British left-winger Jeremy Corbyn has urged western countries to stop arming Ukraine: “Pouring arms in isn’t going to bring about a solution, it’s only going to prolong and exaggerate this war,” Corbyn said. "We might be in for years and years of a war in Ukraine.”
Corbyn is generally regarded as something of a pariah in mainstream UK politics. He has traditionally lent his name to such terrorist organisations as the Palestine Liberation Organisation, the Irish Republican Army, the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, and when in February 2019 Britain's House of Commons passed a ban on Hezbollah, Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party failed to support the ban.
Jeremy Corbyn has a long history of support for Soviet friendly terrorists and anti-Semites: he knows who his friends are, and so do we. His friend Hugo Chavez, a notorious Marxist and anti-Semite, in a Christmas Eve speech in 2005 said, “The world has enough for everybody, but some minorities, the descendants of the same people that crucified Christ… have taken control of the riches of the world"
"Anti-Semitism has festered on campuses, and in the far-Right and hard-Left, but it became mainstream during Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party," said British peer Lord Austin, chair of the anti-extremist campaigning group Mainstream.
"Israel became an obsession on the Left, held to standards never applied to other countries, and Jewish people in Britain were expected to account for a government of another country," said Lord Austin.
Speaking to Al Mayadeen, a Beirut-based TV channel that has carried pro-Russian reporting since Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, Corbyn said “What I find disappointing is that hardly any of the world’s leaders use the word peace; they always use the language of more war, and more bellicose war.”
It is unclear which world Corbyn is referring to. And so it is no surprise that Corbyn, the privately educated contrarian and self-styled champion of the working class oppressed, would support Chavez, the PLO, the IRA, and of course the Putin regime.
