Another ugly expression of hatred towards the Jewish state by the British Labour leader has been exposed, this time in support of BDS.

British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn demanded a boycott of the Arsenal soccer club after it accepted sponsorship from the Israeli tourist board and after Israeli vacation destinations were advertised at the stadium, the UK’s Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
“We must campaign against and boycott Arsenal football club for their arrangement with the Israeli tourist board,” Corbyn told the Palestine Solidarity Campaign Trade Union Conference in 2006. “It is wrong to treat both parties [Israel and the Palestinians] as equals.”
Corbyn is a known Arsenal supporter as well as a known BDS supporter.
Listed as a speaker alongside Corbyn at the conference was Muslim cleric Daud Abdullah, who called for attacks on the Royal Navy if it tried to prevent arms smuggling into Gaza. He also led a boycott of Holocaust Memorial Day.
According to the report, speakers called Israel “the biggest threat to world peace” and ‘the cuckoo in the nest of the Middle East.”
“The revelations will further embarrass the Labour leader as he struggles to contain the ongoing anti-Semitism row,” the Daily Mail noted.
Corbyn and Palestinian Terrorists
Corbyn attended a conference in Qatar in 2012 with Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal and terrorist leaders behind attacks that killed dozens of Israelis in 2001, The Telegraph reported in August.
Last month, the Daily Mail published photos showing that Corbyn laid a wreath and participated in a prayer service in 2014 at the graves of the Black September terrorists responsible for the brutal massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Similarly, the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) revealed last month that Corbyn’s 2015 campaign to become leader of the Labour Party was partly funded by Dr. Ibrahim Hamami of London, who is alleged to be aligned with Hamas, the genocidal anti-Semitic terrorist organization, and retired Professor Ted Honderich, who stated in 2011 that Palestinians had a “moral right” to engage in terrorism.
