Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn renewed his call for a British arms embargo against Israel after a United Nations Human Rights Council commission of inquiry said that IDF has likely committed war crimes on the Gaza border.
“The UK government must unequivocally condemn the killings and freeze arms sales to Israel,” Corbyn tweeted on Friday. Last year, the Labour Party approved a motion that called for an arms ban to Israel.
United States special envoy Jason Greenblatt attacked the UNHRC report on Gaza in a series of tweets.
“This [commission of inquiry] report is another manifestation of the UNHRC’s clear bias against Israel, which remains the only country that the Council dedicates an entire standing agenda item to targeting. When will the HRC speak the truth?” he wrote.
“Hamas behaved with reckless irresponsibility [and] disregard for human life when it incited VIOLENT (not ‘civilian’) protests, breaches [and] attacks at the Gaza fence-line,” Greenblatt wrote. “Hamas is directly responsible for the miserable situation of the people of Gaza.”
Callow Corbyn never lets facts get in the way of his visceral hatred for Israel. His mindset is fixed. Like the Wicked Witch of the West, he rides his Marxist broomstick on the prevailing wind, as long as that wind is blowing against the Jewish state. He resides in a permanent Ozian world, where small-minded dwarfs reign supreme and the yellow brick road towards yet another failed Arab state remains, for him and his ilk, a route to Nirvana.
