kenneth Levin explained in Israel HaYom why the Israeli left is still dominant in force:
The potential for prosecutorial abuse over these years has largely derived from the fact that Israel’s Supreme Court has for several decades been ideologically biased and at the same time uniquely activist and political compared to similar courts in other Western democracies.

Its political partisanship and discrimination have long been recognized by much of the public and have translated into significant public distrust. In a poll conducted by the Maagar Mohot Institute and published November 11, 2011, only 14% of respondents believed the Supreme Court represented all elements of the nation while 51% believed it did not. By 54% to 46%, those polled viewed the court as politically slanted. Of the 54% who declared the court politically biased, by 75% to 11% they saw it as slanted in favor of the Left.

The Supreme Court’s ideological bias has been rendered much more consequential by its activism. The court has assigned to itself the right to pass judgment on and veto acts of the elected legislature. It claims the right to do so in the context of its supposed role as enforcer of the precepts of the Constitution. But Israel, of course, has no constitution. It has basic laws, and the Supreme Court has allowed itself the greatest possible latitude in interpreting Basic Laws in a manner that supports its power grabs. One consequence of the court’s activism is its encouragement of expanded prosecutorial authority.

Both the ideological bias of the court and its assumption of such transcendent powers were codified by Aharon Barak during his years at the helm of the Supreme Court (1995-2006), and they have remained essentially intact since then.

An earlier Supreme Court president, Moshe Landau, said of Barak’s arrogating to the court such power, “I think [he] has not, and does not, accept the rightful place that the court should have among the various authorities in our regime.” Landau saw Barak striving “to interject [into all areas of Israeli life] certain moral values as he deems appropriate. And this amounts to a kind of judicial dictatorship that I find completely inappropriate.”

There is yet another key contributing factor to the patterns of anti-democratic authoritarianism and political bias in the judicial and broader legal system: Israel’s judicial appointments committee.
Read it in full. This is something that's got to be changed in coming years, and hopefully, by the end of the month, a government will be formed that can deal with the issue.

New Jersey man arrested for lending support to Hamas

A possible Muslim convert in New Jersey was arrested for making threats against a pro-Israeli rally and supporting Hamas:
A New Jersey man who threatened to shoot everyone at a pro-Israel rally and said he wanted to “bomb Trump Tower,” was arrested Wednesday on charges of trying to provide support to Hamas.

Jonathan Xie, 20, of Basking Ridge, allegedly had social media accounts loaded with terror propaganda, according to the FBI. The agency said he had also declared support for Syrian leader Bashar al Assad, former Iraq leader Saddam Hussein and North Korea.
It sounds like he's also a communist supporter. And another young man who's thrown away his future for the sake of evil. If we continue to allow this kind of indoctrination, many lives will be ruined.

Britain's capitulations to transsexual ideology come at expense of religious Jewish women

So a swimming pool business in London is the latest to enact the farce of enabling men posing as women to use what were meant to be women's only pools, and now, it's affected Jewish women too:
A women’s-only pond in North London will now be open to transgender swimmers, which will prevent Orthodox Jews from using the pond.

A group of haredi women are planning to fight the decision, the London-based Jewish Chronicle reported.

Under Jewish law, women cannot be dressed immodestly in front of men. Trans women are still considered men according to Orthodox Jewish law, which prevents the women from swimming there.
They're male by science and biology, which leftists are now rejecting. Interesting though that it's Haredi women who're going to take legal action to challenge this, since UK feminists have been unable to get the SJWs to cut out what they've been doing so far. So, will these Haredi women have success by contrast? That remains to be seen, in a city that's already going down the drain.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali understands how Islamic antisemitism works

Andrew Bostom wrote about a conference ex-Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali held at a Jewish library in Quebec, talking about Muslim antisemitism:
Speaking at the Jewish Public Library in Montreal, on May 13, 2019, Somali ex-Muslim conscientious objector to Islam, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, warned her capacity audience that the “scale and scope” of Islamic Antisemitism remains incomprehensible to most Westerners, rendering this ugly, burning hatred even more dangerous.

“Little attention is paid (to it) and that is a pity because it is the most zealous, most potent Jew hatred. It both condemns Jews wholesale and seeks to destroy the State of Israel.”

She further maintained that the majority of Muslims have not learned “to think for themselves” and are fearful of disagreeing with what Islam’s prophet Muhammad dictated. As Ayaan Hirsi Ali clearly suggested, it is the deep abiding hatred for Jews Muhammad instilled in Islam, which even present day Muslims “fear” rejecting, that animates both the global pandemic of extreme Muslim Antisemitism which hard survey data confirm, and the relentless jihad to annihilate Jewish Israel.

"Mentally ill" is not a defense for jihadism

A French psychology expert's debunked the whole excuse of declaring Islamofascists and terrorists "mentally insane" and using that to avoid giving them serious penalties:
French psychiatrist Yann Andretuan, head of the French navy’s psychological service who has practiced psychiatry in several French hospitals for more than a decade, refutes this psychiatric interpretation of Islamic terrorist attacks, regarding it as false.

“I am a psychiatrist and I do not believe that terrorism is a madness in the psychopathological sense of the term,” Andretuan writes in an article in Le Figaro, a French national newspaper.

First, Andretuan maintains that psychiatry and psychology are “saying nothing to explain this madness and to heal it,” indicating an absence of medical roots and hence the impossibility of a medical cure.

Andretuan then goes on to relate his own experiences as a psychiatrist. In his 12 years of practice in different French hospitals he states he had to restrain a patient only once and had been assaulted, also only once, by a dementia patient in his nineties.

“Psychiatric wards can be loud but rarely violent,” states the experienced psychiatrist.

The French doctor then cites a study done in the 1990s, which showed that the probability of being attacked by “an individual who had consulted a psychiatrist is ten times less than by someone who hasn’t.”

Some have argued that jihadists’ mental illness is evident in the fact that they are recruited, sometimes easily, to such a murderous cause as Islamic terrorism. Andretuan also demolishes this argument.

“Some individuals will find a cause that will give meaning to their delirium…but how many?” he asks. “It is not necessary to fear an epidemic in the psychiatric services.”

Andretuan then cites commando units the English established in the Second World War as an example of the difficulty and unsuitability of recruiting the mentally ill.

“(The English) imagined to recruit sociopaths because of their absence of resistance to killing,” he stated. “This was a failure. They thus went looking for men, educated and often products of good English society, not presenting any psychiatric troubles…”

Besides, Andretuan says, armies have always gotten rid of mentally unstable recruits, considering them too difficult to control.
Well there you have it. The guy's got a good view of the situation, proving the notion of a jihadist being literally insane is phony. One sure thing: the establishment had better not even think about going after him for debunking the whole insanity defense. If they're smart, they'll defend and respect his arguments.

Rashida Tlaib's Holocaust exploitation was abominable

The Federalist wrote about disgusting Congresswoman Tlaib's rewriting and exploiting the Holocaust narrative to suit her repellent agendas:
Tlaib was no doubt aware that a lot of folks would be offended by her false narrative: the claim that Palestinians willingly and generously sacrificed much for the express purpose of giving Jews a safe haven after the Holocaust of the 1940s. Thus, the purpose of her softly worded preface: “There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think about the Holocaust.” That’s really a shocking juxtaposition of words.

Clearly, it’s the shock effect of Tlaib’s preface that really gets our attention. It also gets her claim circulating in public discourse. That’s how an “availability cascade” is supposed to work. According to Cass Sunstein’s and Timur Kuran’s wonkish definition, an availability cascade “is a self-reinforcing process of collective belief formation by which an expressed perception triggers a chain reaction that gives the perception of increasing plausibility through its rising availability in public discourse.”
She's already proving herself one of the most loathsome people in politics. She doesn't even acknowledge the Jerusalem Mufti, Haj-Amin Husseini, was a collaborator with the nazis during WW2. Her latest antics are only making things worse, especially since the Democrats will not distance themselves from her.

The IDF is not doing any good by accomodating LGBT activists

The IDF removed the terms "mother" and "father" from their registration forms for the sake of homophiles forcing their ideology upon the majority:
After an ongoing campaign by “LGBT” organizations, the IDF has decided to make a revolutionary change and relinquish the definitions of "Mother" and "Father" in favor of "Parent 1" and "Parent 2", so as to prevent embarrassment during the stages of recruitment.

Galei Tzahal Army Radio reported that for years the army refrained from changing documentation so as not to get involved in political disagreements: In doing so now, the IDF is essentially giving official recognition to the existence of "LGBT” families.

The IDF Spokesperson stated that "The IDF updates and changes the questionnaires from time to time in accordance with the comments received and the needs that arise during the screening process."

The “Torat Lehima” group, which works to strengthen the Jewish character of the State and the IDF, said in response, "It is shocking to see how the IDF has succumbed to the progressive dictates and constructs of the LGBT organizations. Will Galei Tzahal now change its Friday program to ‘The Voice of Parent 2’? [Galei Tzahal currently runs a program called ‘The Voice of Mother.’] The IDF must stop dealing with constructs. It is inconceivable for Israeli culture to be shaped by the army without public debate - this is not its role."
Absolutely correct here, that this definitely shouldn't be going on sans public debate and comment. In addition, it's offensive if and how the government's been caving by allowing homosexual men to raise children who likely aren't the biological offspring of either one. Besides, why must the applicants be embarrassed, or not encouraged to show they have guts to handle the issues? They should definitely be supplied with the knowledge of who their biological mother and father are. A woman's group has responded to this atrocity:
The Shovrot Shivyon (Breaking Equality) women's movement on Tuesday called on the IDF "to return 'Father' and 'Mother' to the induction forms and immediately remove the categories of 'Parent 1' and 'Parent 2,' recently instituted by the IDF." [...]

According to Shovrot Shivyon, "Identity politics have penetrated the IDF. The minority is forcing its opinion on the majority who believe in the values ​​of the natural family. The IDF Spokesperson stated that the goal was to prevent embarrassment during induction stages. The silent and conservative majority was the one who felt embarrassed by such a form. Progressive values ​​are assimilated by left-extreme groups without any public discussion, with the other side being silenced and modernized."

"As women and mothers, we call on the army to return to a consensus and avoid political disagreements that shape society at the expense of our children."
A good way to deal with the problem is to start a debate on how much longer we can accept this kind of appeasement of homosexuality, along with whether we should continue to allow homosexual marriages and even child adoptions, which likely leads to indoctrination or worse. And, there should be visible protests to make clear this PC direction's not acceptable. And there also needs to be something done to combat LGBT influence in the media and other such institutions in Israel as much as anywhere else. What's been going on in the US is bad, and it's the same here too.

Malka Leifer committed check fraud, and Yaakov Litzman defended more sex offenders than thought

It turns out there's still more evidence coming out against the Haredi sex offender Malka Leifer, who appears to have committed monetary fraud, fleecing an innocent woman's funds in the process:
An ex-neighbor of accused sex abuser Malka Leifer said Sunday that the former headmistress claiming to be mentally unfit for extradition to Australia had run a scheme in which she fraudulently collected checks and stole money.

Naomi Tzubari was summoned to testify on behalf of the prosecution to demonstrate the degree of Leifer’s mental competence.

She alleged that, far from being an invalid, as the defense has claimed, Leifer both actively helped her raise money from a network of benefactors in Australia and managed to forge her signature to steal checks from her.

[...] Tzubari, who was allowed to submit testimony in writing to the Jerusalem District Court for a hearing on Sunday, told The Times of Israel that Leifer had lived above her, in an apartment in the West Bank settlement of Emmanuel, roughly a decade ago, shortly after Liefer moved back to Israel.

Tzubari said that nine years ago, Leifer approached her, upon noticing that her neighbor had been going through financial hardship.

The prosecution witness claimed that the National Insurance Institute denied granting her disability funds even though she has not been able to work, due to injuries sustained in a 1991 terror attack.

“There are people that donate money from Australia that can help you,” Tzubari recalled Leifer having told her. “Just don’t tell anyone that I gave you [this money].”

“I didn’t feel that I had any reason to distrust her so I agreed [to let her help me],” the 59-year-old ultra-Orthodox woman said.

Tzubari began receiving regular checks sent in her name to the Emmanuel post office, and she became dependent on them, in order to make ends meet.

After several months, Leifer approached Tzubari asking if she could show her how she signed her name.

While she admitted feeling odd about the request, Tzubari said she complied, telling herself that Leifer had only been trying to help.

From that point on, however, Tzubari stopped receiving the checks.

“I asked her where the donations were and she just told me that they hadn’t come,” the mother of six recalled.

When she approached Leifer several months later, Tzubari said her upstairs neighbor gave her a few shekels and told her there would not be anymore donations.

“I went to the post office shortly thereafter and was told I had received plenty of checks, but that someone had already signed for them,” Tzubari said.

The woman added that when she approached Leifer about the issue, the former principal said that her husband was friends with the owner of the post office and that Tzubari would never be able to receive her checks.

Tzubari said that she reported the matter to the police, but that nothing was done.
Well this too is angering news, that the police failed to deal with the issue. Could've been the leftists there who turned their backs, proving Yaakov Litzman wasn't the only one guilty of aiding and abetting such criminal behavior.

And this isn't the only alarming matter about this case. It turns out, according to more reports about the police investigation against Yaakov Litzman, that he defended at least 10 more sex offenders besides Leifer:
Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman allegedly helped at least 10 serious sex offenders obtain improved conditions, including home visits and other benefits, by pressuring state psychiatrists and prisons service officials, according to a report Tuesday.

Litzman, who hails from the Gur Hasidic community, has been accused in the past of using his influence to protect Malka Leifer, who has been fighting extradition to Australia for allegedly abusing students at a Jewish school there.

According to Channel 13 news, Litzman is suspected of a pattern of pressuring corrections officials to be lenient with other ultra-Orthodox offenders as well.

[...] In March, Channel 13 reported on a second police probe in which Litzman and his chief of staff are suspected of pressuring a psychiatrist, Moshe Birger, to ensure that another imprisoned sex offender close to Litzman’s Gur sect was placed in a rehabilitation program.

Participation in the program can lead to home-visit rights and early release from prison.

[...] According to Tuesday’s report, Channel 13 has now amassed evidence in at least 10 cases, some of which are reportedly being examined by police, in which Litzman is accused of pressuring state psychiatrists and other officials in the cases of sex offenders.

The offenders include convicted pedophiles and rapists, the report said.

“Litzman and his staff reached the point of actual conflict with relevant officials, which helped lead to tensions between the Prisons Service and the Health Ministry,” Channel 13 said, adding that several psychiatrists who faced the alleged pressure have given statements to police.

Part of the new accusations concern Litzman’s former aide and now freshman UTJ lawmaker Yaakov Tesler, who allegedly pressured the Prisons Service to allow home visits for convicted murderer-rapist Tal Tzarfati while he served a 14.5-year sentence for the killing of a young woman in Tel Aviv.

In a brief confrontation between Hamakor and Tesler in a Knesset cafeteria shown in the Tuesday broadcast, Tesler defended his actions.

“Any appeal I receive from a person asking for help, I don’t ask, are they a sex offender or not a sex offender,” he told the channel’s reporter. “Every request I receive, regardless of who it is, I take care of it.”

There was no immediate response from Litzman.

It is not yet clear exactly how many of the cases involved Haredi convicts, a key factor for Hamakor’s charge that Litzman and Tesler’s actions constitute discriminatory protection of sex offenders due to their religious affiliation.
The most offensive thing about the other suspect is that he clearly doesn't ask whether they're guilty or not, and obviously doesn't make any effort to determine this on his own, or do research. At this point, it makes no difference whether the convicts are Haredis or not. What matters is that Litzman and his former aide are willingly defending anybody who would commit such horrific crimes as rape and murder. They should resign their posts and be prosecuted for the abominations they committed.

The PLO doesn't care about economy

And to demonstrate how hateful they are of the Trump administration, they're boycotting an economic summit Bahrain's holding as part of Trump's middle eastern plans:
The Palestinian Authority announced that it would boycott an economic conference which will be held in Bahrain next month in support of the Trump Administration's Middle East peace plan.

PA Information Minister Nabil Abu Rudeina said that the conference would be a meaningless meeting that was part of a meaningless plan.

"An economic agreement, with no political discussion on its side, will fail miserably, and we will not accept any proposal that does not include the basis for the establishment of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital," declared Abu Rudeina.
They've done nothing but spend any money they've made until now on funding terrorists and their families, so it's no surprise they'd shun a program meant to help the people living under their dominance. Such is the way of Islamofascists, to build a socialist regime that ruins everyone.

Ultra-Orthodox in New York attended anti-vaccination rally

The Haredi communities in New York like the Satmar aren't improving their awful image by taking up anti-vaccination stances and attending a rally to that effect:
An ultra-Orthodox rabbi falsely described the measles outbreak among Jews as part of an elaborate plan concocted by Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York to deflect attention from “more serious” diseases brought by Central American migrants.

A pediatrician questioned whether Jews were being intentionally given “bad lots” of vaccines that ended up giving children a new strain of the virus. And Andrew Wakefield, the British doctor whose study linking measles vaccines with autism was widely discredited and condemned, appeared via Skype to offer an almost apocalyptic vision of a world in which vaccines were giving rise to deadlier immunization-resistant diseases.

“We Hasidim have been chosen as the target,” said the rabbi, Hillel Handler. “The campaign against us has been successful.”

Since the measles outbreak began last fall, the health authorities have embarked on a sweeping and exhaustive campaign, repeatedly urging people to get vaccinated and fighting the spread of misinformation. They have made special efforts in the ultra-Orthodox communities of Brooklyn and Rockland County, N.Y., where the disease has been spreading most quickly.
Sigh. While the illegal immigrants trying to penetrate the USA do have even more awful diseases, that's still no excuse for opposing health measures to protect against illnesses, and they shouldn't act like measles can't have terrible effects.
But the rally on Monday in Monsey, a Rockland County hamlet about 30 miles northwest of New York City, vividly illustrated how the anti-vaccine fervor is not only enduring, but may be growing: Hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jews packed a ballroom for a “vaccine symposium” with leaders of the anti-vaccination movement.

Organized by a Monsey-based Jewish group, the event also showed how the movement was gaining ground: Greg Mitchell, a Washington-based lobbyist who represents the Church of Scientology, attended the meeting and addressed the crowd, offering to be their “voice in the public-policy game.”

The gathering was denounced by local elected officials, health authorities and some ultra-Orthodox rabbis, who said the speakers were spreading propaganda that could cause the outbreak to deepen, risking the health of countless people.
Wow, those who organized this gathering sure did get hold of the worst possible movements to back them up.
The event was held in a large ballroom. As is customary at ultra-Orthodox gatherings, the men were separated by an improvised wall from the women. Speakers were introduced and applauded as if they were celebrities.

The remarks — and the rapt audience — illustrated how the anti-vaccination movement can exploit fear and anxiety within relatively insular communities, especially religious ones, to undercut scientifically sound warnings from health experts.

“They are doubling down and increasing their messaging — capitalizing on fear,” Dr. Jane Zucker, the assistant commissioner of immunization for the New York City health department, said in an interview. “Parents are afraid of who and what to believe.”

Rabbi Handler, a 77-year-old from Brooklyn who said he was a Holocaust survivor, set the tone for the night, claiming that Jews were being persecuted as disease carriers and were being attacked on the street in New York City for sneezing. (The Anti-Defamation League has strongly objected to the appropriation of Holocaust symbols by vaccine critics.)

Mr. de Blasio has issued a public health emergency for four ZIP codes in Brooklyn where ultra-Orthodox Jews live. That decision appeared to have earned him the ire of Rabbi Handler, who described Mr. de Blasio as a “sneaky fellow” and a closet German — “Wilhelm, his real name, was named after Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany.”

(In fact, none of this is true. Mr. de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm Jr., and later decided to take his mother’s last name as his own after becoming alienated from his father.)

In a telephone interview on Tuesday, Rabbi Handler sought to soften his anti-vaccine remarks.

“I don’t mind if someone takes a vaccine. It’s not my business,” he said. “What am I, a fascist? Am I going to bring down the law?”
If he seeks to discourage vaccination even remotely, he is bringing down the law. His exploitation of the Holocaust and comparisons to a health-based issue are disgusting.
The pediatrician who spoke on Monday night, Dr. Lawrence Palevsky, is regularly cited in pamphlets circulated in New York City that urge women not to get their children vaccinated. His views have no basis in science, experts said.

At the rally, he talked at length about mutating viruses and falsely claimed that failed vaccines were producing a new strain of measles. Women scribbled into notepads as he spoke. Others filmed his comments, sending them to their contacts on WhatsApp. Essentially, he said, there were no studies available to show how the vaccine affects the human body.

“Is it possible that the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine that is somehow being given in this lot to communities in Williamsburg and Lakewood and Monsey, maybe in Borough Park, is it possible that these lots are bad?” he asked, referring to areas in New York and New Jersey with large ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities.

“It’s fascinating because we’re told how contagious the disease is, but somehow it’s centered in the Jewish community.”

Dr. Palevsky could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.

Mr. Wakefield, who was stripped of his medical license in his native Britain some two decades ago for fraudulent claims linking vaccines to autism, accused the health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of misleading the public. But before doing that, he insisted on his own innocence.

“I wanted to reassure you that I have never been involved in scientific fraud,” he said via Skype from a darkened room, his face appearing eerily white as it was projected onto two large overhead screens. “What happened to me is what happens to doctors who threatened the bottom line of the pharmaceutical companies.”

Rockland County has the highest number of recorded cases after New York City. But there are other pockets of large outbreaks as well, and not all of them in are in religious communities.
Point: depending on the circumstances involved, one community may have transferred the illnesses they enabled to another. And the reliance they have on fraudulent doctors is disturbing.

Here's another article telling even Israel's Haredi communities have been affected:
What do Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, Safed, Beitar Illit and Bnei Brak have in common? They are all ultra-Orthodox cities, and all hold the Israeli record for measles outbreaks. Other cities with a large Haredi majority— Tiberias and Modi'in Ilit — are also at the top of the chart.

While it's clear the ultra-Orthodox public leads the anti-vaccination trend, Dr. Menahem Chaim Breier, vice chair at the Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Center in Bnei Brak, is certain there is nothing ideological about Haredi people choosing not to vaccinate their children.

According to Breier, a sense of naivety and a belief that "God will stop diseases and not vaccines" are outdated perceptions of the ultra-Orthodox public.

The members of the community are keen to look after themselves, says Breier, referring to the religious law that states one must "take care of his life."

So what is it that makes the ultra-Orthodox public susceptible to anti-vaccine propaganda?

The lifestyle of the ultra-Orthodox community, says Dr. Breier, is behind the measles epidemic.

The fact that the community keeps to itself and doesn't mix with other sectors of the population makes fake news a lot easier to spread, and the truth much more difficult to expose.

This is backed by some evidence: the more a Haredi community is cut off from national media, the more measles cases it has suffered in the recent outbreak.

For instance, the extremely insular Satmar Hassidic community in New York has a higher rate of measles outbreaks than other Haredi communities.

"This sect of bastards (who preach against vaccinations) can have a field day in such communities, since the ultra-Orthodox are far less exposed to the media," says Breier.

"They feed lies to the rabbis and the public and distribute ridiculous pamphlets. These are people with mental issues, they're officially mental."
I already knew they were anti-Israel in their own way. Now we know they're anti-health responsibility too. I figure this argument has some logic to it, and explains another reason why insularity is so dangerous. And now, in the Satmar enclaves, that insularity's taken a toll. A pure disgrace.

Corbyn runs amok again

British Labour party overlord Jeremy Corbyn's been active in anti-Israeli activities again, supporting a march for the PLO attended by the antisemite Ahed Tamimi:
An estimated 3,000-4,000 pro-Palestinian activists marched through London on Saturday, calling to “free Palestine” and for an end to “unprecedented attacks” on Palestinians by Israel.

Marchers — who chanted “Palestine will be free” and demanded a “right of return” for Palestinian refugees, the Guardian reported — were commemorating the 71st anniversary of the “Nakba,” or disaster, as Palestinians call the events surrounding the formation of the State of Israel.

Leading the march was Ahed Tamimi, an 18-year-old who became an icon of the Palestinian cause after she was jailed for slapping an Israeli soldier on film.

[...] Ahead of the protests Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn expressed his support.

“We cannot stand by or stay silent at the continuing denial of rights and justice to the Palestinian people,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “The Labour Party is united in condemning the ongoing human rights abuses by Israeli forces, including the shooting of hundreds of unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza… demanding their rights.”
Ugh. This is bad enough. Even more horrible is that Hamas is overjoyed at Corbyn's backing:
The Hamas terrorist group on Thursday thanked British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for his message of solidarity to a pro-Palestinian rally in London, The Telegraph reported.

“We have received with great respect and appreciation the solidarity message sent by the British Labor Party Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to the participants in the mass rally that took place in central London,” the group said in a statement.

The message follows last weekend’s march in London in honor of “Nakba Day”, on which Arabs mark what they view as the “catastrophe” of the establishment of the State of Israel.
The real catastrophe will be if Corbyn's elected, and Theresa May's disastrous mishandling of both the UK's security and Brexit are only facilitating his rise to power. This is one of the worst moments taking place in modern Britain.
