Corbyn is lifting straight from the Goebbels playbook — terrorizing Jews while playing the victim of these beleaguered, peace-loving people. This is no surprise. Corbyn is pro-jihad. An inveterate Jew-hater who has made numerous antisemitic comments, Corbyn has even stood with “Palestinian” jihadis. So why shouldn’t he rail against the “Zionist lobby,” just like his chums in Hizballah?
“Corbyn wrote ‘we must stand up to Zionist lobby’ over blood-libel cleric’s ban,” by Mathilde Frot, Jewish News, April 2, 2019 (thanks to Wendy):
An article believed to have been written by Jeremy Corbyn calls on “Western governments” to confront “the Zionist lobby” following the arrest of controversial cleric Raed Salah.

“[Raed Salah] wishes to remain here long enough to fight for his name,” it says. “The sadness is that his is a voice of Palestinian people that needs to be heard.”

It continues: “It’s time that Western governments stood up to the zionist lobby which seems to conflate criticism of Israel with antisemitism.”
The article, thought to have been written by Corbyn before he became Labour leader, was discovered by the journalist Iggy Ostanin.
It criticises “the hysteria” that followed coverage of the ban in the Daily Mail, Evening Standard, Telegraph and Jewish Chronicle.
“The hysteria grew but even as late as Monday the Home Secretary seemed incapable of saying whether there was a travel ban on him or not,” it says.
“This bizarre turn of events seems to indicate that the right-wing press has more power than rationality.”
Salah was detained for 21 days during a visit to the UK in 2011 on the orders of Home Secretary Theresa May but later won a partial victory in a claim for damages.
The High Court ruled Salah was wrongly detained for two days during which he was not told the reason for his arrest – but that the rest of his detention had not broken rules.
Salah has been accused of antisemitism and of allegedly making the blood libel that Jews drink the blood of children during a speech in East Jerusalem in February 2007….
