For John, BLUF: The Left, which used to support Jews, and Israel, seems to be stepping away. Sadly. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Samizdata, by Natalie Solent (of Essex), 13 August 2018.
Here is the lede:
“Jeremy Corbyn: I was present at wreath-laying but don’t think I was involved”, reports the Guardian.Well, he was present at the wreath laying, back in 2014, in Tunisia. The event was commemorating the terrorists involved in the massacre of Israeli Olympic Athletes at Munich, back in 1972.
It was a long time ago, the original massacre, the retaliation and the wreath laying, which was in 2014. But, the question is, where does Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn stand today? I suspect not on the right side of this.
From Guido Fawkes' blog, Order-Order, we have "Corbyn Reported to Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards". Here are the first two paragraphs:
Jeremy Corbyn has been reported to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, over his non-declared visit to Tunis, attendance at the wreath laying ceremony for the masterminds of the Munich Massacre, and inability to be open and honest about his attendance.Read Guido's post to see the three elements cited.
Andrew Bridgen MP has written the commissioner, setting out how Corbyn has potentially breached three key elements of the Code of Conduct.
