Jeremy Corbyn could leak secrets to Russia & Iran, Donald Trump is warned

Washington DC based think tank the Hudson Institute has warned U.S. President Donald Trump that Britain's Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn might leak classified US information to Russia and Iran if he were to become prime minister.

Author of the report, which is due to be published this week, Dr Azeem Ibrahim, professor at the US army's war college, suggests Jeremy Corbyn cannot be trusted.

Analysis of the Labour leader's attitudes towards the Kremlin, and Vladimir Putin in particular, has prompted the warning to Trump.

The report goes as far as to suggest that If Corbyn were to be handed the keys to No 10, Britain's NATO membership could be  'downgraded' in an effort to avoid sensitive and highly classified information being passed on. This, of course, would be the greatest of gifts that Putin could wish for.

Corbyn's reaction to events including the Salisbury attack, and his attitudes towards Russia, give clear reasons for concern, says the report.

Corbyn publicly voiced opposition to sanctions imposed on Russia following the shooting down of civilian airliner Flight MH17, in which 298 passengers died, including 10 UK citizens. He also defended Putin personally following the illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014.

Russia is not the only threat to peace and stability championed by Corbyn: seemingly every despot, every terrorist, indeed any deranged group seeking to undermine western democracy receives his blessing. 

As tensions escalate by the day in the Gulf, Corbyn remains supportive of the regime, constantly condemning all criticism of, or actions against, it.

In 2014, he Corbyn spoke at the Islamic Centre of England at an event celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution. There he shared a platform with Sayyed Hassan al-Sadr, the British representative of Muqtada al-Sadar, who led the Iranian-backed Mahdi Army militia, which killed at least 70 British soldiers between 2004 and 2008, as well as thousands of Iraqi civilians.

Corbyn also invited Iran-backed Islamist militant group Hezbollah to the House of Commons in 2009.

He has referred to what he calls the 'demonisation' of Iran, and is on record as having taken payments of around £10-20,000 for appearing on Iranian state TV.

Following recent attacks on two tankers in the Gulf, Corbyn leapt to the defence of the regime, stating that there was 'no credible evidence' of Iranian involvement.

The Labour leader has consistently supported anti-democratic and anti-western regimes such as Cuba and Venezuela, as well as terrorist organisations such as the Provisional Irish Republican Army and the Palestine Liberation Organisation.

Corbyn is reported to have laid a wreath at the graves of the Black September terrorists who executed 11 Israeli athletes and a German police officer during the 1972 Munich Olympic Games.

The laying of a wreath by Jeremy Corbyn on the graves of the terrorists who perpetrated the Munich massacre and his comparison of Israel to the Nazis deserves unequivocal condemnation from everyone – left, right and everything in between.

'It was out-and-out terrorism in the heart of Europe, in Munich,' said Zuroff, chief Nazi-hunter at the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, 'This is something you would assume would get universal condemnation'.
