We haven’t written much recently about Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain’s Labour Party.

In 2015, as he was campaigning for Labour leader, we covered his sordid history, Likely British Labour leader’s creepy associations, including Holocaust deniers, anti-Semites, Jihadist preachers, BDS and Max Blumenthal, among others.

When Corbyn won his party’s leadership, I wrote, Jeremy Corbyn Elected Leader – British Labour really is “Lunatic Left”:

Politically, Corbyn comes from the vicious strain of left-wing European politics that views surrender to Islamism as the highest expression of political correctness, and which couches its anti-Semitism in the rhetoric of anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism.

Since then, the Labour Party has been rocked by anti-Semitic revelations, and Corbyn’s complicity has become more clear.

68 British rabbis signed an open letter decrying anti-Semitism in the country’s Labour Party and calling on the party to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism.

In a rare united position, rabbis ranging from ultra-progressive to haredi Orthodox signed on to the letter.

Labour’s national executive committee is set to meet Tuesday to approve the party’s new code of conduct, which will include a softened version of the alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism. Labour’s definition omits at least four points featured in the original one, including accusing Jews of “being more loyal to Israel” than their own country; claiming that Israel’s existence is a “racist endeavor”; applying a “double standard” on Israel; and comparing “contemporary Israeli policy” to that of the Nazis.

“The Labour party’s leadership has chosen to ignore those who understand anti-Semitism the best, the Jewish community,” the rabbis said in their letter, which was published in The Guardian. “By claiming to know what’s good for our community, the Labour party’s leadership have chosen to act in the most insulting and arrogant way.”

I wish we had given it more coverage.

The latest revelation is one of the worst.

The Daily Mail reports:

A memorial wreath in his hand, Jeremy Corbyn stands feet from the graves of terror leaders linked to the Munich Massacre.

The picture was among a number taken during a service to honour Palestinian ‘martyrs’.

Buried in the cemetery in Tunisia are members of Black September, the terror group which massacred 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics.

One picture places Mr Corbyn close to the grave of another terrorist, Atef Bseiso, intelligence chief of the Palestine Liberation Organisation.

Bseiso has also been linked to the Munich atrocity. Another image shows the Labour leader apparently joining in an Islamic prayer while by the graves.

Last night sources close to Mr Corbyn insisted he was at the service in 2014 to commemorate 47 Palestinians killed in an Israeli air strike on a Tunisian PLO base in 1985.

But on a visit to the cemetery this week, the Daily Mail discovered that the monument to the air strike victims is 15 yards from where Mr Corbyn is pictured – and in a different part of the complex.

Instead he was in front of a plaque that lies beside the graves of Black September members.

The plaque honours three dead men: Salah Khalaf, who founded Black September; his key aide Fakhri al-Omari; and Hayel Abdel-Hamid, PLO chief of security.

Adjacent to their graves is that of Bseiso. All were assassinated either by the Israeli secret service Mossad or rival Palestinian factions.

With his party engulfed in a row over anti-Semitism, the pictures give Mr Corbyn fresh questions to answer about his alleged sympathy for extremists.

The Daily Mail has photos with explanations, including these:

I’d like to think the latest revelation about Corbyn will end his political career. But for someone with his history, it might may raise his standing among the Labour Party.

Britain’s three major Jewish newspapers warned about that Corbyn becoming Prime Minister would mean:

The UK’s three main Jewish newspapers have published the same front page, warning that a Jeremy Corbyn-led government would pose an “existential threat to Jewish life”.
