UK Labour Leader Corbyn Vows to Recognize Palestinian State if Elected

UK Labour Leader Corbyn Vows to Recognize Palestinian State if Elected

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British opposition Labour Party, said on Wednesday that he will recognize “the state of Palestine” should the party win the next general election. “In order to help make the two-state settlement a reality we will recognize a Palestinian state as soon as we take office,” Corbyn told the delegates at the Labour Party’s annual conference.

The pledged was greeted by a standing ovation and delegates waving Palestinian flags, British newspapers reported.

Corbyn, who once called the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah “friends,” criticized President Donald Trump for moving the US embassy to Jerusalem and cutting the funding for the United Nations’ Palestinian agency UNRWA — an organization mired in financial scams and accused of indoctrinating Arab children in Jihad terrorism and antisemitism.

In the 2017 general election, Corbyn’s Labour narrowly lost to the ruling Conservatives, gaining further seats in parliament after securing 40 percent of the vote. Labour is calling for an earlier election if the British parliament rejects Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal reached with the European Union.

The UK newspaper Metro covered Labour leader’s statement at four-day conference in the city of Liverpool:

Jeremy Corbyn received a standing ovation as he pledged one of his first actions as prime minister would be to recognise a Palestinian state.

‘In order to help make the two-state settlement a reality we will recognise a Palestinian state as soon as we take office,’ he said.

People waved Palestinian flags from the audience as he made the announcement at the Labour Party conference in Liverpool this afternoon.

The Labour leader’s speech comes at time when his party faces increased public scrutiny over antisemitism within its ranks. Antisemitic hostilities now run so high in the party that Jewish Labour MP Luciana Berger needed a police escort to attend the Liverpool conference. “A Jewish Labour MP has been given protection from two police officers while attending the Labour party conference as the party’s row over antisemitism continues,” the newspaper Metro reported.

Mainstream media showered Corbyn with praise for his hour-long tirade at the conference.

Corbyn “vows to fight Capitalist ‘Greed,'” claimed the New York Times in its headline. British newspaper The Guardian lauded the Labour leader’s speech for “catching the zeitgeist.” The London-based business daily Financial Times praised his speech for offering a “coherent analysis of the challenges facing the nation.” The Labour leader “succeeded in making his radicalism appear like the new normal,” the newspaper added.

Corbyn’s long-standing association with the Palestinian terrorist groups came once again under scrutiny in August after the Daily Mail published photos showing him laying wreath at the graves of Arab terrorists behind the massacre at the 1972 Olympics. The 2014 images show Corbyn holding a wreath commemorating Palestine “martyrs” as he stood “feet from Black September members who killed 11 Israelis,” Daily Mail reported.

A few days later, the Labour leader was pictured doing an Islamist four fingered salute at the notorious Finsbury Park Mosque, a place once dubbed as “Al Qaeda guesthouse” by the media for its ties to Islamic terrorists. Later, Corbyn’s spokesman claimed that he was “standing up for democracy” in Egypt by using the gesture popularized by the Muslim Brotherhood, London-based Evening Express reported.

Once an obscure Labour backbencher, Corbyn was capitulated to the helm of the party by a grassroots campaign in 2015, riding on the support of left-wing activists. He has championed various radical left causes during his political career spanning over four decades.

Corbyn wrote a regular column in Morning Star, a newspaper closely linked to the Communist Party of Britain. The Labour leader’s key adviser Andrew Murray, was until recently a Communist party member. At the height of the Cold War, Corbyn was an active member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), a KBG-funded communist front-group. He still serves as the vice-president of the organization.

The Labour leader’s new-found zeal for the Palestinians may be closely linked to the changing demographics of the country. Bashing the Jewish state and championing the “Palestinian cause” can be an effective dog whistle to radicalized Muslims voters. “Labour is no longer the party of the traditional working class,” Economist magazine concluded in June, adding that “Labour’s best chance of holding onto the Midlands lies in mobilising the Muslim vote, rather than in appealing to Jaguar LandRover workers.”

Securing the sizable Muslim vote.

What in the world is wrong with the Brits? On second thought, they are just a little longer on the road to the Communist/Socialist utopia the Left has been promising both there and here.

Seems like half of England wants to commit national suicide, as does half of the United States. The electoral college and perhaps divine intervention bailed us out. Neither will save England.

As a native son of the commonwealth – this is just one more reason to despise the English.

That he’s promising this, just proves he doesn’t understand the realities of the conflict.

A Palestinian State would be very bad … for the Palestinians. (Specifically Hamas and Hezbollah, but they deny basic necessities to their citizens subjects — in addition to using them as human shields — so it’s the citizens subjects that will suffer.)

An internationally-recognized Palestinian State would mean that any rocket or tunnel attacks against Israel would properly constitute an unprovoked act of war from a foreign nation. Palestine would lose international legitimacy and support, and Israel would take their kid gloves off, as well they should.

Corbyn just doesn’t get that Palestine being an “occupied territory” (according to the U.N.) actually shields them from international condemnation (among other things). It’s one reason why they’ve rejected every “two-state solution” ever proposed.

But please, Mr. Corbyn, go ahead and push for it. I for one would love to see the violent elements of Hamas and Hezbollah cleared out and watch the Palestinian people become citizens of a free and prosperous nation.

People like Corbyn imported Muslims precisely so they could pander to them like this. Of course, it’s only a matter of time before they replace him with another Muslim, but I guess that didn’t occur to him.

It sounds to me like Jeremy Corbyn needs to have some sort of accident.

Maybe we can give Palestinians a state in the middle of the Sahara? Then allow Allah to provide for them.

Israelis should not have to put up with Palestinians.

This may win him a lot of votes, as the UK has become a Jew-hating fascist police state. I think that Mr. Churchill, from Heaven, is realizing that he lost the war.

Jordan, the second State, was a good choice before the PLO sough social justice for its leaders. But it’s always been press the Jew, press the Jew, again, and again, and again.

Once an obscure Labour party backbencher, Corbyn was capitulated at the helm of the party by a grassroots campaign in 2015, riding on the support of left-wing activists.

I think you meant “Corbyn was ~catapulted to~ the helm of the party by a grassroots campaign in 2015….”

if Corby wins and does this monstrosity then DJT should pull out of NATO.

we have saved their arses twice in 50 years – wedon’t need to do it again – let them suffer for their arrogant stupidity.

Which one will h recognize, the one in Gaza or the one in Judea and Samaria?

“…Corbyn was capitulated…”

Catapulted. The word is catapulted. Smh

People here bandy the word “revolution” about a lot. But I really don’t think it will happen here first. It’s going to happen in the UK.

Vile Corbyn’s unabashed anti-Semitism and its transparent roots in Leftist traits of perpetually infantile egotism and attention-seeking are odious.

But, beyond that, is this guy running against Abbas to be head of Fatah, or, is he running to be Prime Minister of the U.K.? Corbyn’s persistent focus on, and, obsession with, Israel and the “Palestinians” is decidedly bizarre and unhealthy.
