Corbyn's Anti-semitism is a threat to all of ushttps://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/09/03/corbyns-antisemitism-threat-us/ Mr Corbyn's comfort in the company of anti-Semites and other extremists whom he calls "friends" speaks for itself. While he claims to embrace such individuals in the name of "peace", it is a peace that only ever involves the enemies of the West generally and of the Jewish people specifically.

FOII's intervention at the UN Human Rights Council
Colonel Kemp's Testimony at the Emergency Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council on the Deteriorating Situation in GazaYour failure to admit that Hamas is responsible for every drop of blood spilt on the Gaza border encourages their violence and use of human shields. It makes you complicit in further bloodshed.

Hamas and the Exploitation of DeathNonetheless, we must remember it forcefully: Nations have all the legitimacy, protected by international law, to defend themselves against aggression. The poor and innocent Palestinians appearing in those images are neither so poor nor so innocent. They may be oppressed, but by their own corrupt and totalitarian rulers, whether in Gaza or in the West Bank.
