UK Labour leader refuses to denounce Hamas, Hezbollah
Britain’s Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn has refused to give in to calls from Zionist officials and British-Israeli lobby to denounce Islamic resistance movements Hamas and Hezbollah, vowing to continue talking to the two groups.
According to the reports, the leader of the opposition has come under pressure from a number of Labour lawmakers, Israeli regime Ambassador to London Mark Regev and Zionist lobby leaders in the UK to distance himself from Labour politicians’ recent remarks condemning Israeli crimes against Palestinians, as well as groups fighting against the Tel Aviv regime’s occupation of the Palestinian lands.
Labour MP Naz Shah resigned as an aide to the party’s shadow chancellor last week after being forced to apologize for backing calls for Israel to “relocate” to the United States.
Also last week, the Labour Party suspended former London Mayor Ken Livingston after he defended Naz Shah in BBC interview and criticized the British media for ignoring Israeli regime war crimes against the Palestinian people. Livingston also said that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler had been a Zionist early in his political career.
