More grown up debate. Or maybe not
Hamas and Hezbollah: Tobes claims Corbyn “had referred to terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as his ‘friends’”, suggesting that meeting with their representatives is symptomatic of his being “loony left”. As Corbyn’s team has pointed out, “The term ‘friends’ was used purely as diplomatic language in the context of dialogue, not an endorsement of a particular set of views … Jeremy has met many people with whom he profoundly disagrees, in order to try to promote a peace process”.
Dyab Abou Jahjah: Tobes reminds his readers “The Sun revealed yet another link between Corbyn and an out-spoken anti-Semite, Islamist activist Dyab Abou Jahjah, who dubbed the 9/11 terror attacks ‘sweet revenge’”. That would be the same Dyab Abou Jahjah who met with William ‘Ague in 2009. Is Master ‘Ague he a “loony lefty”, Tobes?
